Barack Obamas appointment of Donald Berwick as the head of Medicare and Medicaid became so unpopular even among moderate Senate Democrats that Obama ended up making Berwick a recess appointment even before Berwick had submitted a full questionnaire to the Senate. That might happen once again with Obamas latest entitlement program appointment, Henry J. Aaron, picked to serve on the Social Security Advisory Board. The Brookings Institution economist shares a lot in common with Berwick, including a love of the British system of rationing health care, reports the Weekly Standard, which finds this from Aaron in the 1980s: If Americans are serious about curbing medical costs, theyll have to face up to a much tougher issue than merely cutting waste, says Brookings Institution economist Henry J. Aaron. Theyll have to do what the British have done: ration some types of costly medical care which means turning away patients from proven treatments. Cutting billions worth of pure waste in needless hospitalization, surplus beds, Cadillac-model machinery and superfluous tests would only temporarily slow the growth in health spending, which now tops 10 percent a year, Aaron told a symposium sponsored by the American Academy of Physician Assistants last week in Reston. Think that was long ago enough for Aaron to have changed his mind? Think again.

..and so it begins once again
Obama is a black racist. A far larger proportion of the older generation is non-minority than the younger generations and they contain a lot of conservatives. He wants to use medical care as a form of Ethnic Cleansing.
They are going to kill us, one way or another.
Holidays are coming..0bama acts alone...again. It’s coming.
I despise these people.
I have my own prescription for “political cleansing” (see tagline)
They are going to get it first.
Bingo! May not be his purpose, but certainly accomplish that in any case.
The election process is important in our country, but there are days when I can’t help but think that it would be very beneficial to all of us....... if we would simply hang the corrupt bastards that are killing our country. Hmmm, I seem to be daydreaming.
