I say if government does takeover Healthcare MORE AMERICANS WILL DIE
I hope he actually says this during the speech tonight.
Obama demands speed limit reduced to 5 mph. People will die if this doesn’t happen!
This is a call to political war, not compromise.
BRING IT ON!!!
End of discusssion!! Kill that monstrosity of a Bill.
Oh! MY! The sky is Falling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OBAMA, you putz
“act” on the ROE in Afghanistan- 4 Marines died this week because of your stupid legal advisors running the war like we’re playing midnight bsaketball over there
But, Sarah Palin indicated how to handle this this morning in her own statement...
"We often hear such overblown promises from Washington. With the facts in hand, tell them that this time we're not buying it." Sarah Palin - September 8, 2009
A steadfast, growing, purposeful, committed opposition to the destruction Obama and those who support him are causing has formed. Against him and the assinine foolishness associated with trying to transform this nation into a marxist construct, something that has proven to be so abjectly disasterous and failing everytime it has been tried in history. The Health Care issue has turned over this ant hill, and now it is being reflected in all of the polls.
Obama, the DNC, the far left and the MSM all fear this rising opposition and are finding they are incapable of controlling it or its spread. That is why they are desperately trying to demonize and categorizing traditional Americans. But the slumbering giant has stirred, and he is waking up hopping mad.
That would fit in with the proposed soda tax. However, his constituency won't stand for a tax on KFC.
Right, just like if we didn’t do stimulus that the unemployment rate wouldn’t go past 8%...OOPS!
YEP....... I FEEL SICK!
Die of what ? Starvation from being unemployed?
Now this low life scumbag potus is going to try to play on words again?
(AMERICANS WILL DIE IF WE DON’T)
You POS! AMERICANS WILL DIE IF WE DO!!!
People will die with or without health care...unless Obama is the anti-christ.
I am sure this was in his first school speech too.... guranteed he was going to tell the kids that is their parents didnt support health reform they could die from H1n1
It is amazing how elected officials sent to Washington to serve the people are always dictating and demanding....
—oh and exempting them from that which they are demanding of and dictating to the masses.
Where have we seen this scenario before?
In the vast celestial timeline, health-care for this tiny tine of the comb of time we call the existence of America, has sparked the crescendo chorus “the time is NOW” “We cannot wait a second longer!” lest the peoples of this country and world die.......utter HORSESHIT.
This from a man who left infants to die on a shelf in hospital closets (because they were unfortunate enought to SURVIVE AN ABORTION ATTEMPT AND BE BORN ALIVE).
"1,000 cancer patients 'refused treatment'
Charities warned that patients with less common forms of cancer were being discriminated against, while others condemned the system as a scandal.
Patients and their doctors can appeal for the NHS to pay for drugs not currently licensed for that type of the disease.
But one in three applications were turned down in the last three years, leaving patients having to pay up £20,000 for the medication themselves."
"Mass. Pushes Rationing to Control Universal Healthcare Costs (RomneyCare)
A 10-member Massachusetts state healthcare advisory board unanimously recommended
that the state begin rationing healthcare to keep the states marquee universal health care program afloat financially.
The July 16 recommendations, the Boston Globe explained, would result in a situation where patients could find it harder to get procedures they want but are of questionable benefit if doctors are operating within a budget.
And they might find it more difficult to get care wherever they want, if primary doctors push to keep patients within their accountable care organization.
The Globe stressed that the recommendations would dramatically change how doctors and hospitals are paid, essentially putting providers on a budget as a way to control exploding healthcare costs and improve the quality of care.
"Budget" is a more politically acceptable word for rationing.
The Globe also noted that consumer advocates said patients are going to have to be educated about the new system. Yes, apparently they will have to get used to having their healthcare rationed.
"Massachusetts Universal Healthcare System Breaking Down Already
When Governor Mitt Romney instituted a universal healthcare plan for Massachusetts in 2006 he proclaimed it a conservative idea.
But has it worked? Has it been successful?
For a time, many thought it might but cracks in the system are already being seen.
These cracks are instructive as a lesson on how Obamacare will crash and burn just like Romneycare is now in the process of doing.
