I know this hasn't occurred to you because you are evil deficient, but think of all the profit possible in the use of death panels. There are a lot of people getting checks from uncle who would stop sucking money out of SS or retirement if the death panel decided, "What the heck, let 'em die." Remember Sibelius and the eleven year old girl who would die if she could not get new lungs. Yep, "Let her die. Some will have to died." To make this work, I guess. But killing the right people will be downright profitable, if you think of tax revenues as profit, and they do and they did think of this, I betcha.
