Universal Health Trojan Horse in Pork Bill

Your records will all be digitalized into a national database, which will be reviewed by the federal government...this was part of Tom Daschle's plan, in which "doctors have to give up autonomy" and "learn to operate less like solo practitioners."

The government will be monitoring whether treatments are "cost effective," which will especially impact seniors. Take a gander at this, from Betsy McCaughey's analysis for Bloomberg:

"Seniors should be more accepting of the conditions that come with age instead of treating them. That means the elderly will bear the brunt.

"Medicare now pays for treatments deemed safe and effective. The stimulus bill would change that and apply a cost-effectiveness standard set by the Federal Council (464).

"The Federal Council is modeled after a U.K. board discussed in Daschle’s book. This board approves or rejects treatments using a formula that divides the cost of the treatment by the number of years the patient is likely to benefit. Treatments for younger patients are more often approved than treatments for diseases that affect the elderly, such as osteoporosis.

"In 2006, a U.K. health board decreed that elderly patients with macular degeneration had to wait until they went blind in one eye before they could get a costly new drug to save the other eye. It took almost three years of public protests before the board reversed its decision."

Another Trojan horse on the path to socialized medicine was signed into law last week.

Liberals seem to want to push us back in time in so many ways...including forcing us to make do with less energy (unless, of course, you're the President) and less healthcare.

And I haven't even touched the religious discrimination that's in the bill...

Scary times, indeed.

Update: Don't miss Peter Kirsanow's 10 Questions about the so-called "stimulus bill." If only the media would do its job and directly ask these questions and demand answers...