One of the early claims that helped push Romneycare through to law was the insistence by its supporters that Emergency Room visits would fall as more and more citizens became covered under healthcare insurance.
Since ER care is far more expensive than a doctor's care, it was thought that more people with insurance would ease the overcrowding of ERs as well as lower the overall costs of healthcare.
However, a flaw in this logic has been seen throughout the state. As more people became insured, more people demanded the care of doctors. These doctors became overloaded with patients and waiting lists for doctors got longer and longer.
As a result, ERs in Massachusetts have not seen a downturn in visits. On the contrary, it seems that ER visits are actually on the upswing in the Bay State. In fact, in 2007 they were higher than the national average by 20 percent...
"Hospital patients 'left in agony'"
"Patients were allegedly left screaming in pain and drinking from flower vases on a nightmare hospital ward.
Between 400 and 1,200 more people died than would have been expected at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust over three years, a damning Healthcare Commission report said.
The watchdog's investigation found inadequately trained staff who were too few in number, junior doctors left alone in charge at night and patients left without food, drink or medication as their operations were repeatedly cancelled.
Patients were left in pain or forced to sit in soiled bedding for hours at a time and were not given their regular medication, the Commission heard.
Receptionists with no medical training were expected to assess patients coming in to A&E, some of whom needed urgent care.
Sir Bruce Keogh, medical director of the NHS, said there had been a "gross and terrible breach" of patients' trust and a "complete failure of leadership".
The Healthcare Commission's chairman Sir Ian Kennedy said the investigation followed concerns about a higher than normal death rate at the Trust, which senior managers could not explain.
He said: "The resulting report is a shocking story. Our report tells a story of appalling standards of care and chaotic systems for looking after patients. These are words I have not previously used in any report.
"There were inadequacies in almost every stage of caring for patients. There was no doubt that patients will have suffered and some of them will have died as a result."
Julie Bailey, 47, was so concerned about the care being given to her 86-year-old mother Bella at Stafford Hospital that she and her relatives slept in a chair at her bedside for eight weeks.
She said: "We saw patients drinking out of..."
"Paramedics told: 'Let accident victims die if they want to' in new row over patient rights (UK)"
Health Service paramedics have been told not to resuscitate terminally-ill patients who register on a controversial new database to say they want to die.
It has been set up by the ambulance service in London for hundreds of people who have only a few months to live so that they may register their 'death wishes' in advance.
It is believed to be the first in the country, but other trusts around the country are expected to follow suit to comply with Government guidelines which state that patients' wishes should be taken into account, even at the point of death.
Patients' groups and doctors have welcomed the scheme, but it has met opposition from pro-life groups who say it violates the sanctity of life.
The system would come into play if a cancer patient, for example, was in serious pain and rang 999 for help to alleviate the suffering.
But if the paramedics arrived and the patient was close to death, he or she would not be resuscitated if such a request was registered on the database.
This would also be the case if a patient on the database was being transferred between hospitals, and had a heart attack.
Dominica Roberts from the Pro-Life Alliance said: 'This is very sad and very dangerous. It's another step along the slippery slope, at the bottom of which is euthanasia as we see in Holland. 'Paramedics should be there to save lives. They should not be there to let patients die. The medical profession should not agree with someone's belief that their life is worthless.'"
"National Health Preview - The Massachusetts debacle, coming soon to your neighborhood."
"Three years ago, the former Massachusetts Governor had the inadvertent good sense to create the "universal" health-care program that the White House and Congress now want to inflict on the entire country.
It is proving to be instructive, as Mr. Romney's foresight previews what President Obama, Max Baucus, Ted Kennedy and Pete Stark are cooking up for everyone else.
In Massachusetts's latest crisis, Governor Deval Patrick and his Democratic colleagues are starting to move down the path that government health plans always follow when spending collides with reality -- i.e., price controls.
As costs continue to rise, the inevitable results are coverage restrictions and waiting periods. It was only a matter of time.
They're trying to manage the huge costs of the subsidized middle-class insurance program that is gradually swallowing the state budget.
The program provides low- or no-cost coverage to about 165,000 residents, or three-fifths of the newly insured, and is budgeted at $880 million for 2010, a 7.3% single-year increase that is likely to be optimistic.
