**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ****
As you probably know, last night’s ObamaCare infomercial propaganda from ABC and Barack Hussein Obama was a ratings disaster. But, for those who watched, it was also a disaster . . . and very disturbing.
Among those watching was my friend Jan, a bright, sharp 70-year-old man, who watched the phony baloney broadcast. His e-mails are the best Cliff’s Notes version of what happened, and why we’re doomed if this ludicrous socialized medicine plan is enacted.

Subject: Interpreting Obama tonight: I should just up and f-ing die
Excuse me for being pissed off at him but I can’t help it.
I am 70 years old. In the last 4 years, I have had two episodes of cancer: colon and metastatic colon cancer in the liver.
My mother is 99 1/2. She had colorectal surgery at age 92. The option for her was to have it invade the spine and die a painful, prolonged death.
So, we should die so he [Obama] can provide health care to illegal aliens who aren’t paying any insurance.

Obama did say we have to make choices. The choice he mentioned is that we older people should take pain pills and not have surgery to cure the problem.
I am not sure that his is much different than euthanasia, but so what. It will help the indigent.
Spot on. This will be medicine under ObamaCare. And we might as well be in Europe, if that’s the case.
*** UPDATE: Jan writes more.
Our grandson was a preemie. He weighed 1 kilo (2.2 lbs). of course, he got expensive care at birth and then subsequent treatment to make sure he had no deficits (thankfully none except being somewhat small. Is being very loquatious a deficit? He is 4 ¬? now.).
Under Obama Mismanaged Care, would he be alive today?
I know it’s rhetorical, but I’d hate to answer the question.
