Cancer Patient Chooses Death Over Obamacare (Obama voter can't afford it!)
Fox News, via Youtube ^ | November 8, 2013 | Fox News, via Youtube

Posted on 11/08/2013 8:59:28 AM PST by Timber Rattler

After Bill Elliott's $150/mo plan was canceled as a result of the ACA, he found himself unable to burden his family with his new $1500.00/mo premium costs. He is choosing to pay the fine and "let nature take it's course".

From the comments at the link:

"This guy voted for Obama because of the promise he could keep his plan. It's been cancelled. The new plan is so bad and expensive he is going to die rather than burden his family with the cost."

Wasn't that one of the anticipated outcomes of "free healthcare" ? The left wanted to not waste resources on the old/infirmed?

I wonder whether an enterprising lawyer couldn’t sue Obama directly for fraud. He certainly has a case. Just saying!

The best service he could do for his country is to make a commercial for Ted Cruz’s run for the Presidency in 2016. Play it over and over and over and over and over and over again until election day.

As a good liberal, I’m sure he feels good about his circumstances. It’s for the greater good and for his Master, Obama.

I saw this last night ..... gave me chills. The Obamacare domestic drone has been unleashed on Americans ..... I wonder if he’ll watch videos like this and enjoy them as much as he enjoys watching the drone “snuff” films of people (not all casualties are terrorists) being blown up in the ME. An ‘over-the-top’ comment? I think not .... Obamacare and the people behind it are E.V.I.L.

Hate to say it, but when I am canceled, and it's coming I'm sure... I will do the same. No coverage is better than giving my life to Obama. Maybe I need an attitude adjustment but for now, I will not go willingly and will die willingly if it comes to that.

I remember a speech Obama gave when he was campaigning -and I’ve looked long and hard for the video and can’t find it- where he specifically said ‘families were going to have to make difficult choices about grandma’s care......maybe instead of that surgery she should take a pill”. I froze when I heard him say that and it sent a chill up my spine because there was no mistaking what he was really saying.

Here’s the thing that infuriates me; My son is a T-1 diabetic. We’ve encouraged him to develop skills that he can use as his disease progresses so that he can keep working - even from a wheelchair.

With Obamacare, it’s better for him to let himself go, claim disability, and sit it out. To become another taker.

As this policy progresses, more and more people are going to quit. This punishes the people who actually fight to remain productive.

I think this is O'Dummy's objective, viz. to hastily shuffle people off into the next life.

This is what we pro-lifers have been saying re the murder of the unborn. It's a micro small step from killing a child to killing a adult. It's all a part of the same demonic plan.

To the guy in the article, you got what you voted for. It's just too bad that many decent conservatives will also suffer a similar fate.

It was when a Woman was asking Obama about her 90 something year old Mother who might need a Pacemaker. She was basically begging the King to spare her Mother’s life.

Obama blathered on about choices and suggested it might be better for some people to take a pill.

Rush talks about it all the time.

I feel sorry for the guy even though he fell for Obama’s lies. I’m glad he is speaking out, though the diehards will simply shrug their shoulders and say the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.

I take no joy in this.

I understand people should take responsibility for their decisions, but I place more of my disgust on the hard-core liberals (may they rot in Hell) for taking advantage of the stupidity, gullibility, and incuriousity of their constituency.

This just makes me angry.

I’m sure this missive is going to generate a lot of hate mail, but at my age I don’t really care.

As I watch more and more people who are experiencing a health care crisis in their lives and whose insurance, up to this point, was letting them combat their disease. They are finding it impossible to do so, such as the gentleman who’s the subject of this thread. He’s made the difficult decision not to pursue treatment of his condition and bankrupt his family.

I seem to recall that the Nazis in Germany in prior to the start of WWII and up to the very last of WWII, ridding themselves of those them deem inferior, or unworthy. Now if you look about you and see that the liberals/democrats are in love with abortion (hereinafter referred to as infanticide) and with the gutting of Medicare and denying required medical service to the elderly or chronically ill, to me the democrats are the party of death. Unless, you’re a convicted murdered, rapist, pedopile, etc.

Yep, and I would probably make the same decision if I were in his shoes.

With that said, he was a fool to believe Obama, but I imagine that he was feeling pretty desperate at the time.

Typical.

My advice, have him go find an Ice Flow and head out to Sea. It works for the Eskimos. He had better get to it before Global Warming kicks in.

Thank you....it wasn't the same venue I originally saw because he was standing, sleeves rolled up and used the word 'difficult' when talking about decisions and said 'pill' rather than painkiller. Plus, it was before he was elected. This link, while saying essentially the same thing, shows he actually 'cleaned it up' a bit to make it more palatable; especially when washed down with a tall glass of kool-aid.

And so it begins.

I am not sure how I would react given the same news, but I suspect that I might be paraphrasing James Cagney’s line as he addressed Humphrey Bogart in The Roaring Twenties, “You always said you were gonna take real good care of me, didn’t you, Barry. Here’s one rap you ain’t gonna beat!”

The most precious thing you have is your life and Obama is callously taking people’s ability to have/continue treatment that gives them life with his callous politics. The billion (to date) they’ve wasted on Obamacare ..... could have bought a lot of insurance for legitimate uninsured/underinsured who are in dire straits and need help. The millions/billions they waste on all sorts of government crap, fraud, waste, abuse .... they could again, use it to help folks with legitimate hardship.

People don’t have to die over this. There are options. Christian healthcare co-ops can handle some rather heavy medical expenses. There’s also crowd-funding. Creative alternatives exist. People need to get out of the box of insurance-think and get back to root causes. I don’t have the link handy, but the whole health insurance industry was started to stave off the early appeal of Marxism. The whole process needs to be reengineered in terms of the real objective, which is being free to pursue your own health, on your own terms, limited not by bureaucrats, but by reality as God has made it. This flailing about like we are victims of Obama and the left is repugnant to the spirit of liberty. Be free. Act free. Think free.

“where he specifically said ‘families were going to have to make difficult choices about grandma’s care......maybe instead of that surgery she should take a pill””

I heard him say that, too. He was talking about lowering the cost of healthcare, saying doctors sometimes give treatments that aren’t required and his panel of experts would decide which treatments are best and grandma might need a pill instead of surgery. That is the context I remember and I also remember thinking he is going to kill us older people.
