The health care reform bill "would make it mandatory ó absolutely require ó that every five years people in Medicare have a required counseling session that will tell them how to end their life sooner."

For our ruling on this one, there's really no gray area here. McCaughey incorrectly states that the bill would require Medicare patients to have these counseling sessions and she is suggesting that the government is somehow trying to interfere with a very personal decision. And her claim that the sessions would "tell [seniors] how to end their life sooner" is an outright distortion. Rather, the sessions are an option for elderly patients who want to learn more about living wills, health care proxies and other forms of end-of-life planning. McCaughey isn't just wrong, she's spreading a ridiculous falsehood. That's a Pants on Fire.

Our ruling
McCaughey says in "Obamacare will question your sex life" that you can thank the presidentís health law for questions about your sexual activity, even if your doctor finds them unnecessary.
She suggests itís part of Obamacareís move toward electronic health records. But incentives for electronic health records were part of the Recovery Act, not Obamacare. And they donít require participating doctors to ask questions about your sex life.
McCaughey frames her concern for patient privacy with an evidence-free attack on Obamacare that veers toward the ridiculous. We call it Pants on Fire.
"PolitiFact has been both praised and criticized by independent observers, conservatives, and liberals alike. Conservative bias and liberal bias have been alleged, and criticisms have been made of attempts to fact-check statements that cannot be truly "fact-checked".

There's lots more where this came from...
How Regulation came to be: The Iroquois Theater Fire
by dsteffen
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2009/02/22/7005...
...The brand-new Iroquois Theater on the north side of Randolph between State and Dearborn, fashioned after the Opera Cominque in Paris, advertised itself as the latest in state-of-the-art "fireproof" construction. Designed with the latest in fire-safety technology, it had 27 exits and bragged its 1,700-seat audience could empty the theater in less than five minutes. But as with so many things in those days (like, say, ocean liners), when the chips were down the Iroquois had trouble living up to its press.
I work in a construction-related industry, and if there's one given in the construction business, it's that schedules never go as planned. The Iroquois' owners anticipated opening the new theater in time to cash in on the holiday season in 1903, but the work, already scheduled at a break-neck pace, was behind and the theater still under construction as Thanksgiving approached. Impatient owners opened the unfinished theater anyway on November 23, 1903 and continued finishing work as the theater operated through the holiday season. On-going painting and varnishing gave off volatile fumes and many of the theater's advertised fire-protection features had yet to be installed.
...Some of the exits were hidden behind drapes and not marked. Others were locked to foil gate crashers. Some were latched with Bascule locks, common in European theaters but virtually unknown in America, which required the operation of a small, inconspicuous lever to open. And, as was the practice at the time, all of the exit doors opened inwards.
...Masses of bodies were piled at the exits. Hundreds of people had clawed and clambered over each other trying to reach the doors, jammed shut by the weight of the crowds of people pressed against them. People were trampled and crushed. In the tangles of bodies at the exits firemen found those on the outside burned, while those in the middle were untouched by the flames, suffocated by the crush or dead of smoke inhalation. Some theater-goers made their way to fire escape doors on the upper floors only to discover the exterior fire escape ladders had not yet been installed.
...In the aftermath of the fire, Chicago enacted new regulations to protect patrons from being trapped in public buildings during a fire. As has so often happened over the years, the regulations adopted by the City of Chicago became a model for the rest of the nation, and their impact, revolutionary at the time, is now taken for granted. Those ubiquitous "EXIT" signs that mark the path to safety and doors you push, not pull, are just two of the safety features that share a direct line of descent from the charred interior of the Iroquois Theater.
...And that, dear Kossacks, is where regulation comes from -- not from some bored bureaucrat sitting in an office in Washington trying to think up ways to make life miserable and expensive for some innocent and unsuspecting businessman, but from real human suffering and tragedy brought about, all too often, by people who shirk what should be obvious responsibilities, who neglect basic diligence, who sacrifice safety for profit. They bring suffering on those who trust them and their products, and society adopts measures to make sure it never happens again. We have to force them, through regulation, to behave as they should have been behaving all along. That's how Regulations come to be.
Seems that the liberals have a problem with the accuracy of Politifact. I can post more links if you'd like. As I said. It's a matter of interpretation.

lol Perhaps we'll need to wait and see. There are SO MANY unknowns about Obamacare, although it will be too late, we'll just have to accept WHATEVER your dictator has decided is best for us. He didn't care that a majority of his subjects didn't want HIS law, he just wanted to be sure his name was on it.
Nope no dictators involved, the law was passed by a duly elected Congress and signed by a duly elected President. While these facts may be hard for some to accept they are still facts.

According to the AP, if you are a scientist or statistician and the evidence doesn't support your previous "claims", just scramble around and change it in order to keep your support at the upcoming conference.

The fact is that the senate did not vote. It was pushed through under reconciliation. Pelosi said she didn't know what was in it and we'd find out later. When challenged in the supreme court the Obama administration changed the definition to a tax or it would not have made it through there either. of course they spent months telling anyone that would listen that it wasn't a tax, but the truth is always a casualty when this president opens his mouth. Since we all Know that all taxes are subject to approval of the house, then the house was and is well within it's purview to suspend and/or cancel funding.(Think Viet Nam)
The senate can now either listen to their constituents and remove funding for the Affordable Care Act (another oxymoron) or they can shut down the government. Very simple. The house funds all other activities of government save for the automatic increases. Course the progressives that rule the democrat party with an iron fist will lie and call these "cuts". Holding the line is not a cut.
The democrats in the senate might actually do the right thing and accept the house bill as written and then der leader can either submit to the will of the people or he can shut down the government. The choices are clear.

The greatest thing about ObamaCare is how is forces Right Wingers to reveal how they really, really, hate the thought of personal responsibility; how they really, really hate the thought that they might be forced to pay for their own medical care.

It's is so amusing to read this self-proclaimed "conservatives" whining and puling about a law that simply says if you don't carry insurance, you'll pay a few hundred dollars to help pay toward the medical care you utilize.

How much clearer can these freeloading deadbeats make it that they are the biggest parasites around ?

Oh how those socialist commie welfare -baby Right Wingers love to vote Republican:

Romney won 213 of the 254 counties where food stamp use has doubled.

For you Right Wingers that's 84%.

Thanks Right Wingers, we taxpayers who support you enjoy watching you slurping at the food stamp trough and demanding free medical care.

What is it with Right Wingers and their obsession with porn and sex- didn't Momma let you keep your Playgirl magazines when you were young ?

Were you rejected by your high school sweetheart when you put the moves on him ?

Do we have to raise money to buy you a hooker too ?

Damn you and your damn "Democracy".

Obama was elected by blacks and white trash and they shouldn't be allowed to vote anyhow.

As soon as we cut the number of voting hours down to 3.5; make every problem precinct (read democratic) intimidate the hell out of "Those People" when they try to vote; and make it illegal to extend voting hours when the polls can't handle all the voters; we'll have overcome that pesky "democracy" problem.

The NSDAP had it right - As soon as you keep the "Those People" from voting, the right results are bound to follow.
