Stimulus bill: Democrats calling for elimination of senior citizens?
By Sher Zieve

Covertly slipped into GL Obama's faux "stimulus bill" last weekend by leftist Democrats was the Socialist Universal Healthcare program. Contained within the bill is the provision that doctors will now be forced to report any and all of their patient treatments to the federal government for approval to treat. Also contained within this portion of Obama's non-stimulus bill is the rationing of healthcare services to senior US citizens and the withholding of potentially life-saving measures. As Democrat Tom Daschle wrote in his book "Critical: What We Can Do About the Health-Care Crisis" senior citizens "should be more accepting of the conditions that come with age." Daschle does not appear to believe that senior citizens (apparently the government's definition of "senior citizen" is not defined) that seniors should accept their inevitable deaths without complaining. That is, senior citizens who are not members of the elite ruling class. Daschle's medical conditions, of course, would not be applicable to these provisions.

Note: Edward G. Robinson's death scene in the movie 'Soylent Green' comes immediately to mind.

Contained within this anything-but-job-stimulus-bill is I gather the ability of another of the Obama Administration's soon to be formed departments that will determine who can and cannot receive medical treatment. This is not only Socialized medicine but, provides the inherent ability for Obama and his minions, yet, another way to rid themselves of those deemed to be political enemies. For example, if someone who vocally opposes the Democrats' secular messiah has a medical condition that requires treatment, the now-in-charge-of-all-treatment-options-for-ALL-OF-the-American-people federal government can and will determine whether or not that individual can receive any treatment at all! It also has the added benefit as Daschle seems to be pushing in his book of eliminating those pesky seniors. And for decades seniors have voted en masse for Democrats over Republicans. This is another Democrat Party "thanks now go away and die." Is anyone out there getting scared yet?

Were those of you who voted for Obama expecting this? Do you agree that Obama should have the power to tell your doctor if he or she can treat you for illnesses? Are you in favor of this and the other non-economic stimulus portions of Obama's bill portions that run into the hundreds of millions of dollars that we and generations to come will all have to pay? Is this really what you had in mind when you voted this entity into office?

Did you who cast your ballots for Obama really vote for a dictator?'s what you and we who didn't vote for him now have. If you want to know your future, look to an even more tyrannical Venezuela than Hugo Chavez has created. And three Obama-adherent Senators voting for Obama's bill are named Specter, Collins and Snow. Sickening...
