Our leaders should support Constitution

February 17, 2013

DEAR EDITOR: I understand Vice President Biden’s quote recently, “take thousands of people out of harm’s way” is a great idea, but historically, gun control has never worked....

It is a nasty fact of modern life but we must all accept (besides Bill Gates and his ilk)a need for panels of medical experts with the power to tell us "sorry, (reasonable costs to) society can't cover that medical procedure".

It doesn't matter if you are a D or an R, if it's private heathcare or obamacare, these are the plain facts of modern life. Move on!

Marmel-

What would you call a private insurance company's policy writers (or panel) if their healthcare policies deliberately do not cover all life-saving medical procedures? How about “Death panels?” By definition, this is choosing who lives and who dies, isn't it? The difference is, a corporation tells Americans to go die for corporate profits, versus obamacare panels decides who lives and who dies (not for personal gain) but as a necessary evil to benefit society as a whole.

Newsflash! There is no difference between the private healthcare providers and Obamacare, NOT EVERYTHING IS COVERED BY ANY MAINSTREAM INSURANCE PROVIDER!

Private health care corporations all have "DEATH PANELS" based on the right wing definition of death panels.

Another idiotic American debate!

Steven Rattner Obama administration lead advisor to Treasury from NYTIMES

“Well, maybe not death panels, exactly, but unless we start allocating health care resources more prudently — rationing, by its proper name — the exploding cost of Medicare will swamp the federal budget.” “Medicare needs to take a cue from Willie Sutton, who reportedly said he robbed banks because that’s where the money was. The big money in Medicare is not to be found in Mr. Ryan’s competition or Mr. Obama’s innovation, but in reducing the cost of treating people in the last year of life, which consumes more than a quarter of the program’s budget.” “At the least, the Independent Payment Advisory Board should be allowed to offer changes in services and costs. We may shrink from such stomach-wrenching choices, but they are inescapable.”

Funny how the charade Rush was saying this 3 years ago. Who's the charade reallystepped in it? I think you know the answer.. YOU!

So then usblues YOU have the audacity to accuse both your mother and your father of stealing your future from you. They are BOTH retired on FULL pensions. Both got retirement bonus payments to boot. Pretty disrespectful of you considering what your parents have done for you. You are a spoiled BRAT. who hates and criticizes every thing including now your parents
