Obama's Dr. Mengele Admits Health Care "Reform" Will Kill Old People Sooner
Flopping Aces ^ | 07-25-09 | Mike's America

White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel's brother, a physician, appointed to Obama health care job admits killing old people is the only way to cut costs!

DEADLY DOCTORS O ADVISERS WANT TO RATION CARE By BETSY MCCAUGHEY New York Post July 24, 2009

Emanuel: Believes in withholding care from elderly for greater good. THE health bills coming out of Congress would put the decisions about your care in the hands of presidential appointees. They'd decide what plans cover, how much leeway your doctor will have and what seniors get under Medicare.

Yet at least two of President Obama's top health advisers should never be trusted with that power.

Start with Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the brother of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. He has already been appointed to two key positions: health-policy adviser at the Office of Management and Budget and a member of Federal Council on Comparative Effectiveness Research.

Emanuel bluntly admits that the cuts will not be pain-free. "Vague promises of savings from cutting waste, enhancing prevention and wellness, installing electronic medical records and improving quality are merely 'lipstick' cost control, more for show and public relations than for true change," he wrote last year (Health Affairs Feb. 27, 2008).

Savings, he writes, will require changing how doctors think about their patients: Doctors take the Hippocratic Oath too seriously, "as an imperative to do everything for the patient regardless of the cost or effects on others" (Journal of the American Medical Association, June 18, 2008). Yes, that's what patients want their doctors to do. But Emanuel wants doctors to look beyond the needs of their patients and consider social justice, such as whether the money could be better spent on somebody else.

Many doctors are horrified by this notion; they'll tell you that a doctor's job is to achieve social justice one patient at a time. Emanuel, however, believes that "communitarianism" should guide decisions on who gets care. He says medical care should be reserved for the non-disabled, not given to those "who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens . . . An obvious example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia" (Hastings Center Report, Nov.-Dec. '96). Translation: Don't give much care to a grandmother with Parkinson's or a child with cerebral palsy.

He explicitly defends discrimination against older patients: "Unlike allocation by sex or race, allocation by age is not invidious discrimination; every person lives through different life stages rather than being a single age. Even if 25-year-olds receive priority over 65-year-olds, everyone who is 65 years now was previously 25 years" (Lancet, Jan. 31).

"Communitarianism?" Sounds like ?

There was an Austrian mathematician who died in 2002 at the age of 110. From his obit, "Vietoris proved important inequalities in three papers ... the last having been written at the youthful age of 103 years!" See the bottom of page 1235.

Pray tell, Lord Obama, when would have been a good age to off this man?

Communitarianism is little different than the Nazi concepts of a superior race that must be supported by destroying those deemed inferior.

I have to ask, when did we as a people begin to value life so cheaply? There was a time when we thought nothing of doing whatever was possible to prolong life, now life is no longer valued but is reduced to numbers on a balance sheet. This is not how I was raised nor is this the country I was raised in. There was a time when grandpa and grandma was cherished, loved and wanted but now they are a burden to commune. To paraphrase, a government that can give you health care can take that care away and will.

What is next, take the pill for the community? Budget a little tight at the local clinic so 100 must die to save the bottom line. This is nuts but this is what is being proposed. Someone please tell me I am wrong.

I wish us Jews had power to publicly ex-communicate vermin like Emanuel who advocate concepts that DEFY G-d’s laws.

This is sick.

Sounds like Eugenics to me.

I honestly try to read a lot of Obama’s stuff but it sickens me. I don’t need to be sick if we will be forced to have Obamacare. I may not live through it.

Holy Moley!!!

I'll bet the Prostrate Press will get right on this immediately after they get done with their confessions and reciting their mandatory 100 "Damn Sarahs."

They just need hanging. No trials necessary. Anyone who proposes what these people are proposing, if true, needs to be led out and strung up from the nearest lampost, Mussolini style.

65 is NOT OLD, for heaven’s sake!!!!! What on earth did the Emmanuel brothers’ parents DO to them, to produce such warped minds?

And all the while the deluded are screaming for it to pass, and have no clue that this Healthcare for everybody, is really Healthcare many cannot use, who are supporting Obama in wanting it passed....and the private Healthcare will be done away with...albeit slowly.

The Emanuels are Jews, from the Holy Land. Yet this is exactly how the Nazis started.

A military coup would definitely be justified. The military's obligation is to protect We the People and the Constitution, not merely to "follow orders".

I don’t know why no one seems to have the guts to say it...

1. This is about free, albeit minimal, health insurance for ALL blacks.
2. It makes sure that NO ONE can buy any better coverage. What Obama’s people get, everyone gets.

Obama appointed someone named Cass Sessions? to be a CZAR, who is a friend of his, and Fox gave some “comments” of this guy. Cass S. believes two year olds may be killed as abortion, because they are not fully developed yet, and that your dog can have a lawyer, and sue you in court as the victim. UNBELIEVABLE. This is NO joke people..these people have taken too many drugs or something..and he is a professor as well. Harvard?
