It will be a softer, gentler genocideSubmitted by Win2008 on Thu, 08/20/2009 - 20:35
Obamacare supporters can deny it all they want, but it is coming. As the population grows older, this country faces a major crisis – the cost of keep them alive. The idea that the elderly will not be coerced into signing away the balance of their lives is unlikely. These End of Life counseling sessions will be a sales pitch to the After Life (if you believe in that sort of thing). It will be a softer, gentler genocide. Many will go freely, but others will be pushed, along with their families.
Frontline – Living Old (Parts 5 & 6 get to the point)
Life and death decisions are already being made by others.
It doesn’t matter if it is the government or private companies, the problem will only get worse. The government can not afford the “Public Option” and the insurance companies want to make a profit. Medical professionals should be paid well, but human life and death should not be decided by bureaucrats or tied to stockholder dividends.
It all goes without saying, but I thought I would.
