Investor’s Business Daily has the scoop: Steven Hawking would be KILLED under socialized medicine.

How can anyone expect to debate these people about their ideas?

  • Perhaps, it's stories like this one from Oregon that makes the issue: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-1205138

    t is something that came to blight 64-year-old Barbara Wagner's last days. Diagnosed with lung cancer in 2005, the former bus driver vowed to fight the disease so she could spend as long as possible with her family.

    Even after her doctor warned last year that she had less than six months left, she refused to give up, pinning all her hopes on a new life-prolonging treatment.

    But her request, at the beginning of last year, for the £2,500-a-month drug was refused by Oregon's state-run health plan as being too expensive. Instead, she was offered lethal medication to end her life.

    'It was horrible,' Barbara told reporters. 'I got a letter in the mail that basically said if you want to take the pills we will help you get them from a doctor and we will stand there and watch you die – but we won't give you the medicine to live.

    A govt run health program that refused treatment but offered help to die. Crazy that happened in the left wingnuttery of Oregon.

  • That's funny… I know a lot of people that have been denied treatment as "too expensive" by private insurance… what's your point Craig? Plus, that is quite a logical jump to killing Steven Hawkings….
