Wichita activist Wendy Aylworth has taken her cause, Morticians for National Health Care, to Washington. This group, a tongue-in-cheek preview of the future Wendy believes we face under ObamaCare, seeks to inject a little humor and satire into the debate over health care reform.
(I know, there aren’t death panels mentioned in the current health care bills working their way through Congress. The President also says that care isn’t going to be rationed. But there’s simply no way the cuts in Medicare spending can be accomplished without restricting care to seniors, and that means some will die sooner than they would have otherwise. The Obama administration is proposing big cuts in reimbursement rates to specialists, which will have the effect of making less care available to seniors. The proposed increase in reimbursement rates for primary care physicians may make up some of the difference.)
Wendy — as the grim reaper — delivered a talk at a recent tea party event in Wichita. You can view the video of that event by clicking on Morticians for National Health Care.
