Yeah, they'll probably start doing what Obama has in mind for our older generation.
Deny them treatments and let them die off. Problem solved!
That already happens in UK hospitals to a certain degree. They have so-called end-of-life procedures that are supposed to be voluntary, but are sometimes applied by doctors without adequate consultation with the family, that emphasize painkillers over treatment for individuals who are in extremis. In other words, why use up medical resources when in the opinion of the doctor - whose performance is almost certainly measured in part by how cost-effective his/her case management is - those resources would be "wasted" because the doctor is "certain" the patient will soon die; instead, they drug the patient up high enough so he or she is essentially comatose when the end comes - never mind that in some cases the narcotics used as painkillers can themselves kill a person who, although close to the edge, would not have died but for the too-high dose of narcotics.
I believe there was a case just recently of a man who was in a coma, the doctors were "certain" he was going to die in any event - and had therefore not given any attention to whether he was even receiving basic care such as adequate water - and were prepared to drug him up and let him die until his family showed up and discovered that with some basic hydration he "came back from the dead." I may be getting some of the details wrong, but I believe I captured the essence of the story.
Given that the UK NHS is even so now facing such massive cost overruns, I've no doubt that consultation with the family will become a thing of the past and more and more people - and people who are further and further from the brink of death - will be given painkillers instead of treatment, and basically left to die of thirst or the side-effects of the painkillers.
As goes the UK NHS, so goes Obamacare. Sarah Palin most certainly was not lying - or confabulatin' - when she spoke out against the "death panels" provided for under Obamacare.
