Democrats Crank Up Death Panel Talk Following Obama Win

Now that Obama has secured another four years in the White House, it is time for the administration to crank out more Obamacare propaganda, specifically arguments about the cost ineffectiveness of keeping old people alive.

Enter the internet’s liberal bellwether, Salon.com. Earlier today, the website posted an article by Matthew Yglesias, a blogger and Democrat operative who spent time at the Soros’ project, ThinkProgress.

According to Yglesias, old folks are “the key issue in the federal budget” and their welfare accounts “for the remarkable lack of apparent cost effectiveness of the American health care system.”

“When the patient is already over 80, the simple fact of the matter is that no amount of treatment is going to work miracles in terms of life expectancy or quality of life,” he writes.

In other words, following Mr. Yglesias logic, if the government is going to address the “remarkable lack of apparent cost effectiveness of the American health care system,” steps need to be taken to reduce cost at the lower end of the curve.

We can now expect more and more Democrats to talk about what was heretofore unmentionable — death panels. Yglesias, in fact, uses the phrase in his headline.

In September, a top Democrat strategist, Steven Rattner, said rationing under Obamacare is inevitable. “We need death panels,” he wrote for the New York Times. “Well, maybe not death panels, exactly, but unless we start allocating health care resources more prudently — rationing, by its proper name — the exploding cost of Medicare will swamp the federal budget.”

Rattner serves on the board the New America Foundation, a George Soros operation that was instrumental in supporting Obamacare in 2010.

During a question and answer session, Gates implied that elderly patients undergoing expensive health care treatments should be killed and the money spent elsewhere.

Gates said there was a “lack of willingness” to consider the question of choosing between “spending a million dollars on that last three months of life for that patient” or laying off ten teachers.

“But that’s called the death panel and you’re not supposed to have that discussion,” added Gates.

Michigan Democrat Congressman John Dingell , the Dean of the U.S. House of Representatives, was the primary author of HR 3200, the first House draft of its version of health care reform. He also voted to approve the final Senate version, which has remained very unpopular nationally.

The octogenarian famously told a local radio program soon after the final March 21, 2010 health care vote in the House that the newly enacted Affordable Care Act, called ObamaCare by its critics, aims to “control the people.”

Krugman: You can call em death panels but they’ll save us money

In 1938, just a few years prior to Margaret Sager’s American Birth Control League (ABCL) changing it’s name to Planned Parenthood, which today is the largest abortion provider in the nation, a group of American Eugenics Society Members and Sanger’s American Birth Control League (ABCL) members got together and formed the National Society for the Legalization of Euthanasia. Heading this pro-euthanasia panel was a man by the name of Charles F. Potter who, in 1938 was also on the ABCL Committee for Planned Parenthood according to a February 1938, New York Times story. Potter was the leader of the First Humanist Society and organized this entire pro-euthanasia group.
