U.S. Official Touts Medicare Living Wills


Encouraging new Medicare participants to write living wills could end up saving the government large amounts of money, Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt said Monday. ~( Yea by killing you off!)~

"It may be that we could build into Medicare a means by which there was a consultation as part of the Medicare physical where that decision could be discussed and potentially made and ... it would not just save families anguish but would likely save the system a remarkable amount of money, allowing that money to be spent in other ways and in other places," Leavitt said.

Leavitt did not specify how living wills would save the government money. But presumably, if such a proposal is put in place, the government would not spend money keeping alive terminal patients who had filled out living wills rejecting life-prolonging medical care.

That means NO FOOD AND WATER FOR YOU! I can see it now, Cancer will now longer be considered a treatables disease, it will be reverted back to a Death sentence!

Medicare serves about 42 million senior citizens and disabled people. The government is projected to spend $345 billion on the program during the next fiscal year.
~I am one of those! If they come knockin at my Door, they can Kiss where the sun don't shine! NO GOV'T IN MY LIFE THANX!~ Can you tell Im sarcastic Today?

What we need to do NOW is work on getting the words and meanings changed. Life Support should NOT include Food and Water!
