While taking calls from left wing bloggers, President Obama was asked if it is true that Section 102 of the House HealthCare
Bill would outlaw private insurance. He asked if people will be able to keep their insurance. Obama replied: “You know, I have to say that I am not familiar with the provision you are talking about.” [But still he asks us to put aside our concerns and just get this bill passed...]

Page 425 is where the Congress would make it mandatory that every five years people in Medicare have a required "counseling session", where they will be able to tell seniors how to end their life sooner." Well, that is, except for the old people in Congress or working for the government, for they get to keep their private insurance.....

The proposal specifically calls for the consultation to recommend "palliative care and hospice" for seniors in their mandatory counseling sessions. Palliative care and hospice generally focus only on pain relief until death.

The measure requires "an explanation by the practitioner of the continuum of end-of-life services and supports available, including palliative care and hospice, and benefits for such services and supports that are available under this title." The use of "helpful" documents such as advance directives and a health care proxy would be explained.


In an article in the Wall Street Journal it is noted that Obama's Congressional Budget Office Director Peter Orszag sent a letter to Capitol Hill which asks for the creation of yet another new agency, this one with the power to cut spending and implement changes in Medicare.


When House Republicans recently wrote a constituency letter which states that ‘House Democrats unveiled a government-run health care plan,’”, the Franking Commission , which determines which letters can be sent to constituents on the tax payer dime, ordained that ‘You cannot use that language. You must use, ‘The House majority unveiled a public option health care plan,’or ‘just last week the House majority unveiled a health care plan which I believe will cost taxpayers…’” This surely seems to me to be a free speech issue, which used to be guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States. It leaves one to wonder what restraints are being put on supposed misstatements by the Democrats in their constituent letters. My guess is -none- as it should be.... Republicans will be forced to use the Democrats’ version of language describing their attempted government takeover of healthcare on their official communications with their constituents or they will have to pay for the postage personally.


Excerpted from Matt Barber of Townhall: The president has more "czars" running around than Mother Russia. It's mondo bizarro. Kind of fitting, though; must be a communist thing. Obama has chosen Harvard professor John Holdren as "science czar" providing the latest example of just how bad America really muffed it last November. It could give us a sneak-peak into the not-so-distant future should this Obamacare-health-scare become reality.

In the name of population control, Holdren has advocated both forced abortion and compulsory sterilization through government-administered tainting of the water supply. In a book he co-authored, entitled "Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment," Holdren calls for a "Planetary Regime" to enforce mandatory abortions and limit the use of natural resources.

He writes: "There exists ample authority under which population growth could be regulated. It has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society." [To which I add that this will become one of Obama's "Major Crisis Moments"]

Holdren further suggests that since "[a]dding a sterilant to drinking water or staple foods is a suggestion that seems to horrify people more than most proposals for involuntary fertility control," such an approach would have to "meet some rather stiff requirements; … be uniformly effective; … free of dangerous or unpleasant side effects;" and pass both PETA and AARP muster by having "no effect on members of the opposite sex, children, old people, pets, or livestock."

Czar Holdren further postulates that "a comprehensive Planetary Regime could control the development, administration, conservation, and distribution of all natural resources, renewable or nonrenewable. The Planetary Regime might be given responsibility for determining the optimum population for the world and for each region and for arbitrating various countries' shares within their regional limits."

[I know, I know - some will say that this man wrote this book in the 70's and that just because he was so intent on the ideas that he wrote a book chronicling it does not mean that this is how he will ACT during his Czarship. Right..... of course not. Well, only if he feels he can get away with it! It is yet another example of the sorts of people whom Obama chooses to lead our country, this time via a Czar with no Congressional oversite - RADICAL people with RADICAL, hate-America ideas...] I must read 1984
