    Total bullshit.

    Doctors have been doing end of life counselling for decades. The only difference is now Medicare doctors would be paid to perform this service.

    Death panels, my ass.

    A person should have available to him/her what choices they have from staying hooked up forever to saying I want to chose if I prefer to die in my own style.

    This is such a crock of partisan shit to play the death panels and euthansia over logical argument of how we can create the best healthcare system for our citizens.

    We don't have it now even for those with insurance.

    Once more the right wing extremists are running/ruining their party.

    If the care in Canada is so bad, why is it that 87% of those surveyed wanted to keep it the way it is.

    Why do Republicans hate the elderly? I've never actually understood this.

    Why does the left hate Americans, especially the old, young, and handicapped? Why do they lie, the way most of us breathe?

    Death panels? Seems the left is more wrapped up with it than the right. Palin siad it and the left has not let go of it. If they did, it woulds have died, Instead, they took out anything that implies it...so yes...THANK YOU LEFT for not letting it go.

    Grandma? No one is going to pull the plug. Obama is correct. The question is, will it be deemed more appropriate to simply not hook her up to the machine?

    And what about emergency situations...such as a financial collapse? Government bankrupcy? No..not far fetched...look at California....look at the deficit we have thanks to the last two admins...look at our national debt...

    So pleaase tell me.....what will happen IF there is the need for rationing?

    rihlp.org???

    you want bluecross/blue shield explaining health care reform???

    RI Health Literacy - Steering Committee

    RAFLMAO!

    aren't you ashamed to keep disseminating false information?

    but keep fighting health care reform.... good luck if you ever lose your job and have no coverage.... or have a pre-existing condition.....

    or get denied payment for medical treatment by an insurance company....

    i truly hope none of those things ever happen to you...

    Oh i see.....having ONE public option will create competiton and keep those evil insurance companies honest...

    But...

    Opening up state lines and allowing 100's of insurance companies compete with each other in ALL states will not create enough competition to keep them honest.

    Oh...I see...One has more of an affect than 100's.

    Sure...THAT makes sense.

    Stop litening to and regurgitating talking points. It makes you look foolish.

    WHy not simply apply logic?

    Why do you just complain about spelling and topics, but never care for your own? Why do you hate the elderly and helpless? Why keep lying?
