End of Life Counseling

So, the townhall shouters have made headway. They have actually succeeded in having the house remove the "End of Life Counseling" section from the healthcare bill. Here's a question for each and every one of those who I will refer to in the aggregate as "the opposition". How many of you have "End of Life Counseling" clauses in your private healthcare plans?

Let me repeat that.

How many of you have "End of Life Counseling" clauses in your private healthcare plans?

The answer is, close to 100%. Seriously, death panels?

The supposed evil that you rally against is precisely what you are risking life and limb to protect.

Huh?

Yes, that is right. You are fighting against what you are fighting to protect.

Your precious private healthcare plan offers you the same "End of Life Counseling" that President Obama is trying to extend to those with fewer privileges than you have.

Don't worry, your ill-informed rantings wield great power. The house has modified the bill for you. Keep up the good work, and for God's sake don't learn anything about what you are fighting for (or against).

Arrgghhh.
