Alle Menschen Mussen Sterben

It is disgraceful that opponents of health care reform are exploiting people's fear of the inevitable to undermine a really good idea: Medicare funding of end-of-life consultations.

We all will ultimately die, and I, for one, would like to do so as painlessly, and with as much dignity, as possible. Once I am irreversibly ill, I want neither ventilators nor feeding tubes to keep me alive, and I know enough to say so in an advance directive. Others should know they have the ability to say so too. For those who want the tubes, that is their business.

As for those who argue that government health care will incentivize euthanasia, well, the incentives are of course already there, because all seniors have government insurance.

In general, I detest ad homonym, and hope that I have pretty much kept it out of this blog. But Sarah Palin is just plain evil.
