Fishy doesn’t begin to describe it. I mean the president’s plan, not the critics who point to disconcerting facts within the plan. Sarah Palin’s “death panel” rhetoric isn’t helpful (to stay nothing of the idiots who show up to town hall meetings with “Death to Obama” signs). But I deliberately write “isn’t helpful” rather than “blatantly false.” There is the provision that divides the amount of money a particular procedure will cost by your life expectancy to arrive at a formula that tells government officials whether or not you get the procedure. For a deviated septum, not so bad. But for a heart condition? Okay, so it’s not a “death panel;” it’s one step removed. Feel better?
