Some of people's concerns have grown out of bogus claims spread by those whose only agenda is to kill reform at any cost. The best example is the claim, made not just by radio and cable talk show hosts, but prominent politicians, that we plan to set up panels of bureaucrats with the power to kill off senior citizens. Such a charge would be laughable if it weren't so cynical and irresponsible. It is a lie, plain and simple.
And about time someone said so. I loved the "don't be pulling this shit with me" tone tonight.
I will not waste time with those who have made the calculation that it’s better politics to kill this plan than improve it.
About fucking time.
