Time Editor: Obama Also Lied About Death Panels ‘Built’ Into Obamacare

 

 

 

 

” On August 7, 2009, one former Alaskan Governor said this about Obamacare, “seniors and the disabled ‘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.”  It was roundly dismissed as crazy by the political left.  In fact, it was Politifact’s 2009 Lie of The Year.

  Four years later,  MSNBC contributor Mark Halperin admitted yesterday on the Steve Malzberg Show for Newsmax TV that death panels are included in Obamacare. And that they’ll be used to control costs.

STEVE MALZBERG: I think they focused on the death panels which will be coming, call them what you will. Rationing is part of it.

MARK HALPERIN: I agree. Huge. It’s going to be a huge issue, and that’s something else about which the President was not fully forthcoming and straightforward.”

 

 

Once again the truth wills out . Despite the best efforts of the MSM and the career liars of the Democratic party the facts have become known and they are as Sarah Palin and other prominent conservative figures on the right have maintained for years . Rationed care is built into Obamacare and rationed care is a de facto death panel .

   The fact is that you the individual will not be in charge of deciding what medical care is available to your terminally ill loved ones . The decision of life and death will be left up to a government appointed bureaucracy to which there is no appeal . Don’t you feel safer already ? 

 While it should be obvious to even the lowest information voter that Obama and his snake oil salesmen have been lying about the details of Obamacare that is hardly the most disturbing aspect of the scandal . That accomplishment belongs to our “free and independent” press , yes the very “gatekeepers” that are supposed to be the public’s bulwark against corruption in the political arena .

   As the facts are presently laid to public view it becomes ever more apparent that the very people that were vilified as “kooks” and “conspiracy theorists” by the press because they dared read the bill are being proven correct which goes a long way towards exposing the complicity of the MSM in foisting the unconstitutional mess that is Obamacare on their trusting viewers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Judge Saves 10-Year-Old From Kathleen Sebelius – The One-Woman Death Panel

 

 

 

 

” Fortunately, District Court Judge Michael Baylson issued a restraining order prohibiting Sebelius from applying the policy that will block Sarah from getting the lung transplant. CNN reports:

Janet Murnaghan, Sarah’s mother, said the family is “thrilled … literally jumping for joy.”

Now let’s be clear about exactly what happened here. A policy was put in place by the federal government that said certain people would take priority over others for transplants. When a person proved to be in desperate need of such a transplant – a matter of life and death – a cabinet-level government official refused to intervene, citing the rules, citing limits on her own authority and saying it would take too long at any rate to change the policy.

Lungs are available. A 10-year-old girl needs one or she will die. But a government policy says she can’t have one and no one will do anything to set aside or get around the policy so a 10-year-old girl will not die. Or at least no one would until Judge Baylson came along, thank God.

This is the death panel. It is exactly what Palin was talking about. It is not a group of hooded men sitting atop a raised dias, informing unfortunate souls, “You have been selected for death,” but it has the exact same effect. The government makes rules to govern the allocation of resources in health care, and the rules leave no room for flexibility when a person’s life is on the line and common sense argues that flexibility is absolutely necessary. Only the intervention of this judge, assuming it is allowed to stand, can save this young girl’s life – because government has no idea how to stop tripping over its own policies.”
