Why Obamacare could result in the early deaths of millions
Imagine lying in some government-run hospital, hospice or
nursing home many years from now.
Imagine languishing unattended for days in soiled sheets,
suffering from hunger and thirst, covered with bed sores, your
flesh aboil with untreated infections.
Imagine living in fear of resentful, underpaid health aides who
take out their anger on you and abuse you.
And imagine spending your final moments on earth in the company
of a government health care worker with a syringe, who injects
you with a lethal cocktail.
Do you find this hard to imagine? You should. In any civilized
country, such things should not happen - ever. But President
Obama's health care proposals have the very real potential to
turn this nightmare into a reality for many Americans, according
to an in-depth investigation reported in the August edition of
Whistleblower magazine, titled "MEDICAL MURDER: Why Obamacare
could result in the early deaths of millions of baby boomers."

Especially vulnerable are the 80 million baby boomers born
between 1946 and 1964. "If you belong to that group, take note,"
says Richard Poe, author of the August cover story. "Your
generation has been targeted for a program of age-based medical
rationing such as our country has never before experienced."
Adds Whistleblower Editor David Kupelian, "If this dire
end-of-life scenario sounds too awful to be possible, that is
only because the reality of Obamacare has not been sufficiently
reported. For this is not a fantasy - it is what is already
occurring in other 'civilized' nations, including Canada and
Britain, that have adopted the same government-run system."
For instance, the cover story, "Medical Murder," documents how
British seniors, under a government-run system, "are routinely
denied treatment for cancer, heart disease and other deadly
illnesses," many dying "in filthy, overcrowded hospitals or
nursing homes, rife with pestilence, including the deadly,
antibiotic-resistant superbugs." Numerous horror stories of
needed medical care intentionally denied reveal the stark reality
of government-run health care worldwide.
To a small degree, Obamacare's ominous implications are starting
to leak out. Here's how columnist Charlotte Allen explained it
recently in the Los Angeles Times:
In looking for a way to fund healthcare, Obama has set his eye
on the oldest and sickest. You see, according to the Centers for
Medicare & Medicaid Services, about 30 percent of Medicare
spending - nearly $100 billion annually - goes to care for
patients during their last year of life. What if there were no
'last year of life,' the president seems to be asking. ... [W]hy
not save billions of dollars by killing off our own unproductive
oldsters and terminal patients, or - since we aren't likely to do
that outright in this, the 21st century - why not simply ensure
that they die faster by denying them costly medical care? The
savings could then subsidize care for the younger and healthier.
And for those who have been paying close attention, Obama
himself has ever-so-gently hinted at his true intentions. At a
town hall event in June televised by ABC News, Obama cited the
case of his grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, who died on the eve of
his election, suggesting one way to cut medical costs would be to
stop expensive procedures on people about to die.
Families, Obama said, need better information so they don't
approve "additional tests or additional drugs that the evidence
shows is not necessarily going to improve care."
"Maybe you're better off not having the surgery, but taking the
painkiller," the president offered.
Obama was slightly more explicit in a May 3 interview with the
New York Times, when he said there ought to be a national
"conversation" over whether "sort of in the aggregate, society
making those decisions to give my grandmother, or everybody
else's aging grandparents or parents, a hip replacement when
they're terminally ill is a sustainable model." Such decisions,
added Obama, shouldn't be left to patients or their relatives,
but to a "group" of "doctors, scientists, ethicists" who are not
part of "normal political channels."
One such elite medical decision-maker would be Obama's special
adviser for health policy, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, brother of Rahm
Emanuel. He's a longtime advocate of "age-weighted medical
rationing" - meaning, the older you are, the less care you get,
as in Britain. But what about the Hippocratic Oath, you might
ask, the sacred vow doctors have always taken to do all they can
to heal their patients? As Whistleblower documents, Emanuel
advises doctors to stop taking that oath so literally, and
instead to be "prudent" in assessing how much time, effort and
money each patient is worth, for the greater good of society.
Moreover, as "MEDICAL MURDER" reports, a bill being pushed hard
by Sen. Jay Rockefeller, chairman of the Senate Finance
Subcommittee on Health Care, will take from Congress all
authority over federal health spending and decree that such
decisions in the future would be made by a secretive committee of
"experts" modeled after - are you ready? - the Federal Reserve

"Obamacare is arguably the single most important issue of our
time," said Kupelian. "It's not about taxes, debt, wasteful
spending or burdensome regulations - it's about our very lives,
and the lives of our loved ones. Americans seriously need to wake
up and see the horror staring them in the face, and then they
need to let their elected representatives know, in no uncertain
terms, exactly what they think of Obamacare."
