MI hospice no longer taking patients due to Obamacare

It has a name: senicide. It is the systematic killing of the elderly — and, thus, non-productive — members of a tribe by banishing them to the wilderness or setting them adrift on an ice floe.

Even though the practice really existed among indigenous peoples, incidents of it were rare except in times of famine.

Until now. Michigan Fox affiliate WXMI reports on a hospice that is no longer accepting patients due to Obamacare. These terminally ill people will simply have to do their dying elsewhere.
