Of course it would deny them. Services to the elderly in order to keep them alive is what costs so much. That is what they need to do in order to save money. If every old person would die six months earlier, healthcare wouldn't be in such dissaray. :)sphss

Please take this as a joke. It's fact, but still a joke.

Sincerely,

Bobby,

I'm unable to open the link but I seriously doubt the President's plan will deny health care for the elderly.

It won't deny, but it will limit. Health care costs have skyrocketed over the past years. Everybody wants the latest and greatest technology. No longer do people want X-Rays....they want MRIs. This bill will reform the way you get health care by asking the question "is it cost effective to run another test". It will absolutely deny the best tests and the best care in order to control costs.

Here's a thought

Most who oppose the so called Govt Health Care system state that the Govt can't do anything right including manage health care. If this is the case, then wouldn't it be a good thing for the Military to obtain private health care rather than rely on that terrible Govt run system that they have now.

:)Unsure (I'm not serious BTW)

Please post up the text from the President's Health care bill that states anything similar to your comment.

Thanks

Obama is correct to fire a shot across the bow of the seniors. Obama deserves bipartisan support in cutting the wasteful spending on old people. Interestingly, the AARP has not come out publicly against this, but you can be sure they working behind the scenes.

It's under "best practices" and cost control. It means limiting expensive procedures and tests on old people.
There is also death "planning" that explains this to old people and their families ahead of time.
Ultra, you are on the wrong path here.
I am strongly against socialist meds, but what Obama is donig is rationing health care, which IMO is completely proper for old people, and is necessary under his plan.
It's too bad this will be used as a scare tactic to try to kill the bill.

John, please say you are joking?:)bulb
Here is what I think.
Any life extending care will be weighed against quality of life, rigidly. That quality will be determined by Gov. guidelines.

Pelosi will decide that!!

The original post referred to denying health care to the elderly.

I happen to be of the belief that when my time has come, I don't want tests, IV fluids or feeding tubes to keep me alive. I also favor some forms for death planning and euthanasia in some terminal cases.

My point here was to make clear what the realities are. IMO, there is way too much BS being circulated by an elite few, that way to many accept as the gospel.

And no Tommy I wasn't joking. I couldn't open the link :D

I can't say that I totally disagree here. Then again, I only scored 82% on the conservative vs liberal test. ;)

Under this "Health Care Plan" concerning the treatment of the "Elderly".... you

can bet there will have to be a recalibration of the existing longevity stats.

Hospice will be in full force.......:)bulb

Here is a good link on the healthcare reform.
http://actionpack.ncpa.org/

I also do not understand why people think that those folks making more than 250k per year should have to pay 5.4% tax to support this program. Many of those people will be small business owners who will also be penalized 8% if they don't offer the healthcare to their employees...I see that as screwing over this class of people coming and going.
I don't see how that is going to help the economy, I would reconsider my position if I was one of the above.

The military does have private healthcare. It's called Tricare. As a veteran I can assure you that before Tricare healthcare in the military was only available if you were in dire need.

Also, congress and the executive branch are exempt from the helath care plan. They continue with the current health care they receive.......private insurance paid for by you and I.

I think most people who are in opposition of socialized medicine realize that we, the USA, are a land of millions and millions of illegal immigrants. With all of these illegals, how the hell can the system work? The welfare system is failing miserably and the illegals are mostly to blame.
I will say this again. Obama will grant citizenship to the illegals to ensure his re-election IMO.
Dirty pool bottom line!!!
In Canada, according to Tom Brown, one must be a citizen and pay taxes(some of the highest in the world btw)to receive healthcare. Canada does not have the best healthcare in the world either.
I don't see the Illegal Meskins paying taxes even if they are granted citizenship.
Food for thought.
I don't see a problem with healthcare. I pay my insurance every month.
I drive a beat up pick up truck. I don't have "bling" wheels. My boat is 12 yrs old.
I work nearly 7 days a week and I'm proud to say I'm American. I bitch about my taxes and I vote at nearly every opportunity.
Hell, if there's free healthcare, why not free fire insurance for my house? Why not free car insurance?
Where does it end? It doesn't once that ball starts rolling downhill!!

Isn't the VA (Tricare) operated by the Govt?

I've read that TRICARE operates as a single-payer health care system.

Glad you don't see any problem with the health care system.

WTF, does you driving a beat up pickup truck without bling wheels, and a 12 year old boat have to do with a health care system that's in dire need of a major overhaul?

BTW, according to most here we are already giving all the free stuff to illegals. Also, I don't recall ever stating that I favor "free health care"
