CORRECTION to AM Off the Cuff
August 17, 2009 • 1:51PM

In this morning's Off the Cuff, we erroneously reported that President Obama's broadly reported intention to "give up" the public insurance option in his health care reform package, meant that he was also giving up the "death panel" provision. In fact, while there is no direct connection between the two, the "death panel" proposal—specifically, the IMAC independent board of experts which would serve as a Nazi T4 board to decide who lives and who dies—remains at the core of the President's proposal.
