I am not sure (but I think so) if it made it into Health Care Reform, but there is no denying that many liberals want what the right referred to as “death panels”. Of course, not death panels, but a method of determinating what treatments are not effective, including treatments that give little value for a high price.
Conservatives continue to insist that the first Health Care Reform that should be passed is malpractice reform including limits on jury awards. Presumably, such limits would include cases where death was the result.
Who wants to put a dollar value on a life?
