Rationed And Pro-Abortion Health Care Hidden In "Stimulus" Bill

Betsy McCaughey is reporting that there is a totalitarian Trojan horse in the Socialist monstrosity being called a "stimulus" bill. The Trojan horse is socialized health care. The radical Left wing impulse to never let a good crisis go to waste is being followed with wicked precision.

I guess it does not matter that anytime Socialized health care is implemented it results in rationed care. And given the Liberal ethic of death and using the compassion card to justify killing the unborn, sick and elderly, this is not a good development.

"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.

Hidden Provisions

If the Obama administration’s economic stimulus bill passes the Senate in its current form, seniors in the U.S. will face similar rationing. Defenders of the system say that individuals benefit in younger years and sacrifice later.

The stimulus bill will affect every part of health care, from medical and nursing education, to how patients are treated and how much hospitals get paid. The bill allocates more funding for this bureaucracy than for the Army, Navy, Marines, and Air Force combined (90-92, 174-177, 181).

Hiding health legislation in a stimulus bill is intentional. Daschle supported the Clinton administration’s health-care overhaul in 1994, and attributed its failure to debate and delay. A year ago, Daschle wrote that the next president should act quickly before critics mount an opposition. “If that means attaching a health-care plan to the federal budget, so be it,” he said. “The issue is too important to be stalled by Senate protocol.”
