In a 2007 speech at UC-Berkley, Robert B. Reich, former secretary of labor under Bill Clinton (and big-time liberal democrat), speaking about what democrat politicians would say if they were honest:
“We are going to have to, if you are very old, we’re not going to give you all that technology and all those drugs for the last couple of years of your life to keep you maybe going for another couple of months. It’s too expensive. So we’re going to let you die.”
I have heard the soundbite.
In every socialized medicinal system, the elderly get the shaft. They are told that to treat them would be too expensive and thus unfair. They have life-saving care withheld from them, which to me qualifies as murder. Not surprising, since these are the same champions of abortion. Very surprising that they claim the moral high ground on caring for those in need.
Still think there won’t be “death panels”?
