Remember The Health Security Act (Hillary Care)

hillary bill obama cartoonNov. 12, 1993 as the Health Security Act (Hillary Care)was in its death throes, Bill Clinton was so concerned about AIDS that , he suggested that a provision be added to the bill mandating a one-time screening for AIDS be done on all US citizens.

Clinton also proposed having the CDC require every citizen with full-blown AIDS to be confined to AIDS sanatoriums until they were no longer contagious, or until they died.

The sanatoriums were to be situated in sparsely-populated areas of the country. Upon admission, patients would be required to sign living wills with euthanasia previsions that could be triggered by proxy when their healthcare providers deemed them to be “terminal.”

The AIDS provision Clinton wanted to add to Hillarycare does not appear to be in Obamacare. However, the same federal Health Board that will be charged with the responsibility of doing the cost analysis on the merits of keeping the elderly alive versus denying them lifesaving procedures will also be responsible for preparing a cost analysis on the value of keeping terminally-ill AIDS victims alive on the public dime.(Does that mean the Very Rich will be kept alive with their private funds but, we Medicare, Obamacare Folks will be Euthanized at some point.?

It’s interesting to note that the gay and lesbian population actively campaigned for Clinton  just as the elderly—the primary target of the Obamacare Health Board—actively campaigned, and voted, for Barack Obama in 2008.

Yet, try to convince the gay and lesbian community that, if Hillarycare hadn’t failed, most of them would be spending their final days in an isolated AIDS sanatorium somewhere in the Badlands.

large group we wont take it any moreAnd the blue-haired seniors in Florida and Arizona may find that their next flare-up of irritable bowel syndrome, or their next broken hip, might land them in a terminal care unit of their local hospital where those who linger while dying go to die, instead of sitting around bragging about their latest hospital adventure at the assisted living center.

This is the kind of health care that Barack Obama has worked to move heaven and earth to give America. One of the paragraphs states the professionals assume older patients are too old/frail for treatment, and as a result are discriminating against that particular age group. Discrimination has got nothing to do with it in my opinion. The reason they’re being denied treatment boils down to one thing – money.

Make no mistake about it. The Obama Health Board, or as it is legislatively known, the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Research, headed by death merchants the likes of Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, based on the vision of Dr. Robert Pearlman, the Chief of Ethics Evaluation for the Veteran’s Administration National Center for Ethics in Health Care, who was the visionary behind the notion that disabled veterans who do not want to be a burden to their families or to society, have the right to death with dignity through assisted suicide.

Pearlman authored his death protocol in 1997. For the remaining three years of the Clinton Administration, Pearlman‘s 52-page end-of-life planning document, “Your Life, Your Choices,” not only became the basis for the living wills used by disabled military people but, it also became the framework for the federal regulation that now requires hospitals and other medical care facilities to pressure patients—particularly elderly patients—to sign Living Wills (i.e., euthanasia provisions). Today, in violation of the Hippocratic Oath, doctors regularly euthanize patients deemed to be terminally-ill.

Among the list of terminal illnesses that can trigger the Living Will death-with-dignity provision is old-age.

If you’re old, sick or disabled — or have a friend or loved one who is — you should be very wary of Democratic healthcare plans. And, too, you should keep an eye on “the Orwellian thinking of the president. And health care advisor, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the brother of the former White House chief of staff.” This is, after all, one of the two advisors to President Obama dubbed deadly doctors” by the New York Post, a man also known as “Doctor Death,” who, as conservative blogger Gateway Pundit explained, “supports euthanasia … [and] believe[s] medical care should be reserved for non-disabled ‘participating’ members of society.”

It’s become a growing theme : ”Obamacare” will mean mandatory euthanasia for your grandmother in order to save money, and the person who created the ideological underpinnings for that policy is the brother of former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and Hillarycare.

Ezekiel Emanuel, who’s currently advising the administration on healthcare reform through a post at the White House Office of Management and Budget,

The elderly are being singled out for extermination because the Social Security system is bankrupt. While the bureaucrats blame the bankruptcy of Social Security on the fact that people now live too long,

the reality is that Social Security is bankrupt specifically because, for the last 77 years, elected politicians stole the Social Security Trust Fund (which was supposed to have been invested, by law, in high yield government bonds) and used your money to create the welfare society. That money is now long gone. In its place are IOUs the government cannot redeem. Today’s elderly are now expected to pay for that theft with their lives because there are too many people seeking repayment of the funds they deposited, in good faith

Among the list of terminal illnesses that Obamacare can trigger is the Living Will death-with-dignity provision is old-age.

obamacare now you know whats in it

Many Democrat’s Say Old People Are Such A Burden. Enter Ezekiel Emanuel.

large group we wont take it any moreWho Says Old people are such a burden.

 by:Robert Laurie  

Democrats seem to love death. Whether they’re yammering about abortion or “end of life” planning, they just can’t get enough of talking up the myriad ways people can exit life’s stage. They always claim this is simply a discussion about personal responsibility and individual choice but, since they despise those ideals in virtually every other matter, it’s a hard argument to buy.

