There is no question that none of us are going to get out of here alive. However, maybe the fact we have one of our youngest presidents is why he’s considering those of use with a few miles on us as expendable? And yes, I agree, that there has to be a cut off date on health care, when it’s time to pull the plug, and I have that dictate in my “living” will as does my wife. I’ve been poked and prodded enough in hospitals to know that I don’t want an “artificial” life. I do, however, want someone who knows me well and hopefully loves me to make that call.

Obamacare: No Room For The Terminally Ill
Barack Obama’s Death Board… the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Research (FCCCR), has established guidelines that show the government cannot afford to invest taxpayer dollars to treat terminally ill patients who are going to die anyway.
If you are terminally ill under Obamacare, you and your family will be“encouraged” or even mandated by the government to put you in hospice so you can die there, without further treatment.
Hospice care is a $4.5 billion industry. Almost half of U.S. hospice agencies are for-profit, and last year 42 percent of Americans who died did so in hospice care.
Because of this growth, the hospice industry is pushing States for laws that would lead to MORE patients using hospice care for LONGER periods—meaning, very ill patients get kicked out of the hospitals to make room for others.
If the hospice industry gets its way, the minute you or a family member is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, you will be whisked away to hospice and told to die “peacefully” there—without any say in the matter.
The FCCCR, which was given the task of defining at what point people will be denied medical procedures treatment, determined that when people are medically diagnosed as “terminal,” it will no longer be cost-effective for Medicare and/or Obamacare to pay for treatment. Among the list of terminal illnesses is one we all recognize—but not as an illness.We call it “old age.” The FCCCR calls it the most common terminal illness.
