    It is the same thing, true, but neither are death panels.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Ok, Let's be honest. When BO was talking to the woman during the HC debate and said maybe the best thing for her aging mom is for someone to tell her to take a blue pill and go home and die, who used to have that authority in the federal government? Answer.......NOBODY, now we have the Death Panel in BOCare that will have that authority. It will be called "death by rationing". Go ask the men in the UK, who have a 50% probability of dying from prostate cancer, how well rationing works for them......in this country the death rate from prostate cancer it a fraction of the UK experience where government mandated rationing is widespread.

    Fifteen unelected bureaucrats who decide what healthcare modalities Americans will live or die with, aka IPAB, is a death panel.

    No, they are not. but you're confusing two things. He quoted Obama and did so inaccurately.

    But, not being able to pay for something is not equal to a death panel. No one sits down and says we need to kill granny. No one says due to age or illness, we need to be rid of this person. Be it insurance or government, there are simply what we will pay for and what we won't. You're free, of course, to pay for it yourself. But no one is deciding who lives and who dies.

    Few pay for transplants. Which is why so many do fund raisers and the like.

    Actually, the government deciding what it will and won't pay for, under Obamacare, will affect your ability to get that care, period. There won't be a cash only system under Obamacare.

    A cash only system would really effect it -- negatively. But no one said there would be no effect. In fact, for many, it would increase the likelihood of receiving care.

    No, expensive live saving procedures will be priced and taxed out of the market.

    You'll have to settle for the same crap every other American gets.

    But you'll be equal!
