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 flag@whitehouse.gov.”

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 flag@whitehouse.gov 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?
