Healthcare Debate: Fog of War or Outright Lying

One-sixth of all our government spending is on health care, twice as much as any other country spends out of its budget. Our nation pays $2.5 trillion for care costing $912 billion.

I'm open to discussion on this one. Here goes...

There is currently a myth out there that the health care reform bill will allow the federal government to set up "death panels" so that the government overseers can put to death the most extreme (READ: Elderly) health care users.

All of the people voting on this bill are elected officials. Almost everyone admits that most politicians first priority is to get reelected. Passing a law with this provision would make it much more difficult for these politicians to get reelected. Considering that the cohort within the electorate that is most likely to vote are the elderly, this provision makes no sense and is not even close to true.

The provision being misquoted for this scare tactic allows for federal funding of end of life counseling. That is a fancy term for a living will. This provision is really funding individuals , only if they choose, services to create a document that instructs health care personnel and next of kin what health care procedures and lifesaving procedures the individual might desire.

The truth is not nearly as scary as the smear tactics that interest groups are putting out is it...

I'm open to differing opinions on this one.

There have been times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
