BOEHNER WAS FOR "DEATH PANELS" BEFORE HE WAS AGAINST THEM

Posted By on Fri, Aug 14, 2009 at 3:38 PM

Time's Swampland blog finds yet another way to underscore the utter lunacy of the right-wing's obsession with "death panels":

Remember the 2003 Medicare prescription drug bill, the one that passed with the votes of 204 GOP House members and 42 GOP Senators? Anyone want to guess what it provided funding for? Did you say counseling for end-of-life issues and care? Ding ding ding!!

Ohio's Congressman John Boehner, who helped get this crazy train rolling, voted for that bill.

I'll give the righties this much, they are motivated. Having reached the bottom, they are now furiously digging. — Frank Lewis
