Obama Administration Admits Obamacare Will Lead to Rationing

From John Hawkins at Right Wing News:

Back when Obama was trying to convince Congress to destroy America’s health care system in the name of expanding government and giving Democrats more power, his administration claimed that there would be no rationing under the program:

“No one here is talking about rationing,” said Peter Orszag, director of the White House Office for Management and Budget. “What we are talking about, look at the source of that 30 percent or so in potential efficiency gains in the health system are from unnecessary procedures, unnecessary days in hospital, unnecessary applications of technology and what have you.”

But now that they’ve forced it through, their tune has changed quite a bit:

President Barack Obama’s nominee to head the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which runs Medicare, is a strong supporter of the government-run health care system in Britain, who said in a 2009 interview about Comparative Effectiveness Research: “The decision is not whether or not we will ration care–the decision is whether we will ration with our eyes open.”

…In choosing Berwick, the Obama administration is implicitly admitting that the health care law passed by the Democrats in March will lead to the rationing of health care, said Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) in a May 19 press release.

I’m actually shocked and astonished at this – that the administration would openly admit this, I mean.

Some Republicans are already running for office in November by promising to defund and repeal Obamacare. I’ll vote for them …
