    The return of 'death panels'? - The Week

    Sarah Palin memorably labeled an end-of-life counseling option in the Obama health care reform plan as "death panels," fueling an uproar that led Democrats to withdraw the measure. Now, the Obama administration is effectively enacting the same policy through a new Medicare rule that takes effect Jan. 1. Under the policy, Medicare will pay for doctors to advise patients on end-of-life care, including the option to forego aggressive treatments.

    Let's cut the lies this time: The only thing more "shameful" than the fact that "Sarah Palin was able to launch her celebrity career by misleading and terrifying millions of people" with the "death panel" lie is that the media helped her do it, says Kay at Balloon Juice. The advance medical directives soon to be covered under Medicare "aren't controversial" or even new, and they give patients "more autonomy and power," not less. Let's hope we're more rational this time around
