Obama and the Left plans on saving Social Security and Medicare by restricting access to specific care which will lower life expectancy over time. The elimination of specific healthcare will be foisted on the very young, elderly, and others who are terminally ill or severely disabled. Sound a little like “Soylent Green”? (1973 Movie starring Charleston Heston where the population had grown so large that the food sources could not feed the population. The government encouraged assisted suicide, euthanasia, etc then used the human remains to create Soylent Green which was fed to the people… Ultimate Recycling)
Obama is packing his Social Security and Medicare team with people who support rationed healthcare and a highly centralized commission, free from Congressional oversight and control, such as the current head of Medicare, Donald Berwick. Berwick has been quoted as saying: “The decision is not whether or not we will ration care, the decision is whether we will ration with our eyes open”. Of course the eyes are his and not yours.
Now Obama is trying to insert Henry J. Aaron (no relation to Hank Aaron), to head the Social Security Advisory Board. Aaron is a huge supporter of the Obamacare Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) which is an autonomous 15 member committee that will literally decide your life and death, will decide Medicare and Medicaid provider reimbursement levels, covered care, and coverage eligibility. CONGRESS LITERALLY HAS NO CONTROL OVER THE ACTIONS OF THIS BOARD, PERIOD! This is the law today! Aaron supports granting the IPAB even more autonomous powers until it literally controls all facets of healthcare and Social Security.
Aaron believes that to control healthcare costs, we will have to do what the British are doing with rationing:
“They’ll have to do what the British have done: ration some types of costly medical care — which means turning away patients from proven treatments.”
Costly care includes X-Rays, heart by-pass surgery, dialysis, chronic kidney failure, etc. Anyone over 55 will be subjected to intense scrutiny before treatment is granted. Infants that would be born with defects will be killed prior to birth.
In short, according to Obama’s top Medicare Chief and his nominated Social Security head, you are expendable if you cost too much to support….
And why will Obama be tough to beat in 2012?
Beats the heck out of me. Get mad! Join a Tea Party NOW.
