Posted on 02/14/2009 4:13:23 PM PST by John Semmens
The 1,000+ pages of President Obamas so-called economic stimulus bill contains language establishing a new National Coordinator of Health Information Technology (NCHIT) bureaucracy that will be charged with tracking and prescribing allowable health care treatments for all Americans.
The new bureaucracy was the brain child of Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) nominee, former senator Tom Daschle (D-S. Dak). Health care costs in this country have been getting out of hand because were spending too much on the wrong treatments for the wrong people, Daschle contended. The current anarchic system allows individuals to make selfish choices that may not benefit society as a whole.
We need to impose order on this chaos by factoring-in key social and actuarial data to determine which individuals society should invest its scarce health dollars in, he continued. Expensive therapies must be reserved for only the most deserving. Frankly, some are too old or unimportant to lay claim to these treatments. It will be up to the NCHIT to decide who can and cant be accommodated.
In related news, there is rising speculation that Houston Astros shortstop Miguel Tejada, may be in line for the Secretary of HHS job now that Daschle has withdrawn. Tejadas steroid abuse and subsequent admission that he lied to congress about it is seen as an asset. Tejada has personal experience with a significant health issue, said Presidential Press Secretary Robert Gibbs. Gibbs dismissed lying to congress as something that everybody does, including congressmen themselves. May I also point out that former President Clinton was a perjurer, but that didnt stop him from being a great president.

For the rest of us, it's: Take two aspirin and stand in line again tomorrow.
Actually, with the “Comparative Effectiveness” measure in the Stimulus, this isn’t satire.
What is satire is that it is put so bluntly, but the legalese means the same.
What about ARod, Clemens or Palmiero?
THIS is what will break The Messiah and his Stalinist Congress.
Great one, John. This rivals my all time favorite of your articles, the one you wrote about the wonders of free health care in Cuba. BTW, would you have a link to that one? It was a at least a couple of years ago and I can’t find it on FR.
Seems to believable, another really good one...!
**Miguel Tejada, may be in line for the Secretary of HHS **
It’s getting too hard to find the SATIRE.. I’m hoping the above line is it...
Although with the BS that MULLAH OBAMA has already pulled on us.. appointing Tejada Would NOT Surprise me.
I give up, already.
Won’t be satire for long.
What do yoiu expect form an empty suit with no redeaming qualities.
Supports the murder of the most innocent, takes tax payers money, money that could be better spent at home, and snds it to other countries to support his favorite charity the murder of the most innocent.
He would tell his own children to abort their own baby, his grandchild, if it were to slow them down or be a burden due to not being married.
WHAT A SPINELESS CREEP.
0bama is Hillary’s b!tch.
This is satire dangerously close to the truth.
I told my sister about it and she insisted there was nothing like this in the stimulus bill and if there was something like this, the republicans put it in.
I kept insisting it was there and she said “well why has it not been in the NY Times “,,her paper she reads.
She said the AMerican Public would be marching on DC if this were true,,amazing they aren’t but then most of them don’t know.
Another hit out of the ballpark John. Thanks for the chuckle.
As some have said here, it probably won’t be satire for long at the rate things are going with the Obama Carnival and Magic show.
John, outstanding as usual. Can I have a cyber autograph for when you hit syndication?
