Don Surber: Curse you, Sarah Palin, for killing the death panels

Don Surber at the Charleston Daily Mail finds some fallout still in the air from Gov. Palin's warning about death panel back in 2009. He recalls how her remark cause heads in the liberal media to explode, including some at the sham site Politifact, which disingenuously branded it Lie Of The Year:
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.


I want to thank Eric Kleefield who in his eagerness to demonize Sarah Palin helped bring the planned death panels to the public’s attention.

So there are death panels and they are designed to kill people in order to save money because Obamacare — like the NHS — is about saving money, not lives. Socialists want to making life optional. This is why they support abortion on demand and why they death panels.

Ezra Klein is not the first to complain that we spend “so much” on grandma before she dies. I heard the same arguments 20 years ago when liberals were preparing us for Hillarycare. The argument is simple: We spend too much on medical care knowing we are going to die eventually anyway.

Sarah Palin instead killed the death panels. Well played
