Get out there and speak out at the Town Hall Meetings, if you can. Concentrate on the important issues and do not be silenced! Call and write. Turns out Speaker Pelosi IS a fan of your actions....the advocates it in the above video...Go FIGURE~! Meanwhile....
Maybe the Left doesn't understand nuance....or doesn't want to read into the bill anything that isn't right there in specific words, and maybe DEATH PANEL was the silliest expression Sarah Palin could have used (giving the media and the White House great ammunition to argue with and scoff), but the inference that mainstream America doesn't understand that end of life issues WERE threatening as the bill was written (they're supposedly gone now, but I haven't had time or energy to look at the wording in its place) is just plain WRONG.
Sarah's DEATH PANEL remark has been an excellent foil for the leftwing, too. It's a terrific way to get around something that has NOT been taken out of the bill, nor will it be if the leftwingers have anything to say about it (and they do, sadly), and that is "You can keep your private insurance." In the way that that is a downright lie if you are mature enough to understand that there's no way private insurance can exist after this hideous health care plan goes into existence; it's also a downright lie to suggest end of life issues will NOT come up, in this bill or not, should Obama get his Plan. Mark my words. But, don't just rely on ME!! See THIS ARTICLE from Miss T.C. at "....in a Handbasket", she writes well and makes good points. Blogger and friend, Brooke, a nurse, said it this way in a comment in my piece about healthScare below:
Do I think there could be death panels? Not as such.
I do think health care will be rationed to those most productive, with less expensive conditions, etc.
If someone else with a more serious condition happens to die while waiting for those 'prioritized' for care, well, that'll just be unfortunate, won't it.
I think that is what most people fear from Obama's plan, and his so-called 'counseling' sessions.
