Poll: Myths endure on healthcare, highlighting doubts on overhaul
Nearly half of Americans believe that a proposed overhaul of the healthcare system means the government will decide when to stop providing medical treatment to senior citizens, according to polling by NBC News. Some 45% said they believe the plan is likely to include such a provision that has become known as "death panels" despite bipartisan efforts to dispel the idea. Although 50% of respondents said they believe the bill was unlikely to include such a provision, the deep split over the veracity of "death panels" underscores the difficulty Democrats have had in selling their overhaul to the public, notes the Wall Street Journal.
