One of your heroes, Newt "acknowledged the tens of billions of dollars per year that Medicare could save if the majority of patients had end-of-life directives in place. "

So it sounds to me like you celebrate the idea of losing money.

Or you have something against living wills.

Here, Newt's own blog.

not sure what school you went to, but I would never use blogs and views/opinions as references, they're freaking opinions. Whether or not they have videos (which are obviously edited down from the originals) on them has nothing to do with anything.
BTW, I could care less about the actual topic of this thread, I'm just saying the references are awful at best. Then again I have never understood how anyone could watch msnbc for more than two seconds without pulling out a gun and either offing themselves or shooting the TV. It's not even entertaining.

No examination - no checking her painful joints - just stares at his screen.
I guess she's one of those whose end-of-life is not worthy of due diligence and her complaints that the prescriptions make her ill fall on deaf ears.
She's so despondent from her glorious full coverage, that she's ready to die, because she can't endure the pain anymore.
Oh, and let's not forget the dental care she can get FREE!
Oh, right, no dentist will take her, either.
OUCH.
But wait, the NEW reformed health care system will hire thousands and thousands of new bureaucrats and churn out reams of rules and regulations that will MAKE those greedy physicians work for less and less - or else!
And let's not have tort reform - gawd forbid that the legal profession has its rice bowl broken.
Oh, let's earmark some money for minority counseling and special interest groups. Acorn needs more funding...

Don't worry...
Any one who objects to the trillions in debt and loss of liberty will be declared INSANE, VIOLENT, EXTREMIST.

Because EVERYONE knows that to complain about the socialist paradise means you are not in your right mind.

Winston Smith
(We love you, Big Brother)
you are the opposite of Winston Smith.

The links went to ABC News and The Washington Post. The third shared the link to the Governor of Alaskas website. Did you even click them?

Yeah, but in this case Rush, Newt and Sarah intentionally lied, despite the fact that they're each on record promoting the very thing they're currently mock-opposing for the sole purpose of racking up ratings and for political gain.

Disgusting? Yes. Shocking? Not so much.

How do you question something that came directly from the guy's mouth?
Lol.

July 2 - for living wills, saying we can save 33 billion dollars per year.
August 12 - against living wills, calling them death panels.
