"Don't Make Me Angry..."

Dan Riehl reports: "Senior Voters Riled Up Over ObamaCare". And check out some of the numbers:

82% believe that cost-effectiveness is NOT a justification for rationing, agreeing with the statement, "As a matter of principle, the government should not ration care or deny treatment options based on what it calls "cost-effectiveness." I don"t trust the government to put a cost on human life."" Only 7% disagree.

71% believe "the government is likely to limit treatment options through Medicare and Medicaid based on cost within the next several years," compared to 10% who believe it is unlikely. 44% say it is "very likely."

85% report they will be truly "angry" "if the government does in fact ration Medicare and Medicaid," including 59% who respond it will make them "very angry." Importantly in this election year, 87% of swing-vote seniors say that Medicare and Medicaid rationing would make them "angry."


Democrats, you've just given our seasoned citizen voters an accidental overdose of gamma radiation. You won't like them come November.

Oh, crap. They're going to burn down a Denny's in protest, aren't they?

And meanwhile, the Republicans continue to insist that repealing this horror is an election loser. Dumbasses.

It's already started. My mother just finished going through kemo and radiation and had to occasionally get a very painful shot. They would always give her an anesthetic for the area because of it. The last time she went in they told her that medicare didn't cover it anymore. She had to pay out of pocket for the anesthetic.

Maybe if you get angry and publicly complain about it you won't "get" to participate, like the insurers ;)

Bill Fabrizio:

Seniors, this is our moment! Vote against Obamacare and all democratic party candidates before it's too late. And, in this matter, "too late" means for eternity!

One thing you can be sure of, old people VOTE.

Tsar Nicholas II:

Well, the last time seniors were riled up to vote against Democrats was Nov. 1994, so this is not good news in Donkey Land.

Jim Addison:

"Resident Obama seemed genuinely surprised to learn that Grandma would prefer the hip operation to the pain pills and staying home to die, and seems determined to register her disapproval at the voting booth."

Of course, we'll never read that in a news article. For one thing, Obama was golfing and could not be reached for comment, not that he gives a rat's patootie what Grandma thinks. He won, you know.
