Skip to comments.I am finally scared of a White House administration
Posted on 08/19/2009 2:13:54 AM PDT by rvoitier
I was not intimidated during J. Edgar Hoover's FBI hunt for reporters like me who criticized him. I railed against the Bush-Cheney war on the Bill of Rights without blinking. But now I am finally scared of a White House administration. President Obama's desired health care reform intends that a federal board (similar to the British model) as in the Center for Health Outcomes Research and Evaluation in a current Democratic bill decides whether your quality of life, regardless of your political party, merits government-controlled funds to keep you alive. Watch for that life-decider in the final bill. It's already in the stimulus bill signed into law.

Hentoff = the sanest leftist in America.
I think he just made his third strike.
He is past middle age. He is Jewish. He just criticized Zero. He’s out.
Hentoff is the old time classic liberal...before all their brains leaked out.
You think so? You mean that little required 'health' ID card won't mean a thing if it is marked 'Dem?'
regardless of political party?
I seriously doubt it. Liberals will be the new "protected" class. Conservatives better watch out. We will be first in line for the chopping block.
please elaborate on "...the Bush-Cheney war on the Bill of Rights...", otherwise, blow-it-out-your-Clymer.
To the writer,You voted for him so deal with it and get in line.
What in the name of Sam blue blazes is that? If you voted for Obama, GO WHINE SOMEWHERE ELSE.
*******To the writer,You voted for him so deal with it and get in line.*******
Bet your butt he voted for him.
Stupid is as stupid does.
The “Center for Health Outcomes Research and Evaluation” is the “death panel” Sarah Palin was talking about. Seems to me a lot of pundits have confused this with “end of life consultation” requirements.
Yes, Sec.804 of H.R.1 (Stimulus Bill)
As we see more and more of these, I wonder what the reaction of the White House will be. Insulting and demonizing the populace hasn’t worked, fear hasn’t worked, trying to rush it through, lying about what’s in the bill hasn’t worked, not even Obama’s innate ability to charm people into doing stupid things has worked. What “Emergency” is scheduled for after the August break? H1N1? Something new?
The STIMULUS BILL has the DEATH PANEL in it????? I’ve seen Freepers say that, but not any writers....is he correct??
I rather doubt he voted for Obama.
Dont let this guy BS you, he would vote for him again tomorrow.
Sec 804 of the Stimulus Bill has the DEATH PANELS???? OMG!! Why the Stimulus Bill I wonder??/ NO ONE READ IT!!!
No he didn’t vote for him...
“Pro-Life Democrat Nat Hentoff Can’t Support Barack Obama Over Abortion”
If you search “hentoff pro life” you’ll get some commentary...I don’t agree with him on alot of stuff but he’s willing to disagree with and criticize the left and he’s honest.
Regardless of party? Sez who? Oh, sure, it won't be overt - but it won't be "regardless" either.
I love this, this goofball railed against the Bush Cheney “war on the Bill of Rights”. That was a completely manufactured story. Not that we have a potentially illegal president who IS actually waging a war against the Bill of rights and the whole Constitution, he is silent on that. What got him going is the deathcare coop? Hey bud, glad you are on board, but this whole dimrat party/media is going about trying to nationalize the whole country and really carry out the karl marx idea of taking from those who have and giving to those who don’t have. This never works because once the haves are all made into have nots, there is nothing left to steal from us.
Regardless of party. Yeah right.
check my tag.
The Center for Health Outcomes Research and Evaluation?
Some senator put Center for Health Outcomes Research and Evaluation in a bill, and expects us to NOT realize he’s saying that the authorization to withhold treatment from anyone for ‘the greater good’, is a CHORE?
Good GOD man, what an idiot.
Did he vote for Obama? It’s good that people are waking up, but they’re late to the party and I’m not offering them a drink.
I, too, wondered if he did. Still, there is so much more than Obama's stance on abortion that should have made people run from him at the polls. If it weren't for the abortion issue, it sounds like Hentoff would have voted for him. "I admire much of Obama's record," ...
H.R.1 from OpenCongress.org
Takes me 20seconds to load it up. Just do a search for, '804' (without the apostrophes)
Let me know if want assistance
In an April 2008 column (which oddly enough is about John McCain), Hentoff stated categorically:
"I cannot vote for Barack Obama because he is an extremist on abortion who refused to even save a sudden live baby resulting from a botched abortion."
Please realize that a certain amount of anti-BushCheney patter in a Nat Hentoff or Camille Paglia article purchases their credibility for criticizing Obama. It gives people on the Left "permission" to read the rest of the article. Not pleasant for us, but it's the only way you can get through to Left-leaning readers.
Don't like that? Then just go on preaching to the choir. Which is what we're doing, 90% of the time.
Good points. Hentoff’s a self-proclaimed “Jewish atheist” who has been a more consistent supporter of the pro-life cause than my former Republican congressman.
