Withholding Medical Care from the Irreversibly Ill

Aren't the Democrats in Washington the ones screaming whenever seniors' benefits are "threatened"? So why are White House advisers calling for a reduction (and sometimes cessation) of health benefits to older folks?

Also, why are they calling for a slow-down on medical innovation?

And why are they saying that Americans expect too much--like private hospital rooms, conveniently located doctors' offices, and relatively attractive waiting rooms?

This 2-page article, by someone who has read the bills being proposed, is an eye-opening read.
