As the “death panel” claims are debunked time and time again, Fox News may be backtracking and using terms like “De Facto Death Panels.”
BECK: The death panel isn’t a firing squad. Sarah Palin made a point — I guess you could say in an inflammatory way. But when you implement a government health system, as they have found out in the U.K. and everywhere else on the planet, you are left with no other choice. That’s just the way it is. Rationing is inevitable, and they know it. When — when will someone in the media expose all of the lies?
BECK: Anyway, tell me about — am I wrong in saying, without any inflammatory speech here — don’t call them death panels, just let’s call them what they are. You have a certain amount of money and a certain amount of people. You can’t — they don’t — you can’t give everything to everybody. Isn’t it inevitable that you have to make tough choices?
