Human Events: "End of life kills Obamacare?"

human events logo 2.jpg

Thanks to Greg and Kristina at CRC Public Relations for pitching my August 12 blog post, "Section 1233 authors are major proponents of euthanasia, assisted suicide," to news sources. Yesterday Connie Hair at Human Events wrote an in-depth story:

Democrats have spent the past 2 weeks trying to convince elderly American voters that only right-wing whackos could believe that Obamacare will lead to rationed healthcare or "death counseling" to convince those over 65 that they should help cut health care costs by, well, dying....

Section 1233 of H.R. 3200, the House bill that facilitates a government takeover of America's health care system, has recently come under fire for including so-called "end of life" counseling in a "cost cutting" measure. The Senate has pulled the language from their latest version of the bill. (Stay tuned: there's as many new versions every day as aircraft taking off from Reagan National Airport.)

Are these fears real? Perhaps the answer can be garnered from the past activities of the key drafters of the House Obamacare bills....

Comments:

End of Life counciling was in a VA hand out.
President Bush found it and had it removed.

"The circumstances listed include ones common among the elderly and disabled: living in a nursing home, being in a wheelchair and not being able to “shake the blues.” There is a section which provocatively asks, “Have you ever heard anyone say, ‘If I’m a vegetable, pull the plug’?” There also are guilt-inducing scenarios such as “I can no longer contribute to my family’s well being,” “I am a severe financial burden on my family” and that the vet’s situation “causes severe emotional burden for my family.”

.Obama has it put back in

This booklet has been in use since the Clinton administration. When the Bush administration finally reviewed “Your Life, Your Choices,” it suspended its use within the VA system. For some reason, the Obama administration and Shinseki have reinstated the booklet this year. The directive reinstituting the booklet was issued last month.

Jeffrie Deaver's character Katherine Dance would draw the same conclusions. "A to B to X." It is a perfectly reasonable leap of logic to read what is in the bill, look at what the authors have written previously, as well as the writings of those whom the bill gives the authority to right the regulations and conclude that seniors and the disabled will be denied life saving or life prolonging medical care in the name of cost containment.
It is already done in Oregon.

The healthcare bill is beginning to look like one of those scam shell games the hucksters play on the streets of NYC. "Bet'ya can't guess which bill component is going to end up in the final legislation."

Winner take all.

To a conference of Rabbis on August 19th:

"We are God's partners in matters of life and death,"
Obama as quoted by Ben Smith in the Politico, Aug 19th and from the Tweets of Rabbi Jack Moline.

Rabbi Moline deleted all of his tweets from that day with an apology. INTERESTING!

Would others also like to preserve this quote for the record?.

"We are God's partners in matters of life and death," --- the supposition of being God's equal comes from the guy who thinks it's OK to kill babies after they're born, by means of exposure.

Scary.

"We are God's partners in matters of life and death,"
-Obama

What else needs to be said?

I believe his (Obama not God's) megalomania is showing.

Thanks Jill for posting where to find the parts of the healthcare bill that deal with "death panels" and for exposing the agenda of Obamacare. Thanks for exposing who the authors of these parts of the bill are and what their hidden agenda is.

Rush Limbaugh is quoted as saying that we may actually have to amend our constitution, to establish the separation between God and Obama.

He may have something there.......
