Editor's Note: After last night's AC360°, many people wrote in with commentary on Anderson's interview with Dr. Jack Kevorkian. We also heard thanks about the segment on where your tax dollars go. What else do you have to say about the show? We want your feedback!
Loved tonight’s show. Admire Dr Kevorkian for his courage, honesty and common sense.
I just caught the end of your show with dr. Kevorkian. I applaud Dr. Kevorkian for standing up for people with terminal illnesses that are suffering. What right does the state have to force a person to spend their last days, weeks, months or years suffering until they die? I am a nurse and have seen many patients and even members of my family suffer terribly. I have emphysema. My mother died from emphysema and lung cancer. My father died from lung cancer and my sister has been given only a couple of months to live from lung cancer. I have personally known a few people that were suffering with illnesses and they shot themselves in the head. Why do people have to suffer so, and not have the right to die peacefully, painfully and with dignity? i do not want to die confined to a bed for god knows how long and gasping for air but the state says i have to. How sad.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE show the segment SEVERAL TIMES regarding the breakdown of how each $1 of tax money is spent!!!....I think that REALLY shows in the simplest way for EVERYONE to understand what we need to be focused on when we vote!!! And remind people that taxes are a NECESSITY in our society!! PLEASE~this was the most straight forward, educational media reporting I have seen in a long time...NO OPINION~FACTS!!!!!
Thank you for the "Keeping them Honest" on the US tax burden compared to other countries and historically. Please do more of this sort of thing.
