“I’ll be honest with you,” said Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-AK, according to a story in the Anchorage Daily News. “There are things that are in this bill that are bad enough that we don’t need to be making things up.”…

“It does us no good to incite fear in people by saying that there’s these end-of-life provisions, these death panels,” Murkowski, said, according to the paper. “Quite honestly, I’m so offended at that terminology because it absolutely isn’t (in the bill). There is no reason to gin up fear in the American public by saying things that are not included in the bill.”
