I’ll throw in my two cents today on the “death panel” issue. Generally speaking once you politicize health care – you politicize health care.
Obviously there has to be mechanisms to monitor and control costs, and decisions must be made with cost in mind. I haven’t studied the “death panel” provision closely – apparently it was scrapped – but whatever you label a particular aspect of the bill, of course the government will be involved with end of life decisions, and those decisions will be affected by public budget concerns.
To deny that is misleading at best, and ignorant or disinenuous at worst.
