Channeling right-wing fears

Let's see. If I understand what the right wing is trying to get across re: health care reform, their argument comes down basically to this sick fantasy:

ON MY GOD!

If the House DEATH CARE bill passes, everyone who needs care would first have to wait MONTHS for an appointment before an Obama Death Panel which would assess that person's "value to society" based on the ideas of Saul Alinsky and Karl Marx!

Many of those who survive the waiting process will be PUT TO DEATH at the hearing in order to save money so that the collective could provide care to those deemed healthier -- INCLUDING ILLEGAL ALIENS!

Can you imagine? Your DISABLED BABY could be killed to free up cash for Pedro the illegal grape picker!

IT'S EVIL! IT'S SATANIC!


Do I have the tone about right?

4. Don't forget, they will kill your grandma too...
...unless, of course, she was a Nazi or a card-carrying member of the Communist Party.
