    Don't insurance companies essentially have "death panels" where they choose to reject claims initially to minimize their need to pay out? They look for every possible loop-hole to reject a claim. The people subjected to that process are the fortunate ones. I went for many years without health insurance and would have LOVED to have a death panel.

    "Ghastly as it may seem to say this, the terror attackólike the original "day of infamy" which brought an end to the Great Depressionócould even do some economic good. [...] the driving force behind the economic slowdown has been a plunge in business investment. Now, all of a sudden, we need some new office buildings. As I've already indicated, the destruction isn't big compared with the economy, but rebuilding will generate at least some increase in business spending."
