Sorry for my occasional foray into hard politics folks, but health care reform is a very serious subject and if we don’t all stand up and make our voices heard, we’ll be drowned out by the angry mobs being sicked upon our lawmakers by the health care industry owner’s lobbyists…

So – this assertion by the GOP that there are “death panels” that will decide the value of the lives of the elderly and terminally ill?

Turns out that all the republican senators already voted for the “death panels” IN 2003.

Here are the votes:

Here’s the blogger who dug up this hypocrisy.

And here’s the TEXT OF THE BILL.

This is FUD – Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt being pervaded by those who make sickeningly large profits to keep the status quo and stop any chance at reform. Not just “change we can believe in,” but necessary and difficult reform.Try to keep your wits about you and think rationally, people. We’re all in this together.
