    It’s always great to hear liberals speak when they think no one is listening.

    Rep. Paul Tonko is a freshman Democrat from Albany, NY. He’s a typical non-descript eastern machine politician whose a robot for Obama and Pelosi and doesn’t have too many original thoughts. Earlier this week one of his top aides was flying to Washington from the district. She was accompanied by what appeared to be a special interest Washington DC lobbyist, who probably came to Albany to attend some type of big money golf, gambling, and cigars fundraiser for Tonko.

    Anyway, unbeknownst to them, a hero of the conservative movement sat quietly behind them. It was impossible to avoid listening to their boisterous conversation, and Tonko’s aide didn’t disappoint.

    Naturally, most of the banter dealt with the health care bill, and here are a few of the gems:

    The two were talking about whether Tonko would even be given time to read the bill.

    She told the lobbyist, “well he pays me to read it for him”.

    “[The] costliest part [of the Obama healthcare bill] will be the physician’s rate cut,” she said. Lots of political capital is going to be spent to get that through.

    And, for the crowning glory, the aide feels that “probably the best part of the bill is the increase in Hospice care which will solve the prolonging of life issue.”

    This seems to prove the argument that the Obama bureaucrats will eventually decide who lives and who dies.

    Remember, the Democrats have already put in their legislation a requirement for senior citizens to, every five years, learn how to die with dignity.

    Also remember that hospice care is for the already terminally ill. So how will increasing hospice care funding solve “prolonging of life issues” unless the government is going to start putting people who are not terminally ill into hospice after they’ve had their mandatory “how to kill yourself” training.

    Isn’t “hope and change” wonderful?
    Soylent Green anyone?

    I wonder if they'll defend the government's "choice" to dispose of them, because, after all - who wants to punish the government by letting some old idiot live too long?
