I saw a news bit on Teddy Kennedy’s brain cancer that explained that the life expectancy was extremely low for people with his condition. And the expensive procedures he had to prolong his life by one year had a very poor prognosis, statistically. Under Obamacare, Kennedy would never have received his expensive life extending procedures.
I wish Sarah Palin and others in the spotlight would point this out.

"...Under Obamacare, Kennedy would never have received his expensive life extending procedures...."
Some food for thought .... During Ted Kennedy's fight with this cancer, a parallel story came to light regarding a Canadian man's fight with the identical form of cancer ... the Canadian healthcare system denied the SAME treatment to this man, stating that the medication was too expensive and prognosis was .. poor at best.
