Finally, someone on the left was honest enough to tell the truth about government rationed health care. The truth that, in order to cut costs and provide better care for many, others will have to go without. Robert Reich, formerly of the Clinton administration, was quite blunt in 2007 when he spoke on the subject of health care reform:
“We’re going to have to, if you’re very old, we’re not going to give you all that technology and all those drugs for the last couple of years of your life to keep you maybe going for another couple of months. It’s too expensive…so we’re going to let you die.”
Reich was talking about being honest with America when it comes to policy decisions. It is ironic that his talk straight talk included a bit on rationing health care. Even now Reich is out misleading the nation on this very topic, not honoring or respecting the people.
What was truly sick about this whole thing was how the young people cheered the news that the older generation would be cut off from health care treatments (for them and others to reap the rewards).
One has to wonder, if government controlled health care was so bad only 2 years ago, why is it all of a sudden a good thing now? To what lengths will these people go to hide the truth today regarding something they rightfully shunned not long ago? How far will these cretins in the Political Industrial Complex go in saying whatever it takes to gain power? When will they be honest to the American people, as Reich claims he was being in 2007?
