Does the GOP health bill eliminate the Death Panels?


And, if not, why not?

As I recall, they particularly disliked the Death Panels, but I haven't heard anything about getting rid of them.

Someone should ask them "Which section of the bill eliminates the Death Panels?"

And if they don't have an answer, ask them why they aren't getting rid of them.

1. I would like to know if there are provisions to plug Grandma back in?

Grassley: "We should not have a government program that determines if you’re going to pull the plug on grandma.”

3. Duh...

Death panels are only in session when the sitting president t is a liberal black man. They are on recess when a conservative white man is president.

5. I remember arguing with some of them about that

Asked them to find where it was in the law. They would cite a provision that provided that doctors should provide end of life counseling, and they insisted that language meant "death panels."

It would be interesting to taunt them with this. See if they can find language in the act - they would probably just say it repeals Obamacare, so it must repeal the death panels.

10. There will be plenty of death panels.

More for trump voters in the red states than in the blue states.

Well, this is how their part of america will be made great! I hope they never get tired of winning!
