"ObamaCare" not so caring toward the elderly
Posted on Jun 25, 2009
Noted commentator Matthew Vadum, writing for The American Spectator, highlights what Obama's proposed government takeover of health care means for the elderly. You may click here to read it.
Here's a hint. If you're suffering from a painful fracture, Obama tells yesterday's town hall, "maybe you're better off not having the surgery, but taking the painkiller."
After all, the elderly will die soon anyway. Why spend government money treating their injuries, when government-run health care is based on the principle of rationing?
Vadum's conclusion is a libertarian one, "Medical decisions should be made by patients, their families, and their doctors, not by government bureaucrats, but that's ObamaCare for you."
