Obama Defends Healthcare: 1st Casualty Grandma
Today, Obama defended his healthcare plan. When asked to defend provisions that would end care for the elderly, Obama said two things that very clearly articulate for me where Obama stands spiritually as well as his position on life. First, somebody asked about whether a person’s will to live matters. Obama’s response was that spiritual matters will not be factored in. Apparently, Obama has now set aside the first amendment entirely. Your Christian convictions will not factor into your health. Later, on the hot topic of elderly care, he went on to say that it might be better to take a pain pill than to provide life saving care. Just in case you haven’t seen a person pass away in a hospital, a pain pill is how one is eased into death. For Obama, pain pill is a code word for euthanize. Now I know why drug companies support Obamacare. The stand to benefit from providing pain pills instead of surgeries. This has to be the most shocking thing I have ever heard any leader in this country take seriously. Usually this kind of extremism is reserved for the fringe of the parties, but what did anyone expect when they elected one of these to the white house.
