The Republican Party and their GOP operatives have decided that the truth about health care will not be discussed but to continue on a path of lies, deceit, and scare the shit out of the elderly. To some extent it is working, but the game of voting has not begun in congress and people who want health care reform, across the spectrum are letting their voices be heard.
It is Republicans, like Mike Huckabee, who don't care about the truth, but about continuing to muddy up the waters, continue misinformation and just attempt to scare the public to death about health care reform. Remember, these are people who have SIDED with the insurance companies for no change. Again, if the insurance companies were on the up and up with the American public, we would not even be talking about this.
The 2008 Republican presidential candidate suggested during his radio show, "The Huckabee Report," on Thursday that, under President Obama's health care plan, Kennedy would have been told to "go home to take pain pills and die" during his last year of life.
"[I]t was President Obama himself who suggested that seniors who don't have as long to live might want to consider just taking a pain pill instead of getting an expensive operation to cure them," said Huckabee. "Yet when Sen. Kennedy was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer at 77, did he give up on life and go home to take pain pills and die? Of course not. He freely did what most of us would do. He choose an expensive operation and painful follow up treatments. He saw his work as vitally important and so he fought for every minute he could stay on this earth doing it. He would be a very fortunate man if his heroic last few months were what future generations remember him most for."
