“Yes...They are going to push SUICIDE to cut medicare spending!!! And no, I am NOT SH—ing YOU!”

Whoever said this is full of horse throw. Take a look at this, assuming it’s what’s being used for a source, and show me where it says anything about assisted suicide, let along pushing assisted suicide.

It would be wise to check the source before posting things like this. Otherwise, a persons credibility suffers.

"Assisted suicide" may not be found in the text of the bill; however, it is known in the industry that hc budgets will be shifted away fr the elderly and flow to economically viable populations. That is a fact. Those disfavored groups in the proposed system will be ushered compassionately and fiscally responsibly to their expeditious death.

I think you are trying to temper the hysteria here and I appreciate that, but we must also not lose sight of the bigger picture.

You have a different version apparently, and you didn;t read on to the next page.

page 426 sub e is quite explicit

‘‘(E) An explanation by the practitioner of the

6 able, including palliative care and hospice, and bene
7 fits for such services and supports that are available
8 under this title.
