Skip to comments.Obama's death panels return: Rationing is at heart of President's health plan

The fate of the elderly, the sick and the disabled depends on the findings of President Obama's proposed panel that will recommend savings for financially doomed Medicare.
There is a dirty secret about health care that President Obama hopes will escape the headlines. In his newly released plan to "reform" Medicare as part of overall deficit reduction, Obama has punted actual cost-cutting and instead proposed a panel - the Independent Payment Advisory Board - to recommend savings for the financially doomed program. Translation: Welcome to the world of rationing.
The board, which was an original part of Obamacare (remember the death panel debate?), consists of 15 unelected bureaucrats who will have unchecked, binding power in the interest of supposedly greater efficiency and lower costs. That means that instead of you or your doctor making decisions about your care, a group of Washington micromanagers will do it for you.

I’ve written it before, and I’ll write it again. These leftists can’t create anything. All they can do is destroy. Think free, quality health care is possible. It’s a lie, a blatant, bald-faced lie. Free care is ALWAYS rationed care. People better make up their minds. Do they really want the post office (or a similar bureaucracy) telling them what kind of health care they can get?
I fear for my parents when I see this. I can say more but I got to go to work, millions of looters depend on me.
This may be true but when the time comes, I don't care how much money one has or how good their healthcare, they will still drool, have their diapers changed, urinate on themselves, and have to be hand fed. They can wipe their ugly old @sses with $1,000 bills and it won't make them any more comfortable. The circle of life is what it is. So, if I cash out early so be it - I'm going to a better place but, their butts will still be lying in a gold plated bed hooked up to life support. Oh, well.
You have got that right.
The ONLY relative I have in Canada who got quick care had been a city councilman of a capital of a province, and they flew out a doctor from New York for him within a week of his heart attack.
HE is the ONLY one who got that kind of response.
I’m so glad we have a home elsewhere, a country where every minute of life is valued. FUBO! I’ve already beat him at his own game. FOBO.
