Is Obama telling Americans to “Wither on the Vine”

Some of you may not be old enough, and others may not remember, but Liberals in
the AFL-CIO (I apologize for that redundancy) ran a patently Dishonest ad back
in the 90’s taking this quote by Newt Gingrich
out of context:
In it, a narrator says, "When you're older, and you're sick, Medicare is
more than health care, it's peace of mind." Then, the spot cuts to House Speaker
Newt Gingrich delivering a speech to Blue Cross on October 24, 1995: "Now we
don't get rid of it in round one because we think that's politically smart and
we don't think that's the right way to go through a transition. But we believe
it's going to wither on the vine."...
Here's the full quote:
"What do you think the health care financing administration is? It's a
centralized command bureaucracy. It's everything we're telling Boris Yeltsin to
get rid of. Now we don't get rid of it in round one because we don't think
that's politically smart and we don't think that's the right way to go through a
transition. But we believe it's going to wither on the vine because we think
people are going to voluntarily leave it. Voluntarily."
Clearly Newt was talking about the bureaucracy withering on the vine and not the
benefits themselves, but that’s how the Left plays the game… They Lie.
This was misrepresented so much that even after the dust settled people were
saying that Newt wanted to let old people who were on Medicare “Wither on the
You couldn’t count on the Media to get it right and redirect the People to the
Truth on that issue because we all know how much the “Free Press” loved Newt.
There were so fond of him that after the American People ushered he and his
REPUBLICan Revolution into Office in 1994, Newsweak quickly did a cover
portraying that choice by the American People as “How the Gingrich Stole
Sure, there’s no bias in the Media.
Fast forward to 2009 and the Obama Era regarding this discussion about
Obama is on the record questioning his own Grandmother’s hip replacement surgery
last year and whether or not it was justified considering her health issues and
He also Dishonestly claimed that he would have paid for it himself out of pocket
because it was his Grandmother, something NOBODY stopped him from doing, yet he
didn’t do… But I digress.
Here is Barry as captured by
“I don’t know how much that hip replacement cost,” Obama said in the
interview. “I would have paid out of pocket for that hip replacement just
because she’s my grandmother.”
Obama said “you just get into some very difficult moral issues” when considering
whether “to give my grandmother, or everybody else’s aging grandparents or
parents, a hip replacement when they’re terminally ill.
“That’s where I think you just get into some very difficult moral issues,” he
said in the April 14 interview. “The chronically ill and those toward the end of
their lives are accounting for potentially 80 percent of the total health- care
bill out here.”
I don’t know how else to interpret what Barry said. It seems as if he was
questioning the need for his Grandmother’s bad hip to be replaced, wondering if
she would Live long enough for it to be Justified.
The alternative would be for her to “Wither on the Vine”, would it not?
It’s time for the American people and their Representatives to become informed
on what this Healthcare “Reform” will be before ANY Votes are cast or any
Legislation is signed.
This is far too serious an issue to let abject liars bamboozle us and lead us
astray as Barry has been, claiming to “not be familiar with that part of the
Legislation” whenever it’s convenient for him to evade the difficult and
illustrative questions that rarely make their way to him or to his teleprompter.
I assure you that if the Government is left to decide the level of importance or
necessity of any given procedure for 300,000,000 people, as opposed to funding
all possible medical avenues that any given individual would want to pursue,
they will treat you and I like a line item and we will almost definitely ALL
“Wither on the Vine” along with this Great REPUBLIC… If we can keep it!
I haven’t even begun to touch on the “housing” issue regarding those who are
refused treatment, are no longer functional, productive members of society, and
are dependent on the system for just about everything… And of course, who refuse
to Die “naturally” and in a cost effective manner for Big Brother.
Something tells me that down the road, with Budget concerns, future Recessions,
and any number of other issues that may arise, some of those “Vines” will need
to be cut for the “greater good” of Society, as opposed to being left to
“Withering” is starting to sound good the more I consider all of this… Scary!
Can you say, “Carousel”?
For those of you not of the 70’s, Google
“Logan's Run" and then
go rent it, if it’s even available.
Anyway, I need to get back to my “Vine”, earn the Beast some more Revenue and
wait for my fate with the rest of you.
