Death Panels- part 2- Jon Stewart

A couple readers of my last post, titled: (Death Panel Member- an exciting NEW job in Obama-Care) these readers told me that I was basically uninformed and that I was “missing the point” on Obama- Care and “living wills.”

As I do, from time to time, is answer a question WITH a question:

“…Does having a ‘living will’ make you MORE healthy..??”

We are talking about a “health bill”, right..??

If we were talking about a “death bill”, then I could understand the relevance in having a “living will” attached to it.

But we are not talking about a “death bill.”

So, again; does having a living will make you MORE healthy..??

Compassion.

The decisive answer from the left would play on compassion. “..The government CARES about you and they want to make sure that you have a living will so that you do not burden your children with the tough decisions during ‘end of life.”

As I proved with my last post, a living will can place a bigger burden on the children because many old people demand NOT to be kept alive on machines, yet the doctor may have a cure. The living will can stop this “cure” from taking place.

Compassion is the only explanation that the left has to explain “living wills” being placed in a “health care bill.”

I say:

If the government truly cared about us, we wouldn’t be having this conversation because we wouldn’t have 47 million uninsured Americans. Politicians: republicans and democrats alike; would have solved this problem 30 years ago.

Armed with this knowledge, I tend to not give “compassion” a role in this story.

“Living wills” are in the “death bill”, excuse me, I mean “health bill” because the government knows that most old people will say that they do not want to be kept alive by machines. “..If it is my time to die, so be it. I do not want to lie in some bed for years..”

The government also knows that most children will ask a doctor to do “all he can to save their parents.”

The living will takes the heat off of everyone involved.

The government does not have to pay for big medical procedures IF a person signed a living will. The children, who paid thousands in tax dollars, cannot DEMAND that the government pay for life saving cures, because: “your Mom signed a living will saying she didn’t want to be kept alive by machines, sorry..”

There are FAR TOO MANY people concerned about this bill for it to be a conspiracy by drug companies. (As the left claims.)

Let’s take a look at a couple of current polls. These polls will show how support for this health care bill is slipping.

This important voter block was asked:

“..Are you happy with Obama’s health care bill- No or Yes..??”

However, when we look at another important voter group, it gets a little closer. But still, voters seem unhappy about this bill.

Folks, there is more here that needs to be talked over, and WE SHOULD TALK. But all I am hearing is a debate taking place on TV that sounds like this:

You are wrong, I’m right.

NO- I’m right. The bill doesn’t say that, you are wrong.

No- you are wrong. On page 345,678 of the health care bill, it says…

(And so on, and so on. That is what TV News sounds like, to me.)

Hence, we enter the realm of Jon Stewart.

Where the news is FUNNY. A happy place for liberals to dwell.

Jon Stewart interviews Betsy McCaughey on the health care bill.

I am going to explain who these two people are by using the oppositions definition:

“…Betsy McCaughey is a lying liar, who lies about lying. She lied about Bill Clinton’s health care bill in 1993. And now, today, she is lying about Obama’s health care bill. Betsy lies about lying, even when lying about the lies she lied about..”

(That is who Betsy McCaughey is; as described by the left.)

Now, who is Jon Stewart; as described by the right?)

“…Jon Stewart is a hack, who used to be a stand-up comedian. (A stand-up comic: the perfect person to give “trusted” news.) Stewart has his head so far up the ass of the democratic party, that he reads his scripted lines off of the democrats tonsils. The only thing that Jon Stewart has done right, was steal the 30 year old format from Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update.”

OK, so now we know who these two people are.

On Thursday night, these two “scholars” met, and went head to head, on the health care bill.

I may surprise you, but I believe that BOTH Jon and Betsy were being “hyperbolic and dangerous.”

The simple fact that two people, (who both claim that they read this bill) can come up with two different meanings for aspects of it, scares the crap out of me.

Because these are two (some what) average Americans.

Just wait until congress, lawyers, and dozens of “special interest” groups get a hold of this health care bill..!!

I thought OJ was guilty..??

I figured that Michael Jackson was guilty..??

I was surprised to find out that I was wrong on both accounts. (Or was I..??)

YOU might be surprised to find out what a slick lawyer, backed by millions of funds from some special interest group, can do with the wording in this health care bill.

Forget the dam “republicans are wrong”, “democrats are wrong” bullshit.

This bill is wrong because it means different things to different people.

Congress MUST deliver a bill that everyone can understand. Things MUST be spelled out. Defined.

We need to know how much it will cost, and what we stand to lose in the way of current health care quality.

The simple fact that you and I are arguing about “death panels” and free abortions for everyone, means the wording MUST be changed.

And most of all…

There should be NO DOUBT whether this bill will “pull the plug” on grandma.
