GOP Clears the Air with Poll About Obamacare Killing Old People, Republicans Etc.
The Republican National Committee has been sending a "2009 Future of American Health Survey" around to folks down south. Among the questions:
It has been suggested that the government could use voter registration to determine a person's political affiliation, prompting fears that GOP voters might be discriminated against for medical treatment in a Democrat-imposed health care rationing system. Does this possibility concern you?
Can't wait to see the "yes" and "no" split on that one. David Weigel finds other questions in the poll, including "Do you believe that your health care decisions should be made by you and your doctor, and not government bureaucrats in Washington, D.C.?" and "Do you believe it is right for the government to use age and life expectancy as criteria for determining access to health care?"
At the end of the poll, as a reward, respondents are allowed to give a contribution to the RNC.
