New OBAMACARE SHOCKER: More Hospice and Less Senior Care

Here's another example of the lies the American People are being thrown about the Obamacare process, especially the part about receiving the same quality medical attention via Obamacare that one receives now.

Folks its no joke, I know no other way of putting it, the Democratic Party wants to kill your Grandparents. If you are a baby-boomer I would worry because you are a target also.

Its nothing personal, just business.  It makes economic sense, its expensive to keep old people alive. That's why the plan forces young people, who presently don't have heath care to purchase it.  Keeping them healthy is cheap, the Democrats need them in the plan to help pay for the seniors they are going to let die.

Not only does the Congressional plan include mandatory classes for Seniors on "dying with dignity"  but they have added funds for additional Hospice care. I just received this email news flash from RedState

BREAKING NEWS UPDATE: A RedState source sat behind a top aide to Rep. Paul Tonko (D-NY) and heard the aide admit that "the increase in Hospice care which will solve the prolonging of life issue." As you know, Democrats have been open about their desire to push seniors toward euthanasia as a cost savings option. In fact, the Democrats already have in the legislation a provision requiring senior citizens to receive instructions every five years on dying with dignity.

It's always great to hear liberals speak when they think no one is listening.

Rep. Paul Tonko is a freshman Democrat from Albany, NY. He's a typical non-descript eastern machine politician whose a robot for Obama and Pelosi and doesn't have too many original thoughts. Earlier this week one of his top aides was flying to Washington from the district. She was accompanied by what appeared to be a special interest Washington DC lobbyist, who probably came to Albany to attend some type of big money golf, gambling, and cigars fundraiser for Tonko.

Anyway, unbeknownst to them, a hero of the conservative movement sat quietly behind them. It was impossible to avoid listening to their boisterous conversation, and Tonko's aide didn't disappoint.

Naturally, most of the banter dealt with the health care bill, and here are a few of the gems:

The two were talking about whether Tonko would even be given time to read the bill. She told the lobbyist, "well he pays me to read it for him".

"[The] costliest part [of the Obama healthcare bill] will be the physician's rate cut," she said. Lots of political capital is going to be spent to get that through.

And, for the crowning glory, the aide feels that "probably the best part of the bill is the increase in Hospice care which will solve the prolonging of life issue."

This seems to prove the argument that the Obama bureaucrats will eventually decide who lives and who dies.
If you are wondering why Congress would pass a bill allowing Seniors to be refused care  so they will die when many of those in congress are getting on in years, there is an easy answer to that.  All federal Employees (Including Congress, and the Administration) are EXEMPT from Obamacare.

There is a group of Pro-Life congressmen who are threatening to withdraw support for the bill if there is not a provision specifically allowing institutions to forgo giving abortions.  I say to those congressmen, to fight just as hard for the life of Seniors.

Personally I have nothing against hospice care, and there are times when care is ended and a person is allowed to "die with dignity." Many of us have heath care proxies where we designate a family member, to make that decision for us if we are unable. That decision should be made by our family,along with our doctors and may even our religious leaders.  It should NOT be forced upon us by some bureaucrat in Washington DC.

Must be the means to the end of garnering that profit Piglosi was yapping about the other day? Kill off the old folks (and chronics like me, with no cure in sight for something that does NOT have to be terminal until they force it on us - such as multiple sclerosis) AND WHOO HOO - ROLLIN IN DOUGH!
