What ‘mercy' to expect?

The Associated Press news story “Mercy killer shown same mercy from judge” (March 30 and TribLIVE.com) is an excellent example of how not to report the news. It is blatant editorialization.

An Arizona man who shot his disabled wife to death was given probation instead of a jail sentence. The “mercy” this man showed his wife was premeditated murder. The “mercy” he received was the freedom to walk away. They are so not the same.

Which “mercy” can we expect from ObamaCare?
