LaRouche Was Right:
Obama `Health Care' Is
Genocide for Everybody

April 9, 2010 (EIRNS)—As Lyndon LaRouche initially said, it's not just Medicare and seniors that are targetted under Obama's Nazi death-care scheme.

In a column in today's Wall Street Journal, former New York Lt. Governor Betsy McCaughey points out that under the new health-care law, nearly everyone is required to enroll in a "qualified plan;" and then, the law says that these plans can only pay doctors who follow whatever guidelines the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) imposes to improve health-care "quality." This, McCaughey argues, "covers everything in medicine;" she adds that, "Never before has the Federal government dictated how doctors treat privately insured patients," except in certain narrowly-specified areas.

The crucial—and accurate—point she makes, is that the Obama bill imposes Federal "quality" (read "comparative effective research," statistically-based "outcomes," etc.) on virtually all medical care provided to all patients.

Secondarily, McCaughey argues that, were the U.S. Supreme Court to be consistent with its previous rulings in assisted suicide and abortion cases, it would overturn such Federal interference in "privacy" and into the doctor-patient relationship.

Rather than the legalistic precedent referred to by McCaughey, the outcome will be determined by the ongoing mass strike.
