I'm beginning to wonder if truth has anything at all to do with her worldview:
The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s “death panel” so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their “level of productivity in society,” whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.

Such a system would, indeed, be evil. But nothing in ANY of the proposals under discussion actually resembles this, or even could be stretched into anything that could possibly morph into something like this. And no one making these arguments can point to anything in any proposal that actually would come to this. So why isn't she demanding proof of such allegations when people suggest them to her? Shouldn't she be pointing this out for what it really is, a baseless lie? Can she really believe it? How stupid is she? Worse, how stupid are the people who are listening to her?
