 New Book Documents Leftist Matrix Behind Obama

A book released this week documents for the first time the radical origins of President Obama’s health-care law, revealing the principal author of the foundation for the legislation while tracing the law itself to a group funded by George Soros.

Red Army: The Radical Network That Must Be Defeated to Save America, authored by this reporter, also finds that the founders of the controversial Apollo Alliance, run by a slew of radicals, helped craft the marketing campaign behind the health-care initiative.

On Obamacare, Red Army documents how the legislation, deliberately masked by moderate, populist rhetoric, was carefully crafted and perfected over the course of decades and is a direct product of laborious work by a coalition of radical groups and activists, many with socialist designs. These activists seek to reform the U.S. health-care industry, which accounts for a significant portion of the U.S. capitalist enterprise.

Red Army reveals that the principal author of the foundation for Obamacare is third-generation progressive academic Jacob S. Hacker, a Yale professor who is an expert on the politics of U.S. health and social policy. Hacker is author of Health Care for America, the centerpiece of the George Soros-funded Economic Policy Institute’s Agenda for Shared Prosperity. Red Army finds that Hacker’s proposal for so-called guaranteed, affordable health care for all Americans is the foundation for Obama’s healthcare plan.

Hacker’s plan had its origins in the professor’s multiple other major policy papers on health care, including a 2001 plan for the Covering America project.

In 2003, Hacker first devised a public health insurance program called “Medicare Plus,” which would offer coverage to all legal residents not otherwise covered by Medicare or employer-sponsored insurance. Employers would be required to either provide a minimum level of coverage to their workers or pay a payroll tax.

That plan was the basis for the U.S. National Healthcare Insurance Act, which was first introduced Feb. 2, 2005, in the House by Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich. The act was sponsored by several other congressmen, all members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

Red Army documents how the Progressive Caucus was founded by the Democrat Socialists of America. The book charges the caucus works as a Marxist-socialist bloc in Congress to introduce progressive legislation with socialist intent.

It also documents how a little-known marketing outfit called the Herndon Alliance helped to market Obamacare, even providing suggestions on which words supporters should use the promote the bill. Acceptable phrases include “quality affordable health care”; “American solutions”; “giving security and peace of mind”; “fair rules”; “government as watchdog”; “smart investments, investing in the future”; and “affordable health plans.”

Unacceptable words include “universal health care”; “Canadian-style health care”; “Medicare for All”; “regulations”; “free”; “government or public health care”; and “wellness.”

Red Army finds that the research component of the Herndon Alliance was provided by Celinda Lake, who teamed up with a marketing research firm, American Environics. AE uses social-values surveys to gauge public opinion.

Lake, herself, worked for a number of leftist institutions and unions, including the AFL-CIO and the SEIU. She also serves on the board of directors of the Progressive Congress Action Fund alongside Robert Borosage, whose Healthcare for America Now anticipated spending $42 million in its final push for passage of Obamacare.

AE was founded in 2004 by a team of American strategists and Canadian researchers. In April 2005, current AE managing partners Ted Nordhaus and Michael Shellenberger started AE’s American branch. One year before, Shellenberger did imaging for Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez.

Nordhaus and Shellenberger co-founded the Apollo Alliance sometime around 2002 and were two of its original national board members.

Red Army exposes how Apollo helped draft not only the president’s green jobs programs, but also the $787 billion economic stimulus bill and other proposed new energy legislation.

Apollo is led by a slew of radicals, including Van Jones, Jeff Jones, who heads Apollo’s New York branch and is a former top leader of the Weatherman terrorist organization, and Joel Rogers, a founder of the socialist New Party. Obama’s controversial former “green” jobs czar, Van Jones, sits on Apollo’s board.

Meanwhile, several major groups were founded to lobby for the legislation that became Obama’s healthcare law.

Healthcare-NOW, not to be confused with the organization Health Care for America Now, was established in 2004 for one purpose – to lobby on behalf of single-payer healthcare. Healthcare-NOW’s broad base includes socialist, labor, church and community organizations and, most notably, Physicians for a National Health Program.

Healthcare-NOW co-chairmen include Dr. Quentin D. Young, who is considered father of the single-payer movement. Young advised Obama during his days as a senator. Medea Benjamin, co-founder of the radical Code Pink anti-war group, is a member of Healthcare-NOW’s board of directors.

Another major group leading the charge to transform health care has been Campaign for America’s Future. CAF was founded in 1990 by Robert L. Borosage. Roger Hickey, co-founder of the Soros-funded Economic Policy Institute, which Red Army ties to the health-care bill, is credited as being a CAF co-founder as well.

CAF unveiled the lobby, Health Care for America Now, or HCAN, which Red Army documents deceptively maintains that it is a “national grassroots campaign.”

HCAN’s lead member organizations include ACORN; MoveOrg; AFSCME; Americans United for Change, Planned Parenthood Federation of America; SEIU; United Food and Commercial Workers; and the Soros-funded Center for American Progress Action Fund, which is highly influential in advising the White House.
