The Hypocrisy Of Republicans On “Counseling For End Of Life Issues And Care”

Something often forgotten is that when the Bush Administration pushed for passage of the 2003 Medicare Prescription Drug Plan, which 204 House and 42 Senate members of the GOP voted for, it included so called “counseling for end of life issues and care”, which now is called “death panels”!

At that time, there was no controversy over what has become a distorted issue today. So it is obvious that the GOP is demagoging an issue purely for political reasons, knowing full well what they are doing.

Needless to say, the Republicans should be punished for this at the polls in 2010 and 2012. We shall see if that is the eventual outcome of this outrageous propaganda campaign, designed simply to terrify voters and make them emotional.
