    But, hey, keep saying that that many Americans are stupid. I'm sure it will win your party plenty of votes next years.
    Actually that section of the bill was written by REPUBLICAN Sen. Johnny Isakson of Georgia.

    But who cares. Obama and all of us Democrats have a sinister plot to kill your grandma. Mwahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

    I can't. This is important.

    lmfao!....
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    That's right, who cares who wrote it, it said what it said.

    Not according to Isakson

    “This is what happens when the President and members of Congress don’t read the bills," says Isakson in a paper statement. "The White House and others are merely attempting to deflect attention from the intense negativity caused by their unpopular policies. I never consulted with the White House in this process and had no role whatsoever in the House Democrats’ bill. I categorically oppose the House bill and find it incredulous that the White House and others would use my amendment as a scapegoat for their misguided policies,” Isakson continued. “My Senate amendment simply puts health care choices back in the hands of the individual and allows them to consider if they so choose a living will or durable power of attorney. The House provision is merely another ill-advised attempt at more government mandates, more government intrusion, and more government involvement in what should be an individual choice.”

    Here's Johnny!: Isakson Pushes Back on "Death Panels" - But Also on House Democrats' Bill - Political Punch
    This is the problem when you write a piece of legislation over 1,000 pages with language that neither the people nor the Congressmen themselves, and apparently the President, can understand.

    Which means there were no death panels in it. Glad you agree.

    And even though I and others on here have gone through the section of the bill on end of life counseling on here with you line by line, for what ever reason, you refuse to accept that no "death panels" were ever in the bill and you still throw this garbage around. That's not exactly a hallmark of good character.
