Obama Needs Death Panels

Obama & his dangerous advisers admits We need death panels with ObamaCare,
to make it work right.

A dangerous Democrat Makes shocking admission about Obamacare,
advocates rationing for elderly people older than Obama.

A dangerous Democrat strategist who served as President Obama’s lead auto-industry adviser recently conceded that the rationing of heath services under Obamacare is inevitable,it's bound to happen.

Sarah Palin was right on target about Obam Death Panels.

Steven Rattner advocated that such rationing should target elderly patients, while stating,“We need death panels.”

Rattner was the so-called “car czar,” the lead auto adviser to the Treasury Department under Obama.

Last month, Rattner penned an opinion piece in the New York Times titled “Beyond Obamacare” in which he proclaimed “We need death panels” and argued rationing must be instructed to sustain Obama’s health-care plan. His comments have been virtually ignored by traditional media as the president campaign’s for a second term.

“We need death panels,” began Rattner.“Well, maybe not death panels, exactly, but unless we start allocating health-care resources more prudently – rationing, by its proper name – the exploding cost of Medicare will swamp the federal budget.”

Read all about the idea of “Medical Murder” and find out what Barack Obama would do in a second term, in “Fool Me Twice.”

But in the pantheon of toxic issues – the famous third rail of American politics – none stands taller than overtly acknowledging that elderly Americans are not entitled to every conceivable medical procedure or pharmaceutical.

Obama’s Affordable Care Act “regrettably includes severe restrictions on any reduction in Medicare services or increase in fees to beneficiaries.”

The numbers don’t add up unless Obamacare utilizes rationing.

The problem is, the advisory board can’t propose reducing benefits a k a rationing) or raising fees another form of rationing, without which the spending target looms impossibly large.

Singled out elderly patients for benefit cuts.

No one wants to lose an aging parent.
And with price out of the equation,
it’s natural for patients and their families to try every treatment,
regardless of expense or efficacy.

But that imposes an enormous societal cost that few other nations have been willing to bear. Many countries whose health care systems are regularly extolled – including Canada, Australia and New Zealand – have systems for rationing care.

At the least, the Independent Payment Advisory Board should be allowed to offer changes in services and costs.”

We may shrink from such stomach-wrenching choices, but they are inescapable.

Our goal is not to repeal the New Deal [of Franklin Roosevelt] but to adapt it to the circumstances of the 21st century.

Obamacare because it would “offer a new image” of how Americans view dying; and it would help “patients and their families to recognize that,

Sometimes ‘doing everything’ results in more burden than benefit.

High-tech medicine can prolong life, but for some patients,

it merely draws out the process of dying.

Scumbag republicans don't need "death panels;" they'll simply kill you by denying you healthcare altogether.

It's not a denial of your health care, it's a matter of not forcing other people to pay for you.

Stop being a leech on society and pay your own damn bills. I've got plenty of my own without having to worry about paying yours.
