Sarah Palin made comment on her Facebook page about Obamacare:
The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome 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. Such a system is downright evil.
This one statement has caused a wave of controversy and it has put the whole Obama health care proposal as disheveled as wind on a bad hair day. The end-of-life counseling language appeared in a section of the bill on cost-containment. So there really was language of a panel deciding the worthiness of life. Is that life economically worth saving for its productivity. That’s code for Tax-ability.
OBAMA DEATH PANELS

It cannot get any clearer than that. Hey, why can’t we get a Congresswoman like this in Hawai’i instead of Crazy Maize Hirono? Maybe Hirono likes the idea of having CZAR’s running the show like Obama does. No accountability.
That seems to be the Democratic playbook. Lets just Socialize Everything! Don’t communicate with constituents.
Let Them Eat CAKE!
You know what? So called conservatives like me, are confused by all the other conservatives, dissing Sarah Palin. Take this nonsensical article Charles Krauthammer wrote in the Washington Post.
We might start by asking Sarah Palin to leave the room. I’ve got nothing against her. She’s a remarkable political talent. But there are no “death panels” in the Democratic health-care bills, and to say that there are is to debase the debate.
Leave the room? What kind of comment is that? Condescending Arrogance is what that is. “I’ve got nothing against her.” What kind of comment is that. Yes, Condescending Arrogance times two.
You say this Mr. Dumbhammer and then you explain that Obama Will Create Death Panels
We also have to tell the defenders of the notorious Section 1233 of H.R. 3200 that it is not quite as benign as they pretend. To offer government reimbursement to any doctor who gives end-of-life counseling — whether or not the patient asked for it — is to create an incentive for such a chat.
What do you think such a chat would be like? Do you think the doctor will go on and on about the fantastic new million-dollar high-tech gizmo that can prolong the patient’s otherwise hopeless condition for another six months? Or do you think he’s going to talk about — as the bill specifically spells out — hospice care and palliative care and other ways of letting go of life?
DUH! What do you think it’s about?
So you slam Sarah Palin in one breath and then kiss her in the second breath. Why do you elitist intellectuals wannabes even try to understand the American people. You are far too detached to even integrate into the lives of average Americans. Belittle those that do not live within the confines of the Interstate 495 Beltway. I’m sure your cocktail buddies in Washington will give you a big slap on the back and cough up another Palin joke. Idiot.
Dr. Zero at Hot Air had a excellent rebuttal.
There’s only one group of people who needs to leave the room during that discussion, and it’s the socialist zealot in the White House, along with the craven cowards in his party. They’ve already demonstrated a remarkable gift for swiftly leaving the room when people start asking tough questions, so we’ll hardly notice when they slink out. Maybe while they’re gone, they could find the billions in Cash for Clunkers money that vanished into thin air.
On a sad note tonight, Ted Kennedy died, succumbing to inoperable brain cancer.
Mary Jo Kopechne was unavailable for comment.
Near midnight on Chappaquiddick Island, a possibly drunk and definitely married Senator Ted Kennedy takes a right turn instead of a left. His car winds up skidding off Dike Bridge and is quickly submerged upside-down in salty Poucha Pond. His passenger, RFK office secretary Mary Jo Kopechne, is knocked into the back seat. Kennedy swims to safety, whereupon he fails to rescue his companion or even simply report the incident to authorities until the following morning.
Because no autopsy is ever performed on Kopechne’s body (her body had been promptly whisked out of state) it is uncertain how long it took her to drown, if she wasn’t killed on impact. Likewise, it is never established whether Kopechne was pregnant or exhibited signs of recent sexual activity.
This is the same Ted Kennedy that ran to Russia, to the USSR, to try an circumvent the Reagan Administration’s policy to defeat Communism. Ronald Reagen WON the Cold War. Ted Kennedy tried to Destroy America.
It should also be noted that Ted Kennedy was a big proponent for Universal Health Care. Look what that’s done for Massachusetts.
Good Riddance to the worst Rubbish in American Political History.
