Heckuva story. Earl Blumenauer is the man responsible for the language in H.R. 3200 that Sarah Palin erroneously claimed created “death panels.”
He’s a Congressman from Oregon.
In Saturday’s New York Times he detailed how critics hijacked the debate with false claims. Fascinating story.
A very odd result: Because of the false claims, a provision to help people plan to avoid death panels was stricken from health care reform proposals. More citizens will face death panel-like decisions as a result.
Previously I thought Orwell was convoluted.
