Sarah Palin Won’t Let ‘Death Panels’ Die

Sarah Palin clearly feels vindicated. In a video posted online Tuesday, the former vice presidential candidate suggests she was right when she predicted that the Affordable Care Act would lead to “death panels” of bureaucrats deciding who’s worthy of health care and who’s not.

Set to electric guitar riffs and featuring granny being pushed off a clip and a roaring grizzly bear apparently just as outraged as the former Alaska governor, the video includes short news clips sewn together to prove that the “death panels” lie has turned out to be true.

The problem, of course, is that it’s not. As has been explained here, here, here, here, here and here, the new health care law contains no death panels. The Independent Payment Advisory Board, a government panel that may determine some Medicare payments rates, is expressly banned from rationing care. End-of-life counseling, a provision in an early version of a health reform bill that would pay doctors to talk to Medicare patients about living wills, was stripped from the final version.

OBAMA HIRED A "FULL FLEDGED MANAGER" FOR HIS OBAMACARE ABOUT TWO YEARS BACK. NBC, CBS AND FOX CARRIED A BRIEF CONVERSATION BETWEEN THIS BOSS AND A QUESTIONER ABOUT THE "DEATH PANEL" ISSUE.     [THE STORY WAS ALSO POSTED ON THE WASHINGTON POST, THE BOSTON GLOBE AND THE ATLANTA JOURNAL CONSTITUTION. THE THEN, TOP MAN, REPLIED IMMEDIATELY WITH THE FOLLOWING:  "A HEALTH CARE SYSTEM SUCH AS WE HAVE ***CANNOT*** BE OPERATED APART FROM A MEANS OF LOWERING COSTS RELATIVE TO THE ELDERLY, CHRONICALLY  ILL PATIENTS."  

HE MAY HAVE SPILLED BEANS THAT OBAMA HAD HIDDEN UNDER THE BED, BECAUSE HE LEFT HIS LOFTY PERCH A FEW WEEKS LATER-- GIVING NO REASON FOR HIS RESIGNATION.  YOU CANNOT WORK FOR BARACK UNLESS YOU ARE A TRIED--AND-- TESTED,  PROFESSIONAL LIAR.

Advance nearly 3 months since this article appeared and Time's own Mark Halprin admits death panels do exist in the Affordable Care Act.  Interesting!

This is the direct quote from Sarah Palin: 

Seniors and the disabled "will have to stand in front of Obama's 'death panel' so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their 'level of productivity in society,' whether they are worthy of health care."

For the millionth time, she didn't say the Death Panel was in the bill.  Sh stated that Bureaucrats would force rationing, and that is true.   As for the End of Life Counseling, it were her Facebook that got Sen. Grassley to remove it from the bill.

Get a clue Granny Sarah. If you really want the world's attention just swing around on a wrecking ball. Those GILFS would really love it.

Thanks for the laughs, kiddo. Let's talk again when you're old enough to drive.

What's the big deal? She's merely following the GOP playbook, chapter 1, page 1 and I quote: A lie told consistently and loudly enough eventually will become the truth in the minds of many.

Pretty, popular, politically astute Gov. Sarah Palin has proven to be perceptive, even prophetic in all her  economic & social prognostications since 2008. She is way ahead of the curve; and, she is beautiful.

Weird to me she's so worried about rationing and death panels. The obvious point that peoples' health care is already being rationed by wealth doesn't seem to ever sink in, huh?

Liberal acolyte's gather to commiserate over yet another well-received message from Sarah Palin.  Here in the bowels of a fading publication they find distant comfort in each others keyboards.

Meanwhile, the rest of America approves and agree's wholeheartedly with the sentiments of the Governor's message.  In the short hours since her post, thousands upon thousands of additional patriots have joined along with the 3.6 million Americans that already support this woman.  They recognize her resolve.  Her unwillingness to break to the years of hateful vitriol endlessly strewn by those who fear her consistent message to return government to the people.  To remove from power the establishment cronyists who serve only their party, never their country.  Palin crosses political divides and reaches people.

We are wasting lots of bandwidth - mental and physical, allowing the name Sarah Palin to appear at all; other than the look she had, there ain't nothing upstairs (execpt for the rumor that she has a new rack).  You've made your millions, go away, Palin!

And then immediately, desperately backpedals away from that "death panel" lie after he's called out on it.

@DennisMcHale Sarah Palin DID SAY DEATH PANEL and seniors and the disabled would have to basically plead for their lives in front of bureacrats.

@RedXIV @Billradman If what you say is true, and I haven't seen that he has, I really don't need Halprin's word for it.  I've got the actions of Kathleen Sebilius who served as a one-person death panel when she denied a request by a 10-year-old Philadelphia girl to get a new pair of lungs.  Thanks to a judge who is far wiser than Sebilius, overturned her decision, and that little girl is alive today! She'd be dead right now if Sebilius' decision remained in effect.  No death panel?  Think not!

@BobJan @IIzThatIIz Yes quitter governor with a great rack and ass. i bet she does not quit in the sack. maybe if Bill clinton was married to sarah instead of hillary he would not have gotten the BJ in the Oval office from Monica. wait then again it is Billy Bob.

@DanielJames @Openminded1 @BradFoley @IIzThatIIz first of all dummy,i do not support her, if you read all my post,it has nothing to do with support,it has to do with her looks which I happen to admire since i am a man who likes good looking women. i do not know what you preference is so i will not comment just yet. but since you think you have to defend Brad maybe I do know. Another liberal moron you girls are every where.
