Excellent interview here.
The media has gone crazy with this idea that the government wants to euthanize old and handicapped people, and that these things are in legislation before the Congress. Yesterday, I posted quotes from Rush Limbaugh repeating the same lies.
Today, I saw an interview with Senator Johnny Isakson (R-GA) about the issue. From the article:
How did this become a question of euthanasia?
I have no idea. I understand -- and you have to check this out -- I just had a phone call where someone said Sarah Palin's web site had talked about the House bill having death panels on it where people would be euthanized. How someone could take an end of life directive or a living will as that is nuts. You're putting the authority in the individual rather than the government. I don't know how that got so mixed up.
Read the whole interview and stop listening to the misleading liars who are telling you anything different.

How anyone can repeat this with a straight face is beyond me.
