I don’t know how the Democrat National Committee thought using a lie about Medicare against a physician could possibly work. Neither can I believe that people who voted for Dr. Dan Benishek in 2010 would even consider not putting him back in office. He arrived in Washington to follow through on the promises he made to his constituents, but his work has been stonewalled in the Senate under Democrat Harry Reid. The Republicans have passed many a bill to save Medicare and to stop unelected boards from dictating to the citizens of Michigan-01 what medical services the people will or will not have. Dr. Benishek has been a strong supporter of all measures to save Medicare for our seniors. He is exactly the type of Congressman Americans across America want in Congress, someone who is a citizen legislator. He interrupted his medical practice in order to go to Washington and stop the Democrats from socializing the best healthcare system in the world. I do not believe for one minute that the citizens of MI-01 want what Europe has Their Death Panels Have Killed 130,000 Britons
NHS doctors are prematurely ending the lives of thousands of elderly hospital patients because they are difficult to manage or to free up beds, a senior consultant claimed yesterday.
Professor Patrick Pullicino said doctors had turned the use of a controversial ‘death pathway’ into the equivalent of euthanasia of the elderly.
He claimed there was often a lack of clear evidence for initiating the Liverpool Care Pathway, a method of looking after terminally ill patients that is used in hospitals across the country.
It is designed to come into force when doctors believe it is impossible for a patient to recover and death is imminent.
There are around 450,000 deaths in Britain each year of people who are in hospital or under NHS care. Around 29 per cent – 130,000 – are of patients who were on the LCP.
Professor Pullicino claimed that far too often elderly patients who could live longer are placed on the LCP and it had now become an ‘assisted death pathway rather than a care pathway’.
Notice how they use newspeak to create lovely sounding help for the elderly. Who would think something called a “care pathway” would indicate it is politicians/bureaucrats who are going to help you move quicker to the other side so that a bed can be freed up for someone younger? The facts are the facts, Democrats passed Obamacare. It provides for an unelected board of people who are not even required to be physicians, with no experience in medicine – all that’s required is the ability to decide what is “cost” effective. This is what the Democrats have done to our wonderful healthcare system. It ensures that the rich will still have the best care and the poor will not. Democrats lie about taking care of the poor, but Obamacare consigns them to limited healthcare options. There is not any fairness in Obamacare, only pain and suffering for families who cannot afford to pay to go elsewhere.
Congressman Benishek deserves to be re-elected. His vote will go to repeal the Patient Affordable Care Act. The vote of Gary McDowell will not. It’s also why lawyers have been so generous in donations to Gary McDowell in this campaign, they don’t want to see tort reform enacted, which is what Dr. Benishek believes is necessary to ease the cost of health care in this country.
We want to repeal this monstrous burden and replace it with targeted, and only if necessary, reforms. Healthcare needs reform in this country, but it should not be taken over by the federal government. If Obamacare is not repealed it means the end of physician directed healthcare for you as an individual. It will erode the relationship between the patient and his physician. This is a fact. Dr. Benishek is a physician who is well aware of this, and is trying to protect you, the people of Michigan’s 1st District, from the consequences of Obamacare. This is the right man at the right time to begin to free America from the tentacles of an intrusive and invasive federal government. Michiganders have always valued their freedom and independence, the path Gary McDowell presents to you is the complete opposite of our core values. Don’t be fooled by shady words, look at the past fours of life under President Obama and his policies; America is on a fiscal path of destruction. Gary McDowell has the same tax and spend and limit the peoples’ freedom as this Democrat administration. Dr. Benishek believes in turning this ship around from disaster.
