Health Care Quote of the Day

"It does us no good to incite fear in people by saying that there's these end-of-life provisions, these death panels. Quite honestly, I'm so offended at that terminology because it absolutely isn't (in the bill). There is no reason to gin up fear in the American public by saying things that are not included in the bill."

-- Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-AK

The"Death Panel" campaign is a classic "Disinformation" effort, and it is working. It keeps health reform proponents busy saying what reform is not. Unfortunately, there is no readable summary of what is in the House health reform bill.

And if Advance Care Planning is euthanasia, someone needs to tell a strong proponent, Newt Gingrich.
