Dr. Kevorkian will see you now

Dear Editor,

Dr. Kevorkian rigged up a device that would end the life of a person that wanted to end their life. The patient requested the procedure, and was the one who pulled the trigger. Sarah Palin was criticized severely for saying that there were death panels in Obamacare. There are many who are saying that Obamacare will not work without death panels. The difference between Dr. Obama and Dr. Kevorkian is Dr. Obama will pull the trigger for you, ready or not. You say that is ridiculous, that can’t happen in America. 

What about 10-year-old Sarah Murnaghan, who needed a lung transplant. The law said that she must be 12 years old to get an adult lung. Will you need an attorney and a judge and a doctor to get health care? There is no doubt that a know-all-see-all bureaucrat in their exalted position will make the ultimate decision. Sen. Reid said in an interview, “What we’ve done with Obamacare is have a step in the right direction, but we’re far from having something that’s going to work forever.” When then asked by panelist Steve Sebelius whether he meant ultimately the country would have to have a health care system that abandoned insurance as a means of accessing it, Reid said, “Yes, yes. Absolutely, yes.” 

I have said that the Democrat game plan is to have a single payer system. If you think that health care is expensive now, just hide and watch. Remember that the IRS is in charge, and if you like dealing with those folks, then you will be in paradise. Have you noticed that bureaucrats rarely accept responsibility for anything? President Truman said the buck stops here. The crowd that we have in Washington now keeps the buck floating until they get pinned down, then they run to the constitution. They hate the constitution, saying that it is flawed and out of date, but seem to love the fifth amendment, when they paint themselves into a corner. Have you ever known so many folks that are supposedly graduates of prestigious colleges, that are either lying, or are incompetent?

Dr. Thomas Sowell: “It is amazing that people who think we cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication somehow think we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, medication and a government bureaucracy to administer it. It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong.”

Richard Feuilly,

  • Letters to the Editor: Showing respect

    Dear Editor, My sister Robbie Benton’s funeral was Friday afternoon at White’s Funeral Home. The gravesite was outside of Mineral Wells. The respect shown by the good folks of Parker County and the surrounding area was overwhelming. I would say at least 90 percent of drivers pulled over in respect of the loss of life.

    Dear Editor,

    I have been intrigued about few human rights issues in foreign countries, but look at what exists in the United States.

  • Letters to the Editor: Protecting Medicare Advantage

    As one of over 14 million Americans who rely on a Medicare Advantage policy for my medical needs, I know it is crucial for Washington to protect the Advantage program’s budget. The Affordable Care Act already slashed $200 billion from the program. It would be a mistake to dismantle a program that produces better healthcare results than regular Medicare, while often costing seniors much less in the process.

  • Letters To The Editor: Kelly response

    In a recent column, William Kelly stated his opposition to abortion and asked the question, “What do you think?” Well, I think we should all publically express our gratitude to CVS for their announced plan to stop selling tobacco products.

  • Letters To The Editor: Entitlement mentality

    Traffic law violations seem to be changing. During the 25 years I spent driving in Parker and Tarrant counties, it was usually the young men and women in small sporty cars that ran the red lights, stop and yield signs and regularly grossly exceeded the posted speed limits.

  • Letters to the Editor: Stop the bailout

    Dear Editor, The administration and congress knew that ObamaCare would fail but have had a plan all along to bail out the private insurance companies that supported the law with taxpayer money. Of course, this plan was kept hidden from American citizens that are already burdened by taxes. Congress should do everything it can to stop this disastrous bill.