The state's overall costs on health programs have increased by 42% (!) since 2006.
What really whipped along RomneyCare were claims that health care would be less expensive if everyone were covered.
But reducing costs while increasing access are irreconcilable issues.
Mr. Romney should have known better before signing on to this not-so-grand experiment, especially since the state's "free market" reforms that he boasts about have proven to be irrelevant when not fictional.
Only 21,000 people have used the "connector" that was supposed to link individuals to private insurers."
A Very Sick Health Plan; Bay States Grand Experiment Fails [RomneyCare]
"The Daily News Record, Harrisonburg, Va. - 2009-03-31 "
"For folks increasingly leery of President Obamas plan to radically overhaul Americas health-care system,
or 17 percent of the nations economy, all this could hardly have come at a better time
that is, fiscal troubles aplenty within Repubican Mitt Romneys brainchild, Massachusetts grand experiment in universal health care."
"Initiated on Mr. Romneys gubernatorial watch in 2006, this experiment has fallen on hard times, and predictably so.
Even though the Bay State commenced its program with a far smaller percentage of uninsured residents than exists nationwide,
RomneyCare is threatening to bankrupt the state. Budgeted for Fiscal Year 2010 at $880 million,
or 7.3 percent more than a year ago, this plan, aimed at providing low- or no-cost health coverage to roughly 165,000 residents,
has caused Massachusetts overall expenditures on all health-related programs to jump an astounding 42 percent since 2006.
So what does Mr. Romneys successor, Democratic Gov. Deval Patrick, propose as a remedy for these skyrocketing costs?
Well, whaddya think? The standard litany of prescriptions (no pun intended) price controls and spending caps, for a start, and then, again predictably, waiting periods and limitations on coverage.
As in Europe and Canada, so too in Massachusetts. And, we feel certain, everyone from Mr. Romney to Mr. Patrick said, It would never happen here.
But then, such things are inevitable when best-laid plans, with all their monstrous costs, run smack-dab into fiscal reality.
Thousands of patients with terminal cancer were dealt a blow last night after a decision was made to deny them life prolonging drugs.
The Government's rationing body said two drugs for advanced breast cancer and a rare form of stomach cancer were too expensive for the NHS.
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence is expected to confirm guidance in the next few weeks that will effectively ban their use.
The move comes despite a pledge by Nice to be more flexible in giving life-extending drugs
to terminally-ill cancer patients after a public outcry last year over 'death sentence' decisions."
"Patients Forced To Wait Hours In Ambulances Parked Outside A&E Departments
"An investigation by The Sunday Telegraph has found that thousands of 999 patients are being left to wait in ambulances in car parks and holding bays, or in hospital corridors in some cases for more than five hours before they can even join the queue for urgent treatment.
Experts warn that hospitals are deliberately delaying when they accept patients or are diverting them to different sites
in order to meet Government targets to treat people within fours hours of admitting them."
"Cancer survivor confronts the health secretary on 62-day wait (UK Socialized Medicine)
WAITING times for cancer treatment need to be cut, the Scottish Government was told yesterday.
..Cancer experts later said that patients elsewhere in Europe would be "outraged" by having to wait two months to start treatment, with most being seen within two weeks.
The current target of 62 days from urgent referral by a doctor to starting treatment has still not been met in Scotland, despite that originally being the target figure for 2005."
"Hospital patient so shocked at dirty ward she climbed out of bed to clean it herself
After 12 years cleaning care homes and private houses, no one is better qualified than Tereza Tosbell to say whether a room is spotless.
So hospital bosses should take heed of her opinion after she spent four days on a 'filthy' ward.
The mother-of-one said during her stay there was a single, brief visit from a cleaner who left dusty curtains, dirty bedframes and a messy floor.
Disgusted at the conditions, she grabbed the antibacterial fluid dispenser at the end of her bed and some hand towels from the bathroom.
She then set about cleaning her four-bed ward, at one point dropping to her hands and knees to sanitise the floor as she dragged her drip trolley behind her.
