    "Kill" is a dramatic word obviously, but if we stop the immunizations, etc. won't people die?

    The admin selected immunizations and trotted out 70,000 dead kids for effect.

    Seems to be working.
    So... if that is where the admin CHOOSES to makes the cuts... it's the administration CHOOSING to kill kids... not the GOP.

    I think they do. Sure it would take time, and in would take involvment. But, they could shut down the nonsense rethoric, demand real answers, ask real questions, and vote for better people in primaries. politicians know they are in a beauty contest and act accordingly. If we don't change, they never will.

    It was never a death panel. There is no such thing as a death panel. That is hyperbolic nonsense.

    In other news, the administration sacrificed 70,000 children to save public union pensions.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    That's right. Palin was never referring to any specific portion of the bill.

    Turns out she was right:

    "Democrats had dropped it from the monumental healthcare overhaul, according to Fox News, but the Obama administration has written it back in."
    The national security of the United States can never be left in the hands of liberals.

    No, there was never a death panel. Never. Someone calling something a death panel does not make it one. How can you not understand this?

    Boo, understanding an issue is not your strong point.

    I was thinking the same thing about you.

    I repeat, there is no such thing as a death panel. It never existed. Calling something a death panel does not make it one.

    Yeah, I agree. The public pretty much takes what is given to them. A lot of us complain about the B.S. that politicians give to citizens, but that complaining is rarely turned into meaningful action. Most people don't take time to really examine issues thoroughly, most people have short political memories, etc. Everybody has the power to influence society, but not many have the will to exercise it.
