Death Panel 2.1? As Palin would say, "You betcha!"
This article can try to explain that Obama's new deficit reduction plan won't become "death panel 2.1", but don't fool yourselves, folks. In order for all that the author is describing to work as he's describing it, a lot of people have to do their job right, and if the government has trouble keeping those damn air traffic controllers awake, then how can we expect them to run this program in the way that the author describes? Somewhere along the line, some lazy bureaucrat is going to cut time and costs to leave people out of necessary medical care, and we'll have a de facto "death panel" as a result. Socialized medicine, under whatever guise it comes in, is an epic fail, and I'll keep saying it until it sinks in.
