You know, the concept of "free speech" was never meant to apply to bold-face lies such as "death panels" garbage spewed by the right.

The stupid get a pass for what lies they may say. Liars, especially paid liars, don't.

End of life counceling IS a death panel, and it's IN the bill...along with a lot of other hidden B.S. You're right, the stupid should have to pay for these ridiculous costs. Ante up.

They are the mouth piece of the left and dont give a crap about senior issues that may conflict with their left leaning liberal mindset. Thats why I am no longer a member and others should cancel their membership also. We need a real organization that cares more about senior issues than political banter.

You shouldn't have the right to vote or speak in public. I'd like to believe that you're not stupid enough to believe the "death panel" bullshit but you apparently are.

End of life counseling is exactly that - counseling. The "death panel" bullshit you eagerly swallow is a lie. It's portrayed as the government deciding the issue for you. That isn't what end of life counseling is, you fucking moron.

And you call yourself "patriot" ... another dickless redneck who never served but flies that flag every 4th. Thank god you protected our liberties, sitting there at the bar sucking down cheap beer.

You're right! The Obama administration has paid Acorn and other leftist groups to push the massive Obama care boondoggle. They're the ones with the professionally made signs and banners that you see at all the town hall meetings. Despicable!

Ever hear of "29 Palms"? Hottest place I've ever been, and I can rarely be found in a bar. I'm not here to hurt your feelings, or to educate you. You can call it what you want, I've read it...it's a death panel. There's also provisions funding farmers markets and jungle gyms. You can't provide the same services to 50 million more people and not have it cost one hell of alot more than it's costing now, unless you cut services. Even a moron should be able to understand that.

Have one of your classmates read it to you. The current OR the proposed healthcare plan doesn't cover your pre-existing condition. I should have said even a moron "like you". I'll try and "dum it down" for you next time.

Get a copy of the bills from congress and read them. Educate yourselves before you pass judgment on others. Rahm Emanuels brother Dr Ezekiel Emanuel has written some very compelling articles for the lancet that you should read also. In the Lancet last January, Dr. Emanuel said age was one of several factors that could be considered in deciding who receives scarce organs or vaccines. "Unlike allocation by sex or race, allocation by age is not invidious discrimination," he wrote. "Every person lives through different life stages."
The problem with Topix is the uneducated buffoons that would rather call others names than research the truth. Solutions R Us is a complete and absolute MORON.

Death panels weren't in health care plan but Senate drops them anyway. Washington insiders believe the average US citizen does not care and they are incapable of discerning the truth.
Do those Democratic senators even realize how silly their comments sound.
We never had ďdeath panelsĒ in the plan. Those, such as Sarah Palin, who say we did are liars trying to derail our compassionate plan to get health insurance for all Americans. This is all part of a right wing conspiracy to deny health insurance to the poor. Itís all a lie! There are no death panels! But we just took a vote to eliminate them from the plan.
How can you eliminate something that wasnít there in the first place?
The truth is that it really was part of the plan. Since the senators didnít read the bill they assumed no one would. They once again showed their arrogance and underestimated the American people who protested in such numbers and with such vigor that the Senate had no choice but to delete that part of the bill. Score one big one for the people!
As the truths about this horrible plan keep coming to light, more and more Americans will stand in opposition. My faith in the people of this country has been enhanced. We are not going to be forcefully marched into socialism.

The so-called "Death Panels" - or counseling on setting up Living Wills - already exists. Those Republicans now decrying them voted for them in 2003 in a Bush sponsored bill. They were even around before that - All the current proposal does is require insurance companies to pay the fee the Doctor charges for these VOLUNTARY sessions........ some do pay now.
Those saying otherwise sound like the idiots telling Congress to keep the government out of Medicare.......

The Senators removed the requirement that insurance pay for the counseling. The counseling already exists, millions of people have Living Wills and standing orders for end-of-life care - like whether or not to be kept alive as a vegetable on feeding tubes. These are NOT Death Panels - they are merely counseling sessions which millions of seniors already set up voluntarily with their doctors - they just have to pay for themselves, and the proposal was to have them covered by insurance.

The AARP is NOT a liberal organization, nor an Obama mouthpiece. They have NOT even endorsed the proposed healthcare reform bills.

The liberal organization for seniors is the Alliance for Retired Americans, formed in part because of the AARP's ties to big business and other conservative groups.

Just because the AARP is not to the right of Attila the Hun (like Rush and Beck are) does NOT make them liberal, they are more middle-of-the-road. Of course that does put them to the left of the wing nuts spreading lies about the health care proposals. But still to the right of Alliance for Retired Americans, MoveOn.org and other liberal groups.

Am I the only one who is getting emails from AARP telling me to support the Obamacare bill when at the same time they are on TV declairing that they are NOT supporting the bill? What kind of crazy double talk are they speaking? Do they really think seniors are that stupid?

You say "death panel counseling' is a lie. Here's another example for you. When GW was president, the army readied a pamphlet to give to soldiers returning from war. It was a nasty little pamplet which was designed to promote conversation concerning end of life issues. It contained questions such as how would you rate your quality of life if you were confined to a wheel chair, couldn't breathe well. etc. Would you consider suicide? GW to his credit, got rid of the pamphlet. Obama has reinstated it. Now that's his mindset and the mindset of Raul Emananuel..they are atheistic communists. These panels would bring up the idea of suicide to the elderly who are concerned about the expense of health care and having to rely upon others in a vulnerable time. That's obvious and to deny this is ignorant to say the least. I wouldn't be surprised if the CIA was making up it's own pamphlet right now for Obama.

AARP does not have an agenda for seniors. It has an agenda for left-wing politics. They promote the continuation and enargement of the wasteful entitlements we call Social Security and Medicare.

Pro-entitlement politics is the greatest threat to personal wealth that any senior has been blessed to have acquired over their lifetime. Entitlements enslave the recipients as well as those of us who pay for them.
