Peter Orszag Explains the Mechanics, Fiscal Benefits of ObamaCare’s Death Panel
Good call on that ‘Lie of the Year‘, Politifact. You really nailed that one! Oh, but hold on – now we learn from Peter Orszag* it will take an act of Congress and the President’s signature (on a case-by-case basis) to override decisions made by ObamaCare’s main death panel. Sorry, I meant to say the Independent Payment Advisory Board. Because there are no death panels. | Read More »
What If Your Privacy And Maybe Your Life Was On The Line ?
Here we go again……….. Kenny, you have got to st……… Whaddya mean, ‘here we go again’ ? People can deal with this stuff……. They’re just not seeing a big enough picture to be able to consider the implications of it all. Oh come on, the average American cant deal with anything right now past their own freak-outs on their job, plus anything R*n P**l, S*r*h | Read More »
My first thought was ‘Death panels,’ too…
…as per the first comment in this Hot Air post about Kent Pankow. But that’s absurd: we’ve been told by all sorts of people that such things could never, ever, ever happen under a government-run universal health care regime. Suffering from brain cancer, Kent Pankow was literally forced to go to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. for lifesaving surgery — at a cost to | Read More »
Kudos to Erick for three of the most important posts of the year.
Making the Death Panels Permanent Objecting to the Super Majority We Are No Longer a Nation of Laws. Senate Sets Up Requirement for Super-Majority to Ever Repeal Obamacare This should be the line in the sand. When Governor Palin pointed out that buried in the 2000 page gateway to tyranny was authorization for a death panel, even she may have | Read More »
What Constitutes a Fight?
When someone says the word “fight,” most of us see images of Ali and Frazier, or perhaps scenes from the movie Rocky. Certainly the fighting of soldiers at Normandy or Iwo Jima come to mind, maybe even a simple fight among high school boys where someone walks away with a bloody nose – or if even talking only about rhetoric, something akin to Patton’s famous | Read More »
Making the Death Panels Permanent
There are always, when some of us on the right blow up an issue like Harry Reid’s rules changes, some people who say we’re overreacting. I have to say I think they miss the point. First, I do agree with Gabriel Malor that “a quick glance at the Library of Congress website and Google shows that language similar to that used here to except these | Read More »
Capuano vs the Boogeyman
After watching th Pats dispatch the Jets, I felt duty bound to sit through 60 Minutes and their segment on health care reform. Considering the demographics of their viewers, the team at 60 minutes went in a very controversial direction. Basically, the story argued that we wouldn’t need death panels(but, they’re coming) if Grandma and Grandpa did their patriotic duty by refusing care and dying | Read More »
Government Panel decides on the very 1st rationing for women…
Sarah Palin WARNED of “death” panels but it actually is “dying” panels. A Government Panel has decided that women from the age of 40-50 NO LONGER need mammograms I don’t see the REVIEW on a Man’s early detection test I certainly don’t want either men or women being DENIED an early detection test by health insurance companies based on a Government panels suggestion and yet | Read More »
“Death Panels” Don’t Die in House “Health” Bill
Well, it is Halloween and the time of Zombies — from the Associated Press: “It’s alive. The Medicare end-of-life planning provision that 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin said was tantamount to “death panels” for seniors is staying in the latest Democratic health care bill unveiled Thursday.”
Tell me again how death panels are an impossibility.
Better yet, tell Hazel Fenton, who nearly died at the hands of the Magical Space Unicorn universal health care system that the British have, and the Left wants us to have. AN 80-year-old grandmother who doctors identified as terminally ill and left to starve to death has recovered after her outraged daughter intervened. Hazel Fenton, from East Sussex, is alive nine months after medics ruled | Read More »
Keith Olbermann, Heal Thyself
Of hypocrisy and straight up Cuckoo Pants-ism. I’ll give you one thing; at least you were honest when you named your display tonight a “Special” Special Comment. Dear Keith Olbermann: You Want to Talk About Death? Three words: Roe V. Wade. Yeah, I thought so. THAT life and death doesn’t count, right, Keith? Therefore: Shaddup, SIR. Thanks! Oh, and have your Lefty Talking Points Parrots | Read More »
Could You Hurry Up And Die Already, Bob?
I should hasten to point out that I bear no personal animus toward the honorable Robert Byrd, the elder statesman from the great state of West Virginia. And I take no pleasure in the news that the distinguished nonagenarian suffered a fall that has landed him in the hospital. But the time has come for the Senate chamber to clear out its oldest bit of | Read More »
Sarah Palin Spanks Obama On The Eve Of His Big Dog And Pony Show With Congress
Sarah Palin hit Barack Obama and his crew with a double dose of good old common sense on Tuesday. She opened the day from her powerful Facebook page with a reprint of written testimony she has given the New York State Senate. In her testimony, addressed to Senator Reverend Ruben Diaz, Chair, New York Senate Aging Committee, Sarah gives a point by point breakdown of | Read More »
Barack Obama’s Dr. Death Cuts And Runs When Confronted About His Nazi-Like Death Panels, And Other Bedtime Stories About Czars!
In the above video, panelists warn of the revival of eugenics under Barack Obama’s government health care takeover, through the denial of care to millions who would be judged not fit to live, just as in Nazi Germany. Historian Anton Chaitkin does a wonderful job of exposing Dr. Death, who then realizes he has other business to attend to, and bails out before he really | Read More »
About Those Death Panels
I mean, what could possibly go wrong? The Veterans Affairs Department recently sent out 2,500 letters to veterans informing them that they had been diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Unfortunately, according to the National Gulf War Resource , over 1,200 of the recipients incorrectly received the letter. Responses to receiving the letter were as would be expected.
