This from the SWAMP:
In a nationally televised event at the White House, Obama said families need better information so they don’t unthinkingly approve “additional tests or additional drugs that the evidence shows is not necessarily going to improve care.”
He added: “Maybe you’re better off not having the surgery, but taking the painkiller.”
My grandfather, who lived in Canada, had a femur bone that was dissolving from the hip down. His Canadian health care experience was brutal. By the time his more than a year wait for his hip replacement surgery, a third of the bone had dissolved. He had to sleep in a chair, and had, as you can imagine, little mobility and great pain.
My grandfather was on pain killers all the time, but even Canada did not go as far as President Obama went last night on the ABC informercial for ObamaCare. The President said the government might recommend painkillers instead of surgery.
If the President plan passes, your choices and decisions will be made by narcotic dispensing bureaucrats.
