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