If you are 90 years old & your knee gives you pain & the cure is knee replacement, then the pain killer is likely better than the surgery. When people get old, surgery can lead to a down hill skid with infections or complications & difficult recovery times. Its a benefit vs cost analysis.
Some doctors push to the big buck treatments on our elderly when it is not the best option.
Patients need to be given honest information regarding the pluses & minuses.
Why do you have a problem with that?
She's been brainwashed to think that the IRS is going to determine who is eligible for procedures!!
I would do anything to avoid surgery; especially in advanced age.

Yes, it does. But I'm quite sure these decisions have been made for quite some time - without the IRS deciding it for us and changing the age to 65 instead of 80.
They control our medical decisions now - who gets what and when they get it under the government exchanges.
But you still don't get it though. Correct?

No problem with honest information as long as the government is not involved and the patient has the ultimate choice.

Fox Fearmongers That Health Care Reform Gives The IRS Power To Discriminate Against Conservatives

Fox News' Steve Doocy Suggests The IRS Could Use Health Records To Interfere With Conservatives' Healthcare. Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy suggested that the IRS would be able to access Americans' private health information and meddle in specific health procedures:

DOOCY: Well, this is a little scary. Just think about the nexus of IRS with healthcare and the fact that she -- keep in mind, one of the things from the IG report was, one of the problems with the IRS, was they blamed ineffective management. Well, she was the management, and now she's running Obamacare at the IRS? Going forward, just imagine: okay, so you go in and you're, you're trying to get a doctor's appointment; right? And they go, we see from your tax records -- how would that possibly be possible?-- We see from your tax records that you support the Tea Party or conservative groups. You want a doctor's visit? Three weeks. You want hip replacement? Four years.

Carol listens to Steve Douchebag.

Investigators in Louisiana suspect that an 8-year-old boy may have been inspired by the video game “Grand Theft Auto IV” to shoot his grandmother in the back of the head on Thursday, and he will not be charged with a crime.

CNN on Sunday reported that 87-year-old Marie Smothers had died where she lived at a mobile home park in in Slaughter, Louisiana. A statement from the East Feliciana Parish Sheriff’s Department said that the woman had been the 8-year-old boy’s “caregiver.”

As I've said twice before, it wasn't me in that story. It was passed along in the same email I received.
But it's certainly not hard to believe Medicare suddenly denied that woman treatment under Obamacare.
It was happening everywhere. Physicians are now being bribed with more money to take Medicare patients because Obamacare depends on it and many were leaving it by the droves.
It's the same excuse Hitler's henchmen used...

Talk about twisting! You are the one who is against public education, foodstamps, healthcare...
You are against the poor, have been convinced that they are our countries worst problem, all the while you carry the water for the wealthy. This is typical thinking for a lower middle class person who realizes that they are one or two paychecks away from poverty themselves. It's sad.
I am FOR less government interference in our lives and in the free market so we can keep more of our own money to give away as we see fit - not as Obama sees fit.

I am FOR more jobs and opportunities.

I am FOR school choice and an education system that encourages a disciplined learning environment.

I am FOR helping people help themselves so they can keep their dignity and not become totally dependent on other people.

If you were for all of those things too, there wouldn't be the need for half the country on food stamps and some sort of welfare entitlement.

Who has the better outlook, Lily? You being for dependency and children stuck in poor schools? Or me?

Yeah

It's certainly not because House Republicans didn't try to come up with a budget to reduce federal government spending. It's because Senate Democrats didn't even provide a budget for four years and wouldn't bring up any budget passed by the House for a vote. So they could blame Republicans and call them the obstructionists.
And you along with many others fell for it.
That's what concerns me.
lol! The last budget proposed by the House couldn't get past the cons there!

Because even the most stupid of them realized the Ryan plan was unfeasible.... except for Ryan.

Whew! America dodged that bullet!

Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean (D) on Sunday said Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) "doesn't know anything about healthcare" and questioned his suitability for higher office.

"Ted Cruz may be a very good politician, but he certainly does not know anything about health care," Dean said on CNN's "State of the Union."

The former governor called Cruz's plan for cross-state health insurance purchasing a "terrible idea," saying he wouldn't want Texas' insurance policies affecting Vermont's universal health care.

"So, these are crazy ideas from the far right," Dean said. "He's a slick spokesman and God help us if he ever does get to be anything more than the senator from Texas."

http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/h...
And Howard Dean is so smart that he could be a president, right?

He should run for president and could win because be is so great!

Oh, never mind he did run and lost a colossal loss!!!

Dead is ALREADY a loser!!!

As all Liberals are; losers!

Ted Cruz is smart because he knows Obamacare is turning full-time jobs into part-time, something Liberals idiots like Howard Dean are clueless about it!
