Again folks I can't stress enough the act of presenting just the facts to these nutjobs on the fringe. As you can see that's exactly what Jon Stewart does with Betsy McCaughey(R-Lying Ass Witch)She lied about the Clinton Health care bill now she is lying about the Obama bill(big surprise). I love how Stewart refutes her so wonderfully then her response is to thumb through the book and find some page and reads it then pulls a different meaning right out of her ass despite what's really written there.The funny thing is she also tries to appear to be an objective researcher. The concept that McCaughey seems to be unable to get her head around -- or that she believes she can manipulate voter opinion over the idea of adherence in end-of-life planning. She seemed to clearly indicate that she thought "adhering" to a living will means that the patient can't change his/her mind at any time during the course of his/her life; that once it's written, you've had your one crack and there are no do overs" This is, in a word, is F**cking crazy, because the truth is:
a) A living will only goes into effect once a patient is permanently incapacitated to the extent that no amount of medical care will bring the patient back into a state where they can proffer consent to attempt further life-saving procedures.
b) When the bill talks about adherence, this refers to the medical professionals adhering to the instructions in the living will, including, as Stewart points out again and again, adhering to any calls for "life sustaining medical procedures."
McCaughey insists at one point during this interview that the proof of her claims can be seen in the fact that the section in question was stripped from the bill. They took it out! THIS HAS TO HAVE BEEN A DASTARDLY PLOT, FOILED BY BETSY MCCAUGHEY. Yes. That must have been it.
Also: she believes that the government has a grand plan to literally end the lives of senior citizens. SURELY, THIS PLAN IS FOOLPROOF.
