Skip to comments.Obamacare's Insults to the Intellectually Disabled and the Elderly
Posted on 07/26/2009 11:29:02 AM PDT by BigKahuna
We continue to pore through the 1,018 pages of the House health care reform bill (commonly known as Obamacare) in an effort to compare what it says to the public pronouncements of U.S. President Barack Obama, Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi and others in the Democratic leadership.
...Were referring to the bills provisions for caring for what it calls the mentally retarded. Found at the very end of Page 389 and the very beginning of Page 390 of this quite confusing piece of proposed legislation is the governments plan for taking care of the intellectually disabled or developmentally disabled, as those worthy and deserving citizens are actually called these days.
We also find on Page 424, Section 1233 under the title Advance Care Planning Consultation a mandate that all persons considered elderly (we think they mean those 65 years of age and older) under the definitions contained within the bill must meet with a care provider (called a practitioner) every 5 years to discuss end of life issues such as the need to ponder upon when would be the right time, in essence, to discontinue life-prolonging medical care and receipt of services.
Somehow, we cant escape the memory of Soylent Green, the 1973 movie starring Charleton Heston and Edward G. Robinson which portrayed a dystopian future where the old or those who could not feed or otherwise take care of themselves were encouraged to end their lives (with government assistance, of course) so that they wouldnt take up vital resources. Well leave it to the imagination to come up with what their bodies were turned into (all for the greater good) of course.

“Retards,” massive expansion in abortion, “Kill Grandma” bureaucratic hurdles to care, and mandatory euthanasia lectures every 5 years for Useless Elderly.
The Republicans would be well advised to stay miles away from any “bipartisan” attempts by these democrat party monsters to diffuse the blame.
There will be lots more real estate available in Florida!
I agree. Let them own this monster.
Whatever the reason, it must be mere coincidence that this group is significantly the most Republican of all voters. (Chart from 2008 presidential election).
With Deathcare some old lady will be holed up in an attic writing a diary.
Oooh. I like it! Mind if I borrow it and spread it around? ;-)
What if someone younger and healthier wants to prematurely end their life? Can the government help you commmit suicide as a young adult and if so would it be covered under insurance?
One of my all time favorite thefts!
Yeah, this is the "Kill Florida Bill."
If you take a hard look at mugabe and his party, they are targeting all sectors that likely vote republican. In years past, the pols attacked each other. Now the dimrats are attacking small business, manufacturing, the religious, the elderly, military vets and their families, pro lifers, pro America types and on and on.
Truth be told.
The liberal left of America wants and plans with the help of the UN and communists of the world to murder some half of the world, literally 3 1/2 billion people, in the same kind of death camps used by communists worldwide for 100 plus years now.
Abortion of babies, then murder of old people in hostels, then the helpless who can not defend themselves, and the children who are left orphans, these and more will be murdered by the evil left neo Nazi's when the democrat health care plan passes. The devil man Obama and all his demon democrats henchmen are pawns of Satan and will burn in the lake of fire with him after the 1000 year rule of Jesus Christ on the earth.
They already do in the sophisticated society of European nations where teens and young people are helped to commit suicide in their despicable government health care plans.
It's a fact, Jack. Check it out for yourself and catch up to the neo nazi leftist hostile misery of the new world order the politicians are leading the blind into.
The Dems know that the only way to save Social Security is to get rid of the 65’s and older. The Baby Boomer bubble that is coming in another 6 years will bankrupt SS and Medicare by 2013.
These 2 programs are unfunded by over $56 Trillion.
But won’t if also affect the Dems if everyone 65 and older has to go?
Dems are body worshipers who profess to be wise but are fools and murderers indeed.
The members of both houses better think long and hard about how they vote on Obamacare. It will be permanently recorded. When the system decides that a wife or mother or father is too old or sick to treat because of the cost or other reasons her husband of 58 yrs or son may take offense to this. They may decide that the people who cast this atrocity on the country are not worth keeping around or that maybe they don’t need a wife. You may spend the rest of your life looking over your shoulder.
Actually, I am reminded more of ‘Logan’s Run’ than ‘Soylent Green’.
No. If the DemoNazis want to pass this evil, they do it alone.
So there is no confusing who is responsible for it..The DemoNazis and the usual slit nosed,sleep with the enemy whore like Collins, Snowe, Spector...
“Actually, I am reminded more of Logans Run than Soylent Green.’”
Maybe...but you gotta admit the symbology (killing off the old and then eating them) has a bit more impact than just killing people when they hit 30 ;-)
Excellent graphic.....as we have said many times here but now is clearer than ever in this DEATHCARE bill -
DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS THE PARTY OF DEATH
It is just a matter of time before they come knocking at my door for my son. They will regret it.
My dad is 79, a veteran of 27 years military service, and a smart guy, but his wife started serving him left-wing Kool-Aid about 30 years ago, and he’s never recovered.
He voted for Obama, and continues to support his socialist agenda. I won’t even think of trying to inform him about the “Kill Grandma” part of the Health Care bill.

That’s funny. I did 22 years (enlisted and officer) before I punched out a few years ago. Is he on Tricare for Life? All of that’s going away under this so-called “reform” bill.
What's wrong with that?
What weve noticed lately is that they certainly seem to be in a rush to enact what we feel would be the greatest theft of individual wealth and liberties in the history of the nation. Our guess is that they need to do so before many more average Americans read for themselves certain of the provisions contained within this bill.
And that, dear readers, is the crux of the 0bama position.
Anybody remember the last major world power whose leader advocated euthanasia of the elderly and mentally challenged?
Funny... I thought of “Soylent Green” yeterday when I was in a small town. I saw a sign pointing toward “Recycling Center” and “Cemetery”.
Actually, I don't know what sort of health care plan he's on, government, or otherwise. We've had a long-distance relationship for a real long time now, so I'm not privy to much of his personal business.
I only can hope that he's digging into the proposed legislation, and is finding out all of the ugly details on his own. If not, he'll find out the hard way, and will have to admit to himself that I warned him.
Sadly, my dad hast drunken of the Kool-Aid, and is lost unto Men. He won't listen to anything by any conservative or Republican. Eyes firmly glued shut, I'm afraid.
Thanks, though. I'll bet it's a great interview.
I wish I could make that a part of my signature. Very nice.
>The Republicans would be well advised to stay miles away from any bipartisan attempts by these democrat party monsters to diffuse the blame.<
I’ve got news for the Republicans. They need to quit saying they want to “cut health care costs” and they need to get out in front of this story and demand that the elderly and chronically ill be protected.
Without a doubt, the best comment of the day.
I thought death rode a pale horse, not a stupid ass.
