White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel's brother, a physician, appointed to Obama health care job admits killing old people is the only way to cut costs!
DEADLY DOCTORS O ADVISERS WANT TO RATION CARE By BETSY MCCAUGHEY New York Post July 24, 2009"Communitarianism?" Sounds like ?
Emanuel: Believes in withholding care from elderly for greater good. THE health bills coming out of Congress would put the decisions about your care in the hands of presidential appointees. They'd decide what plans cover, how much leeway your doctor will have and what seniors get under Medicare.
Yet at least two of President Obama's top health advisers should never be trusted with that power.
Start with Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the brother of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. He has already been appointed to two key positions: health-policy adviser at the Office of Management and Budget and a member of Federal Council on Comparative Effectiveness Research.
Emanuel bluntly admits that the cuts will not be pain-free. "Vague promises of savings from cutting waste, enhancing prevention and wellness, installing electronic medical records and improving quality are merely 'lipstick' cost control, more for show and public relations than for true change," he wrote last year (Health Affairs Feb. 27, 2008).
Savings, he writes, will require changing how doctors think about their patients: Doctors take the Hippocratic Oath too seriously, "as an imperative to do everything for the patient regardless of the cost or effects on others" (Journal of the American Medical Association, June 18, 2008). Yes, that's what patients want their doctors to do. But Emanuel wants doctors to look beyond the needs of their patients and consider social justice, such as whether the money could be better spent on somebody else.
Many doctors are horrified by this notion; they'll tell you that a doctor's job is to achieve social justice one patient at a time. Emanuel, however, believes that "communitarianism" should guide decisions on who gets care. He says medical care should be reserved for the non-disabled, not given to those "who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens . . . An obvious example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia" (Hastings Center Report, Nov.-Dec. '96). Translation: Don't give much care to a grandmother with Parkinson's or a child with cerebral palsy.
He explicitly defends discrimination against older patients: "Unlike allocation by sex or race, allocation by age is not invidious discrimination; every person lives through different life stages rather than being a single age. Even if 25-year-olds receive priority over 65-year-olds, everyone who is 65 years now was previously 25 years" (Lancet, Jan. 31).

Here is a link to the full House Democrat Health Care Plan in PDF. In Section 1233 E & F, pages 426-433, you find the part about mandatory end-of-life counseling for anyone over 65 years of age. A lot more provisions now being documented at that site.
Also, here's a large image of the Democratic (Obama) Health Plan chart-another Obama empty promise. This is the one the House democrats are censuring. Email these links or the image to everyone you know.
Obama and all those pushing his radical agenda are abject marxist ideologues. Their "fundamental; change" is nothing more than a destruction of the American free market and fundamental republican principle.
UNITED SOCIALIST STATES OF AMERICA - A SONG

...and on the lighter side, take your mind off the Obamanation for a few minutes and enjoy some beautiful Western US scenery slideshows.
The Soylent Green Solution. Obama Die Fast Health Plan.
The problem with this guy he thinks he is excluded.
Obama: “Yes, but we don’t need them.”
Zer0 and the ‘RAT Party = Throw Grandma under the bus.
I have to wonder what someone like a Stephen Hawking would say about this.
Never in my lifetime did I think advice and representation in DC would descend into the darkness of this evil.
Anyone who thinks the Terri case was not about this is deluded. She was the precedent.
Darwinists have the state religion of Gaia/GW. The Democrat worship the State. The pro-choice throw their babies into the fires of Molloch.
All that travertine. All that blood on their hands. How dare they. How dare they profane the foundations of these United States.
So. The FEMA coffins will be used after all. Now, what will be constructed on the camp sites? Crematoria for all the dead who die too soon and too many for cemetaries?
Note to self and others: funeral people is a growth industry.
“The horror. The horror.” (Brando, “Apocalypse Now”)
Hey “Dr” Zeke, it is my professional opinion that you should go f**k yourself.
“Throw Grandma under the bus.”
The elderly, the infirm, the seriously ill, the disabled. HIV/AIDS.
The Democrat are the Party of Death.
I watched Soylent Green on TCM tonight.I so much wanted to label that awful hospital “ObamaCare Clinic”.
“Late term abortions”
Health care will be limited the elderly and I guarantee you that eventually newborns who are born with health problems and older children and adults who eventually develop long lasting, serious health problems will eventually be denied health care as well.
Its not health care - its GENOCIDE!
The frog in the pot of water will yet again have the temperature turned up again and again!
FDR, Helen Keller, Lord Byron, Beethoven, John F Kennedy,
John Mellencamp, Hank Williams Sr, and Michael J Fox are or would have been on the short list.

Obama Says A Baby Is A Punishment
I wonder if Obama has a copy of Mein Kamph on his bedside end table—it appears that everything that he proposes is from that book. This guy is scary.
O thinks tonsilectomies are unnecessary
"...The poster argued in so many words that the care of each "undesirable" cost the "undue burden" of 60,000 marks of German taxpayer money over the patients lifetime, and that a publication called the New Folk contained a better - indeed, a "final" - solution to the difficulty."
