Skip to comments.ObamaCare Death Panels will begin their work with Medicare recipients

Barack Obamas namesake healthcare scheme will cut $716 billion from Medicare over the next 10 years. Add to this a dramatic reduction in Medicare related reimbursement for doctors and hospitals and countless seniors may find it difficult to obtain necessary medical treatment.
Following are Medicare facts which most baby boomers may know little or nothing about. But those who must depend upon Medicare over the next decade are going to get a real education; an education in the true nature of death panels and socialized medicine.
1) Medicare is essentially compulsory. People who refuse to join Medicare Part A are not allowed to receive their earned Social Security benefits. On June 30, 2011, U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint and 12 GOP colleagues introduced the Retirement Freedom Act to decouple Medicare from Social Security. On February 7, 2012, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals held that because plaintiffs are...

I wouldn’t want to be on a Death Panel.
There will be lots of aggrieved widowers.
I can only think of one thing to say about this.
Soylent Green is people!!
The Kenyan doesn’t give a damn about kids who are abducted so why the hell should he care about anyone else? Welcome to Utopia liberals.
Someone who happens to be a doctor had a conversation with me in the last year where he said that he can’t understand why Medicare doesn’t want to pay for colonoscopies for folks over 70.
I decided to respond this way: “Conservatives say that they want everyone over 70 to die under Obamacare”....
If you are on Medicare and have been putting off a needed surgery or medical procedure, you might want to consider having it done asap.
Could these be the first supporters of Obamacare aka AuschwitzCare, ya think?
I guess that my 62 yo sister in law who has never gone on welfare, always worked to make ends meet and is now approaching true disable status will be put out to die.
The bastards have already cut her medicare payments, cut off a lot of her required medications making them very expensive and told her that it will be worse under obamacare. But hey, she doesn’t matter, she only plays by the rules and doesn’t accept charity, doesn’t vote for democrats.
My wife is having her insurance covered knee replacement done asap because we can’t trust that it won’t be denied or become cost prohibitive. Yet we are the ones expected to be paying through our noses for worthless illegals and cheating welfare whores who game the system.
When is AR2 going to begin?
When enough of us decide that we've had enough and go 1776 on their sorry @$$e$!
I wasn’t aware that a 62 year old could obtain Medicare.
Can be any age once on disability:
“You will receive Medicare after you receive disability benefits for 24 months. When you become eligible for disability benefits, we will automatically enroll you in Medicare. We start counting the 24 months from the month you were entitled to receive disability, not the month when you received your first check.”
The Death Panels are the secret “fix” for Soc Sec and Medicare funding shortfalls. Reducing life expectancy even one year is a huge benefit.
When the kiddies squirm that grandma got off’d, the regime will offer up some student loan forgiveness chits to salve any pangs of conscience.
Thanks - I wasn’t aware of that.
Medicare eligibility is another large factor in making disability so desirable. Now at 11 million people and growing rapidly.
In 1968 the number was 1/10 of current and there were 51 full time workers for each disabled person.
Now there are 13 full time workers for each person on disability.
There is the possibility she (SIL) could receive both Medicare (via the disability) and Medicaid (due to low income / spent down assets) in at least some of the states. In addition, she might be eligible for Expanded Medicaid in those 24 states that have approved it. None of this is likely to restore the medications, but has she looked into the pharmaceutical company’s low-cost programs? It would be rather extreme if she refused to accept that kind of “charity”, if available.
“My wife is having her insurance covered knee replacement done asap because we cant trust that it wont be denied or become cost prohibitive. Yet we are the ones expected to be paying through our noses for worthless illegals and cheating welfare whores who game the system.”
I had extensive foot surgery done last month for that reason.
I opted to miss our best weather for fishers, kayakers
