Fox News host Brian Kilmeade bolstered Sarah Palin’s claim that health care reform would establish “death panels” to determine who deserves care and who deserves euthanasia. “Are seniors going to be in front of a death panel? And just as you think, ‘Okay, that’s ridiculous’ then you realize that there’s provisions in there that seniors in the last lap of their life will be sitting there going to a panel possibly discussing what the best thing for them is,” said Kilmeade.
