Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Another fascinating look at the healthcare "debate," this one reportedly from a Patients First rally in Pueblo, in which a speaker claims that proposed legislation would authorize "end-of-life orders" he likens to the atrocities of Pol Pot and Hitler. Does that mean federal stimulus dollars will be going to build crematoriums and poison-gas showers? Of course, this frighten-the-seniors strategy could backfire if thousands of them have heart attacks and die because of such threats. Might want to dial it down just a leeetle bit....
