    • ObamaCare will create 'Death Panels'.
      • MythSeniors and the disabled "will have to stand in front of Obama's 'death panel' so his bureaucrats can replique breitling decide, based on a subjective judgment of their 'level of productivity in society,' whether they are worthy of health care."

        Fact

        There is no panel in any version of the health care bills in Congress that judges a person's "level of productivity in society" to determine whether they are "worthy" of health care.

        The health reform bill being considered in the House of Representatives says that a Comparative Effectiveness Research replique montre rolex Center shall "conduct, support, and synthesize research" that looks at "outcomes, effectiveness, and appropriateness of health care services and procedures in order to identify the manner in which diseases, disorders, and other health conditions can most effectively and appropriately be prevented, diagnosed, treated, and managed clinically."

        From Senator Johnny Isackson (R-Georgia) (See second source for full interview) In the health-care debate mark-up, one of the things I talked about was that the most money spent on anyone is spent usually in the last 60 days of life and that's because an individual is not in a capacity to replika klockor make decisions for themselves. So rather than getting into a situation where the government makes those decisions, if everyone had an end-of-life directive or what we call in Georgia "durable power of attorney," you could instruct at a time of sound mind and body what you want to happen in an event where you were in difficult circumstances where you're unable to make those decisions.

        This has been an issue for 35 years. All 50 states now have either durable powers of attorney or end-of-life directives and it's to protect children or a spouse from being put into a situation where they have to make a terrible decision as well as physicians from being put into a position where replique montre pas cher they have to practice defensive medicine because of the trial lawyers.It's just better for an individual to be able to clearly delineate what they want done in various sets of circumstances at the end of their life.
