Redistributing Health?
Investor's Business Daily ^ | May 14, 2010 | IBD Editorial

Posted on 05/14/2010 5:43:54 PM PDT by SmartInsight

Medicine: The administration's nominee to run Medicare and Medicaid is a fan of Britain's National Health Service and rationing services. He believes in less discretion for your doctor, more power for your government.

'The decision is not whether or not we will ration care — the decision is whether we will ration with our eyes open" is what Dr. Donald Berwick, President Obama's nominee to head the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services, said in an interview published in Biotechnology Healthcare in June 2009.

The question is whether the Senate will confirm Berwick with open eyes.

Berwick says: "NICE is an extremely effective and a conscientious, valuable and — importantly — knowledge-building system." That must explain why breast cancer in America has a 25% mortality rate and in Britain it's almost double at 46%. Prostate cancer is fatal to 19% of American men who get it; in Britain it kills 57% of those it strikes.

Let’s start with the understanding that Berwick is a “useless eater” himself, and should go first ~ ration his health care starting now!

It’s all about population control. Medicine, energy and soon to be food.

They still think the “Population Bomb” was totally correct.

The guy is a dyed in the wool commie. Mark Levin played a few clips of this boot licking marxist yesterday and there is no doubt.

Obama must be voted out in 2012 and his commie minions must go in 2010. There is really no alternative if our country is to survive as a free republic.

The plan never was to control costs, the plan was to take from the producers to buy votes from the ones wanting.

The question is whether the Obamites are going to get off their fat butts and fix the healthcare system, or simply divert all of the available healthcare to their constituents.

This is what happens when you vote Liberal Democrat.

And now the depressing part: last count I saw, 100 House seats are "in play". That's less than half of the guys who voted for Healthcare.

Why is Congress pushing this stuff? Because odds are very good that they will be re-elected.

So who are the stupid people now?

The DeathCare bill (courtesy of Obama, Pelosi, Reid, et al in this Congress) is a premeditated Holocaust II and genocide of the unborn and the elderly. Think not? Read your history books. Yes, that elderly person they intend to deny care to could be YOU.

I assert that those with the truly evil intent KNOW that there is no “danger” from overpopulation,

they just understand that they can’t CONTROL 300 million people, more than half of whom are armed.

The latter is the whole point.

With control of healthcare resources,
they can reward the loyal,
punish the disloyal,

and control everyone.

Join the Obamacare Class Action Lawsuit (deadline to join is May 31)

"The purpose of this lawsuit is to reverse Supreme Court precedent related to the Commerce clause and thereby overturn Obamacare. The Supreme Court has historically erred in its interpretation of the Constitutional role of the Federal Government. Recent Supreme Court rulings hint that they may be willing to take another look at Commerce clause precedent. Obamacare is so over reaching and so onerous, that it must either be repealed in Congress or struck down in the courts. We must fight this on both fronts. This is our historic opportunity to reverse America’s trend toward Socialism by overturning this unconstitutional precedent.

If you are a US citizen and agree with the goal of this lawsuit, please join us. If you have concerns about joining, please review the FAQs for more information. Every person we add strengthens the voice of "We the People".

Unfortunately the anti-illegals have legitimized the population control Malthusian argument and de-legitimized believing in the laws of economics such as supply and demand. Thus our side has handed the bullets to the other side that are now used against us.
