It sounds so nice and tidy, doesn’t it?

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

The lat­est cri­sis on Pres­i­dent Obama’s teleprompter is health care cost. And the so­lu­tion of course is to let the gov­ern­ment run it.

Then, he could, through bu­reau­crats, tell your doc­tor — con­trolled by the Doc­tor Czar — what he/she could or could not pre­scribe, to whom, and when. That would as­sure most endof-life ex­pense would be elim­i­nated. We’re told 85 per­cent of most peo­ples’ life­time med­i­cal ex­pense oc­curs af­ter they re­tire. To re­duce costs, most long-term ill­ness would be un­der-treated. Dis­abled would find ap­pli­ances and medicine hard to come by. Most high­cost pa­tients would die.

Prob­lem solved! With a hefty chunk of of the cur­rent fed­eral budge now un­der his thumb, the promised health care cost re­duc­tions would oc­cur without hav­ing to look into all the ram­pant, un­con­trolled fraud and abuse of the cur­rent sys­tem.

The Ponzi scheme, So­cial Se­cu­rity, would be closer to bal­ance as se­niors quickly suc­cumbed to age-re­lated ill­ness. Af­ter all, So­cial Se­cu­rity re­tire­ment age was sup­posed to be higher than the av­er­age life span any­way. Low­er­ing the age at death through med­i­cal man­age­ment, thus cut­ting off all those monthly So­cial Se­cu­rity checks, would be a great help to achiev­ing this goal.

Mr. Obama’s Uni­ver­sal Health Care pro­posal would solve the health care cri­sis, Medi­care/Med­i­caid sol­vency, and an un­der­funded So­cial Se­cu­rity sys­tem in one Great Leap For­ward.

Don’t think he’d be this cold? This is the same guy who voted to al­low born alive ba­bies of botched abor­tions to die. If he’s will­ing to dis­card a young life, what makes you think he would pro­tect an old one? Joe White Deni­son, Kansas
