The Ruling Class Will Decide Who Lives And Who Dies

If the liberals, who passed Obamacare, thought that death panels were not a reality, it would simply be the 10 millionth time they were wrong – and Americans will have paid the price. There is no way for the Federal Government, and the tax paying Americans who fund it, to keep your comatose grandmother or child alive for weeks, months, years to see if they will ever “wake up.” It comes down to dollars, and as much as Americans have screamed about their healthplans and what they felt they wouldn’t pay, they could always, through the force of media, get them to change their minds. This will not, and honestly cannot happen under a single payer government system. They will have a pot of money and that money will go where THEY decide it should go. They will choose the lifesaving drugs that get to market and then they will decide who gets those drugs. If you don’t think that the difference between rich and poor will be a deciding factor in who lives and dies, well you are just deluding yourself. The Ruling Class Will Decide Who Lives And Who Dies:

THE leader of Scotland’s doctors has questioned whether society can afford to pay thousands of pounds to keep terminally-ill people alive for weeks or months when health service budgets are under unprecedented strain.
Dr Brian Keighley, chairman of the British Medical Association Scotland, said in some cases tens of thousands of pounds were spent on drugs to extend cancer patients’ lives for relatively short periods.
Speaking ahead of his organization’s annual meeting, the GP said the country had to debate the merits of these kinds of aggressive treatments and the effects they had on the NHS budget. But he stressed any decision had to be made at a society level, rather than being left to doctors.

Patient groups are concerned that many cancer treatments are being rationed by the NHS because they are deemed too expensive.
While the NHS budget for Scotland rose slightly this year, the increasing cost of energy, food and drugs has meant health boards are having to make efficiency savings just to stand still. In many cases this has included recruitment freezes and a reduction in the NHS workforce of more than 3,000 in the past year.

Keighley said the Scottish Government was facing a “budgetary cliff edge” amid concerns about the negative effect of cuts. But he said there were areas where wider debate was needed to decide if Scotland could still afford to pay for services where good outcomes were limited.
This included life-extending treatments provided to people at the end of their lives with illnesses such as cancer.

Welcome to your nightmare, the government is here to save you….hahahahaha!

  1. They aren’t just wrong about the death panels, they are actively lying about them.

    They always knew that there were death panels in Obamacare. Oh they don’t CALL them death panels. They’re referred to as “expert commissions” but it all boils down to deciding who gets care and who doesn’t.

  2. Oh, but THEY will get to live. THEY have government health benefits… for LIFE!
    I have a beautiful granddaughter who has Down Syndrome. She will be 6 in October. Down Syndrome effects different children in different ways. It hit her physically. She is extremely smart, can add, read simple primers, carry on an age appropriate conversation etc. However she struggles to hold a writing implement. She was born with a two-chambered heart and in congestive heart failure. At 7 weeks old, an outstanding Pediatric cardio-vascular surgeon in DC built her two more chambers for her heart and a mitral valve. Thank the good Lord she had private insurance at the time as the cost was well over $350,000.00.
    She will need another operation when she is closer to full-grown to fix a small leak in her mitral valve. If o-care is still in place, she will not get that surgery and will be “allowed” to die. This will be because she has Down Syndrome and will not be “deemed” to be “valuable” enough to society to warrant the cost of her life. I am weeping as I write this.
    Because the good Lord in His infinite wisdom chose to send this treasured child to us, I have spent a lot of time reading up on both Donald Berwick and Ezekiel Emanuel. This exercise is, in fact, about as singularly depressing as anything could be. I told my daughter that ultimately the only way she will be able keep her daughter alive is to get elected to congress for at least one term, thus insuring that the government fringies will be in place for life.
    There is something seriously wrong with our society’s policy makers when you have to chose your career based on your best shot at enabling your child to live.

    • I am so sorry to hear that Suzanne and I suspect you are correct that they will “allow” her to die, they are fascists and their intent is a superior human race, just ask Justice Ginsberg who thought Roe v Wade would get “rid of those types”.

    • Suzanne thanks excellent illustration, this is where the rubber meets the road. About the first thing that came to my mind when dreaded OCare really passed Congress was, I thank the Lord my 80 year old dad got his triple bypass last year (he is doing great!) and I gave thanks my special needs daughter now 10 with schizencephaly a very rare condition, got her cranial shunt put in a few years ago (she is happy, healthy, sweet and wonderful). Come another year or two if we don’t repeal OCare, they would have flat denied my veteran father a bypass at his age and wait listed my daughter endlessly. You see, I actually lived in norther Europe a couple of years in a rationed system. These people aren’t fooling me, it truly does get down to rationing panels, always does.If you have a cold or a broken foot, socialized medicine can be efficient. If you have a pituitary adenoma or need a kidney transplant, eh….notso much. We just knew these procedures for our family would work. We had specialists willing to try. We had private insurance. All gone, soon. Except for the privileged who can afford to go to clinics in Switzerland.

  3. Jaded: tks for doing what you do. And Suzanne – understanding your despair sometimes coming to the surface, your story nevertheless should be an anchor for the Soccons, the Ficons, and whatever they call the other factions to realize that your granddaughter made it this far out of a combination of freedom, free market capitalism, American exceptionalism, faith, hope and charity. We know what the Left will do, our only recourse is to .refuse to continue to tolerate what the progressive Right is willing to sign on to.
