Savings in Obamacare by C. Headrick

We were told by Nancy Pelosi that we had to pass Obamacare to find out what was in it.  If you read between the lines, she said that they had to pass Obamacare BEFORE we find out what is in it.  If we knew what was in it, it would have NEVER passed.  Then again, they did not have the votes to pass this until hundreds of thousands of dollars were promised to Nebraska, Louisiana, and Vermont.

Here is a major savings point in Obamacare.  Neurosurgery will be denied to patients over 70 years old.  Ethics panels comprised of administrators will tell neurosurgeons that their patients will be approved for comfort care.  See the savings?  A 71 year old with a bleed out or stroke will be denied life-saving surgery but will be given a pill like presidential candidate Obama proposed.  In other words, we will have Obama to thank for killing our parents and elderly for the greater good of saving money.

    But you have to take that comment about the pill in the context of what he was discussing (end of life discussions between patients and doctors). Here is an article where the full transcript and context of what he said is discussed:

      I heard the Q&A in which a woman explains how her grandmother at a late age had surgery and is still doing fine at 101. Obama replied that she could have been given a pill instead. When Obamacare is in force, this late surgery will NOT be approved. Why give up your liberty and hand over your health & life decisions to the government?

    Hey Carol – I enjoy reading this blog even though we definitely have completely different opinions on Obama. On this post, please see this response from the American Association of Neurological Surgeons as I don’t believe that there is anything in the health care law that denies neurosurgery to those over 70. If there is something specific in the law, please send me the section as I could be wrong.
