    Health Care - Insight from a Master Strategist

    As Obama fights the free fall of his approval numbers (faster than an Apollo spacecraft at re-entry), here are some original thoughts from the master strategist, Dick Morris:
    • "How can we cover 50 million more people without any new doctors or nurses? The answer is to ration health care, with the government deciding who'll get hip and knee replacements, heart-bypass surgery and other medical treatments. And what does rationing mean? It means that the elderly will be denied care that they can now get whenever they want."
    • "The Obama plan effectively repeals Medicare, putting a Federal Health Board between the elderly and their doctors. This board will instruct public and private insurance carriers on what procedures are to be approved, at what cost and for what patients."
    • "We'll have to revisit the idea that the elderly have, in the words of former Colorado Gov. Dick Lamm, 'a duty to die.'"
    • "The elderly constantly stay in touch with their doctors and medical providers. The curtailment of that access will become immediately apparent -- and in more than enough time for the 2010 elections."

    So, my parents will have to die so my kids can afford the taxes to keep the health care system going.  Good thing people about my age are drafting this thing, otherwise, I'd be hosed.


    Here's hoping it fails.
