Somehow, I don’t think this is going to go over very well with the AARP.

The AARP knows all about it. They agreed with the Obama Administration to the cuts in Medicare providing Medicare was opened up to people between ages 50 and 64 - that way, AARP can sell a new group of people Medicare Supplement Insurance (as approved by the Obama Administration).

The AARP is primarily about selling insurance - protecting the rights of seniors is just a sales ploy.

Men who think like Ezekiel Emanuel need to be contained for the good of society.

The longer their parents live, the less inheritance they’ll get.

Start calling Ft Myers and snow bird papers to ask if the communities like the snowbirds’ business (and relatives’) or not.

Farm agencies & small weeklies. 4-H.

AARP supports it.

They want the “old” people dead so the “newly old” have more resources.

I’m not a member of AARP and detest that my Insurance Company is associated with them.

Treating 65-year-olds differently because of stereotypes or falsehoods would be ageist; treating them differently because they have already had more life years is not.

Yeah, we can have medicare only in reverse. Everyone has full coverage up to age 65, then nothing, can't even see a Doc because it would take up the time which could otherwise be devoted to a 25 or so year old. I'll bet this guy is great with kids having learning disabilities as well.

My friend has this idea.

“While discussing the upcoming Universal Health Care Program with my sister-in-law the other day, I think we have found the solution. I am sure you have heard the ideas that if you’re a senior you need to suck it up and give up the idea that you need any health care. A new hip? Unheard of. We simply can’t afford to take care of you anymore. You don’t need any medications for your high blood pressure, diabetes, heart problems, etc. Let’s take care of the young people. After all, they will be ruling the world very soon.

So here is the solution. When you turn 70, you get a gun and 4 bullets. You are allowed to shoot 2 senators and 2 representatives. Of course, you will be sent to prison where you will get 3 meals a day, a roof over your head and all the health care you need!!! New teeth, great!!! Need glasses, no problem. New hip, knee, kidney, lung, heart? Well bring it on. And who will be paying for all of this. The same government that just told you that you are too old for health care. And, since you are a prisoner, you don’t have to pay any income tax. “

Get the gov out of all of it. Free up the insurance companies to make whatever kind of policies consumers want across state lines. No free care to illegals. Tourists can take out short-time insurance policies when they come in (Mexico does that to Americans for driving cars). Let people & employers make their own decisions. Let the free market set costs of hospitals, doctors, etc.
Get the gov out of healthcare altogether.
For the truly poor let there be charity.

From the paper:
“Additionally, the complete lives system
assumes that, although life-years are equally valuable to all, justice requires the fair distribution of them.”

Whenever politicians start talking about “justice,” you know we are in trouble.

I remember when I was 40 that 75 looked pretty old. Now I am 67 and it doesnt look so old any more. Perhaps it would be nice if this clown figured out that one day he will be 65 and condemned because of his age.

Or maybe he is just rich and can pay his own way and wants the poor Seniors to die.
