Obamacare is a Trojan horse for government-run health care starting in 2015 -- Marco Rubio predicts liberals will push everyone onto single-payer Medicare -- By Emily Miller, The Washington Times

President Obama promised that we could keep our health care plans and our doctors, but he knew that was a lie. He pretended Obamacare was the endgame. That was also false.

Mr. Obama's objective has always been to entrench the doomed law into our lives so that it would lead to a government takeover of the whole health care system. This maniacal plan is working.

In advance of the March 31 deadline for individuals to enroll, the White House touted this week that 5 million people had signed up for Obamacare.

That sounds somewhat impressive until Jay Carney, the White House press secretary, was unable to answer reporters' questions about how many of those people had actually paid premiums.

We also don't know which of these enrollees are among the millions who were insured last year but were dropped from their plans that didn't measure up the new mandates. Nor do we know how many of those who signed up are the young, healthy people needed to keep the system afloat.

Anyway, Mr. Obama and his cohort in Congress are secretly dancing a jig because the convoluted program was intended to fail. They believe that Uncle Sam makes better health care decisions than Dr. Smith.

"From the very beginning, they wanted a single-payer system of health care," Sen. Marco Rubio told me on the "Shooting Straight with Emily Miller" radio show. "They obviously didn't think they could get that far, so they went with Obamacare."

The Florida Republican said the current trajectory will lead to insurance companies in the exchanges making up their losses from this year with much higher premiums next year, which is when the left will pounce.

"What they want to do is go to the public and say, 'Look, these exchanges prove these insurance companies are greedy. Thats why it's unaffordable. That's why we need the government to be the single health insurance company for the whole country. Let's put everyone on Medicare,'" Mr. Rubio explained about Mr. Obama's strategy.
