. The first figure is the estimated total population of the United States, not including illegal aliens roughly estimated as 20,000,000 who are using many of our resources. The resources they use here are not reimbursed to the states and the dollar amount is not deducted from the money we send to their respective nations.
Please note that there is no category for Hispanic as you read on into the population information. Hispanics are actually counted in the "white" percentage and the so-called "white" group is not classified as non-Hispanic white. So the 79% of the population that you see as "white" includes the estimated 15% of those counted as Hispanic. Hispanics originated from Europeans who settled throughout South and Central America and therefore are as European in ancestry as the non-Hispanic white group.
I have not gone to the census to determine the ethnic breakdown of those over 65 in the population age group; nor have I researched the number of those over 55 in the 15 to 64 age group, many of whom are considered "seniors."
The issue is how many Americans stand to die when Obama reduces benefits to Seniors and denies them medical coverage that they have worked to earn. His planned reduction of Medicare benefits is a direct breaking of a government promise to the American people. About 38 million Americans will have their lives in Obama's hands if his "rationed non-health care" is passed. The number is probably higher to account for the disabled and for those in the 15 to 64 age group.
I wonder how many of those 38 million would have voted for Obama had they known what he has in mind for them.
Oregon, after treating her to one series of chemotherapy, suggested physician-assisted suicide when Oregon decided her life wasn't valuable enough to spend more money on for her health care. Treating Barbara was not considered "cost-effective." Read the story if you can. Here is a quotation:
Twice Barbara appealed the ruling. Twice Oregon denied her treatment.
Government compassion sounds so noble when first introduced. In fact, this well-intentioned motive fueled the creation of the State-sponsored health plan that now denied Barbara’s treatment. As "we the people" become more and more reliant on the government, inch by precious inch, liberty slips away. Citizens become powerless in dependency. Seduced by sweet words of compassion, the welfare of the State silently usurps the wellbeing of the individual citizen. Secure in the belief that government will care for them, many Americans slumber in complacency until one day, "we the people" awake to find liberty lost.
Is Barbara's story what we want for America? How do you Baby Boomers and folks in the Greatest Generation feel about Barbara's story? How about the folks who demonstrated against the state-ordered murder of Terri Schiavo
You realize, of course, that by supporting or voting for Obama's Denial of Medical Care, you are also voting for the extermination of your own children and grandchildren should they reach the time in life when the government does not consider their lives "cost-effective."
God help us! Where are our morals? Where is our sense of decency? While we slumber, liberty tiptoes away, as was said of the fog in San Francisco, on "tiny cat's paws."

note: a separate listing for Hispanic is not included because the US Census Bureau considers Hispanic to mean a person of Latin American descent (including persons of Cuban, Mexican, or Puerto Rican origin) living in the US who may be of any race or ethnic group (white, black, Asian, etc.); about 15.1% of the total US population is Hispanic
According to http://www.census.gov/compendia/statab/tables/09s0007.pdf, around 40,000,000 Americans are over 65. Reducing their numbers through the denial of medical care, to which they are chained and for which they have worked, would certainly cut costs. For those 55 and older, the number is around 70,000,000 including those over 65.
Mr. Obama could cut costs here; yes sir, he certainly could.
As it is your "duty to die," how many boomers and those over 65 are standing in line for their opportunity to do their "duty" on behalf of the children, those not aborted, saddled with the debt of Mr. Obama's first 6 months in office.
