Description

"Let them die and decrease the surplus population" – Charles Dickens, A Christmas
Carol

Scrooge and Company torture health care

The Berkeley Federalist Society has assigned Torture Memo author John Yoo (yes, the
guy who defines severe pain amounting to torture as that occasioned by "serious
physical injury, such as death, organ failure, or serious impairment of body
functions") to make the case against what has come to be termed 'Obamacare',

Thursday, January 10 at 12:40 pm, Boalt Hall room 105

on the eve of the 11 year anniversary of Guantanamo.

Almost three years ago Truthout noted that while it may seem like a stretch to talk
about health care and torture in the same breath, there is a direct link between the
two issues. Indeed, it was a Medicare benefits statute and other health care
provisions that were used to form the basis for one of two August 2002 torture memos.

Despite the Justice Department's Office of Professional Responsibility finding that
professor Yoo and his boss, now federal district court judge Jay Bybee, were guilty
of "professional misconduct" warranting referral to their states' bar associations
to face disciplinary action including revocation of their law licenses, Berkeley Law
administrators continue to provide a soapbox for the rantings of an unrepentant
advocate for human suffering.

We will not let this go unchallenged.
