Senate candidate Maurice Ferré said it is wrong to spend thousands of dollars to prolong the lives of the dying for a short time. WEST PALM BEACH -- Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Maurice Ferré says the United States spends an ``absurd'' amount on end-of-life care and should gradually move to a universal health system in which the government controls costs by setting prices for medical procedures and capping expenditures based on age and medical condition

Here come the all powerful death panels. It must be a power trip or something for them... to decide who lives and who dies.
Again, let me second your sentiments ~ YOU FIRST MAURICE, YOU FIRST. Then, your family.
I do believe Maurice could win the Darwin award.
Nothing to see here, folks. There will be no death panels.
Oh, this will be well received in Florida.
Of course, it’ll be fine to steal from your pay over the course of your career to provide for care that’ll never be given.
“Don’t worry, be happy!”
unlike Obama, at least hs is willing to be honest about his support for death panels
But who makes the decision to stop medical treatment on what might be a futile fight, but also might be a temporary medical crisis which the patient might live for years if he survives the next week? And since the person is retired and not paying a lot of taxes, are they any bets that the definition of "dying" will quickly become pretty darn loose?
this puke would kill my wife. let him tell it to my face.
Nope. Reverse the order of applicability. First, apply it to those he loves......on the other hand, that could be a very small number of people.
Pitchforks and torches.
The Snow Birds are gonna flog him! LOL
U.S. Senators are indispensable, so they and their staffs and families are exempt and MUST be given treatment, no matter how hopeless. It’s only fair, y’know.
“Maurice A. Ferré (born June 23, 1935) is a former six-term Mayor of Miami. Ferré was the first United States mayor born in Puerto Rico and the first Hispanic Mayor of Miami. He is a candidate in the 2010 elections for the U.S. Senate seat for Florida vacated by Mel Martinez”
He’s already 74 years old. But being a career politician, I’m sure HIS health care will be extremely thorough. Unlike us, the peasants.
I O W Yooths in Asia!
His family fists?
Let he who is without typo cast the first stone.
I thought “The Barracuda” was crazy for discussing death panels.....
Hey libtards, this is simply the logical conclusion to your dream of universal health care. The best part is that you can make SS solvent again with these policies.
This is what we can expect as individual rights (American philosohpy) are replaced with Marxist collective rights. We no longer own our own health, productivity, etc. The “community” owns everything, which really means a few individuals in government own everything. Not much different that a monarchy really, if one thinks about it.
...he wants everyone else to feel his pain. His son, daughter in law and grandson die in a plane crash in the mid 90’s....he is an empty shell of a bitter man
Wow. That didn’t take long.
