"It makes no sense at all"

Unless killing people is what you want to do.

There DOES seem to be a concerted effort to kill off the old
and the poverty stricken in this country...

How did Ayn Rand (that rightwing literary darling [and blatant sociopath]) call them?

The Takers? People no longer useful in the great socioeconomic machine?

What we are seeing is rightwing dispassionate ideology come full circle to
its logical and heartless conclusion.

"Let the Takers die, and the poor starve! More for the rich! More for me!"

How utterly disgusting, but predictable...

Vote for Republicans so they can kill your grandmother. This is the Amerika the right wing wants.

BLOTUS, who is just short of being committed to a long-term care facility himself is now actively TRYING to kill old people in nursing homes. He'll point to the savings in SS and Medicare payouts and claim this was is plan to save SS from bankruptcy.

Oh, and is it any wonder Hair Furor has seen considerable softening in his support from older Americans. HE'S ACTIVELY TRYING TO KILL YOU!

"Death panels" were an early experiment with Republican projection.

2500 deaths per day x 365 days per year = 912,000 deaths

And we only have about 2% of us infected?
