Robert Reich, Death Panel Aficionado

Published by at 7:48 am under All General Discussions

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?

    When the government has control of “health care”, they can direct the dollars to those who they deem most deserving. Just like the government decided who deserved loans to buy houses. The motivating factors of our capitalist system will be wiped out as the government will decide who will benefit and who will not. Hard work, education, innovation, self-reliance, freedom from government, will no-longer be relevant. This is a calamity of gigantic portions. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness will be in the hands of government, if you thought government sanctioning abortions was a problem, think of what this will mean.

    Robert Reich is a smart and important person. The things he is attempting to change are all for the good. What else would a smart and important person work toward?
