22. Now we know where the right-wing projection about "death panels" is coming from...
They really exist.

"But Williams HMO did not want to pay for these procedures, so their medical director called the family doc and insisted that William be sent to a different lung specialist---and placed on hospice. Unbelievable, right? Williams story is absolutely true. I am the family physician who slammed down the phone."

The thing that makes me despair for America is the number of Americans that think this medical director has a right to his job, his house, his money, his family, his life, while - let's not put too much of a happy face on it - killing people for money.

But no. Life-destroying criminal sentences are reserved for pot dealers, whistleblowers, and people who photograph the police at work.
