The Death Panel Lie

President Obama promised "you’re not going to have anybody getting in between you and your doctor in your decision making.”  This, of course, is another blatant lie.  Under the "Affordable Care Act" (aka Obamacare), the Secretary of HHS has unlimited authority to dictate the types and amount of treatment all private physicians and hospitals may provide.  As Obamacare becomes more and more expensive to administer, mainly due to poor enrollment numbers and new armies of "navigators" and IRS agents to support, healthcare will need to be rationed.

  Dr. Donald Berwick, Obama's nominee to run CMS (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services), says that allocation of healthcare should be based on "important subgroups".  Who are these "important subgroups"?  The young? The strong? The genetically superior? Perhaps Democrat donors and voters are important subgroups.  I'm sure anyone in the Ruling Class is considered important to the Obama regime.

We do know that the administration considers anyone associated with the Tea Party to be a terrorist, and has tasked the IRS to target them with audits, intimidation, and "poor customer service".  Good luck getting proper treatment if you are old, sickly, or politically conservative.  Read the full article in the New York Post.
