I'm both shocked and not very surprised by this:
[G]rowing complaints over the [end-of-life] provision are leading key lawmakers to conclude that the health overhaul should leave out any end-of-life counseling provisions. A group in the Senate Finance Committee that is attempting to craft Congress's only bipartisan health bill has decided to exclude such a measure, Senate aides said this week.
So what does this tell us? The Republicans can lie and distort reality, and ultimately the Democrats will acquiesce to this insanity, thus confirming that lying and distorting reality is really effective. Maybe Sarah Palin is onto something after all.
