    Medicare regulation revives end-of-life planning - USATODAY.com


    So will you people call end of life counseling death panels again this time?

    will you insult the families going through this emotional time and make their pain worse?

    Will you accuse families who get this counciling of planning to kill their loved one?

    "Death Panels" were never about end of life counselling. The term was about those who will decide who gets what treatment in 'universal health care'. Those panels exist in every country that has 'universal health care'. Read the original research... from Dr Emanuel.... brother of Rahm. That research refers to children under the age of two as 'not fully developed humans'. Charming man.

    Death panels (political term) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Use of the term

    A death panel sign with a Nazi reference at a Rep. Carol Shea-Porter town hall meetingHealth law and bioethics expert George J. Annas wrote that "the national discussion on death planning the president had hoped for focused instead on death denial. Make believe 'death panels' that would 'pull the plug on grandma' were used as a rhetorical device to block any rational discussion of either death generally, or end of life care in particular".[32] Geriatric psychiatrist Paul Kettl noted that the attention-catching phrase death panels became "a lightning rod for objections to a series of ideas about health care besides" end-of-life discussions, and that somehow, "the concept of physicians being paid for time to talk with patients and their families about advance directives ... generated into the fear of decisions about life and death being controlled by the government".[33] Brent J. Pawlecki, a corporate medical director, said the phrases death panels and "killing Grandma" were "used to fuel the flames of fear and opposition".[34][35] According to The Economist, the phrase was used as an "outrageous allegation" to confront politicians at town hall meetings during the August 2009 congressional recess.[36] According to The New York Times, the term became a standard slogan among many conservatives opposed to the Obama administration’s health care overhaul

    I'm not at all interested in your lies, nor do I take anything from wiki as a serious source. Your moronic whining is boring.

    Under your definition, they also exist in every health insurance company claims analysis.

    Are you talking about this type of republican death panel in Arizona, or some other type of death panel?

    Organ Transplants Denied in Arizona after Medicaid Agency's Budget Cut - Health Blog - CBS News

    The repubs could have saved this guys life, but for 200K, I guess there were some potholes that needed filling.

    So, what exactly is this new regulation going to do, exactly?

    Wiki can be edited by anyone. So naturally it fits it with your Lefty Revisionist goals.

    End of Life Counceling Panel = Death Panels. Anyone can see that.

    Maybe you fascist lefties can pass a law calling the term "Death Panel" a hate crime eh? That's the preferred method to try to thwart the 1st Amendment isn't it?
