US breast cancer drug decision 'marks start of death panels'


www.telegraph.co.uk

America's health watchdog is considering revoking its approval of the drug Avastin for use on women with advanced breast cancer, leading to accusations that it will mark the start of 'death panel' drug rationing.

This is exactly what those of us in the US have been fearing most of "Obamacare" The government and insurance companies have no right to determine what drugs are "too expensive" to be used to save someone's life. Fortunately, some states and even some members in congress are taking steps to squash "obamacare"

First ObamaCare was not a tax, now in court arguments, it is.

Death panels, fear mongering except for the new decisions to do what? Cause death due to cost.

What else was said, oh you will get to keep your doctor. Gone.

You will be able to keep your insurance. Gone.

It will save money. Wrong.

It will not affect employment. Wrong.

The progressives are RUNNING from these threads, because they can only lie some more or obfuscate.

The recommendation has been praised by many cancer experts and by advocates for breast cancer patients.

"The FDA should never have approved Avastin for breast cancer to begin with," said Fran Visco of the National Breast Cancer Coalition. "We don't see evidence of benefit, but we do see evidence of harm."

It has nothing to do with "death panels."

ill bet you feel special and unique by regurgitating age old talking poitns from conservative pundits.


Until you forget that Death Panels don't exist. They've been proven not to exist. They were created to trick people like you, and in your case, it worked.


Wake up and smell the coffee man. Death Panels Do Not Exist.

If you are going by this, then the death panels started about 5 years ago when Avandia killed my mother.

How long you think the drugs you 'take everyday', haven't been killing us, a few poor saps at a time?

This is the problem with Johnny come lately's...

As if EVERYTHING all of a sudden, is one big conspiracy.
It has been this way for quite awhile. At least the past 20 years.

For every new drug introduced, 2 are recalled.
I live here in Florida where the attorney firms circle like sharks. There is a class action suit almost daily for one drug or another.

I get a kick out of the ads...
