Senator Kennedy Says Health Crimes Bill Includes Rationing


By: Sher Zieve

One of the mastermind’s behind the Obama Socio-fascist Health Crimes Bill is the old Leftist Lion Senator Edward (Ted) Kennedy (D-MA). And it appears that even he is finally beginning to tell the truth about the ill-conceived and disastrous plan designed to force the American people into the position of serfdom whilst he and his political-elite comrades enjoy the fruits of their ongoing unprecedented theft of and from the We-the-People.

In a Newsweek article penned by Kennedy and his partner Bob Shrum, they write of readmissions for additional problems: “Most of these readmissions are unnecessary, but we don’t reward hospitals and doctors for preventing them. By changing that, we’ll save billions of dollars.” Translation: “The government will decide who will receive care—either primary or ongoing for the same problem.” This, of course will include a “NO” for “unnecessary” procedures. Now, we have the admitted beginning of rationing. Of note is the fact that Kennedy is a US Senator and Shrum is a Kennedy political consultant. Neither are doctors. Neither has had any medical training.

As William Kristol at the Weekly Standard notes: “For in reality the government isn’t going simply to reward “good” and penalize “bad” admissions. It’s going to prevent insurance companies from paying for “unnecessary” admissions and procedures, if those companies want to participate in the government system. In other words, government bureaucrats are going to deem entire categories of treatment inefficient for all or certain categories of patients, and put those treatments out of bounds for doctors and hospitals.”

Of additional note is the fact that Obama and his family, the US Congress and their families, Government employees (these include teachers at government schools) and their families will NOT be subject to ObamaCare. They will continue with their premium services. Only We-the-Peons will be forced—yes forced—to enroll in Obama’s ‘including your body, I will soon control everything you do’ Health Crimes Bill. Did you know that if you refuse to enroll in Obama’s “qualified health care” you will be fined thousands of dollars? See the below House Bill link for Obama’s and Rep. Pelosi’s (D-CA) “qualified services.” We already know that the non-partisan CBO (Congressional Budget Office) has said that the health care numbers proposed by Obama and his Democrats are completely inaccurate, lack any controls on massive spending and his health care program will do far more harm than good.

CBO Director Douglas Elmendorf, who was appointed to this position by Obama, said recently: “We do not see the sort of fundamental changes that would be necessary to reduce the trajectory of federal health spending by a significant amount. On the contrary, the legislation significantly expands the federal responsibility for health care costs.” In other words, this is Obama’s health version of his Cap ‘N Tax ’N Con Bill. It’s another way for the political elite ruling class to steal from us all and place the money in their pockets (distribution of OUR wealth to the politicians) so that they can proceed with their control over us all.

Please continue to call the Capitol Hill Switchboard (202.224-3121), ask to speak with your representatives and senators and tell them you demand they vote NO on both Cap and Trade and ObamaCare. In a few short months, Obama & Friends have already bankrupted the country! Note: It doesn’t take long when you’re committed to destruction.

If our elected officials still refuse to listen to us and continue to perpetrate our descent into tyranny, it will be time to—en masse—take to the streets; especially those in Washington D.C. It will then be time to take down the tyrants—all of them—as they will have left us no other viable option.

“I am not a friend to a very energetic government. It is always oppressive. God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty…. And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.”—Thomas Jefferson
