Here It Is

Sorry to re-post this clip of the Obama health care infomercial, but one of the brilliant Dems missed it the last time.

It's not his fault, we all know that not much light gets gets in the back of the chosen ones pants.

I posted this clip because it has Obama telling us that the government thinks that a pill would be better than other, more expensive alternatives in some cases. It means they will decide who gets what treatment

I can only think that he did find it, and ignored what was said, and replaced the words with some happy talk

Health care is just one of the power grabs that the government is up to, and I cant think of any good reason why the Obama supporters are standing behind any of this

Why did Obama not want people like these to ask questions about his health care plan ?

Maybe that's why.

I have an uncle. He is the closest person to being my dad that I will ever have. He is coming up on the big 70 and I would do anything to keep him around.

He is retired from the government, and is back working for a contractor doing what he was doing before. Still cuts his grass, still chases the women around, and walks around in pain every minute of the day because of his bad knees

I will be taking him to the hospital in August to have them replaced, because regardless of his age, and some other age related health problems, he wants to continue to live his life, for as long as he has it.

I agree, and think that even though those replacements may get 4 or 5 or hopefully 50 years of service, he deserves the chance

Would the government agree, or hand him some pain pills ?

That video clip of Obama was taken out of context, they never showed the complete video of what Obama said, so I will show it to you in text just like I did in my reply to your comment

President Obama suggested at a town hall event Wednesday night that one way to shave medical costs is to stop expensive and ultimately futile procedures performed on people who are about to die and don't stand to gain from the extra care.

In a nationally televised event at the White House, Obama said families need better information so they don't unthinkingly approve "additional tests or additional drugs that the evidence shows is not necessarily going to improve care."

He added: "Maybe you're better off not having the surgery, but taking the painkiller."

Obama said he has personal familiarity with such a dilemma. His grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, was diagnosed with terminal cancer and given less than nine months to live, he said.

She fell and broke her hip, "and the question was, does she get hip replacement surgery, even though she was fragile enough they were not sure how long she would last?" [...

Who said Obama was going to make that decision?
I agree with Obama, Why go through painful hip surgery if your going to die in less than a year anyway?, your better off taking some pain pills. Obama is merely suggesting ways we can make health care cheaper. Where is the life and death decision? I think the cancer in his grandmother made that decision. If you're going to criticize Obama on what he says, don't take it out of context. That's the same as lieing. From a brilliant Dem.

@ FishHawk Thanks for the help

@ Bob That is where it starts my friend. The government would ease us into the idea that someone does not have that long to live, so lets just dope them up and wait till they die.
I call bullshit on the idea that the government would have any say in what happens to my family or myself.

Bob said...

Lot2Learn, Bullshit. The government isn't making that call, the doctors are.

@ Bob
I pray that if the Obama system becomes a reality, you and your family will stay healthy so that you will not be faced with a government official telling you that you are too far gone, and take these pills
