I thank Joe Lawler for bringing to our attention the absolutely superb explanation of the “death panel” issue by Avik Roy. Roy is directly on target.
For much more on this subject, I recommend the following links from the Washington Times and elsewhere. The NY Times correctly (for once) noted in one of their pieces that the “death panel” worries (but not by that name) first originated with the WashTimes, then were highlighted by Rush Limbaugh, and only then by Sarah Palin, who had the good political instincts to hang a name on the problem that was sure to send the left into a tizzy.
Anyway, apparently this item did not make the final cut in the law as passed, thank goodness. I believe this one still is. The conversation got jump-started here. This is also of concern. As is this. And this.
Maybe “death panel” is too strong a phrase for what will be happening. How about “faceless, bureaucratic, rules of coerced death” intead? What — too much of a mouthful? How about “Death by bureaucracy” instead?
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
