Robert Reich Reveals Brutal Health Care Truths; MSM Snores

By P.J. Gladnick

“We’re going to have to, if you’re very old, we’re not going to give you all that technology and all those drugs for the last couple of years of your life to keep you maybe going for another couple of months. It’s too expensive…so we’re going to let you die.”

-snip-

That quote did not come from a Republican. In fact it came from the very liberal former Labor Secretary Robert Reich who is now an economics adviser for Barack Obama.

In an audio recording from a September 2007 speech to an audience at the UC Berkeley, Reich reveals what he believes an honest liberal presidential candidate would say about health care. The “truth” about health care as Reich sees it is quite shocking and as you can hear on the recording, he is definitely not kidding. Here is a transcript of the brutal truth about health care as Robert Reich sees it:

I’ll actually give you a speech made up entirely, almost on the spur of the moment, of what a candidate for president would say if that candidate did not care about becoming president. In other words, this is what the truth is and a candidate will never say, but what a candidate should say if we were in the kind of democracy where citizens were honored in terms of their practice of citizenship and they were educated in terms of what the issues were and they could separate myth from reality in terms of what candidates would tell them:

“Thank you so much for coming this afternoon. I’m so glad to see you and I would like to be president. Let me tell you a few things on health care. Look, we have the only health care system in the world that is designed to avoid sick people. And that’s true and what I’m going to do is that I am going try to reorganize it to be more amenable to treating sick people but that means you, particularly you young people, particularly you young healthy people…you’re going to have to pay more.

“Thank you. And by the way, we’re going to have to, if you’re very old, we’re not going to give you all that technology and all those drugs for the last couple of years of your life to keep you maybe going for another couple of months. It’s too expensive…so we’re going to let you die.”

“Also I’m going to use the bargaining leverage of the federal government in terms of Medicare, Medicaid—we already have a lot of bargaining leverage—to force drug companies and insurance companies and medical suppliers to reduce their costs. What that means, less innovation and that means less new products and less new drugs on the market which means you are probably not going to live much longer than your parents. Thank you.”

And thank you, Robert Reich, for revealing the brutal truth about what liberals ultimately have in store for the public with their health care plan. Remember, this is Reich presenting what an honest liberal presidential candidate would say aloud if he weren’t worried about being elected.

This recording has already gone viral in the blogosphere but so far the mainstream media is ignoring it. I guess the MSM is currently much more obsessed over what Rush Limbaugh did not say about slavery than they are over what an Obama economics adviser actually did say about health care.

An oatmeal cookie! An oatmeal cookie to the first intrepid MSM reporter to ask Robert Reich about his 2007 quote! And, please, don’t let Reich try to wiggle out by claiming he was just joking. As you can hear, he was dead serious in presenting the brave new world of ObamaCare.

And all you old people awaiting the results of the health care bill in Congress…”we’re going to let you die.”

This *may* be true. But it could be a hoax.

What we’re seeing are still shots of Robert Reich along with a transcript and an audio. I don’t recognize that voice as belonging to Robert Reich.

Too bad there isn’t rolling footage of the event. That would be a lot more convincing to the discerning eye.
