Default Re: Health Care Reform Dead

Have you ever seen the movie Thank You for Smoking?

During the Senate testimony, Aaron Eckhart's character accuses the senator from Vermont of contributing to higher cholesterol in the U.S. by supporting Vermont cheese.

That's basically what has happened to the healthcare policy debate. Groups that oppose public healthcare have been allowed to shift the debate, so that we're not even really talking about healthcare policy anymore.

Instead, we debate the existence of "death panels", which isn't actually an issue to begin with. But it doesn't matter, because opponents to healthcare reform can now cite death panels from now until the reform movement is dead, and everyone is going to accept it as fact, even though it's a fabrication.
