Like Shootin’ Moose In A Barrel, Sarah Palin Slaps Barack Obama Down Again Over Death Panels

Can you imagine being Barack Obama these days?

I mean here you are only seven and a half months into your one and only term as president and your whole world is crashing down around you. Your signature issue, turning America into some sort of communist utopia, by usurping the constitution through your “health care” plan, is circling the drain.

You have angry Americans who have never been politically active in their lives fired up against you and the rest of your party. You will basically go down in history as the person who destroyed the democrat party. An epic failure.

And then there is this woman who your minions have been trying to destroy for almost a year who has your number, big time!

First she let you and the party have just enough rope and then calmly wrote two words on her Facebook page, “death panels.”

Then she just kicked backed and watched you, the democrats, the RINOs, the media, and well, everybody, go nuts trying to get out of this mess.

Now normal people understand that there won’t literally be death panels.

They also understand, however, that between the various medical boards who will decide what sort of standards and practices will be used, and what procedures will be appropriate for each group, combined with the bean counters, there will be defacto “death panels.”

Every nation that has socialized medicine rations health care. That’s indisputable fact.

But you, Barack Obama, along with your party had to take the bait didn’t you!

Instead of regrouping, you’ve sent Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and the rest of the bunch out to call American citizens a “mob” and “Nazis,” which is hilarious, because Nazis were socialists, kinda like modern day democrats!

You even sent out the union thugs from SEIU to attack unarmed dissenters!

But while you were doing all of this, those two little words from Sarah Palin, were turning the debate on it’s ear! Regular folks were hearing “death panels” and going to see what that was all about. They actually started reading the House bill H.R. 3200, all 1017 pages of it, for themselves.

That really got ‘em fired up!

But Mr Obama, you couldn’t let well enough alone. Since you obviously are allergic to the air in Washington, or think you are still campaigning for office, you went running off to Portsmouth, NH for a totally spontaneous and completely unrehearsed “townhall meeting.”

Group photo of participants at Portsmouth, NH townhall event:

Sarah, is in your head for sure and it shows!

Since TOTUS tried to commit suicide on you a few weeks back, you have not been at your best. No one to keep you from saying really stupid stuff like when you told the totally neutral and unbiased Portsmouth crowd that AARP was on board with your devious plans.

AARP was pretty quick to come out and say “not really pal!”

But this was classic! Here you are trying to sell the country on your communist boondoggle:

“UPS and FedEx are doing just fine. It’s the Post Office that’s always having problems”

___Barack Obama

I’m sure plenty of beverages were spewed all over America when they heard that one!

The very best though was when you took a swing and a miss at the ball Palin pitched to you. You actually had to bring up the death panels again! You ever think at some point people might just forget the bad stuff if you quit bringing it up?

You really are making this too easy!

At this point Sarah is just playing with you. I mean it’s like having a cat and a string.

Barack Obama and democrat party “leaders” pictured below:

So from her lakeside home in beautiful Wasilla, Alaska, Sarah has sent you a message via her Facebook page:

Concerning the “Death Panels”

Yesterday President Obama responded to my statement that Democratic health care proposals would lead to rationed care; that the sick, the elderly, and the disabled would suffer the most under such rationing; and that under such a system these “unproductive” members of society could face the prospect of government bureaucrats determining whether they deserve health care.

The President made light of these concerns. He said:

“Let me just be specific about some things that I’ve been hearing lately that we just need to dispose of here. The rumor that’s been circulating a lot lately is this idea that somehow the House of Representatives voted for death panels that will basically pull the plug on grandma because we’ve decided that we don’t, it’s too expensive to let her live anymore….It turns out that I guess this arose out of a provision in one of the House bills that allowed Medicare to reimburse people for consultations about end-of-life care, setting up living wills, the availability of hospice, etc. So the intention of the members of Congress was to give people more information so that they could handle issues of end-of-life care when they’re ready on their own terms. It wasn’t forcing anybody to do anything.”

