Dems rally around Sarah Palin

and call for an end to the death panels in Obama care.

 

snip-

ObamaCare’s cost-cutting board — memorably called a “death panel” by Sarah  Palin — is facing growing opposition from Democrats who say it will harm people  on Medicare.

Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean drew attention to  the board designed to limit Medicare cost growth when he called for its repeal  in an op-ed late last month.

 

Dean was quickly criticized by supporters of the Independent Payment Advisory  Board (IPAB), who noted his ties to the healthcare industry as an adviser to a  major D.C. lobbying firm.

 

But the former Vermont governor is not the only Democrat looking to kill the  panel.

A wave of vulnerable Democrats over the past three months has signed on to  bills repealing the board’s powers, including Sen. Mark Pryor (Ark.) and Reps.  Ron Barber (Ariz.), Ann Kirkpatrick (Ariz.), Kyrsten Sinema (Ariz.) and  Elizabeth Esty (Conn.).

Re: Dems rally around Sarah Palin

So if your private health insurance decides not to cover certain medical procedures, they in effect have death panels that determine that.

 

Like a close relative that needed a skin graft and insurance would not pay. After some sparring they did but they did not want to.  So if a person has a hole in his skin that needs to be replaced, that is not considered covered. Evidently their death panel thought he should live with a hole in his skin.

So now you admit Sarah Palin was right and death panels are a good thing as long as they are run by Almighty Government.

No, again you show your ignorance. We say, that by your definition, insurance companies right now have death panels. They determine what they will and will not pay for so that is a death panel.

I couldn't agree more hobby. Nothing has chased the small family farmer from the land more than Almighty Government and their social insurance programs. The bigger and richer you are the more uncle Sam gives to you.

Well, then don't buy any insurance. H3ll the fine is less than the premium, right? I really don't care what you do.
