Thousands of Alabama nursing home patients about to be thrown to the street

because of massive Medicaid cuts in the republican budget, and that's just the beginning. Hospitals will suffer, emergency rooms will become overcrowded, doctors will leave the state, and who knows how many will die as a result of this. Republican death panels are here!!

3. Personally, I'd move the people into Represenatative Wren's office

hospital beds, wheel chairs and all. And I'd be sure to have a few news cameras there to report on it.

5. Now there's an idea--

if the sick/elderly people consented to be part of a demonstration, it would be very powerful.

6. Where are the physicians' voices in all of this?

i never have understood why doctors and the AMA go along with a corrupt bureaucracy that is systematically destroying our health care system.

There IS enough money in this country if we can pay trillions to the Defense Department and secret agencies for surveillance. Being out of money is the Big Lie.

7. Don't go looking to our 'doctors' for support or advocacy.

Seriously.

10. I worked along side some awesome doctors and surgeons

and believe that there are good people in every profession. I also believe that what we all have to do is inspire ALL good people with a conscience everywhere, in all walks of life, to start standing up for the common good.

There might even be a couple of old style Republicans somewhere with a conscience--who knows?

8. "We're going to have blood on our hands."

Rep. Patricia Todd, D-Birmingham; "We're going to have blood on our hands," Todd told House members Tuesday night. She called the proposed budget "the most un-Christian document I have ever seen.

9. How awfully nice

(dripping with sarcasm). The budget is un-Christian. We can't let those elderly/disabled people suffer. Let's euthanize them -- like we do with sick animals. SARCASM, unless you didn't get it.

I've said this before and the proposed budget cuts prove my point again, Republican plan is this: get sick, die quick. They have no time or money to spend on the "useless eaters" (that's what Hitler called them).

DAMN THIS KIND OF THINKING PISSES ME OFF..

13. It is brutal and we might as well go back to the

days of Dickens

where the Rich got richer and the poor died in the millions

12. The Republicans play book and if people want this so be it

but it won't save money
It will cost them money in the long run

the children and old people should have their faces placed all over who have died
from the Republican agenda
