Curse you, Sarah Palin, for killing the death panels


Recommended Posts


In 2009 Sarah Palin (citing economist Thomas Sowell) warned that the only way the government would reduce the price of medical care (often misrepresented as costs) would be to withhold treatment and that under Obamacare death panels would be assigned to mete out treatment. Liberals went ape over this. The people at Politifact were so livid that they invented a Lie Of The Year award and gave it to Sarah Palin.

Calling it a lie was problematic since Obamacare had yet to pass and no one would know what was in the bill until the president signed it into law in March 2010. Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi even said we have to pass the bill in order to see what is in it. Yet 8 months before its passage, the Mensas on the left knew what was in it.

But what was wrong with Sarah Palin’s statement was not that it was false but that it was true, and the truth is poison to liberals. What she posted on Facebook on July 3, 2009:

As more Americans delve into the disturbing details of the nationalized health care plan that the current administration is rushing through Congress, our collective jaw is dropping, and we’re saying not just no, but hell no!” Palin wrote.
