Government-run health care just keeps getting better and better. "One troubling provision of the House bill compels seniors to submit to a <!--more-->counseling session every five years (and more often if they become sick or go into a nursing home) about alternatives for end-of-life care (House bill, p. 425-430)," writes Betsy McCaughey in the New York Post. The sessions cover highly sensitive matters such as whether to receive antibiotics and 'the use of artificially administered nutrition and hydration.'
"This mandate invites abuse, and seniors could easily be pushed to refuse care. Do we really want government involved in such deeply personal issues? "
So if you're elderly, you're contributing to the national debt and your exhaling of carbon dioxide is contributing to global warming. As ex-governor of Colorado Dick Lamm put it some years ago, you should just "get out of the way".
Lamm was a Democrat, of course, along with the ghouls who are putting together this bill. They call themselves the "Party of Compassion".
Dick Lamm is now 74 years old. If he's an honest man, he'll do his duty any day now.
