    I see we have someone who doesn't understand end of life care.

    The bigger problem we have is there are way too many people who want the Federal government to have power over end of life care. Personally, Im not suicidal.

    Truth is the worst enemy of the left


    For example, that poor woman Papa Obama put in trying to sell his risky and unpopular health care

    Major Kong :

    Canfield, who had breast cancer 16 years ago…”

    Lets see, if my rudimentary math skills don’t fail me, that would mean she was diagnosed at age 34. How fortunate for her that the current American Cancer Society recommendations for regular mammographies only after age 50 weren’t in effect then.

    Just think if the PapaObama Care was in effect and took their advice in the review boards- she would be dead

    Go work in a nursing home, you will see that there is a problem with doctors prescribing treatment to medicare patients that they don't need. When I worked in memory care I saw two women die a week after getting hip replacement, and another women recieve chemo for cancer when she had end stage dementia. And they are not death panels, they are usually called " care" meetings, and doctors already have them with patients without being paid for it. Also in the meeting they are not telling patient or the family what they most do, but giving them their opinion. Many children cannot except that their parent is dying, and think they are doing the right thing. When reality they are making the end of their life more painful.

    So this somehow justifies giving power to government to do the same exact thing?

    The problem isn't with the health care system. The problem is with dishonest people.
