Near Accidental Harvesting of Organs from Not Quite Dead Patient a View into Obamacare?

Posted by PITHOCRATES - July 13th, 2013

Week in Review

President Obama has delayed the employer mandate of Obamacare.  As there was so much confusion in implementing Obamacare that despite having 3 years to put this massive bureaucracy into motion the government is still not ready.  Or it could be because of the immense unpopularity of the program that they want to push back some of the more unpleasant parts of it to after the 2014 midterm elections.  So Democrats up for reelection don’t have to face an angry electorate while campaigning.  Like so many did in the 2010 midterm elections.  And lost.

The Obama administration is beefing up the IRS to enforce Obamacare.  Expanding their reach into our private lives.  And into our medical records.  To see who qualifies for a subsidy.  And who is not paying their fair share.  Who, when identified, they will descend upon them with all the joy and pleasure of an IRS rectal exam.  I mean, audit.

The real scary part of all this is that the agency now responsible for our very health is the one that recently persecuted some Americans for their political beliefs.  The vast majority of the policy-makers at the IRS donated to President Obama’s reelection campaign.  Which makes the persecution of Tea Party groups and their donors the more frightening.  For where will it end?  This abuse of federal power (see Patient awoke to doctors mistakenly preparing to remove her organs by Eric Pfeiffer posted 7/9/2013 on Yahoo! News)?

The Post-Standard reports that in October 2009, Colleen S. Burns was taken to the emergency room at St. Joseph’s Hospital Center, suffering from a drug overdose. Although a nurse told doctors that Burns was recovering from her overdose, those same doctors pronounced her dead.

A call was placed to her family informing them that Burns had passed away, and the family subsequently agreed to have her removed from life support and gave the hospital clearance to harvest her organs.

But Burns was not dead. In fact, a number of signs clearly pointed to her being alive. When a nurse performed a mandatory reflex test on Burns, her toes curled downward. She appeared to be breathing independently of a hospital respirator, and her lips and tongue were said to have moved moments before doctors prepared to remove her organs.

Nonetheless, the nurse then followed instructions to give Burns a powerful sedative, a seemingly unnecessary move if the patient were actually dead.

Thankfully, Burns awoke moments before doctors were going to cut her open to remove the organs from her presumed-dead body.

Imagine the future world of Obamacare.  With an expanded IRS acting like the secret police.  And a state official at each hospital responsible for the enforcement of Obamacare policies.  Big Brother, if you will.  Making sure everyone is Obamacare obedient.  And reporting back to their superiors in Washington of problem personnel.  This official having direct access to the standardized digital medical records of every patient.  Now imagine a patient near death who is either a political enemy of the state.  Like the Tea Party and their donors were to the IRS.  Or someone that their Obamacare computer programming flags as a potential match to someone in the inner party in need of an organ transplant.  And they unexpectedly take a turn for the worse and die.

That will never happen, some will say.  Those who believe government is an instrument of good.  And maybe this scenario will never happen.  But it could happen.  That’s the scary part.  Because the pieces are all there now.  All it will take is someone to make it happen.

In the movie V for Vendetta V said, “People shouldn’t be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.”  The United States became a nation based on that principle.  The U.S. Constitution enshrines that principle.  But things have changed since the Founding.  And people are now afraid of their government.  And the IRS.  Just ask those Tea Party groups.  And their donors.  They can tell you a thing or two about abuses of federal power.  And now these people are going to be in charge of our health care.  Where they can do anything they want to us.  Force us to pay a higher premium.  Make us wait a longer time for treatment.  Even deny us treatment.  Giving us a pill to take instead to manage our pain until we die.  Or they could even hasten our deaths.  To cut costs.  And to, perhaps, harvest our organs.  For someone more important in the inner party.  All it will take is someone to make it happen.  Just as someone chose to make that IRS persecution of political enemies happen.
