Death Panels

Palin was right. ObamaCare’s “Death Panels” Begin.

During the 2009-2010 congressional health care reform debate about the president’s signature law, ObamaCare  --  passed without a single Republican Senator or a single Republican Representative voting for it  --  Sarah Palin issued a “statement on the current health care debate” which warned about ObamaCare’s “death panels.”

Palin wrote, on August 7, 2009, seven months before Obama’s socialized medicine scheme was signed into law:  “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.”

And the GOP Winner is…

It’s come down to four Republican candidates. They have survived the rigors of a presidential campaign--and there are many. It’s gotten nasty at times, with candidates attacking candidates of the same party. Something that Reagan warned ominously against. But that was when party was sacred, and the person to beat wasn’t Obama.

It wasn’t that Obama was a good president. After presiding over the biggest deficit in US history, he has the US teetering on the closest approach a country founded with a democratic-republic ever came to pure socialism.

But the remaining “four” Republicans have refused to bow to the minor option of ‘green energy’. More importantly, all are committed to reduce taxes, cut government spending, and cut ‘Big Government’ as a whole.

One is particularly good at business dealings, and money handling. One is a specifically good cost-cutter, spendthrift, and bean counter. The other is a specialized orator, who understands all the ins and outs of daily politics.
