GOP – Healthcare Is ‘Socialism, Slavery’ For Americans, A ‘Right’ For Iraqis | Addicting Info

In 2009, Michael Steele, then chairman of the Republican National Committee RNC, called President Barack Obama’s plan to overhaul health care “socialism,” at a National Press Club event.Mr. Steele obviously was not aware of the fact that his very own party- the GOP helped Iraqi lawmakers to draft and pass their constitution with a single-payer guaranteed healthcare system for all Iraqis, in 2005.Article 31 of the Iraqi Constitution, drafted by the Bush administration in 2005 and ratified by the Iraqi people, includes state-guaranteed single payer healthcare for life for every Iraqi citizen.Article 31 also states that healthcare is a “right.” Contrary to this Article, GOP Senator from Kentucky Rand Paul called the right to healthcare a form of “slavery” at a hearing of the Senate HELP Subcommittee on Primary Health and Aging.
