In England, terminally ill patients are made to die prematurely. Kate Devlin has a good article published in the Daily Telegraph of London: Sentenced to death on the NHS
is their national health program or overseeing board. But that is not all:
Under NHS guidelines introduced across England to help doctors and medical staff in dealing with dying patients, they can then have fluid and drugs withdrawn and many are put on continuous sedation until they pass away.
This is what is planned for us in America. Regardless of Terri Schiavo's
mental condition, I have always believed that as a nation we will pay the the government of Florida under COURT orders denied her even the luxury of ice chips. She was murdered by the state and she didn't get the benefit of a lethal injection. No, she was starved to death and all fluids were withdrawn. It took Terri what 12 to 13 days to die under heinous cruelty with no appeals and having committed no crime. Shame on us!
As we move on in this battle over the government's takeover of 20% of our private sector from aspirins to bedpans, we have to understand and know several facts:
There are only two ways to reduce medicare medical costs:
1) reduce the care
2) reduce the population receiving the care
On the last item, anyone who goes to any emergency room will be treated insurance or not, illegal or native-born unless you are a "non-white Hispanic" then you are on your own. My experience.
Mr. Obama is coming after baby-boomers and older folks along with people with disabilities - regardless of age. The health care plan is designed to kill us, of not directly, no that would be too obvious. The Administration is going to let the hospitals and doctors do that as the Administration cuts back on the level of reimbursement they will give to doctors and hospitals for treatments, testing, and surgeries.
The hospitals and doctors will be forced to reduce our care.
When the hospital admittance folks start writing down your ethnicity, for goodness sake, say Aleutian Native. Whatever you do, do not identify yourself as "non-Hispanic white."
I don't mean that Mr. Obama is going to march all us into special "death camps" but the reduction of treatment will have the same effect. Just read the article by Kate Devlin.
Or have we become so numb that we are automatons just rushing from one place to another blindly doing what the 'telemessiah' directs us to do. Here's just one of my tiny problems with all the speed at which Obama is trying to destroy our nation - I don't trust him at all.
He is the chief executive of the Illinois thugocracy and nothing will change that except us going out to vote at the polls in November to take away some of his power base in the Senate and the House. We won't change the executive branch but we may be able to slow them down.
On a lighter note - I hope the tea parties go well and are great in DC on Saturday...