__Barack Obama

The provision that President Obama refers to is Section 1233 of HR 3200, entitled “Advance Care Planning Consultation.” With all due respect, it’s misleading for the President to describe this section as an entirely voluntary provision that simply increases the information offered to Medicare recipients. The issue is the context in which that information is provided and the coercive effect these consultations will have in that context.

Section 1233 authorizes advanced care planning consultations for senior citizens on Medicare every five years, and more often “if there is a significant change in the health condition of the individual … or upon admission to a skilled nursing facility, a long-term care facility… or a hospice program.” During those consultations, practitioners must explain “the continuum of end-of-life services and supports available, including palliative care and hospice,” and the government benefits available to pay for such services.

Now put this in context. These consultations are authorized whenever a Medicare recipient’s health changes significantly or when they enter a nursing home, and they are part of a bill whose stated purpose is “to reduce the growth in health care spending.” Is it any wonder that senior citizens might view such consultations as attempts to convince them to help reduce health care costs by accepting minimal end-of-life care? As Charles Lane notes in the Washington Post, Section 1233 “addresses compassionate goals in disconcerting proximity to fiscal ones…. If it’s all about alleviating suffering, emotional or physical, what’s it doing in a measure to “bend the curve” on health-care costs?”

As Lane also points out:

Though not mandatory, as some on the right have claimed, the consultations envisioned in Section 1233 aren’t quite “purely voluntary,” as Rep. Sander M. Levin (D-Mich.) asserts. To me, “purely voluntary” means “not unless the patient requests one.” Section 1233, however, lets doctors initiate the chat and gives them an incentive — money — to do so. Indeed, that’s an incentive to insist.

Patients may refuse without penalty, but many will bow to white-coated authority. Once they’re in the meeting, the bill does permit “formulation” of a plug-pulling order right then and there. So when Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) denies that Section 1233 would “place senior citizens in situations where they feel pressured to sign end-of-life directives that they would not otherwise sign,” I don’t think he’s being realistic.

Even columnist Eugene Robinson, a self-described “true believer” who “will almost certainly support” “whatever reform package finally emerges”, agrees that “If the government says it has to control health-care costs and then offers to pay doctors to give advice about hospice care, citizens are not delusional to conclude that the goal is to reduce end-of-life spending.”

So are these usually friendly pundits wrong? Is this all just a “rumor” to be “disposed of”, as President Obama says? Not according to Democratic New York State Senator Ruben Diaz, Chairman of the New York State Senate Aging Committee, who writes:

Section 1233 of House Resolution 3200 puts our senior citizens on a slippery slope and may diminish respect for the inherent dignity of each of their lives…. It is egregious to consider that any senior citizen … should be placed in a situation where he or she would feel pressured to save the government money by dying a little sooner than he or she otherwise would, be required to be counseled about the supposed benefits of killing oneself, or be encouraged to sign any end of life directives that they would not otherwise sign.

Of course, it’s not just this one provision that presents a problem. My original comments concerned statements made by Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a health policy advisor to President Obama and the brother of the President’s chief of staff. Dr. Emanuel has written that some medical services should not be guaranteed to those “who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens….An obvious example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia.” Dr. Emanuel has also advocated basing medical decisions on a system which “produces a priority curve on which individuals aged between roughly 15 and 40 years get the most chance, whereas the youngest and oldest people get chances that are attenuated.”

President Obama can try to gloss over the effects of government authorized end-of-life consultations, but the views of one of his top health care advisors are clear enough. It’s all just more evidence that the Democratic legislative proposals will lead to health care rationing, and more evidence that the top-down plans of government bureaucrats will never result in real health care reform.”

Now Mr Obama, Barack, I know being a community organizer must give you a lot of insight or something cool like that, but while you were running around the country campaigning for president on the taxpayers dime, after abandoning your Senate seat, Sarah Palin was actually dealing with a health care crisis in Alaska! Thanks to the federal government, it’s rules, and regulations the poor and elderly had long waits and poor health care.

You see, elderly Medicaid patients were facing those “mythical” death panels daily. Thanks to Palin’s efforts she was able to reduce the Medicaid backlog by 83 % in just two years. An incredible feat.

