Death Panel Bill passes Texas Senate, moves to House

Death Panel Bill SB 303, which allows hospitals to impose "do not attempt resuscitation" (DNAR) orders against patients without their consent and even without their knowledge, was rushed through the Texas Senate today despite opposition by the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons (AAPS) and by virtually every other leading pro-patient group. This bill transfers power from patients and their personal physicians to hospital administration, which can then impose DNAR orders without any legal accountability.

I hope a couple of the first patients they use it on are George H.W. Bush and H. Ross Perot.

Wait... What?!

by Seriously? Seriously.reply 404/25/2013

Who, or what group, or which party is behind this?

by Seriously? Seriously.reply 504/25/2013

R5, there are effectively no Democrats in the Texas House, so...

by Seriously? Seriously.reply 604/25/2013

R5 I know, I know.

Doesn't this just prove their pathological projection? For all their bitching about non-existent "death panels" in ObamaCare... they actually were pissed there WEREN'T any? So they're putting them in at the state level?

by Seriously? Seriously.reply 804/25/2013

The insurance industry lobby most likely wrote this legislation.

by Seriously? Seriously.reply 904/25/2013

Texas: because we just can't kill people fast enough!

by Seriously? Seriously.reply 1004/25/2013

Texans are stupid, and I think the Texas Legislature is playing on this fact, by passing a death panel provision in their healthcare laws so they can blame the Democrats.

Is this the gambit?

by Seriously? Seriously.reply 1104/25/2013

Not all Texans are stupid, but certainly majority that elected the legislature.

by Seriously? Seriously.reply 1204/25/2013

And the majority who call the West blast an "accident."

The ones who hate oversight and accountability.

by Seriously? Seriously.reply 1304/25/2013

Whatever it is, it's apparently endorsed by Texas right-to-lifers.

by Seriously? Seriously.reply 1404/25/2013

I take that back. The Catholics apparently think it's okay but Texas Right to Life doesn't.

I'm sure what's at the heart of this is that hospitals and health insurers in Texas don't want to be bothered with the costs of prolonging the lives of poors whom they could just as easily let die.

We must thin the hers of the underclass. It is the only way.

by Seriously? Seriously.reply 1604/25/2013

You are obviously under the influence there, GOOP.

by Seriously? Seriously.reply 1704/25/2013

gee I forget my point I think I meant "herds" of the underclass....It is all so foggy...I haven't eaten since November to prepare for the People cover photo shoot.
