(AP) Key senators are excluding a provision on end-of-life care from
health overhaul legislation after language in a House bill caused a furor.
Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa, top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee,
said in a statement Thursday that the provision had been dropped from
consideration because it could be misinterpreted or implemented incorrectly. A
health care bill passed by three House committees allows Medicare to reimburse
doctors for voluntary counseling sessions about end-of-life decisions. But
critics have claimed the provision could lead to death panels and euthanasia for
seniors. The Senate Finance Committee is still working to complete a bill.
Kinda hard to take something out if it was never there to begin with!
STILL THINK THE PEOPLE TRYING TO PUSH THIS BILL THROUGH ARE TELLING US THE WHOLE TRUTH???!!!??? TIME TO WAKE UP AMERICA!
