Obama to Jane Sturm

If you think Obama’s healthcare is not going to hurt people, you have to see this clip! As I stated previously, the elderly have no chance under his plan.

Update from Shane: I believe Melody is referring to Governor Palin’s recent statement on the health care reform debate. Now back to my blogging hiatus 🙂

  1. Stupid response. He doesn’t know all the details of cardiac treatments and shouldn’t just have said, ‘I don’t know the details about what cardiologists would recommend’. At least he did say that treatments would have to have rational, fact-based justifications. There are already pacemaker implant guidelines that are based on clinical experience and research (here: http://content.onlinejacc.org/cgi/reprint/51/21/e1.pdf)

    Section 3.4.3 (pg e40): Patient Longevity and Comorbidities. ‘…Thus, although survival after implantation is shorter among the elderly than among younger groups, survival is substantial, and age itself should not be the predominant consideration in the use of device-based therapy among the elderly.

    Conditions like overall health clearly matter too.

    1. Oops: “…*should* have said ‘I don’t know the details about what cardiologists would recommend’.”
