About those "death panels"...

Turns out the Republicans were just projecting...brilliant video from The Agenda Project on the Republican budget proposals to eliminate Medicare.


  1. Hmm, three states Oregon, Washington & Montana accept the Right to Die - Physician Assisted Suicide in those cases with a "life threatening" medical condition. I maintain 'old age' is a life threatening medical condition. We should be able to choose to die when we are old.

    Same sex marriage is doing a bit better with Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and the District of Columbia on board (and the Coqville Indian tribe in Oregon)

    Ironically I don't want a 'death panel' decision rendered to me - I prefer to wheel my own chair over the cliff, thank you.

    Interestingly there are no states which support both the right to die and same sex marriage. "Curiouser and curiouser..."

  2. I agree with you completely on the right to die. That's so important.... I'd want to pick my own time and place rather than be drooling and alone in an anonymous hospital somewhere.

    But then, who needs Medicare when we've got the Rapture!!!
