Here is what's coming if you vote for Obama

...and his socialist socialized medicine agenda.

State denies cancer treatment, offers suicide instead
'To say, we'll pay for you to die, but not pay for you to live, it's cruel'

State officials have offered a lung cancer patient the option of having the Oregon Health Plan, set up in 1994 to ration health care, pay for an assisted suicide but not for the chemotherapy prescribed by her physician.

The story appears to be a happy ending for Barbara Wagner, who has been notified by a drug manufacturer that it will provide the expensive medication, estimated to cost $4,000 a month, for the first year and then allow her to apply for further treatment, according to a report in the Eugene Register-Guard.

But the word from the state was coverage for palliative care, which would include the state's assisted suicide program, would be allowed but not coverage for the cancer treatment drugs.

"To say to someone, we'll pay for you to die, but not pay for you to live, it's cruel," Wagner told the newspaper. "I get angry. Who do they think they are?"

Here is the full article:

Repeat after me: Socialism kills. Socialism kills. Socialism kills.

A somewhat bleary-eyed post today, because I stayed up to watch the Detroit Red Wings clinch the Stanley Cup last night. At least it didn't go 3 overtimes like Monday's game did!

For all the negatives in Michigan, we still have the Wings. Congratulations to all from the Providentia Blog!

A wonderful way to poke the AlGoreists in the eye!

WorldnetDaily linked to this site today, and I thought I would pass it along to my loyal readers. Somehow it appeals to my more visceral side! Click on the image to go to the site. If I can work it out, I will drive my car to my club to fire my guns. Surely that will generate some excess CO2!
