    Why do Republicans hate our seniors so much?

    I thought seniors were part of the GOP "base"?

    Geezz...you're a fool.
    Not wonder you vote Democrat


    1. It’s been a tough week for our left wing friends, so let’s give them a chance to use the ‘I don’t see the connection’ gambit. Let’s let ‘em say they can’t connect the dots.

    a)Democrat Tom Daschle, original nominee to head the Health and Human Services Department, and says health-care reform “will not be pain free.” Seniors should be more accepting of the conditions that come with age instead of treating them.
    Ruin Your Health With the Obama Stimulus Plan: Betsy McCaughey - Bloomberg

    b) Democrat Governor Dick Lamm once created a firestorm in Colorado (a few years after leaving the Governor’s office) when he said: “the elderly have a duty to die.”

    c) A key [Democrat] administration figure committed to cost cutting is Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a health policy advisor in the Office of Management and Budget and brother of Rahm Emanuel, the president's chief of staff wants doctors to look beyond the needs of their own patient and consider social justice. They should think about whether the money being spent on their patient could be better spent elsewhere.
    Defend Your Healthcare



    3. "Beyond Obamacare...WE need death panels.
    "...unless we start allocating health care resources more prudently — rationing, by its proper name — the exploding cost of Medicare will swamp the federal budget.
    ...in the pantheon of toxic issues — the famous “third rails” of American politics — none stands taller than overtly acknowledging that elderly Americans are not entitled to every conceivable medical procedure or pharmaceutical.
    In 2009, Sarah Palin’s rant about death panels even forced elimination from the bill of a provision to offer end-of-life consultations.

    The above written by Democrat Steven Rattner, formerly part of the Democrat Obama administration.


    Dunce.

    It's the same as always, they have forced these cuts but want to chicken out or somehow escape the fallout. You guys wanted spending cuts so you are getting spending cuts, quitcherbitchin.

    Also Boehner and Obama were also trying to make a deal during the debt ceiling stunt, and he lost control of republican caucus not being able to guarantee the votes on anything the two may have worked out. I am wondering if the teabaggers have leaned how to play with the rest of the kids yet.

    It's not a compromise, everything is going according to the Obama plan.

    I think in two years we'll start offing the elderly and/or disabled. I saw this coming when Obama was elected the first time.