Enter Ezekiel Emanuelshocked

Emanuel was one of the chief architects of ObamaCare and is, of course, the brother of Rahm. Over at The Atlantic, he’s penned an article about his own death and he’s made a shocking announcement about the perfect age at which he hopes to die. While he very specifically rules out euthanasia, (oh really?) Emanuel says he hopes his ticker shuts down at the not-particularly-old age of 75. (In the healthcare bill-no help for elderly cancer patients 75 and older)

The reason? 75 is, apparently, the perfect age for a human to buy the farm. According to Emanuel, people who live longer than that risk struggling through a less-than-perfect existence.

Doubtless, death is a loss. It deprives us of experiences and milestones, of time spent with our spouse and children. In short, it deprives us of all the things we value.

Emanuel rambles on in a painfully long-winded argument about how modern medicine is extending lives but, in his view, does so by keeping people in a sad, miserable, and often painful state. The elderly are not enjoying being alive and – according to Emanuel – become burdensome shadows of their former selves.

Emanuel says “living as long as possible has drawbacks we often won’t admit to ourselves. I will leave aside the very real and oppressive financial and caregiving burdens that many, if not most, adults in the so-called sandwich generation are now experiencing, caught between the care of children and parents. Our living too long places real emotional weights on our progeny”

So, for the sake of their overburdened families, they should probably just snuff it at 75 rather than drag it out for another 20 years. After all, they’re probably pretty unhappy being alive, and their continued existence places a ton of emotional stress on their progeny.

Sure, their children may love them – and they’ll miss them when they’re gone – but as long as mom and dad are alive they’re putting a lot of pressure on their offspring.

“But parents also cast a big shadow for most children. Whether estranged, disengaged, or deeply loving, they set expectations, render judgments, impose their opinions, interfere, and are generally a looming presence for even adult children. This can be wonderful. It can be annoying. It can be destructive. But it is inescapable as long as the parent is alive. Examples abound in life and literature: Lear, the quintessential Jewish mother, the Tiger Mom. And while children can never fully escape this weight even after a parent dies, there is much less pressure to conform to parental expectations and demands after they are gone.”

How incredibly, horrifically, selfish.  

Hillary more of the same

Emanuel argues that the price of adding more years to your life is decreased ability. In short, he argues that we’re not really adding “life” as much as we’re stretching out the process of death – and he wants no part of it.

The example he gives to showcase the horrors of old age is truly disturbing. Not because the life in question is so miserable, but because it actually sounds pretty great – and it belongs to his own father.

“My father illustrates the situation well. About a decade ago, just shy of his 77th birthday, he began having pain in his abdomen. Like every good doctor, he kept denying that it was anything important. But after three weeks with no improvement, he was persuaded to see his physician. He had in fact had a heart attack, which led to a cardiac catheterization and ultimately a bypass. Since then, he has not been the same. Once the prototype of a hyperactive Emanuel, suddenly his walking, his talking, his humor got slower. Today he can swim, read the newspaper, needle his kids on the phone, and still live with my mother in their own house. But everything seems sluggish. Although he didn’t die from the heart attack, no one would say he is living a vibrant life. When he discussed it with me, my father said, “I have slowed down tremendously. That is a fact. I no longer make rounds at the hospital or teach.” Despite this, he also said he was happy.”

My father was 86 he was bed ridden. He told me he was very happy. He said he reads, watches TV and has visitors. I agree he worked hard all his life like many other elderly. This is their time to live out the rest of their time as they see fit. Not as monster Progressive Democrat’s dictate.

My father was not given the choice he was Euthanized during a downturn by another family member and a MS. Doctor. His Bank Accounts were cleared out as well. This is what is in store for many elderly by greedy children and caregivers.

So, let’s get this straight, Ezekiel’s own father has a happy, relatively healthy life. He lives with a wife he loves, gets to interact with the children he loves, and can still swim and engage with the world. …But that’s not good enough. He’s “slowed down” so, in Emanuel’s warped mind, he’s a good example of how life after 75 isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

As he puts it: “the fact is that by 75, creativity, originality, and productivity are pretty much gone for the vast, vast majority of us.”

Emanuel says it’s “uniquely American” to assume that you’re going to have a happy, healthy life right up until the very end. He calls people who think they’re going to avoid the slow decent into death “American Immortals.” He claims these immortals believe they’re going to be perfectly healthy until they’re in their 90’s and then just keel over dead one day. (I have friends I play sports with that are in late 80’s and 2 are 90’s and we all enjoy our lives.. ) How dare Government can decide it can end us.jj)

I’ve never met anyone who thinks that. We all know that the end of our lives will, more likely than not, involve years of “slowing down” and some time in a hospital bed. Most of us have watched – or helped – someone they love go through the process.

That doesn’t mean we stop fighting for every. single. precious. second.

Most of us want to spend as long as possible with the people we love. Most of us want to see and do as much as we possibly can, for as long as we possibly can. Most of us are desirous of a medical system which is constantly struggling to give us as much life as science can provide.

Unfortunately, the man who was – in large part – responsible for Barack Obama’s unpopular, rightfully despised, “signature law” is not “most of us.”

Obama-  “I reject this aspiration. I think this manic desperation to endlessly extend life is misguided and potentially destructive”

In other words: “just take a pain pill.”
