Paul Krugman, the left’s economist of choice, has long sprouted the "benefits" of a government healthcare takeover. Yet one benefit that … well… surprised me somewhat was his endorsement of "death panels" under Obamacare to cut costs. Have a listen to him here:
Okay, so he didn’t actually endorse Death Panels, but what he did say is just as scary. He admitted that government bureaucrats – not doctors and patients – will decide what treatment is appropriate. And that this will "save quite a lot of money".
So, if you are in need of treatment, and you and your doctors agree on a course of action, a government bureaucrat can intervene and say "nope, sorry, too expensive". And this is coming from someone who supports the plan!
And if this isn’t enough to send shivers down your spine, I don’t know what will.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: REPEAL AND REPLACE!
