Smartest man in the world endorses “death panels”

Contrary to the statements of Investor’s Business Daily, who said recently (and inaccurately)…

“The controlling of medical costs in countries such as Britain through rationing, and the health consequences thereof, are legendary. The stories of people dying on a waiting list or being denied altogether read like a horror script…

“People such as scientist Stephen Hawking wouldn’t have a chance in the UK, where the National Health Service would say the life of this brilliant man, because of his physical handicaps, is essentially worthless.”

…it seems Great Britain’s govenment-run death panels never caught up with Stephen Hawking. Remarkably, he seems quite happy with his single-payer health care.

But then, who are you more likely to trust: some fancy pants theoretical physicist/cosmologist/mathematician or fine upstanding folks like these?
