Rep. Paul Broun: ObamaCare Will Leave “Mama” to Die in Agony in Bed

Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) is stepping up the death-panelism, with a new letter warning that President Obama’s socialized medicine scheme will kill your mama with a slow, agonizing death! Literally.

In a new letter sent out from the American Conservative Union, Broun issues the following warning:

And if these federal bureaucrats decide that your treatment is not “Government Approved,” then your doctor will be ordered to deny you treatment… or risk facing stiff penalties!

In other words: When mama falls and breaks her hip, she’ll just lie in her bed in pain until she dies with pneumonia because her needed surgery is not cost efficient.

(Emphasis in the original.)

Broun spokeperson Jessica Morris confirmed that Broun did help write an ACU letter, though she herself had not seen it. When presented with this excerpt, she did not have any further comment on its contents.

Check out an excerpted page from the letter, after the jump.

Dr. Paul Broun, M.D.

United States Congressman (R-GA)

My fellow American,

As a Congressman and as a concerned doctor, I am writing today to warn you:

Your health care is in serious danger.

Barack Obama managed to sneak a provision into his massive “stimulus” bill that is going to ration your health care and lead us down the path of socialized medicine.

My friends at the American Conservative Union (ACU) are trying to rally public opinion to stop rationed health care, so please send them your “DON’T RATION MY HEALTH CARE!” Survey today…

…or the next thing you know, your doctor may be banned from giving you or your loved ones the life-saving care they need!

Obama has created a new $2 billion federal bureaucracy — a national health care rationing board — that will decide if the medical care you need is “cost efficient.”

And if these federal bureaucrats decide that your treatment is not “Government Approved,” then your doctor will be ordered to deny you treatment… or risk facing stiff penalties!

Sadly, it’s senior citizens who will be hit hardest by Obama’s new plan.

Obama and his advisors are modeling this rationing board after European systems that use age and life-expectancy as key factors in deciding the “cost efficiency” of a procedure.

In other words: When mama falls and breaks her hip, she’lljust lie in her bed in pain until she dies with pneumonia because her needed surgery is not cost efficient.

As a medical Doctor, I find this outrageous and unacceptable!
