The five biggest lies in the health care debate

  1. You'll have no choice in what health benefits you receive.
  2. No chemo for older Medicare patients.
  3. Illegal immigrants will get free health insurance.
  4. Death Panels will decide who lives.
  5. The government will set doctors' wages.

LIES! ALL LIES! Newsweek breaks them down this week, with actual facts from the proposed laws. (This is a follow-up to an earlier article with Seven Falsehoods about Health Care, where they try to debunk even more ridiculous claims.)

Here's the actual bill, where folks should go to verify or disprove any wacko claims they might hear- especially before they repeat them or shout them out at town halls.

If the last month is any indication, more wacko claims will be forthcoming.
