    I Don’t Care, But We All Should

    I Don’t Care, But We All Should

    The Obama administration has instituted, via regulations, the end of life counseling which was taken out of the Obamacare legislation after many people objected to the government paying for such services.

    As reported in The New York Times, the Obama administration took steps to conceal the change from the public.

    Substantively, I don’t care.  I find nothing wrong with end of life counseling, and when my mother was terminally ill I was glad to have her instructions in writing.  Whether the government should be involved is a different matter, so I do not criticize those who want government to stay completely out of such decisions, even if only funding is involved.

    Procedurally, we all should care.  This is a textbook example of what I have been warning.  Obamacare simply is the infrastructure.  The details and the demons will be worked out in regulations.

    The fact that such a controversial change was kept quiet for so long, and that the Obama administration took steps to keep it quiet, is most troublesome of all.

    Defunding is the only option at this point, because the regulators cannot be trusted.

    donttread, I call 'em like I see 'em. Come on, where WERE the christians when Texas and Arizona were killing poor people? Not a peep out of any of the same people who set up a christian carnival outside of that nursing home.

    The ONLY difference that I ever saw between that one and the (ongoing) killing in Texas and Arizona was the money. Nothing else. Well, maybe another difference: Texas and Arizona are run by Republicans, and the christian 11th commandment is never to contradict a Republican about anything.
