Old Folks Will Die Because of Dems’ Lies
The Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary defines genocide as “the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political, or cultural group.”
So, if the 2,000+ pages of Democrat health care “reform” result in large numbers of doctors abandoning their elderly patients, or if the monstrous piece of legislation puts more seniors in a position of having to choose between medical treatment and heating their home in the winter, would it qualify the Democrats’ plan as genocide?
The Dems “reform” efforts are most certainly deliberate. They’ve spent months trying to cram their “reform” down our throats, even in the face of “unprecedented” opposition by their constituents. They’ve relentlessly pressed forward, against the will of those who elected them, ignoring calls from their constituents and heeding only the orders of their Dear Leader, Chairman ObaMao, to get something on his desk so he might proclaim victory.
So deliberate certainly fits the bill.
It wouldn’t fit the racial part of the definition, because we’d have equal opportunity to suffer among all races. But would it satisfy the requirement to systematically destroy a political or cultural group?
It’s not a huge leap to recognize that large numbers of doctors refusing to treat elderly patients would likely put many of our senior citizens out of the Democrats’ misery. If they get sick and can’t get treatment because there aren’t enough doctors, more will die. If the doctors who continue to treat our aged relatives demand a larger share of their fixed incomes, there will come a point when an old man or woman decides s/he’d rather die warm with a full belly than starving and cold with that pesky tumor removed.
Because the cuts would be targeted at medical care for seniors, it would make sense to say the destruction of our elder citizens would be systematic.
AARP’s vaunted political power qualifies our seniors as a political group and it wouldn’t be a stretch to label them a cultural group either. But even if one disagrees on the latter, old folks definitely qualify as a political group.
So if the Senate Democrats’ health care bill results in large numbers of doctors abandoning their medicare patients and causes those who continue to treat these patients to increase prices and charge for treatment that was formerly covered by the government health insurance option, we could pronounce the Democrats’ so-called health care “reform” as genocidal.
Today an elderly relative went to see his doctor, whose identity we will protect at this time. Along with the normal paperwork one leaves the doctor’s office with, he was given the following letter.

As I am sure many of you are aware there are considerable changes occurring in the healthcare (sic) field at the present time.
As of January 1st, there will be substantial negative changes in terms of reimbursement to physicians that accept Medicare patients. This will ultimately result in many physicians rejecting Medicare patients due to these severe restrictions on reimbursements.
My practice does not intend to stop seeing Medicare patients at this time, although if further cuts occur, as are promised that position undoubtedly will change. For the time being we will continue to see Medicare patients.
However, we will have to start charging for services that we have provided free of charge in the past. These charges will become effective January 1, 2010. A complete list of the appropriate fees will be available in my office upon request.

One might say, how is this? The Senate bill isn’t even law yet.
Correct. But…Harry Reid failed to achieve the nearly $250 billion “doctor fix” that would have put his cherished health care takeover bill over the cost that even his spendthrift Democrat puppets couldn’t swallow.
Now, even before the legislation is reconciled between the House and Senate, before it makes its way to Obama’s desk, before it’s signed into law, it’s adversely affecting the health care of elderly Americans. Harry Reid and every other Democrat that voted for this mountain of legislative garbage lied when they proclaimed it will not increase the deficit and it will extend Medicare.
It will KILL old people.
Democrats lie and the elderly will die!
