In the Obama care plan, anyone over 65 needs to meet with an appointed Dr. every 5 yrs to discuss dignity and dying decisions. They will make suggestions and recommendations for you.

This is for everyone, not just people who are sick

So for all of you 65 and over, get ready to be counseled on your "options" and have Uncle Sam make recommendations.

It used to be that American's life expectancy was supposed to IMPROVE with all the medical advances we have now and expected to have in the future.

Guess that will be HOPEful wishing now.

What an idiotic post. Patients of any age should be counseled about issues related to death and dying. Newsflash: We already do this. Patients are encouraged to have advance directives, regardless of age. We have been doing this for 8 years under Bush, and even before that. It's got nothing to do with Obama, or even with politics.

You have zero credibility when you politicize issues like this, in your desperation to attack Pres. Obama.

Section 1233 of H.R. 3200. The section, titled “Advanced Care Planning Consultation” requires all senior citizens to meet at least every 5 years with a doctor or nurse practitioner to discuss dying with dignity and their options.

It's in the bill! Why do you attack anyone who dares to question your Master?

Well people from all over the world come here when their health care system fails them, now where will they go? You are right and things are going to get very scary.

*****For all of you cheering this bill on, how many of you are advanced medical professionals? How many of you work in a hospital or have a private practice?

Ditto.

I think this asking patients about advance directives has been done since the Bush I administration. We did a seminar on this issue at my church, and many people said they did not want what happened to their parents to happen to them, e.g. keeping people alive when there really was no hope, etc.
