Paul Krugman explains “Death Panels” (3/30/10, not in CCTimes)

Fortunately for us, the liberal CCTimes doesn’t run the liberal “economist” Paul Krugman’s columns. However, we found this explanation by Krugman of how ObamaCare will cut costs very revealing (and probably accurate):

The Advisory Panel which has the ability to make more or less binding judgments on saying this particular expensive treatment, actually doesn’t do any good medically and so we are not going to pay for it. That is actually going to save quit a lot of money. We don’t know how much yet. The CBO gives it very little credit but, but most, most of the health care economists I talk to think that’s going be a really, uh a really major cost saving.
