DEATH PANEL by any other name = SENATE!

Posted on December 4, 2009. Filed under: Politics | Tags: , , , , , |


This week the Senate was given a choice.  Do they accept the extreme cuts to senior citizen benefits in the proposed Healthcare bill, or do they put the senior benefits back into the bill by sending it back to be fixed by the Senate Finance Committee?  This was proposed as an amendment to the Healthcare proposal now in the Senate. 

There are 500 Billion dollars in immediate proposed cuts to seniors.  From 2010 to 2020 senior benefits will be reduced by 3 Trillion Dollars as confirmed by the CBO to the non-Democrats in the Senate.       Here are a few things that are impacted:

1)      14.6 Billion cut from nursing homes

2)      7.6 Billion cut from Hospice Care

3)      137.5 Billion cut from hospitals who treat Seniors (primarily rural areas)

4)      Medicare Advantage

Medicare Advantage is essentially a private health insurance plan that Seniors pay into, to get additional benefits.  Seniors pay quite a bit for this policy.  Approximately 20% of the seniors use this plan today.  This plan provided lower deductibles, lower co-pays, preventive care screening, home health help for the chronically ill and many other things such as eye glasses, hearing aides, etc.  This is the first instance of the government electing to get rid of a private plan.  We will be seeing many more as the government uses their power to get rid of the competition.  One may say what is the reasoning behind getting rid of something like Medicare Advantage that the seniors pay extra for…..  Well, the answer is simple.  It is another payoff to get support.  AARP who is supposed to represent seniors used to be against the health bill.  Now they say all of their members are for it.  AARP has a competitive plan like Medicare Advantage that offers benefits to seniors at a much higher rate.  AARP stands to make a lot of money on this deal.  It is not about the seniors, it is about making money.

I used to believe in the inherent goodness of people.  The actions of the 58 Senators who voted to keep these cuts to senior care is appalling.  To make good on the deal to the AARP and countless others, they are voting to hurt millions of Americans.  It was the only way they could think of to “pay for the expansion of government”.

These are the same people who voted not to partake in this health care proposed in the plan.  Clearly they believe they are better than you!!   If they truly believe this bill is good for the majority of the people, they would also be in the plan.  The group it will advantage is some of the people in the US who have never contributed to a hospital insurance plan or to medicare.  It is about the democrats trying to “buy” the vote of the poor with Healthcare! 

There are also provisions to have the illegal aliens on healthcare.  Again, this is about getting a large block of people who can vote for the democrats and their vision of a socialist America.

58 United States Senators weighed in on the value of seniors to society by voting for the cuts to senior healthcare.   This is a clear indication of what is to come, when the government is in charge of our heathcare.  The chart below has the name and state of everyone who voted to make life and death decisions for the seniors now and the seniors in future.  This is a very good example of how the bureaucrats in Washington will be determining who will get adequate healthcare.  Is it the answer to the healthcare woes to choose who to help with this healthcare bill and who to hurt?

These people are immoral and definitely not doing their job per the constitution.  Vote them out of office.   The underlined bold names are the ones up for election this year.  Do not worry about having to save this blog for future.  My Christmas gift to all of you, is that I will be publishing this every year so we can continue to get the rest of them out.  We must be diligent and help these people return home so they can learn what it is like to be a loyal citizen.

My only request is this:  Please share this blog with your friends and neighbors.  It truly needs to go viral.  Thank you.

Thank you for putting this information out! So much for democrat compassion for the sick and Elderly! I am with you! I sent faxes today to 108 members of congress via Grassfire.org. We need to pray that enough of them will have the backbone to vote no on this health care disaster bill that will destroy the finest health care system in the world!

You left out Bill Nelson, senator from Fla. He is a disgrace to this Country as are the corrupt “obama cabinet”

The real problem, of course, it that this and virtually every other bill since January is not authorized by Article I of the Constitution, the Supreme Law of the Land. All should have been declared un-Constitutional long ago.

One has to ask, “Where are the honorable men and women within the Congress?” The follow-on question is, “Why do we continue to support those who continually disregard their basic oath of office?”

What they are doing, in plain words, is taking money from some of the people and giving to others of their choice under the guise of “helping” the unfortunate. In plain language, what they are truly doing is “legally” stealing money from some and redistributing it to others in order to further their own political fortune.

That’s my opinion, how say you?

I think it is very difficult to find men and women who can remain unchanged when they are in Washington for years. They become intoxicated by their own self importance and what they are able to gain in terms of wealth and power. Until we can find a way to make being a career politician less attractive, I suspect it will always be a problem to some degree. They forget the oath and their duty when courted by lobbyists and others.

Perhaps the best way is for everyone to vote them out on a regular basis.
