    Bill Kevorkian Gates on Death Panels

    http://www.breitbart.tv/bill-gates-d...anel-advocate/

    They are called "Death Panels" because that is precisely what they would be.
    That's it Bill Kevorkian... government sanctioned death.

    Let's have that discussion... for we are not afraid to have it. Not at all.

    Oh, get off it. It makes absolutely no sense to spend $1 million to keep someone alive for the next three months. Especially, if I might add, if it's me. We spend sooo much money postponing death that could be put to better use. When people have a terminal illness, they aren't even told that unless they specifically ask. They just keep getting chemotherapy/whatever at $10,000 per treatment 'til their poor lil' bodies finally succumb to the poisons they're pumping them full of. Give them comfort care. Let them go, for God's sake.

    Maggie,

    It's the individuals choice to go or not.

    First it is 3-months when they'll whack you, then it is four, then it is you are terminal and denied, and who are these people to be telling us when our time is up? And who says their predictions are always correct?

    Sorry, giving these people the power to tell me, my friends or family when to kick the bucket ain't gonna happen... not if I can help it.

    That's the scary part of government "care". You're a cost, not a life. It's the Kevorkian Government.

    Should Pope John Paul II been knocked off a few months before he died, and if he would be an exception... why would he be an exception?

    Government Death Panels degrade the value of life. In fact they don't value life... and, have you seen government do anything well? Just wait until they get this power.

    Here's a case from Oregon, and this was for $4,000 a month:

    "It was horrible," Wagner told ABCNews.com. "I got a letter in the mail that basically said if you want to take the pills, we will help you get that from the doctor and we will stand there and watch you die. But we won't give you the medication to live."

    Critics of Oregon's decade-old Death With Dignity Law -- the only one of its kind in the nation -- have been up in arms over the indignity of her unsigned rejection letter.

    There are Doctor Death Panels. There are Insurance Company Death Panels. UHC will change nothing. But something should. I don't advocate "knocking someone off." No one does. However, it makes no sense, nor is it humane, to keep people alive "for as long as technology allows." I can't afford it. Neither can you.

    Sure the decision couldnt possibly be standardized and incorporated into law with criteria on when patients should be let go an not with the consent of the patient and family members. No way. Thats too rational, society couldnt do that. Its the secret socialist nurse with the shot full of red syrum that comes in the night and finishes you off because you voted McCain.

    Do I read you right?

    Maggie, you don't know what I can afford.

    It's a family decision, not Mommy Dearest DC, and illustrates another reason why government should not be involved with health care.

    Just wait until they get your DNA and can tell you what problems you are likely to encounter... no, no, no... keep these bastards away from life and death decisions of this kind.

    It's not their business.

    If you can afford it, why not spend that money to stay alive?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    There is a point where it becomes more of a torture.

    I agree that as long as you can afford it. That is don't use tax payer funded medical care and don't use insurance that the rest of us use. No use running up premiums for the rest of us.
