No wonder the Progressives, Obama, and the LSM hate Sarah Palin. Every time Palin is excoriated about something in the lame stream media you can bet she’s right.
It has become a dead give away. The harder the likes of Matthews, Couric, Cooper, and the MSM “gang” push, punish, and attempt to destroy Palin and her character the greater the chances you can bet she’s nailed it.
Take the death panels for instance…first you see them and you don’t. In the health care bill (67% of America hates and doesn’t want) one moment they are there and then presto/chango they’re gone! Ah, but not for long!
In typical Obama fashion, if they can’t get something accomplished through legal channels (say like legislation) then side step Congress and ignore the will of the people.
Just dictate through fiat and regulations and the death panels are back!
Kathleen Sebelius, head of the Department of Health & Human Services, has ruled that effective January 1, 2011, all Medicare & Medicaid doctors will be paid to provide “end of life” counseling to the elderly and/or those younger and poorer patients deemed “infirm” to help them decide if life is still worth living. All this will be provided yearly, as part of Obama’s new annual, creepily-euphemistically entitled “wellness” checkup.
And Sebelius’ supporters are trying to keep the implementation a secret! Rep. Earl Blumenauer, (D-OR), recently sent supporters of the new rule an e-mail warning them “not to broadcast this accomplishment (!) out to any of your lists, even if they are supporters because e-mails can too easily be forwarded.”
Ms. Sebelius has apparently declared herself dictator and overthrown not only the will of the people, but also that of Congress, issuing secret, death-dealing orders behind closed doors. The ObamaCare bill originally contained provisions for the much derided “Death Panels” designed to persuade, pressure and coerce the elderly and infirm into making life or death decisions only every five years.
Now add this to what Ron Panzer, founder of Hospice Patients Alliance, has to say about the government’s directives for hospice care. This looks like a perfect storm to me.
U.S. government rules, which supposedly protect patient privacy, have created a climate of fear among medical personnel to prevent them from reporting deliberate killing of hospice patients.
Panzer has received masses of complaints and pleas for help from patients and their families. The institutions are not fulfilling the gentler and useful function of hospice to care for the incurable and terminal patient. He says that tens of thousands of patients who are not otherwise “near death” are being killed in private institutions, to decrease their costs and increase profits, while the government “saves money” by not having to contribute to patients’ care in hospitals. Panzer warns that the rationing designed into Obamacare will greatly intensify the problem.
I am in no position to investigate what Panzer is alleging, however, the little digging I have done thus far leads me to believe his statements are true. If we had any real investigative journalism left, this is a one hell of a story to pursue.
Any investigative journalists out there, not sucking on Obama Kool-Aid?
