Obama's Meddling

I was going to watch the Obama Show last night, but I went out to dinner with my family instead. But from what I have read and heard, the president didn't say anything new; rather, he took some tips from Joe Biden and plagiarized....The Matrix, no less.

Is the president's so-called blue pill the painkiller? It would essentially "make you well," or at least give you the illusion of being well. But hey, it's cheaper.

Remember this April 30th statement?

"You just get into some very difficult moral issues” when considering whether “to give my grandmother, or everybody else’s aging grandparents or parents, a hip replacement when they’re terminally ill."

If it's a moral issue, why is the government getting involved? It can't touch abortion, but somehow it can touch personal medical decisions? It is none of the government's business if, at 90 years old, I want to get a pacemaker and take the chance that I could live another few years. Obama needs to learn that no one wants him and the government meddling in personal medical decisions. No one wants there to be a person, bureau, or what have you, in between them and their doctor. I am not looking forward to the day where someone I or someone I know is denied treatment because it is too expensive [luckily this guy has a shot at life again].

The President is trying, and failing, to garner the amount of support he needs to get this done. And hopefully, this will be the beginning of the end for him. A lot of people think that this is his defining moment. He will either be successful and then be truly unstoppable, or he will fail and never be able to come back from from it. I'm praying for the latter.

Thanks for the posting. This really confirms their intent in section 1233 Advance Care Planning Consultation in H.R.3200 American's Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009.

Obama's healthcare bill requires senior citizens to have counseling sessions telling them how to end their life sooner. Basically people will be required to do an "end of life" plan.

Why aren't people alarmed about this? Does't anyone find this disturbing?

It's just a sign that, yes, they want to ration health care.

ATP: It is VERY disturbing. I feel like they're using it as a way to not have to "deal with" the elderly anymore. It's sad how there is no respect for the elderly in the United States.

C Gen: Yep, they do. It's the only way for them to keep cost down.
