Kathleen Sebelius Won’t Waive Regulation For Girl With Five Weeks To Live: ‘Someone Lives And Someone Dies’

 

 

 

” Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius rebuffed an appeal from Rep. Lou Barletta on behalf of a girl who needs a lung transplant but can’t get one because of a federal regulation that prevents her from qualifying for a transplant.

“Please, suspend the rules until we look at this policy,” Barletta, a Pennsylvania Republican, asked Sebelius during a House hearing Tuesday on behalf of Sarah Murnaghan, a 10-year-old girl who needs a lung transplant. She can’t qualify for an adult lung transplant until the age of 12, according to federal regulations, but Sebelius has the authority to waive that rule on her behalf. The pediatric lungs for which she currently qualifies aren’t available.”

Obamacare Is About Power

 

 

 

” Members of the House of Representatives are scheduled to vote Thursday to repeal all of Obamacare. Given that the House voted to repeal the law last year, some commentators and observers have questioned the need for another repeal vote.

However, the scandals coming to light over the last week perfectly make the case for why Congress must eradicate the law from the statute books.

On Friday, the Internal Revenue Service finally disclosed that it had spent years targeting tea party and other conservative groups, delaying their applications for non-profit status and giving those applications additional scrutiny — solely because of those groups’ political beliefs.

Also on Friday, The Washington Post revealed that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius personally asked health industry groups to contribute to Enroll America, a pro-Obamacare front group working to “educate” the public about the law’s supposed benefits.

While we don’t yet know all the details about these scandals, we do know that the IRS grossly abused its power at a time when Obamacare grants it massive new authority. The Treasury Department’s Inspector General has said Obamacare represents “the largest set of tax law changes in 20 years,” with at least 42 provisions adding to or amending the tax code.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘Hurry Up And Die’: Japanese Minister Bemoans Cost Of Prolonged Life

” Well known in Japan for his harsh mode of speech, Deputy PM and the head of the Finance Ministry Taro Aso told at the National Council on Social Security Reforms that the Japanese government pays for the meaningless enforced prolongation of lives of those whose days are numbered.

 

  Gee , we always thought that the Government paid with OUR money , who knew it is the State’s money

 

“The minister has reportedly been referring to “tube people” in terminal condition who cannot feed themselves. The minister gave them advice to “hurry up and die,” reports AFP, instead of burdening the state with prodigal end-of-life medical care.

Almost a third of Japan’s 128 million population are older than 60. Within next half century the number of pensioners will reach 40 per cent of the population.

Though his sharp remark has sparked a scandal, Aso has not resiled from his statement, explaining that this is his personal belief and it does not correlate with “what the end-of-life medical care system should be.” “

 

  Japan has gotten the jump on the Obamacare bandwagon … but never fear rationed healthcare is on it’s way .

 

  This just goes to show the attitude of the State . We are welcome as long as we are PAYING taxes but as soon as we start to receive some of our “investment” back then we become a liability that needs to just die so that we cease to drain the government coffers .

Welcome to your future under Obamacare:

60,000 patients put on death pathway without being told but minister still says controversial end-of-life plan is ‘fantastic’

  • Pathway involves the sick being sedated and usually denied nutrition and fluids
  • Families kept in the dark when doctors withdraw lifesaving treatment
  • Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said pathway was a ‘fantastic step forward’
  • Anti-euthanasia group said: ‘The Pathway is designed to finish people off double quick

Don’t think it will happen here?

We have already made it ethically and legally acceptable to kill this amalgamation of tissue:

Fetus at 12 Weeks

Notice what the UK Health Minister says about the “pathway”:

Despite the revelations, Jeremy Hunt last night claimed the pathway was a ‘fantastic step forward’. In comments that appeared to prejudge an official inquiry into the LCP, the Health Secretary said ‘one or two’ mistakes should not be allowed to discredit the entire end-of-life system.

What happened to , ” first do no harm ” ? Here come the ” Death Panels “ . Can’t say we weren’t warned .

” The case ended up in court. Justifying their desired imposition on the family, the doctors testified in a written affidavit: “It is as certain as anything ever is in medicine that he will never recover any degree of consciousness,” Wrong.
Hassan later woke up and became reactive to the point that he can now give a “thumbs up”
when asked how he is doing. “

” Not so fast. Futile Care Theory has been pushed quietly by bioethicists in this country for years. Indeed, many, if not most, hospitals have
promulgated some form of internal futile care protocol.
Not only that, but many states — most notably Texas — legally grant hospitals the statutory right to refuse wanted life-sustaining
treatment. “
