In case anyone ever doubted the existence of death panels, we now have further evidence of their planned role in healthcare reform. The fact that the Senate bill is structured to protect the rationing board by requiring a supermajority (two-thirds vote) to overrule its findings should send chills up your spine. This provision is designed to limit future legislatures' ability to curb its role in cost reduction through rationing. But don't accept my word for it. Listen to Jim DeMint discuss his concerns in a speech on the Senate floor.
If this healthcare bill is so wonderful, why does it seek to protect some committee's ability to ration our healthcare?