'It was shameful to see how sloppy the cleaners were while I was there. I was not prepared to put up with such conditions,'
said Miss Tosbell, a 48-year-old divorcee who was admitted to Colchester General Hospital in Essex with an abscess in her neck.."
"Kidney cancer patients denied life-saving drugs by NHS rationing body NICE (UK Socialized Medicine)
Thousands of kidney cancer patients are likely to lose out on life-prolonging drugs.
The NHS rationing body, NICE, has confirmed a ban on three out of four new treatments.
.. 'Families will be denied time together and doctors will be unable to give patients the best treatment.'."
"Girl, 3, has heart operation cancelled three times because of bed shortage (UK Socialized Medicine)
A three-year-old girl awaiting heart surgery has had her operation cancelled three times this month because of a shortage of beds.
... A hospital spokesman said that procedures would be reviewed, but the case highlights a growing problem of cancelled operations in the NHS.
More than 57,000 surgeries were postponed for non-clinical reasons, including a lack of beds, last year 10 per cent more than the previous year."
Reminds me of this National Lampoon cover.
Hey Barry, no one wants to see Grandma die just because we didn't sign onto your legislation, to turn your own death panel phrase back upon itself.
It's incredibly interesting that the news this afternoon is that he doesn't have the votes. We need to INCREASE the pressure to make sure this isn't a trap to get us to let up. This guy can be trusted even less now than in the past. He's scared.
But people are living longer O’bozo, your plan will kill people.
Global Warming will continue, millions of species will be destroyed and there will be massive starvations unless we pass National Healthcare.
Any Questions? New York Times?
Yes, I do look good in this suit thank you....
Yep, obozo is in emotional meltdown mode. Nice to Sarah turning up the heat to speed the meltdown - loved her latest response to obozo...and the marxist media!
The anti american left have waited 200 years to destroy america. They have suffered through Teddy Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan, Newt Gingrich. They cant stand an optimistic can do attitude. They hate individualism. And, They have watched American values spread throughout the world.
This is their one chance to destroy America and they are going to try to grab the brass ring.
There was also the DNC ad where Bush sent the woman off the cliff in a wheelchair.

Hmmm!!! Amazing & they are all still dead! Seems they are not in charge of life & death. God is. For sure HE is not happy with Obama & the RATS trying to push the envelope to help folks hurry on their way.
We want them to do NOTHING!!! KILL THE BILL.
President holds Grandma hostage - Day One.
OH MY GOD - HEAD FOR THE EXITS!!!
Gawd Almighty, if the government takes over Healtcare, I think you mean healthcare, many people will die.
Obama and his minions seek to use healthcare to takeover every aspect of our lives. They will do it by denying treatment for all kinds of reasons, like maybe you didn’t vote for them.
People on both sides better worry. Would a bunch of lefties want whether they get treatment in the hands of conservatives?
Put me on the death panel, hey, they all gonna die.
And even more Americans will die if we do as healthcare research and advances grind to a halt. And shortages and rationing become the norm. You frickin’ moron.
Not you, Whitey.
Barack Obama is jive talkin’ again.
I think it was Thomas Sowell that asked the obvious question: Why are we rushing to pass this monumental reform package when none of it is set to be implemented until 2013??
wait - wait!!! I think he's telling us that if the bill is passed - NODBODY WILL DIE ANYMORE!!!
...When they go to their secret meetings, they all look confident. But, when they come out that door, they look scared! And they should be, because their political asses are about to be terminated. This administration and this Congress are dead in the water...
..The inside of the beltway has become a sphincher muscle, and it’s time to give the Potomac an enema and flush those turds into the Chesapeake Bay...
By making the start date after the next presidential election, I suppose he has a specific number of Americans he wants to kill off before providing relief.
Ok, then, we should close down all the abortion clinics because if we don’t.....MORE AMERICANS WILL DIE....
Obama has a mental disorder... In one article he tries to scare people saying if Healtcare not passed More Americans will die and then in the same breath he says.....
Drum Roll Please.... The Opposition is using scare tactics....
I like to tell liberals go ahead and get a Public Option and when we get a Republican President we will make sure that Pregnancy becomes a patient non-compliance with birth control issue and will not be authorized.
