Here we go again. Yet another Member of Congress, while speaking to a receptive, far-left audience, manages to let the truth slip out in terms of the ultimate goal of the healthcare reform legislation. This is Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI) speaking to the liberal media group Democracy Now! on May 5, 2009:

There you have it. Just to clarify, it’s not news that Rep. Feingold supports a single-payer healthcare system. Many other liberal Democrats do as well. But the Obama Administration and the Democratic leadership have known for a long time that they have no chance of passing single-payer legislation. And so they have devised another strategy for getting there – the so called “public plan option”. All the while vigorously denying that the real agenda is to ultimately end up with a single-payer system. Let’s at least give Sen. Feingold (and Rep. Schakowsky) credit for being honest…that’s more than can be said for White House officials and most other liberal proponents of healthcare reform.