So Barack Obama, democrats, media, whoever, please keep on quoting Sarah Palin. Keep talking about her. Heck, even make fun of her!

All of you are just pawns on her chess board!

Sarah Palin has your number and it’s going to be a really long 3 years!

  1. Just fantastic, absolutely fantastic article and right on target. I LOVE the aircraft picture!!!!

    Would you mind if we send this article to people on our contact list?

  2. heathermoor

    Really great article Gary!

  3. Uncle Butch

    The best article I have seen on Yahoo for a long, lonnnng, time.

  4. Casey R

    You nailed it! This should be read at the beginning of every town hall meeting

  5. Great article written on an intelligent level w/ lots of “food for thought.” We need more like these !!!!!!

  6. Bond

    Very well researched, can you now explain why you people expect one man to fix up two terms of that idiot Bush in 7 months?? It would take any man an entire term to fix the mess that he put us in

    How easily we forget, you know some people are no better than the media but as far as research is concerned great article you may just want to work on the direction that your fingers are pointing.

    • Gary P

      Funny thing…Until the democrats took over Congress in 2006, things were working reasonably well.

      Unemployment was lower than the average of the 1950’s, the 1960’s, the 1970’s, the 1980’s and the 1990’s.

      Inflation was low, and we had decent growth.

      The mortgage crisis was growing, for sure, but that started under Carter, wityh the “Community Re-Investment Act” egged on by ACORN (and Obama played a HUGE role in that, as he was a thug trainer) The Bill Clinton ordered Fannie and Freddie to buy up all of the worthless paper they could.

      Many Republicans tried to reform Fannie and Freddie, but the democrats all screamed racism and paraded the usual suspects out there.

      I DO blame the Republicans for allowing the democrats, the party that founded the KKK and created Jim Crow laws, to get away with EVER calling anyone else racist.

      But this is standard democrat fare. They are screw ups, big time, and when they screw the pooch really bad, they scream racism if you try and either call ’em on it, or fix their messes!

      Folks forget that Bush inherited Clinton’s recession. The internet bubble hard burst, and Enron happened on Clinton’s watch. Neither was Clinton’s fault, but Bush inherited it.

      To compound it all, 9/11 destroyed millions of jobs.

      What did Bush do? Just the opposite if what Obama and the democrats have done. Bush CUT taxes, and the economy became the strongest in our nations history. Unprecedented growth in GDP, and historically low unemployment was the result.

      What Bush did is a very proven path to economic recovery. John Kennedy did it when he became President, and Reagan, who inherited Carter’s fiasco, did the same.

      But Barry is following the FDR model. Roosevelt turned a bad recession into the Great Depression, and then kept it going for the rest of the decade by social engineering of the same type Obama is trying to engage in!

      Barry is an abject failure. He’s following a proven plan to disaster.

      Barry has spent more money in 7 month than all of the other 43 presidents spent in 233 years. We’ll be lucky to survive this nonsense.

      • Rick D

        Gary, You are right on target. However, you are expelling waste liquids into the wind. Folks like Bond are absolutely sure that Bush is responsible for everything that is wrong with the federal government (and many local governments, New Orleans comes to mind) There is no convincing them with mere facts…you have to have “hope and change” they can believe in. Thanks for the common sense post.

    I understand that many Americans are afraid of the healthcare reform issue and what are being called death panels. I believe there are too many people spreading mistruths on both sides and average citizens are hearing what they want to hear. But I have one question to ask. How many of the people at these town hall meetings, the people on the caustic media, and the folks on sites like this have actually READ the bill? I didn’t vote for Obama or McCain (I did vote however for an alternative candidate), and I’m not trying to defend Obama or the healthcare bill, but I think it’s only fair to take a careful look “yourself” at the matter instead of letting someone else tell you what to think. I’m listening, watching, and reading what people are saying and it all looks to me like no one is thinking for themselves. The bill is available for anyone to read. It a public document and it’s posted on the internet on the Dept of Ways and Means website. I suggest that anyone who hasn’t read it read it throughly, then make a decision.

    • Gary P

      O yeah, everyone needs to read H.R.3200. It’s actually linked to in the above blog post. 1017 pages of incredible, unconstitutional, freedom and liberty stealing mess.

