Obama said on April 13th this was his goal. This is the Obama Death Panel.

So what can the next generation, retiring a decade from now, count on? The Obama health law puts those decision in the hands of an unelected board called the Independent Payment Advisory Board, a cost-cutting panel.
The board is a radical departure from Medicare as we’ve known it. Congress cedes nearly all control of Medicare spending on the rationale that budgeting decisions should be shielded from outraged seniors and political pressures.
On April 13, the president reiterated that the board would decide what care is “unnecessary” for seniors, and that he would like to see IPAB’s unprecedented powers increased.
