They want you to live the way they approve of … else die.
Rememeber Sarah Palin and her shout out about death panels?? We were warned.
The liberal useless media is already pushing a plan to let “health sinners” – like fat people and smokers – die without health care treatments. And when do they change the category to gun owners? Or whatever else affliction bothers the liberal elites? When do you enter one of their made up ailments? Diabetes?
Maybe they’ll make them secret death panels like in Great Britain where a national audit found that half of dying patients placed on the controversial “Liverpool Care Pathway” are never told that life-saving treatment has been withdrawn. Each year 57,000 patientsdie without being told life-saving treatments have been stopped.
The worries about Liverpool Care Pathway arise from reports that it is sometimes invoked without informing either the patient or family. Best to just keep quite.
The AP reported:
Faced with the high cost of caring for smokers and overeaters, experts say society must grapple with a blunt question: Instead of trying to penalize them and change their ways, why not just let these health sinners die?
Annual health care costs are roughly $96 billion for smokers and $147 billion for the obese, the government says. These costs accompany sometimes heroic attempts to prolong lives, including surgery, chemotherapy and other measures.
But despite these rescue attempts, smokers tend to die 10 years earlier on average, and the obese die five to 12 years prematurely, according to various researchers’ estimates.
And attempts to curb smoking and unhealthy eating frequently lead to backlash: Witness the current legal tussle over New York City’s first-of-its-kind limits on the size of sugary beverages and the vicious fight last year in California over a ballot proposal to add a $1-per-pack cigarette tax, which was ultimately defeated.
So now they are health sinners. You see how the useless media works?
Fatty you just have to die.
