There will be a push to make my book , The BIG Black Lie, #1 on Amazon soon. I hope you will support me.
Obama made it very clear recently that the healthcare system he is proposing is for the healthy. That is the way, the only way he plans to control costs. If you are unhealthy, Obama may ask that you be "selfless," and not get on the system.
I watched as Obama backed himself into a corner of his own construction when discussing his own grandmother. He says on one hand that the government is not going to counsel old people to death or make them offers they can't refuse. He concedes however that the elderly and the terminally ill are responsible for a lot of the cost--cost is what he wants to control.
Using his grandmother Toots as an example, Obama squirmed while explaining that Toots likely should not have had her hip replaced, since she was dying of cancer and was 86 years old. Here was his comment:
“I don’t know how much that hip replacement cost,” Obama said in the interview. “I would have paid out of pocket for that hip replacement just because she’s my grandmother.”
“That’s where I think you just get into some very difficult moral issues,” he said in the April 14 interview. “The chronically ill and those toward the end of their lives are accounting for potentially 80 percent of the total healthcare bill out here.”
There is no hidden message here, as the message is crystal clear. Sometimes Obama is worse than Biden in revealing the truth, though he is sensitive to the idea not throwing Toots from the train. What he's not saying is he didn't want her on the train to begin with! Read more here...
