Many scoff at the term “death panel” — Sarah Palin’s morbid, if misleading description of the powers contained in U.S. government health-care legislation back in 2009. Yet there was a grain of truth in that infamous noun phrase. The fact of the matter is that all health-care systems have “death panels” of one sort or another. It’s just a question of who sits on them — bureaucrats, insurers or doctors — and what label we put on their functions.
