At last, a Republican takes on Palin over health-care claims

"It does us no good to incite fear in people by saying that there's these end-of-life provisions, these death panels," Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, told an Anchorage health-care forum on Tuesday. "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."
