Can You Pick The Biggest Lie In this Obamacare TV Commercial?

Here's the 30 second ad run by "Americans For Stable Quality Care" on TV this month.

Pick your favorite lie from the choices in this commercial in their claims "A" through "H."

" What does health Insurance Reform Mean for you?
A. It means you can't be denied coverage for a pre-existing condition or dropped if you get sick.
B. It means putting health care decisions in the hands of you and your doctor.
C. It means lower costs.
D. A cap on out of pocket expenses.
E. Tough new rules to cut waste and red tape.
F. And a focus on preventing illness before it strikes.
So what does health insurance reform really mean?
G. Quality...
H. Affordable care you can count on."

Although its nearly impossible to select the biggest lie, my choice is lie "B." The decisions will be taken from you and your doctor by Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, health policy advisor to Barack Obama and would be deceision maker for the new Obama health care system.

He blames the Hippocratic oath for the "Overuse of Medical care." He bemoans the fact that "Medical school education and post graduate education emphasize thoroughness."
He complains that physicians only think about their own patient's needs.

He wants a system that allocates medical costs and care, if any, according to age, with the priority on those age 15 to 40. If you are younger or getting older than 40, then good luck under the Obama plan.

His reasoning is that "...other things are rarely equal- whether to save one 20 year old, who might live another 60 years, if saved, or three 70 year olds, who could only live for another 10 Years each.

He says that his plan "appears" to discriminate against older people, but believes his belief is the correct one.

Drs. Kevorkian and Mengele would be very proud of Dr. Emanuel.
