Big Brother is Watching

This White House website says, “opponents of health insurance reform may find the truth a little inconvenient … Scary chain emails and videos are starting to percolate on the internet, breathlessly claiming, for example, to “uncover” the truth about the President’s health insurance reform positions … If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to”

The most benign explanation is that this administration thinks the people in this country are too stupid to sift through information. 

Given the credibility problems of this administration:

  • claiming “common ground” on abortion while pushing through the most pro-abortion agenda in history;  
  • repeatedly claiming that private insurance will be available, when reasoned commentary states “The ‘Public Plan’ Would Be the Only Plan;” and
  • the infamous page 425 of the massive, mostly unread, health care bill that would require everyone on Social Security/Medicare (senior citizens, the disabled) to “undergo a counseling session every 5 years” …  “that Medicare will pay for — not mandate — ‘advance care planning consultations’ between individuals and physicians every five years, during which the entire spectrum of end-of-life options can be explained and discussed…” (post here) …  

where claims of pushing euthanasia are denied, but why else go over those options every five years for a selected group of the population ?

…given their credibility problems, what this administration calls “fishy” is likely simply someone coming to their own conclusion.   The implication of that is chilling.

    I reported my 85-year old Republican mother to and asked them to “straighten her out”. She said she was against euthanasia for the elderly in lieu of costly medical treatment.

    Did Obama send a personal response?
