What will happen to people of "special needs" under a government run health care system?
Everybody knows Sarah Palin is the mother of a child "Trig" with special needs. She along with many other parents of special needs children have a very personal stake in this government health care take over debate. The other day she commented on Twitter about it. These are some of her comments.
Sarah Palin"The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama's 'death panel' so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their 'level of productivity in society,' whether they are worthy of health care."
I urge people to read what Palin wrote in it's entirety. What she said hasn't been answered by Obama, Pelosi, Reid and their government take over supporters. What does happen to people who are psychical or mentally disabled and not able to "contribute to society"? Under a government run health care system, it will come down to a "quality of life" issue. Seniors aren't the only ones who should be very concerned about a government take over of health care. Parents of special need children should as well. Mike Sola and his son with special needs were escorted out of Representative John Dingell's Town Hall last Thursday for asking a precise question. He and his son were expelled from the Town Hall, because he asked Congressman Dingell "why his son Scott, who has cerebral palsy, would not be covered under health insurance reform legislation". His question was never answered, go figure. Since the event, Mr. Sola claimed that he was visited by the union goon squad. I respect Mr. Sola for standing up as an American. Pelosi may think otherwise , I call him and others like him "patriots".
