Bush Advisory Panels Undermining Health Care Debate?

For the past several days, Republicans and their insurance industry allies have contended that new controversial breast cancer screening guidelines are an example of how Democrats will ration health care.
Yahoo Excerpt:
Republicans are seizing on this week's recommendations for fewer Pap smears and mammograms to fuel concern about government-rationed medical care - and try to chip away support by women for Predsident Barack Obama's proposed health care panel overhaul.
Think the timing or context of those reports was coincidental? On Sunday during Geraldo's Fox News Show, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) said every one of the sixteen members on the panel for health care recommendations was appointed by the Bush Administration.

The AP article above was titled "GOP: This is how rationing begins," in Saturday's Janesville Gazette. They should know, they practically wrote it.

Additional reading: Wasserman Schultz said GOP is politicizing breast cancer.

Tell me you are going to write something about the republicant's manifesto. Have you seen that thing? Talk about the new coming of the third reich. Hopefully it will splinter the GOP even further. My guess is that they will all sign onto it anyway being the hypocrits that they are. Their Reagan-god wouldn't even pass that test.

I've seen those stories including Glenn Beck's "America has to be like china" idea. I guess Mao is one of Beck's inspirations too. I think we're witnessing the end of the GOP and it appears to be splintering into two groups; one, into a cult-like American Taliban (but instead of Sharia Law, its Christian Law of course) and the other into a corporate deity Libertarian party. Personally, I don't want to give them any advice that might be construed as trying to save their souls..
