It's unbelievable the rabid pitch that the "Death Panelers" (one of them is Sarah Palin, which is certainly no surprise to me) have stooped to regarding the current health care reform activity taking place across the country. I find it extremely distasteful that this Tea Party group would stoop so low as to scare the elderly. But of course this was done during Kathleen Blanco's run for governor, wasn't it?. So it is a bipartisan dirty politic kind of thing.
I truely wish that all of the people who believe everything that's told to them about the health care reform would do their homework. With access to the internet, it's not too difficult to find the bill itself and read through it. Here's the link to all 1,015 pages:
It's in "pdf" format, so if you don't have it you'll have to download adobe.
There is a very bright young woman named Adriana Maxwell out of Atlanta who is in the process of reading the bill. She's sharing her interpretation of the bill at a neat website I just found today called ireport dot com. Here she is seen discussing the first 150 pages. Of course it is her interpretation, but I would believe her before ever listening to some of these wackos that show up at the town hall meetings taking place this month.
Actually I find it quite amusing to see some of thes pompous asses in the congress and senate having to put up with the stresses of a hostile audience. They need a little taste of life in the trenches.
