Comment by tonytran2015: The rules in China are that people from different address es of residence (houses, apartments, flats, …) should not mix (to halt the transmission of the Covid-19 disease).
A video posted online shows the family standing in front of a government building, with a man holding a “repentance” letter and leading the other three family members in reading it word by word: “Our family of four played poker in our house this afternoon, which is in violation of the order not to gather or play poker during this emergency period. We were wrong!” After reading the statement, they were made to stand there for a long time as punishment before being allowed to go home.
He said recently the U.S. should not go on providing some of the health-care treatments it now does for seniors.
“If you show up with cancer & you’re 95 years old, we should say … there’s no cure, we can’t do anything.”
Which prompted several others to comment.
“Looks like the Death Panels are going to be real after all,” pointed out J.G. Michael in a podcast, and the anonymous “Julia” said, “So Bloomberg wants literal death panels then.”
It was former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin who labeled part of Barack Obama’s health-care takeover plan a “death panel.”
Her spokeswoman pointed to sections in Obamacare that were to pay doctors to provide voluntary counseling about various end-of-lifedirections, and that provision later was removed.
Her original statement was: “Government health care will not reduce the cost; it will simply refuse to pay the cost. And who will suffer the
most when they ration health care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course. 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. Such a system is downright evil.”
