comment “Death Panels” and “Job creators”: Is there a word for these?
Hadn't heard of "dog-whistle phrases". What a great way of describing them. MetaEd's "Weasel words" suggestion in the comments was good as well.

comment What is the correct usage of “whom”?
A handy trick: you can check this by replacing who/whom with "he" or "him". If "he" works, use "who". If "him" works, use "whom". e.g. "This image shows a patient. He is..." It would sound incorrect if you said "This image shows a patient. Him is..."

comment How should I contract this sentence?
Are you talking about literal weight in this sentence? I can't tell without more context, but the phrase "weight of services" might be awkward-sounding English if you mean something like "breadth of services".
