Dan Reihl nails it.

Cartoon: by Ramirez.

H/t Tabatha Hale.

For those of you who are unaware of the background, Harry Reid's wife and daughter were involved in a car accident the result being that his wife has a broken neck and back and is apparently in a fairly serious condition.

In view of the projected "death panels" that are apparently going to be the case for 'ordinary Americans' in their advancing years and requiring full on care, Dan Reihl has put up the following post. I was initially shocked at the callousness however in retrospect it is really a great analogy for what happens to the 'non-elite' under the proposed socialism of medicine:

Isn't It Time To Euthanize Reid's Wife?

I'm not sure I quite understand this, given that cost is so important as a burden to taxpayers when it comes to health care. If Democrats want so badly to abort babies because of it, why are we bothering with someone who has a broken neck and back at 69? It sounds to me like she's pretty well used up and has probably been living off the taxpayers for plenty of years to begin with. Aren't we at least going to get a vote on it? .....

I realize her crook of a husband and his pals in Congress have excluded themselves from the mess they're going to compel everyone else to join, but we're still paying the bills, are we not? I don't see that she's worth it at this point, frankly. I can't recall her ever doing anything for me.

Come on, Harry - do your civic duty. The nation's broke and counting on you guy. Pull the plug and get back to work. And don't bill us for a full day today, either. This is no time to be sloughing off. Air freight her home, you can bury her during recess on your own time and dime. Or are you going to bill us for that, too? .....

I doubt that when these people come up with these 'good ideas' that they think of them from the perspective of how they would affect them if they were from the 'great unwashed,' as they seem to view the populace.

This is a reminder to Harry and his crowd of what they are doing in the only sort of terms they are likely to understand. That is of course if they can actually relate to the electorate in any sort of inclusive terms.

In Australia a new centenarian gets a congratulatory message from the Queen. In America under Obamacare, they will spark a Senate inquiry into just how it was allowed to happen.

I fully understand the nature of the post and realise that the left are self righteously angry. I think they should examine their consciences with regard to the stuff they have published or agreed with that was vicious, and appalling, and ask themselves if this is really over the top.

I believe that under the circumstances it comes under my definition of 'fair comment' and while I have some sympathy for the lady, I feel Reid deserves none.
