From Page 30 of the House “health” bill, take a look at lines 22 and 23:

‘22 ‘‘(iii) the use of antibiotics; and
23 ‘‘(iv) the use of artificially administered nutri-
tion and hydration.’’.’

It sounds very familiar, sadly.

Just in case anyone is interested, here’s an excerpt and link of the bill:

“11 ‘‘(B) The level of treatment indicated under subpara12
graph (A)(ii) may range from an indication for full treat13
ment to an indication to limit some or all or specified
14 interventions. Such indicated levels of treatment may in15
clude indications respecting, among other items—
16 ‘‘(i) the intensity of medical intervention if the
17 patient is pulse less, apneic, or has serious cardiac
18 or pulmonary problems;
19 ‘‘(ii) the individual’s desire regarding transfer
20 to a hospital or remaining at the current care set21
ting;
22 ‘‘(iii) the use of antibiotics; and
23 ‘‘(iv) the use of artificially administered nutri-
tion and hydration.’’.’

Sorry about my typo. It should be Page 430 (not 30).
