How would you like a Republican Death Panel standing between you and your health?

Well, if the proposed new amendment to the Health care Plan which has raised such an issue with both the Tea Party and the Catholic Bishops (both of which are groups who claim rights over your health) goes through that’s just what you’ll have.

From PoliticusUSA:

Sen. Roy "How's Your Blood Sugar?" Blunt

The amendment is sponsored by Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) and it is the death panel Sarah Palin preached about during the healthcare reform debate, and the ultimate loss of freedom (life) at the hands of Republicans. It is also how theocracy begins. The measure allows insurers or employers to claim moral or religious objection to covering

HIV/AIDS screenings, Type 2 Diabetes treatments, cancer tests or anything else they deem inappropriate or the result of an ‘unhealthy‘ or ‘immoral‘ lifestyle. Similarly, a health plan could refuse to cover mental health care on the grounds that the plan believes that psychiatric problems should be treated with prayer.”

The measure serves two purposes. It allows religious extremists to control healthcare decisions for all Americans, and undermines the new health law.

I’ve learned two things from this:

1. Because of my “immoral” lifestyle I have type 2 diabetes and doctors are going to give up the thousands of dollars they make from me and my insurance companies by banning treatment.

2. Newt, Mitt and Rick won’t get their needed mental health care, but can get together and pray their crazy ideas away.

I’m curious which totally healthy religious folks will be on the Death Panel. Certainly they are planning for an Atheist representative.

No?

Oh, well… what did you expect?

  1. Good God. Blunt has always been an idiot. in recent years he has become a paid idiot (through is wife the lobbyist). Wonder which insurance company is paying her to have him ram this through the Senate?

  2. Little do you know the republican part is in cahoots with the Evil Undertakes’ Association of America to provide more bodies in return for free services…
