Republicans, Now Defenders of Government Run Medicare, Bash Government Run Public Option. HUH?

After seeing their four most outrageous myths about death panels, illegal immigrant care and rationing gain public acceptance, the RNC has cemented their insanity in the "Seniors Health Care Bill of Rights. Take it away Michael Steele:
AP —The six principles by the Republican National Committee include protecting Medicare, prohibiting rationing of health care based on age and making sure government doesn't get between seniors and their doctors.
None of the six principles relate to actual real world issues.

According to Steele, "Under the Democrats' plan, senior citizens will pay a steeper price and will have their treatment options reduced or rationed." The GOP principles also include preventing government from "interfering with end-of-life care discussions."
Again, it's that crazy voluntary "death panel" counseling session about living wills being paid for by Medicare instead of a low income senior.

Are they trying to drive us all ass bat crazy. Here's a recent MSNBC look at the RNC's "bill o' rights" and Howard Dean's take on it.
