Fox and Republicans (but I repeat myself) are indeed churning up the death panel talk as expected, along with “rationing.” I’m for death panels — meaning medically informed decisions about end-of-life care. Rationing? Guess what? We’ve always had rationing. No services for people without insurance. No insurance for sick people. Bankruptcy by health care. And so on.

Something’s missing, though. How come Mike Ross hasn ‘t already joined the Fox chorus?
