I don't think it's going to be like what is offerred in Chile, because this piece is basically saying that you won't be able to have other coverage, without facing significant penalties.
Aw heck, I’m not even thirty yet. Guess I don’t have to worry about this for a few years...
That's how it will be parsed anyway.
Speaking of parsing didja see Arlen Specter today?
He kept saying he wouldn't vote for a bill that gave the government control over what medical care he could get.
Never once said anything about limiting the care we could get...
Well, the old have a large carbon footprint and are stupid, according to Rev. Al Gore.
I made my comments - pressed "post" and found the thread was locked. So here's my reply anyhow...
Disability is the new welfare - without pesky social workers. It's sad because the cheats are taking away the resources and care from people who are really disabled.
I knew a person once who told me all 12 "kids" (ages from late twenties to early fifties) in the family were on disability and received a social security check every month. That means some members of that family could receive social security for over 60 years. To add insult to injury, this person was told by one of the brothers to "use mental" because it's hard to disprove.
I can assure you, most of these babies this woman had will be receiving social security checks for longer than you or I will be alive - or until they bankrupt the system. At which point they'll get jobs - and the truly disabled - and seniors to old to work - will die.
Why would they direct you to the ‘state’..when this is a federal bill affecting all states? AARP probably helped write this homicidal part of the bill because their healthcare program is ‘losing’ money on ‘old people’.
I am going to call them in a minute. Been kinda busy this morning. Will report back.
I appreciate your saying you are kidding, but I hate to break it to everyone who is posting on this blog that nowhere in this bill about the health boards does it say it is only for senior health. IT IS FOR ANY TREATMENT AT ANY AGE! If you are a thirty year old woman and you develop a non-chemo sensitive tumor and have the genes that predispose you to breast cancer your life expectancy with treatment is only about 30% over 5 years. YOU WOULDN’T QUALIFY FOR TREATMENT BECAUSE OF THE COST VS LIFE EXPECTANCY RATIO THE BOARD WILL USE. Do not ignore the potential for the government to reach into our health care decisions for ourselves and...our...children.THIS IS NOT JUST ABOUT SENIORS
” Bottom line is that on this proposed program, Ted Kennedy right now would be wheeled out in his chair and placed next to the dumpster for the next trash pickup. “
Can we carve out an exception that this only applies to him???
Where are they indeed? This is outrageous and the leftist organizations just toe the line as usual. We need to speak up.
Also email the twits from Maine and Specter.
It seems to me that a few years back, there was some division among the AARP members. It was something to do with where their membership fees were going, and to what issues they were concentrating on, candidates to support, etc.. I wish I could remember what the issue was. I do remember reading that a number of new people who were retiring were more activist (and very liberal!). There was a number of them who were more conservative.
“This man is not operating on all cylinders”
Don’t forget that this is the guy that came up with the “single bullet theory” in the Kennedy assasination.
He’s been non functioning for years.........
Have there been any Soylent Green references yet?
In the old Soviet Union they used to call that the Nomenklatura. If you had the right “name”—i.e., the right party connections—you got treatment. Otherwise...
Also discussed on this thread last week:
The guy that answered the phone was just learning about the bills content. He sent me to the state advocates office. He said that I was the second call he’d gotten about rationed care for seniors. The state advocates phone was busy and I got voicemail.
Please read the full column (link). It provides scary details of the plan and Daschle’s book (Daschle was still influential in advising on this issue).
