Great moments in Socialized Medicine vol. MMDCXXVIII

All that talk about "death panels" is just a bunch of nonsense cooked up in the fevered imagination of a stupid snowbilly twit from the hinterlands, right? Right?

A grandfather who beat cancer was wrongly told the disease had returned and left to die at a hospice which pioneered a controversial 'death pathway'.

Doctors said there was nothing more they could do for 76-year- old Jack Jones, and his family claim he was denied food, water and medication except painkillers.

He died within two weeks. But tests after his death found that his cancer had not come back and he was in fact suffering from pneumonia brought on by a chest infection.

To his family's horror, they were told he could have recovered if he'd been given the correct treatment
Hey, but at least his health care was free, huh? And besides, with an old guy like that out of the way, just think of the savings!
