Experts argue caring for smokers, the obese may be too costly: “Why not just let these health sinners die?” You knew this was coming once the gubbermint started providing “free” healthcare. Let’s just cut to the bottom line: only skinny Democrats from reliable blue states will be treated.

OK. So what if the Diabetes and Obesity are caused by the crappy Factory food we eat, the corn and abx and hormones that are in EVERYTHING, the hypertension caused by the neverending stress of trying to stretch a dollar to pay bills, feed families, get to work and keep their jobs? Yeah, no one is looking at the obvious, just like its easier to ban guns than to step up and provide appropriate care (up to an including long term hospitalization where necessary) for the mentally ill.

Shouldn’t you be out spending your welfare money (MY TAX DOLLARS) on e-bay or something?

But providing that level of care is costly and might take away from the welfare state, which is the best way to buy votes and power!

How about prisoners and druggies?? I would prefer to still be allowed to pay for my own healthcare and retirement and have the government LEAVE ME ALONE!

From Darwinism comes the idea of the survival of the fittest. This leads to the idea of the heck with the unborn, the elderly, the handicapped, the sick, the weak. Hitler loved Darwin. He put it into effect when given the chance. If there is no God and there is no afterlife and we’re all just mistakes, the idea comes to eliminate baggage human beings and improve the lives of the strong on this earth. Lincoln said you can tell the goodness of a society by how they treat those at the beginning of life and those at the end. We fail miserably on both counts and it’s getting worse.

Then we will watch them scramble to try and make up the lost cigarette tax maoney. Kinda like Kali and their loss of tax revenue from diminishing gasoline sales.

Sounds as if those who wished to ride for free are having to give up yet another personal choice. Can anyone say death panels?

Sarah Palin was right and all of you leftist popped her comments and interpretation of what is in the barrycare.

Sounds like “Death Panels” to me. Remember when Sarah Palin was mocked and ridiculed for mentioning those words? Now, however, the “experts” are already drawing up trentative lists of people who should be denied medical care in the name of cost savings. Let’s see: fat people, smokers, drinkers, old people, the mentally ill, people with physical disabilities, the homeless, jcrowley, Republicans…the list keeps getting longer.

The motto is “Life unworthy of life”. Who said that? Some people back in the 30s, I think.

The more I read about this so called ACA, the more rights it tramples, and the more it sucks. How about we don’t cover liberal politicians, they are more likely to be shot, thus why they need armed guards.

How about AIDS patients? Hell, why not exclude ALL homosexuals, since they have such a high incidence of it to begin with?

But oh no, there’s NEVER gonna be anything like health-care rationing or death panels…

Wait until you can abort an unborn child when it can be determined that the baby is carrying the gay gene. Gays will be looking to close that loophole when that happens.

The insurance companies like to discriminate against motorcycle riders.

I hope I’m not giving the pols any ideas.

These “Experts” are the same fuckers who think there should be no drug testing for welfare recipients, and who believe they should be able to use their federal/state dole money for titties, OTB, Lottery, and booze.
The idiocy of the left, and their brazen hypocrisy is laughable. We need a civil war right about ………. NOW!

Death panels. People can lose weight and quit smoking and then lose out to the death panel when they reach 90 and need a new pacemaker. None of us are going to beat the government at their game.

BTW Kick, I just rented 2016, Obama’s America from Red Box last night.
I thought it was pretty good, but there were quite a few places in the movie where the background music was so loud that I couldn’t hear the dialogue.
Was it like that in the theatres too?

Well researched and presented. He managed to avoid the birther thing giving him more credibility to the mainstream.
Overall, I think it was a good movie.

Just got this in an email……..LOL

To help save the economy, the Government will announce next month that the Immigration Department will start deporting seniors (instead of illegal’s) in order to lower Social Security and Medicare costs. Older people are easier to catch and won’t remember how to get back home.

No, they will also treat fat Democrats, actually, any Democrat, it’s those damned gun hugging, right wingers that they want to die.

You mean like Ted Kennedy in his final 2 years of life? Sparing no expense to live another 2 months?

BTW, Mary Jo Kopechne could not be reached for comment.
