It’s only fitting that they would name Obamacare after a man who refused to take steps save a life because it would cost him too much.

It’s basically the jist of the bill in a nutshell.

Well he’s been known for killing someone before their time in the past so I would think this works perfect for the death panels...

They can call it god’s, country’s, Kennedy’s or gottahaveit care, but everyone will still protest and demonstrate against it.

In memory of that great American, Teddy (Chappaquiddick) Kennedy we must pass this bill, unknown by the Congress who would be voting on it but, written by a gaggle of communist twits who would turn this nation into a third world country as quickly as you could bat your eye!

We should take all copies, except one, of the bill and bury them with him. That one copy should be recorded in Library of Congress as the time America almost went communist on the health of Americans...use it as an example of what not to do on healthcare.

...decent quality health care as a fundamental right and not a privilege."

The government does not have the right to create "rights", but it certainly tries its best! The government cannot create privileges either, all it can do is prevent you from something if you do not "qualify" (pass a test affirming your ability).

I fear a government that tries to "create" rights.

I agree. What better name for Obamacare than Ted Kennedy Health Care.

The average citizen is subject to
* all the flaws of socialized health care,
* seriously ill are encouraged to "die and get out of the way" in the words of a prominent Democrat,

while the ruling class, their rich and influential friends will, like Ted Kennedy,
* be averse to giving up -- no expense is too much to provide them with the best health care available.

Yes sir! That's it!

Ted Kennedy Memorial Healthcare

Americans will be calling it the Capaquidick plan.

If your in a hospital and you hear someone in the ER refer to a patient as an “OB”, that would be triage code for “Forget it, she’s a gonner”.

POINT OR ORDER, PLEASE

Not that I doubt for one moment that Ted will be allowed to be buried in Arlington (which I just heard on the news) my review of requirements suggest he is NOT qualified

The closest I can find is this:

"Any former member of the Armed Forces who served on active duty (other than for training) AND who held any of the following positions:

* An elective office of the U.S. Government (such as a term in Congress).

As far as I know, Kennedy served in active duty in the military, so anyone know how one gets a waiver?

Bob Fertik

Bob Fertik is the president of Democrats.com and co-founder of AfterDowningStreet.org


On ABC's This Week with George Stephanopolous, the host asked President-Elect Obama about the number one-ranked question from Democratic activist Bob Fertik: "Will you appoint a Special Prosecutor - ideally Patrick Fitzgerald - to independently investigate the gravest crimes of the Bush Administration, including torture and warrantless wiretapping?" Obama's answer was far from definitive - he said he was still "evaluating" the question, but was more inclined to "look forward as opposed to looking backwards." He did suggest that Attorney General designee Eric Holder would have some say in potential prosecutions.

Here is a question to ask every dimwit and RINO at the town halls or simply in emails and phone calls: If health care is a "right" why does Obama death care, and every socialized health care through out the world, ration health care? If it is a right then they cannot ration it because to do so would take someone's right to health care away from them. However, they want to set up panels and committees to deny health care to the very people they claim have a right to it.

Their faulty reasoning is easy to put to flight if we just ask the right questions and keep the pressure on.

Everyone who didn't see this coming, the using of the Whales death to push health care, raise their hand!

One other point, ask them why the government wasn't making health care decisions for Kennedy in his last days.

The government cannot create privileges either, all it can do is prevent you from something...

Exactly right - and what's left after they prevent you from various freedoms, are called privileges. So, if you think it through, the only way to justify this process is if ALL freedoms are first denied, and then SOME aspects of them are allowed as privileges.

The word "privilege" is the most devious of all legalisms, for even the largest and most munificent allowance of them still indicates the underlying loss of all true freedom. If only people could understand that...

...but they don't, they don't wanna, and they ain't gonna. Compared to the federal government, P.T. Barnum was a piker.
