Senate May Take “Advanced Care Planning” Off the Table

Posted by courage On September - 26 - 2009

While this all sounds good and fine, as far as the Senate leaving the “Advanced Care Planning Consolations” aspect off of their bill; I remain concerned/skeptical should a House and Senate Health Care bill pass, that during the course of the “reconciliation process” the Advanced Care Planning will reappear.

For whatever reason, this administration has a vested interest in controlling the aging population.  Ezekiel Emanuel , the individual who has the President’s ear as Health Care policy adviser (Czar) and was appointed  to the Board of the Federal Coordinating Council on Comparative Effectiveness Research,  published in the British medical journal Lancet, January 2009 an article entitled,  “Principles for Allocation of Scarce Medical Interventions.”  In this article Emanuel sums up who is to be treated, and who is to die:

When implemented, the complete lives system produces a priority curve on which individuals aged between roughly 15 and 40 years get the most substantial chance, whereas the youngest and oldest people get chances that are attenuated.

Doesn’t this make you feel cozy?

Emanuel goes on to say this action may be justified by public opinion, since..

…broad consensus favors adolescents over very young infants and young adults over very elderly people.

This is the guy who will have great input as to which procedures the government sanctions and in decisions as to how much value you have in society.  It’s a whole cost-analysis determined by age and your future contributions to society.  For what I see.. those over 40, may experience some challenges.  (And I am tempted to do a whole Soylent Green analogy.. I’ll save that for another time.)

While Sarah Palin accurately though grimily, described these measures as “death squads,” the proof has come out that there are regulatory means which will be controlled by the Government to usher seniors and those with failing health toward end of life directives.

So yes President Obama, Joe Wilson was correct, as were the Patriots who marched in Washington on 912…

You LieAnd you continue to lie… Medicare Advantage will be affected, I may not be allowed to keep my present Health care policy and the list goes on… See Courage handout here.

I suggest you report yourself and your entire administration to the “fishy” email site…  fact and truth are  funny things, you can’t escape them.  Just so you understand where I am coming from, let me make this very clear…

You LieI for one, no longer trust our elected officials to abide by what their constituents request.  They are driven by forces (aka lobbyists, PAC funds etc.) which fund their audacity.  When you have an elected official such as Visclosky state, as he did, during the Chesterton town hall meeting that he will read the “pertinent” parts of the bill, they (elected officials) are telling us to our face.. they don’t care what impact the legislation they pass has on us, their constituents.

Need we know more?

Will you reach outside of your comfort zone and end your silence?

Do you have the courage to see?

Which pill, the the red or the blue?

The red pill allows you to learn the truth, ackowldge what is happening in the world around you or swallow take the blue pill and remain blind/uncaring of what is occurring.

Which is it?  The choice is yours……
