WRONG AGAIN STUPID! Section 123 establishes a Health Benefits Advisory Committee that makes recommendations on what types of health insurance coverage will be defined as basic, enhanced or premium. The committee will be chaired by the surgeon general, with members appointed by the president, the comptroller general, and representatives of federal agencies. This committee makes recommendations on insurance regulations, so in that sense it does set standards for benefits. But it does not make decisions about treatments for individuals.
The real death panels were in the insurance company backrooms otherwise known as the underwriting department who's pencil pushers and bean counters decided whether or not to pay for treatments based on their profit margins.
You're an idiot DB; you always have been and always will be!

Sean Hannity is very, very sad. See, the real problem with the whole sordid Cliven Bundy affair is that Democrats will use his er, musings, about African Americans to paint Republicans with a broad brush, and accuse them and the whole conservative movement of being fundamentally racist. Hannity—after being the Number 1 fan of Mr. Bundy's heroic quest to avoid paying what he owed for using our land—now condemns the deadbeat rancher's racism, claiming, "Every conservative that I know does not support racism, period!"

Except, of course, for his friend, Ted Nugent. And neither is Hannity familiar with Phil Robertson, even though he supported Robertson on the air after the Duck Dynasty star essentially denied that there was racism in the Jim Crow South. In the words of the great philosopher George Walker Bush (this one never gets old): "Fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again." I think it's pretty obvious who Sean Hannity thinks are fools: the American people.

Seriously, though, let's talk about Republican racism. We can even just stick to the last couple of years. Yes, yes, we know that Republicans just hated Bundy's racist remarks. Except for the ones who have been slow to say so. Of course, when Bundy said that black Americans might have been better off under slavery, he was merely echoing the wisdom that Republicans from Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) to Michele Bachmann to Rick Santorum to Pat Buchanan (just to name a few), have also shared. At some point, it's not a bug, it's a feature of conservatism.

What was the point of Obama making any comment on it?

Oh that's right, to point out Americans are still racist.

Anyone heard any news about the Afghan War recently? Are we still fighting a war? Because it sure seems like no one remembers it.

Meanwhile, 40 vets died here in the U.S. waiting for a VA appointment.

The Filipinos, one of our longstanding allies, are burning Obama effigies. The U.S. signed a deal giving our military greater access to Philippine bases. Even our allies don't want to help us.

They know this president is weak and poses no threat to our mutual enemies on the world stage too.

Something's gone very wrong in a very short amount of time with our priorities and, thus, our national security.

Good morning.

He never said they glued themselves to Bundy's racist remarks.
You are either incapable of reading or a liar.
You know damn well you & your right whiner buddies we all backing Bundy's defiance of the BLM.
Now you try to deny it.
Reid apologized for his comment and you can't find another instance of racism from Reid. Personally, I am not a Harry Reid fan but not because he made a poor choice of words while giving Obama a compliment.
The reading comprehension is your issue. From Sonic's comment....

""People that, for the right reasons, saw this case as government overreach now are branded because of the ignorant, racist, repugnant, despicable comments of Cliven Bundy,"

You, yourself is attempting to do this.

I'm a former, FORMER Democrat/Union voter. It is criminal what this Washington Administration has gotten away thanks to the media and the low information types who don't care as long as the unsustainable promises and high taxation keep coming. They are both ignorant and self destructive.

I was in a CVS drug store the other day and some young 20 something was hassling the Clerk LOUDLY about the TAXES on her receipt. He explained that Food items and Candy are TAXED at different rates now. She was miffed. I was on another register and perfect timing. When I went outside I saw an "Obama!!" bumper-sticker on her car. SHE VOTED for these ridiculous taxes herself.

How is her life better since Obama was first elected? We are told people love Obama. We are told people love the Democrats. We are told people love Gullible Warming. We are told people love illegal immigration.

When are we going to stop believing what we are told? When will the low informed voters realize like minorities, they are being duped? Or are they just sitting back and waiting for the rest of the redistribution of wealth to kick in?

Hell Freezes Over: Paul Krugman, Bill Kristol Agree That Cliven Bundy’s A Law-Breaking Jerk
Krugman was disappointed that Bundy’s racist musings distracted from his larger anti-government message.“I think the Cliven Bundy thing actually is awful, because we should be talking about the message, not the man,” he explained.“Which is really a terrible message, which is you have the right to use other people’s property — namely, federal grazing land — for free.”
“Freedom is the right to not pay for the damage you do,” Krugman bemoaned.“It’s really a horrifying thing he was ever made a hero even before these comments came out.”
“I am horrified to agree with Paul Krugman,” Kristol joked.“But The Weekly Standard, ten days ago, said to conservatives,‘Don’t praise Cliven Bundy, he’s breaking the law, he seems to be inciting people even to use violence against federal law enforcement officials. If you want to change the law, change the law.’”
“So on that, we agree,” Kristol noted.“Which of us will pay more of a price for this, is the question?”
“Dunno,” Krugman replied.“Probably you.”
“Probably me,” Kristol admitted.

and would that be the same Harry Reid that has a long, long history of supporting the Voting Rights Act, affirmative action, civil-rights expansions, a view of the Constitution that endorses a broad interpretation of the equal-protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment—and federal judges who back all those things?
so now let's hear about all the Republicans who've done the same.
Focus: Everyone agreed he was breaking the law.

For our nation, there is no denying the truth that slavery is a blight on our history and that racism, despite all the progress, still exists today. For my party, there is no escaping the reality that the party of Lincoln has not always carried the mantle of Lincoln.

Recognizing and confronting our history is important. Transcending our history is essential.
