The final solution?

According to Kim Priestap's Political Insights blog, HR 3200--the epic length health reform bill--has a provision in it that requires the elderly to visit their doctors and nurse practitioners (note: not their lawyers) every 5 years to discuss information regarding living wills, hospice, durable powers of attorney, and other end of life decisions.

This is where we're headed folks. The government now interfering in those pesky "end of life decisions"...all in the name of saving money. It's sad when the greatest country on earth no longer values its elders.

Lest you think we're just devaluing the elderly, think again. The bill also has provisions for the government to pay for abortions. HR 3200 defines abortion as an "essential benefit."

I'm wondering what other nuggets are hidden throughout HR 3200.

By the way, Barack-star went on record today in a conference call with liberal bloggers like Daily Kos and the Huffington Post that he'll do anything to get this thing passed--regardless of public opinion.

Where did our democracy go?
