The Czar has noted that a bizarre complaint about Dick Cheney’s recent heart transplant is that he is “too old” to receive one.
Put simply, this is an attempt to create a meme that you can be too old to receive a heart transplant, and therefore there is nothing wrong whatsoever with what Sarah Palin described as Death Panels. Yes, under Obamacare, a patient could be denied life-extending procedures if there is a waiting list of, you know, more lively people who would benefit more.
No joke. Zeke Emanuel put it in there himself. Emaneul has long-proposed that elderly people be triaged out of healthcare. Our water-bearing MSM is more than happy to spread the message in hopes some of you agree.
