And what facts are in your post? Here's some facts for you, just a year ago Glenn Beck was slamming our healthcare system saying it was the worst in the world, now he says it is the greatest and doesn't need to be changed. And how about Sarah Palin spewing lies about "death panels"? On April 16th 2008, then Gov. Sarah Palin endorsed some of the same end of life counseling she now decries as a form of euthanasia. In a proclamation announcing Healthcare Decisions Day, Palin urged public facilities to provide better information about advance directives, and made it clear that it is critical for seniors to be informed of their options. You would think that if Republicans wanted to totally mischaracterize a health care provision and demagogue it like nobody's business, they would at least pick something that the vast majority of them hadn't already voted for just a few years earlier. Because that's not just shameless, it's stupid.<quoted text>
Talk about spouting fear tactics, when you can't state any facts on your end that proves a point. Why don't you trying doing that?
Yes, that's right. Remember the 2003 Medicare prescription drug bill, the one that passed with the votes of 204 GOP House members and 42 GOP Senators? Anyone want to guess what it provided funding for? Did you say counseling for end-of-life issues and care? Ding ding ding!! You win the big stuffed animal!!!!
So either Republicans were for death panels in 2003 before turning against them now--or they're lying about end-of-life counseling in order to frighten the bejeezus out of their fellow citizens and defeat health reform by any means necessary.
Okay, WatchDog, your turn. Can you post some facts? And remember, I HAVE read the house bill.
