One of the saddest parts of the whole health care debate has been the idea of 'death panels'- a backroom bureaucratic system that decides who gets to live and who gets to die. But don't you understand? When people are unable to afford health care, a choice for them. From The Huffington Post:

"When insurance companies deny coverage to critically ill patients
because of what they deem "pre-existing conditions," they sentence
those people to misery and often death...When acutely and chronically ill people are unable to purchase medicine
because of exorbitant prices, pharmaceutical death panels have spoken"
