A quarter of head and neck surgeons think Obamacare has death panels

The Washington Post, December 20, 2013
Obamacare's death panels are alive and well -- at least among the imaginations of America's head and neck surgeons. The journal Otolaryngology -- Head and Neck Surgery recently sent a questionnaire to 9,972 head and neck surgeons that had 10 basic questions about the health-care law. It's one that Kasier Family Foundation created in 2010, which you can take yourself here. The 647 responses that came back were ... depressing. Twenty-seven percent of respondents thought that the health-care law includes a "government panel [that] makes end-of-life care decisions for Medicare."
