causal relationship is a very difficult concept for some people

First, you have to be able to show that your cause happened before your effect. Sounds easy, huh?

Let's see if a conservative can determine the cause and effect.

A. Various medical and other needs of existing AND new patients were NOT assessed OR re-assessed under Palin.
B. No care plans, or appropriate changes to care plans, were put into effect as a result of that failure under Palin.
C. Patients DIED as a result under Palin.
D. Feds stepped in due to stop the Pallincare Death Panel.

A is the cause of of "NOT B", B is the cause of C, and C is the cause of D.

Why "NOT B"? Because A should cause the creation of care plans OR changes to existing care plans. B was Palin's "killer" move, so most people would want "NOT B" because they do NOT want to die. But Palin set up the Death Panel and killed them--by NOT providing the required care.

Claiming they MIGHT NOT have lived anyone is nonsense when the system had been keeping people alive BEFORE Palincare--but the body count only began to become noticeable to the feds AFTER the Palincare Death Panel began its "Waiting Game". Tell us why YOU did not sign up for it: Palincare !!
