Death Panel Recommends Death


So it begins: Panel Urges Overhauling Health Care at End of Life

Taking care to make sure that Republicans are implicated, the NY Times hails death of the elderly.

“The current system is geared towards doing more, more, more, and that system by definition is not necessarily consistent with what patients want, and is also more costly.”

The operative word here is "costly."I have no problem with any old person expressing the wish to be left to die in peace. I have a big problem with Death Panels deciding that death is cheaper than life and making that the national goal.  

The Times dresses up the panel as the best minds in medicine:
The 21-member nonpartisan committee, appointed by the Institute of Medicine, the independent research arm of the National Academy of Sciences, called for sweeping change.
Does anyone have any doubt that the panel would come out for more death for the elderly to save money?  That's as inconceivable as a government panel on climate coming out with a report that global warming is a hoax.   The results are preordained.

Palin was right ... again.
