The Only Government Action That Will Kill Americans is Obamacare
We’ve been going back to the archives. If you’re just joining us, we have been going back to the archives of previous programs as far back as 16 years ago to demonstrate the Democrat reaction to the new Republican budget that Paul Ryan presented yesterday. It’s nothing new. They always claim that people are gonna die, old people, kids, whatever, Republican budgets kill people when in fact if anybody’s gonna die because of government action in this country, it’s gonna be because of Obamacare and death panels. Now, I want to take you back to June 24th, 2009, ABC had a primetime special, questions for the president, Prescription for America.
A member of the audience, Jane Sturm, had a question. She said, “My mother is now over 105. But at 100, the doctors said to her, ‘I can’t do anything more unless you have a pacemaker.’ I said, ‘Go for it.’ She said, ‘Go for it.’ But the specialist said, ‘No, she’s too old.’ But when the other specialist saw her and saw her joy of life, he said, ‘I’m going for it.’ That was over five years ago. … Outside the medical criteria for prolonging life for somebody who is elderly, is there any –” keep in mind what we’ve got here. We have an American citizen asking the president of the United States, “– is there any consideration that can be given for a certain spirit, a certain joy of living, a quality of life, or is it just a medical cutoff at a certain age?” She is asking Obama essentially whether or not under his plan, her mother would be allowed to live, would be allowed to get a pacemaker, because the government is going to have the power to decide whether or not her mother got one.
