Rachel Maddow debunks the "death panels"

Rachel Maddow brings attention to one of the crazier myths surrounding the U.S. health care proposals recently, the notion that seniors are going to somehow be "put to death" by their government or that the federal government will intervene in people's long-term planning. wills enter the American conversation and become horribly distorted talking points. Maddow clarifies the origin of proposals for living wills, i.e., Republican, and helpfully calls for the facts to return to the discussion.

I do believe the spoofing of this topic is just too easy...what some must imagine is an average day in any Canadian community...
