There’s no chance that Barack Obama’s universal health care initiative will get the votes needed to pass any time soon. But in the event that the bill does (by some miracle) make it through Congress, here’s who ObamaCare will hurt the most:
Your elderly relatives:
Anyone over 65 in need of life-saving surgery will be offered the euthanasia option instead
The disabled and infirmed:
White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuele’s brother, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, is a “top health advisor” to Obama and holds two key positions within the Obama administration. Dr. Emanuel thinks doctors take the Hippocratic Oath too seriously in upholding their duty to care for the elderly and disabled with little regard to the cost. Dr. Emanuel believes that “communitarianism” should dictate who gets treatment as a means of cutting costs.
He believes medical care should be reserved for the non-disabled and those who have a better chance of recovering to become productive citizens. For instance, patients with dementia (people who the Obama administration refers to as “mentally retarded”) can not be expected to contribute to society, and therefore would not be approved for any costly surgery. Instead, the government would recommend euthanasia. Go here to read more.
