Radio hosts use Kennedy's death to fearmonger on health care rationing

Have they no shame?

Media Matters reports: Conservative radio hosts Rush Limbaugh and Tom Marr have used Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's death to attack health care reform, baselessly suggesting that if reform passes, elderly cancer patients -- like Kennedy was -- will be "denied" treatments or their treatments will be "rationed." Limbaugh claimed that Kennedy "chose to exercise as many options as were available to him to prolong his life" and asserted that "to put his name on a health care bill that denies that to other people" is "hypocrisy."

The truth is that Senator Edward Kennedy wanted all American to have the same level of health care that he as a United States Senator had. See the video below:
