Obamacare

Obama's nightmare socialized healthcare plan will cost us trillions. It will lead to poor quality and rationed healthcare and destroy medical innovation in our country which is the leading medical innovator in the world. Obama says he wants to control costs. How? Why by denying certain people care. For example:

"President Obama suggested at a town hall event Wednesday night that one way to shave medical costs is to stop expensive and ultimately futile procedures performed on people who are about to die and don't stand to gain from the extra care."
-- Peter Nicholas, Los Angeles Times

Yeah, sorry grandma and grandpa. Your too old to get that life saving operation. This has already happened in Canada and Britain where certain life saving procedures or medications are denied to people on the basis of "cost effectiveness". That's right the government gets to determine how much money your life is worth. The United States is on its way to the scrap heaped of history. It is not just Obama's fault, but for some reason he feels the need to accelerate our demise.
