Under Barack Obama, America is facing an explosion of the elderly poor. The facts are in, the strategy revealed. If Barack Obama and the Democrats win the upcoming election, an ugly era of population engineering, the steady elimination of our elderly through Obamacare will lead to a crisis in humanity. In addition to Social Security, America’s retirees rely on varied combinations of their savings, investments, company pensions, and Medicare for their existence, all of which are targets of Obama’s war on the elderly.

During a 2008 televised political debate candidate Barack Obama was asked were he to become President, where would he first cut spending. Obama stalled and stammered hoping the clock would run out so he could avoid answering. The debate moderator again demanded an answer. Seconds before the buzzer sounded, a reluctant Obama answered, “Medicare.” Sounding along with that buzzer was a death knell for American seniors. Obama had set his sights on America’s greatest generation and those following swiftly on their heels. At a 2010 House Retreat, when asked directly, Obama responded to now Republican Vice-Presidential nominee Paul Ryan, that his answer to fixing Medicare is Obamacare. During a CBS 60 Minutes interview, citing numbers from the Congressional Budget Office, Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney pointed out that Obama’s destruction of Medicare is well underway, “There’s only one president that I know of in history that robbed Medicare — $716 billion to pay for a new risky program of his own that we call Obamacare.”

Built-in delays put off the Obamacare nightmare until after the election. Denying control of medical decisions normally made by patients, their families and doctors, Obamacare outsources your personal decisions to a bloated government bureaucracy run by unelected, leftist ideologues. Extensive cuts to senior care are in the offing with fill-in-the-blank clauses purposely left open to be completed at the discretion of those who control Obamacare. On CBS 60 Minutes, Paul Ryan stated he has a personal reason to fight for seniors to remain on Medicare as it now exists. “My mom is a Medicare senior in Florida. Our point is we need to preserve their benefits, because government made promises to them that they’ve organized their retirements around. In order to make sure we can do that, you must reform it for those of us who are younger.” Ryan stresses that everyone over the age of 55 will keep Medicare as it now exists for the rest of their lives. Proposed is the option for those under 55 to choose Medicare or new alternatives.

America’s seniors are not Obama’s constituency. A majority do not vote for him. Obama’s radical positions on faith, economic irresponsibility, the Constitution, the rule of law, basic freedoms, medical care, increased taxation, spiraling national debt and deficit, abortions, sterilizations, traditional marriage among other of his affronts to their patriotic sensibilities are at odds with America’s most revered generation. There is an almost palpable resentment from Obama of American seniors who worked, fought, and sacrificed to build this country. It was their tax dollars, like generations before them that built the roads, the bridges and America’s infrastructure. That they rejected welfare and favored hard work appears to be an aberration to Obama — values foreign to his ideology. Obama’s resounding message to America’s seniors is that you will be penalized for your longevity, your hard work and frugal savings.

Bluntly, it is a simple strategy, less medical care coupled with less money means less elderly. What younger Americans cannot see coming is that under Obamacare, reduced medical care with limited access to fewer doctors will force parents and grandparents to rely heavily on younger generations for their physical needs and financial support.
