death panels

a lot of people have so far heard alot about the death panels. like most other people in the country the word “death” makes it sound pretty bad and makes some even acuse the government of being nazi’s and trying to euthinize senior citizens like the nazi’s had since the old and sick couldnt work or help out in many (or sometimes any) way.

the fact is, these claims are untrue. the death panels are a medicare benifit they are trying to set up and make free for everyone on medicare. for those of you who have parents on medicare (though it may be limited numbers of my readers) have they ever had  a stroke and were unable to make important decisions for themselves? ever had to fight with lawyers to be ablle to make decisions for said parent in this case legally? well this is what the death panels are, lawyers willing to help you with this for free because their being paid by the government. their meant to be there to help you make decisions for a loved one that will no longer be able to make them for themselves or for setting something up for if (or in some cases when or maybe its even happened already) you need to gain this power over loved ones.

do the death panels still sound bad? i know it doesnt for me with my dad already in his mid-fifties and my mom soon to enter menopause. if something ever happened to them and they were old enough to get medicare (or maybe were on it already at this point) i know id want this panel out there, wouldnt you?
