The Devil is now hidden in the details


Obama Demands T4 program

In fact, when Obama returned from his recent foreign trip, he found that Congress was not going to comply. Bills had been drafted in the Senate and the House which paid lip service to his cost-cutting mantra, including the alleged substitution of "quality for quantity" and other such sophistries. But neither the Kennedy-Dodd bill, which was going through the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, nor the House bill, which was drafted in collaboration among the Energy and Commerce, Ways and Means, and Education and Labor committees, included the required "stick" to dictate cuts: the panel of experts free of Congressional control.

If the President were going to get his Hitler health program through, he was going to have to do more than wield his fascist thuggery to pass the bill. He would have to change the bill itself.

Thus, just after midnight, on July 16, the White House forced the three House committees managing the health-care legislation to rewrite the bills, to incorporate the Emanuel-Orszag T4 board into the legislation. Introduced as a "manager's amendment," the relevant section, according to Politico, which saw a draft, calls for the creation of an Independent Medicare Advisory Council, which would be under Obama's direct control.

Of course, Nazis define their own lives as worthy of living, so this system becomes a machine to allow them to let their enemies die along with "useless eaters" while providing necessary care to their buddies.
