If Sarah Palin is an idiot who goes around just making stuff up, then why jettison the "death panel" language?:
Reporting from Washington - A Senate panel has decided to scrap the part of its healthcare bill that in recent days has given rise to fears of government "death panels," with one lawmaker suggesting the proposal was just too confusing.Liberals thought that they would have free reign to run this country into the ground after they helped to elect Barack Obama to POTUS. But they were wrong and they're getting more and more fed up about it, so much so that Barry and his stans on the Left aren't even open to dissent anymore--the same thing they accused former President Bush of doing when the GOP ran Congress. But Americans aren't going to let them bully an agenda that's rooted in nothing but anti-Bush sentiment. Americans want solutions, not vengeance.
The Senate Finance Committee is taking the idea of advance care planning consultations with doctors off the table as it works to craft its version of healthcare legislation, a Democratic committee aide said Thursday. Sen. Charles E. Grassley of Iowa, ranking Republican on the committee, said the panel dropped the idea because it could be "misinterpreted or implemented incorrectly."
For Democrats, the decision was an apparent acknowledgment that the provision had become a lightning rod for critics of a proposed overhaul of the U.S. healthcare system. Democratic lawmakers and President Obama are trying to extend health insurance to more people, rein in health costs and make other changes. Recently, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin speculated that Obama and other Democrats wanted to set up "death panels" to decide who gets medical services and who does not.
