Sarah Palin Was Right – The VA Death Panels

From comments:

How does a unionized Veteran’s Administration nurse differ from a bullet?

1. A bullet can draw blood.
2. A bullet only kills one time
3. You can fire a bullet

H/T Conservative Scalawag, and again our friend ‘Splodey Tank Commander Chuck. (I think I can say that since he told me about it.)

And see here as Chuck says, “Note also that many of these conditions that invite our veterans to declare their lives “not worthy of living” (Lebensunwerte Leben) are not even terminal illnesses to which a living will would apply!”

To be sure, there’s no death panel. If we gave a document like this to someone immediately after serious injury, they’d volunteer to die.

After the Bush White House took a look at how this document was treating complex health and moral issues, the VA suspended its use. Unfortunately, under President Obama, the VA has now resuscitated “Your Life, Your Choices.”

  1. I read ” Your Life, Your Choice”. I don't like but if you fill it out ahead of time you can beat them at their own game. Better than that do a legally binding Medical Power of Attorney.

  2. Isn't it just great that public employees can unionize? They're there to do public work, and yet they can band together and hold their department hostage through a strike…
