    I enver said anything about a death panel. Feel free to quote me. Thank you. Care to address my actual comments, or are you going to keep addressing comments I didn't make? Just let me know.

    If you are not addressing the death panel comment which this thread is very specific in addressing then you're simply posting off topic - to which there's no point in addressing you any further.
    If you are claiming that you never said anything about a death panel than I must ask as to what of any significance is your post on a 9 panel judge with the surgeon general as the chairman? Seems you're suggesting that that very 9 panel judge is the death panel, or is it? would help if you could clear it up and in your own words establish that you are not eluding to any such insane suggestion.

    In this statement, she's absolutely correct,
    Stop playing games. What she describes is EUTHANASIA.

    What she describes is NOT in the bill.

    She is correct about nothing. Again with the really hyperbolic talking points meant to appeal to uneducated people. She continues to reveal her lack of intellect and critical thinking ability by appealing to the lowest common denominator.


    there will be a nine person panel, with the surgeon general as the chair, that will dole out healthcare as they see fit. Have you read that part of the bill?
    For ****'s sake get better informed and stop looking like a total ass.

    Palin 'death panel' claim sets Truth-O-Meter ablaze

    Palin's claim sounds a little like another statement making the rounds, which says that health care reform would mandate counseling for seniors on how to end their lives sooner. We rated this claim Pants on Fire! The truth is that the health bill allows Medicare, for the first time, to pay for doctors' appointments for patients to discuss living wills and other end-of-life issues with their physicians. These types of appointments are completely optional, and AARP supports the measure.

    Palin also may have also jumped to conclusions about the Obama administration's efforts to promote comparative effectiveness research. Such research has nothing to do with evaluating patients for "worthiness." Rather, comparative effectiveness research finds out which treatments work better than others.

    The health reform bill being considered in the House of Representatives says that a Comparative Effectiveness Research Center shall "conduct, support, and synthesize research" that looks at "outcomes, effectiveness, and appropriateness of health care services and procedures in order to identify the manner in which diseases, disorders, and other health conditions can most effectively and appropriately be prevented, diagnosed, treated, and managed clinically."

    Re: Republican senator calls Palin’s ‘death panels’ ‘nuts’

    When Obama said that a quarter of medicare spending takes place in the last year of somebody's life was that just a casual remark?

    When he talks about "end of life life counseling" what does he have in mind?

    Sara Palin doesn't like this kind of talk. Big deal! It should be up to the patient and the doctor.

    If a liberal said something about "death panels" in Iraq nobody in the media would bat an eye.

    I just read this.
