Have a Disabled Child? Mom Getting Forgetful? Expect ObamaCare to Let Them DieLongtime conservative activist Foster Friess writes on his Campfire blog of Dr. Zeke Emanuel's plans to limit the health care expenses of "individuals who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens..."
In other words, if you are getting old, or not all there mentally, bye bye to you if you need health services that cost money.
Is Dr. Emanuel some powerless nut? If only!
No, he's President Obama's Special Advisor for Health Policy, his brother is the White House chief-of-staff Rahm Emanuel, and Dr. Emanuel laid out these views in the influential British medical journal The Lancet.
Have a severely disabled child? Mom getting forgetful? If this kind of thinking becomes policy (beware: it could), expect ObamaCare to let them die.
Addendum 7/22/09: Mark Tapscott and John Goodman see it the same way.
