    PolitiFact | McCaughey claims end-of-life counseling will be required for Medicare patients

    The Statement: The health care reform bill "would make it mandatory -- absolutely require -- that every five years people in Medicare have a required counseling session that will tell them how to end their life sooner."

    The Ruling: Pants on Fire

    Well look at that, that whole myth that this new Health Care Reform is going to force Seniors to die or that they will be advised to die is a myth! Who knew, such partisan statements were lies! :eek:

    Look at that, a valuable voluntary thing that Medicare will pay for. How shameful! :eek:

    In other words, Myth *stamps* Busted.

    The disinformation brigades are working overtime again.

    Have no fear, however, the truth requires nothing to out.

    The lies require constant maintanance to keep them in play.

    Since the last time that the health care big lie brigade was in place and operating full time (in the early 90s) millions upon million of americans have discovered that their HC systems are failing them.

    These people may not know what the solution is, but they're god-damned sure that doing nothing isn't going to work.

    Truth is like gravity.

    They can overcome it for a while with great effort, but it never stops pulling us back to reality.

    That's about the size of it editec. It's a scramble in mass fear mongering right now. Meanwhile, 15,000+ people a day lose their Health Insurance.

    Then those 15K need to get another job, and get another health insurance policy. Can't get a job, you say? That's because they don't want to actually "work". Waiting tables, washing dishes, sacking groceries and working for the highway department are beneath most of these so-called out of work prople who want the government to furnish a healthcare program for them paid for by the actual workers in this country.

    Yup, that's right Soaring. In order to defend your argument, insult the average American in order to bolster your argument. :clap2:

    What ignorance on your part to just group together every single person who has lost their health insurance (and assume) that it came from losing their job alone. These companies also throw you off for pre-existing conditions, and when you get a horrible chronic disease.

    "Whether it's tonsillectomies or hysterectomies ... procedures are done three times as frequently [in some parts of the country than others] and there's no benefit in terms of the health of the population. And by doing the right kind of cost-effectiveness, by making the right kinds of investments and protection, some experts ... estimate that we could take as much as $700 billion a year out of our health care system..."

    Too bad Lawrence Summers of the Obama Traveling Circus and Euthanasia Brigade disagrees with the OP

    There were 47MM uninsured when the Clintons tried to Socialize Healthcare in 1993. Lemme see, that was 16 years ago, which equals 5840 days @15,000 losing their insurance per day means OMG! Obama a fucking liar! There are at least 87,000,000 who lost their insurance since the Clintons tried to have the Gubbamint take over healthcare!

    OMFG! There must be 134MM people without health insurance!

    Just as long as she's 65 years old or less, they'll take care of her just fine.
