Aside from the obvious atrocity of socialized healthcare, - taxpayer-funded abortions - Obama had this to say in a townhall meeting on Wednesday night (part of the agenda he pushed, unopposed, on ABC that night):
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."
Could an admission that the government will be deciding who lives & dies and who gets treatment & who doesn't be any more transparent? This is scary stuff, folks. Do we really want Big Brother deciding our fates for us? Please speak up about this. Call your legislators and oppose government-run healthcare. Visit http://www.cprights.org/ for information.
