>Who Wants the Government to Kill Granny? Republicans, It Turns Out

06 Aug


You only need to watch the first minute or so of the video to learn that the source of all the hype and lies around the Public Option allowing the government to kill the elderly is from a provision that republicans actually put into some of the proposed health care bills being worked on. This particular republican senator from Georgia wanted the government bill to include covering living wills. You have to be quite an alarmist to lose your shit over that.

If only they’d stop shouting and bullying long enough to listen and observe how public options are run in this country now and in other industrialized nations, they’d realize that no government officials would interfere with a patient’s relationship to their doctor. But intelligent debate and discourse is exactly the opposite of what they’re contributing.
