Who’s the Commie Behind Obama Care?

Who’s the smiling old gentleman being hugged by Barack Obama? Does the name Dr. Quentin Young ring a bell? Probably not. It didn’t mean anything to me either. But you might want to keep this name cemented in your mind.

For many years, when Obama was in Chicago during his “community organizer days” he repeated spouted the Saul Alinksy rhetoric about single-payer health care system. But how did he come to embrace the single-payer system? Friends, let’s take a walk into Obama’s past…….

When Obama was living in Chicago, an 86- year old retired physician by the name of Quentin Young became a neighbor and friend of Obama. In the 1930 when Young was a teenager, he joined the Young Communist League. From the mid-40s to the late 70s Young was a member of the Communist Party.

In October 1968 he was called to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee, which was probing the extent of his knowledge about the riots that had erupted at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago two months earlier. The Committee accused Young of belonging to the Bethune Club, an organization for communist doctors; the group was named after Norman Bethune, a communist physician who devoted his services to the totalitarian regime of Mao Zedong.                                 Frontpage Magazine

Dr. Young became very active in radical movements during the Vietnam War and even sent a small delegation to communist North Vietnam in 1972. In the late 70s Young also became involved with “Marxist organization known as the New American Movement, which was initially convened by Michael Lerner, an America-hating radical who counseled young people to explore the use of LSD and other hallucinogenic drugs as portals to a greater comprehension of socialist principles”

In 1980 Young founded the Health and Medicine Policy Research Group, a single-payer lobby group whose Board of Directors he chairs to this day. In 1982 Young helped establish the Democratic Socialists of America, which, as the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International, asserts that “many structures of our government and economy must be radically transformed.” In 1987 Young co-founded Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP), a single-payer advocacy organization where he currently serves as national coordinator. In PNHP’s view, government-run healthcare “should be financed by truly progressive taxation.”

In 1995 Young attended the now-famous meeting at the Hyde Park home of former Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, where Barack Obama was first introduced to influential locals as the hand-picked successor to Alice Palmer, a pro-Soviet radical who planned to vacate her Illinois State Senate seat in pursuit of a higher elected office. Young quickly became a friend and political ally of Obama, teaching the latter about the merits of single-payer healthcare. In a 2009 interview with Amy Goodman of Democracy Now!, Young reminisced about the germination of his ideological kinship with the young Obama.

“Barack Obama, in those early days [as a state senator]—influenced, I hope, by me and others—categorically said single payer was the best way, and he would inaugurate it if he could get the support, meaning [Democratic] majorities in both houses, which he’s got, and the presidency, which he’s got. And he said that on more than one occasion….”

So there you have it…….another proof of Obama’s ideology having communist roots.

But Young is by far not the only communist influence:

And here you thought we’d have another boring president like George Bush…Boredom’s looking pretty good by now……..
