    Mandatory under Obamacare....
    I think, given that the member of Congress who drafted H.R. 3200 read and take seriously people like Klien, Yglesias, and Singer, we should be very troubled by Section 1233 of H.R. 3200. The section, titled “Advanced Care Planning Consultation” requires senior citizens to meet at least every 5 years with a doctor or nurse practitioner to discuss dying with dignity.
    The section requires that they talk to their doctor, not a lawyer, about living wills, durable healthcare powers of attorney, hospice, etc. Given the progressive intelligentsia already being on the record in favor of euthanizing the elderly, it is no small leap to see where the Democrats are headed with this.
    Legally forcing senior citizens to have “death with dignity schedules every few years is just another way to say the government wants to make sure seniors know it is time to commit suicide to save the system money.
    And saving any medical system through encouraged deaths of the elderly or unborn is not a medical system worth having. The Hippocratic Oath requires doctors to “do no harm.” That’s meant toward the patient, not the costs to the government.

    Well, I know a "few" people on the 'soylent green list' already, and I'm one of them!
    Yup, sux don't it?
    But knowing these babboons, they'll just find a lot of Dr. Kevorkians to do the job for them!
    Being no longer young: 16-39 years of age, I figure that coupled with the disbability and social security issues, most will be "eliminated" for the 'good of the country'.
    This will alleviate a lot of us old timers, that are a drain on 'their so called society', no longer being what they consider to be productive, aka: paying a LOT of taxes...
    And requiring either medical care, or some prescriptions....what a decent and humanatarian way to rid the country of us "leeches".
    I figure "we" have about 9 months left, before we are drawn by computerized lottery numbers having been aligned with dates of birth and social security factors.....
    Even those that may still be productive within their society, must be "culled" from the make room for the "true believers", and newborn slaves.
    (Hey this is radically fun and hilarious!)
    ( Too bad it may be the truth someday!)
    I am reminded of the old tv series "carousel" with the "sand man"!
    Shades of "soylent green!
    Maybe, (hint hint), the gov't will come up with a vaccine for all us old people to take, voluntarily or NOT, and then ease us out of their way!
    Seems reasonable and easy enought to do:
    "All you older than 50's and Senior citizens MUST have this vaccination to preserve your lives..."
    ( yeah, just like a jar of preserves!)