      You could do just two things, and fix most of what ails health care.

      One is tort reform. When you have ambulance chasing lawyers advertising on national TV for clients, you have a problem.

      Doctors perform more tests than are needed because they are afraid of getting sued if something goes wrong. Malpractice insurance for doctors is sky high.

      Now granted, there are certainly valid reasons to sue someone, but it is totally out of hand.

      Being a conservative, I am certainly no big fan of the GOP as a whole, though there are some good ones, and Sarah Palin is a true superstar. But I don’t shill for the party.

      With that said, none of the democrats want tort reform. They are all in the trial lawyers pockets.

      The Republican plans do contain major tort reform. It’s key. We I live, my state passed sweeping tort reform years ago. Things are so much better. But as some states do not have protections, they have problems.

      The second problem is illegal aliens. Because Americans are a compassionate people, absolutely everyone who needs medical care can get it, one way or the other.

      In fact, by law, hospitals must treat anyone who shows up at the ER. The illegals understand this well. In areas of high concentrations of illegals, such as Southern California, they have been forcing hospitals out of business.

      You clean up the legal end, and send the illegals packing, and you’ve went a very long way toward fixing what is broke.

      What the democrats are proposing is sheer lunacy!

  15. mountainhiker

    Sarah Palin should be in the White House, but for the time being, she is going to bat for the American people right now.. As they say things happen for a reason.. and Her time is coming to be where she needs to be.. to champion for the American people.. KEE GOING SARAH!!!!!!! Show them you are the Pit Bull!!!!!

  16. E.A. Delgado

    Great article but we already have a National Healthcare Program. It’s called the VA I suggest we perfect the VA system first then once that becomes the envy of the world. And our Vetran Heroes insist on going to the VA driving anywhere for care instead of their local healthcare provider then we can implement it Universally. lol lol lol

    We definitly need to overhaul the system but the real problem lies with the insurance companies that have policies and procedures that vary and forms that have created a sector of healthcare clerks. And the companies are not held to any real accountability to the patient, doctors or regulators.

    If you pay your premiums you should never lose your coverage regardless of the cost of treatments as long as the treatments are recommended by the treating physician who can also be held accountable for their diagnosis. Not like “Elvis’s or MJ’s treating physicians.

  17. LadyDane in FL

    Way to go Sarah!!! Another thing besides putting a halt to Illegals getting free medical help, the money Obama gave to other countries like Africa would have made a huge difference in the lives of the AMERICAN PEOPLE. Instead of throwing money away to other governments, put it into our medical crisis.. keep it AT HOME. Deal with the USA and forget for the time being the problems abroad! Your jet setting costs is another thing that would save money. Sarah is right! I would hate to be a elderly patient in the hospital and have a DR who I have faith in, come in and explain (goad) me into signing something to end my life. He’s there to lengthen my time here, not shorten it! Obama, give it up, it’s a lost cause.. Sarah wins this round!

  18. Todd

    Great article Gary! I would like to ask one question. If Sarah is so wrong and so stupid and all these other terms being used about her. Why are the dems scared of her?She is being hounded constantly byt Obama and his ilk.She has made no comment on running against him,but they have an active campaign to destroy her.

    I love it! I love her! I love all of you out there whohave read the bill, took a stand and said NO! This is how our government was formed. Of the people,by the people and FOR THE PEOPLE! Keep it up my fellow “Unamerican” and that dreaded N word Pelosi spoke. How dare she call us that??Same person proud of her demonstartions in the past,but I am unamerican cause I dont support her? Get real.

    You know, Gary, you are a virtual top ten university of public information on ‘the issues,’ and I compliment you on that point.

    On another, you have clarified something I had not been able to get at prior, even as a (mental)/healthcare advocate, and that is the issue of “death panels.” I had simply fought for the 100% care for so long, that I didn’t realize such a stark horror could have been placed in the health plans, most of which like Obamacare do not in fact cover Universally but only 2/3 of those in need. Consistent with my 5-year work with Amnesty International where we argued the UDHR (1948,UN) “right-to-life” clause to preclude capital punishment and I said, ‘it also goes for conception on (ie; pro-life),’ I have never liked assisted suicide. Suicide’s illegal anyway.

