Is the cost of keeping you alive too high for obama's "death panels"?

Verne Strickland Blogmaster August 16, 2013

ObamaCare – When the cost of keeping your life is too high, the government will decide if it’s your turn to die.

America’s mature citizens are at high risk of falling prey to ObamaCare’s most extreme measures.

If you are 50 or older, you must take a stand NOW to protect your healthcare rights before it is too late.


Who would you choose to decide what medical care you will or will not receive? Most people defer their medical decisions to a licensed, experienced physician.

Under ObamaCare, that decision made by you may not be an option any longer.

Soon, a new system will ensure that government bureaucrats will be making those decisions for you AND your doctor – the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB).

The Independent Payment Advisory Board is a fifteen-member board, which has been placed in authority to make decisions over the care services made available to Medicare and Medicaid users.

The IPAB, referred to as the death panel, may be most accurately portrayed in President Obama’s attempted sugar coating of the harsh reality in his response to Jane Sturm after she questioned him regarding a pacemaker for her 100-year-old mother.

President Barack Obama said…

End-of-life care is one of the most difficult sets of decisions that WE’RE going to have to make... But understand that those decisions are already being made in one way or another. If they’re not being made under Medicare and Medicaid, they’re being made by private insurers... At least we can let doctors know – and your mom know – that you know what, maybe this isn’t going to help. Maybe you’re better off not having the surgery, but taking the painkiller. [emphasis added]

Now the feds are responsible for “End-of-life care.”  And government bureaucrats who have never received medical training are letting doctors know what procedures are or are not worth it.

These Death Panel appointees are then instead offering painkillers… to do what exactly? Ease your journey to a more rapid death.

You have this assurance with ObamaCare… you are no longer in control of making decisions determining your health and life, and neither are your doctors. The government will be handing out death sentences at the judgment of a few non-medically trained bureaucrats.

So… the value of your life has been reduced to the value of the almighty dollar.

Unbridled authority given to bureaucrats with no required medical training is an absolute immoral abuse of power allotted to a federal agency.

Because end-of-life care decisions hold the gravest implications of all medical decisions, America’s seniors are in the most immediate danger and stand to loose more than any other group at the hand of the IPAB.

If you are over 50, your must take a stand NOW to protect your healthcare rights before it is too late.

September 30th is the last date for Congress to decide whether or not they will fund ObamaCare for the October 1st beginning enrollment date. Your congressmen need to hear your voice while it still matters!
