Rationing Life?

When President Obama talks about health care savings, he stresses the conversation we need to have about “end of life” choices.  You do the math.  

Rationing Life? 
By Asher Embry

“End of life” choices, euphemistically used,
Just means that the elderly’s care is refused.

That Bypass we need, who’ll decide if we’re able?
Not our Doc. It’s the actuarial table.
And Barack thinks our Grandpa acts piggish if he
Seeks relief from his pain by replacing his knee.

O insists if we’re old we’ll most likely confuse
All the “end of life” options from which we can choose.
So he’ll mandate a bureaucrat comes for a chat
And he’s hoping we’ll come to our senses and that
We’ll forego old age health care and won’t give a yelp
When they say: “We’re the government, how can we help?”

Barack thought no-one’d notice the “savings” they boast
Means that old folks stay healthy or else they are toast.
