Obamacare will have “death panels”, just like Sarah Palin said.
This according to Ted Nugent:
“It’s built into the plan. It’s not like a guess or like a judgment. That’s going to be part of how costs are controlled,” Halperin told “The Steve Malzberg Show” on Newsmax TV.
Oh, they’re not called “Death Panels” – but, as we discussed in the past, HMOs are built around the idea of “Case Management”, which means “make sure the cost of the care is commensurate with the benefit received”. Don’t don’t transplant the liver of a 21 year old into a 70 year old alcoholic diabetic who’s already past their life expectancy if there’s a 30 year old who’d benefit more, for an extreme example.
And no, it wasn’t Ted Nugent. It was that noted conservative tool Mark Halperin.
