HEALTH CARE DEATH PANELS

health-care-death-panel

Republicans continue their criticism of Health Care reform.  Birthers claim they have proof of Democrat Death Panels.
Last week Sarah Palin decried the Obama Health Care plan for having “Death Panels” which she said would euthanize those deemed “unproductive to society” like her child with down syndrome.  Actual proof of such policies has yet to be provided but that has not stopped right wing support of Mrs. Palin’s claims.
Newt Gingrich came forward this weekend to express support of Palin’s criticisms of a “government run health system that pays for itself by killing off the sick and the elderly.”  When asked where in the health plan it says that people would be killed he replied “Um, can I get back to you on that?”
According to Palin those deemed “unproductive” by democrats would be encouraged by government agents to consent to being euthanized “for the good of the State.”  Those who decline would be taken forcibly and “made an example of.”  While Democrats in Washington condemn these notions as preposterous Orly Taites says she has proof!
Orly Taites, mother of the Birther movement, claims to have proof of Democrat Death Panels.  Taits claims to have photographic proof of the elderly being rounded up from nursing homes by government officials.  Critics say that these are simply stock photos from advertisements of nursing homes, to which Taites says she is being unfairly ridiculed and surpressed.
Hundreds of conservatives, including the Birthers, have joined their voices in condemning Health Care reform.  Already in town halls across the midwest angry citizens are throwing their elderly at local representatives in protest.
One Iowa woman began screaming at a town hall meeting “This is not the America that I love!  This health care plan is not what my father served in Korea to protect!”  She then began beating a State Assemblyman with her geriatric father.
Washington Democrats have yet to effectively prove that they are not holding secret Death Panels.  Until the government has adequately proven that they are not planning to systematically kill the sick and the elderly the protests are expected to continue; with elderly people being thrown in protest in small towns across America.

  1. This looks to be one horse that will be beat to death until its either passed or voted down in the Senate. As for this Birther garbage I would say that nObama was arduously vetted when he ran for his Senate seat and again before the DNC through their support toward his presidential bid. I don't like the man's ideals or any of his passed/future policies but those that are gathering at these town hall meetings need to keep pressing. When asked about the Death Panel, Gingrich didn't know where in this massive bill it states that but it also begs to question…
    Do any of these Senators that are to vote on one of THE most prominent issues in their history, in fact, know the entirety of the bill? If any singular one of them can't cite back portions of this bill on demand, then they must pass a "Nay".

  2. "Young" emergency room doctors in early 2001-2001 time frame asked family if we wanted 90+ grandmothers (two different people–two separate occasions) treated because, after all, they were so old! We adamantly said of course they should be treated. One lived to be 100 and the other had several good years of life after that as well! This was a Republican (Bush) era mindset along with his removal of most regulation from nursing homes. The nursing home corporations continue to abuse and neglect (even rape) patients (no, they are not "residents"–they are in the facility for skilled nursing care!). The Bush years are when the elderly found themselves being treated this way; we need to be aware that someone needs to "clean up that mess" too! Christian conservative is such an interesting term. Christian–NO! Conservative–with all their millions (if having those multi-million dollar mansions is considered conservative)? Just preventing abortions doesn't prove taking care of one's life. Caring for homeless, starving "born" children and adults is as important–until natural death. Think about these real life situations, please.
