viagra order times;”>How you do make sure the sick and elderly die quickly? You force them into a confusing health care program they did not ask for. Then you tell them they can opt-out—but for these folks, very difficult. Then you make sure they can not have the person of their choice to help make medical decisions—hence government will decide if someone lives or dies.

Government can not afford Medicare or Medi-Cal. One way to hold down costs is to help the elderly and sick to die as quickly as possible—by making it difficult to get health care services.

“And for these frail patients – perhaps a third with mental health problems – it was frequently hard to designate an authorized representative, thereby blocking friends and family members from making selections for them.

“Right now they’re being defaulted into the plan because their friends, caregivers or families can’t make a choice for them,” says Amber Cutler of the National Senior Citizens Law Center.

“It’s really hampered the process for those who have physical or mental disabilities,” adds Aileen Harper, executive director at the Center for Health Care Rights in Los Angeles.”

Sacramento health care policies are really death panels for those that can not protect themselves from government.