    I believe I generally or specifically and totally support the conception of “The Culture of Life.”

    But as you present directly to us, in our Indonesian/Hawaiian’s own words, Obamacare is designed to ‘give people more information on’ “end of life (so-called) care.” You have argued the rest, AND SUCCESSFULLY. This is a DEATH PANEL clause.

    I have never been hunting, so it might not mean much for me to say something about bagging a moose, but our Lion of Walessa has roared —

    Put my name and public resume squarely in any future framing of law or policy: assisted suicide and any assisting or encouraging by any doctor, organ of government or other relevant party in “end of life care/provisions” of any documents or therapeutic procedure is to be opposed.

    “There are years of studies to be done to analyze, compare, and refine the draft sequences, but Church and his colleagues began with a few relevant evaluations. “The various tests we used to compare these genomes were biased toward things we thought biologists would want to be doing as complete genomes come out,” he said.
    To measure the completeness and continuity of each draft, the group looked at gaps in the assemblies, which are indicated in the sequences by strings of N’s. At first, it seems as if the sequence of the Genome Project contains fewer unidentified bases than the Celera sequence, but this is because Celera was able to more accurately predict the size of the gaps and includes larger stretches of unidentified sequence. Another measure of a sequence’s continuity is how likely it is that a particular stretch of DNA will be found on a continuous piece, or “contig.” Both sequences are split into contigs of various sizes, far short of the ideal of having a single contig for every chromosome. The team looked at 10 large mRNAs, which are encoded by a series of exons that can be spread out over a long distance. “If the mRNA is on more than one contig, that probably means the assembly isn’t complete, so you can use that as an assay for how complete the assembly is,” said Church. The sequences yielded similar results, but both had some examples of incomplete mRNAs or ones that spanned multiple contigs.
    The team then looked at oligonucleotides, unique short sequences that can be used as probes and primers for specific stretches of DNA or mRNA. “To set up for the rest of the biological annotation of the human genome, it helps to know which sequences are truly unique,” said Church. The team looked at all possible unique combinations of 15 nucleotides, or 15-mers, and found that the two drafts had comparable numbers, but there was a small percentage that were found in one draft and not the other. In these cases, having two drafts can serve to check one against the other, with the stretches found in both drafts making likelier candidates for study.

    FEDERAL REGULATORY OVERHAUL: “Reform” in a state of Public Disinformation
    By: Mark V Basile
    04/20/10 10:00 PM 68 hits
    Thank G_d its not the “Constitution” again. (Not yet at least). Public Official nominee(s) being shoved into jobs after specifically being rejected via Advise and Consent by the United Senate through ‘recess nominations.’ Reconciliation/nuclear option in to maintain questionable steamroller legislating in avoidance of reasonable checks and balances after Democracy appeared to step in and just plain stop it through the election of Senator Scott Brown out of Mass. Inasmuch as John McCain had addressed the same Democratic outcry on nuclear option with the formation of a significant bi-partisan middle group, out of the structure of the Senate erupts an Extra-Constitutional actor – this nobody nohow Parlaimentarian to interpret away checks and balances as per filibuster and simply force the redirection to the House for a vote, where s/he knew s/he had the Obama/Pelosi votes to pass Healthcare, which indeed left 15-20 million out in the cold. Congressional Budget Office/ New York Times (3/18/10)/CNN (3/17/10).*Subsequent articulation of “hands-up/hands-down” definitively describing ‘nuclear option’ with potential long-term implications for evisceration of checks and balances as things currently stand in the structure of our Constitutional 3-part government: The executive, the legislature and the courts – with States’ Rights and Federalism considerations. 10/13/10 comment.
    Step one, Olympia Snow it. OK, this is still the Constitution. Steamroller, albeit, but not technically extra-Constitutional. 4/16/10, CNN. Still, “checks and balances” is a core “understanding.”
    Cloud on the horizon:’policy of overriding importance than articulated principle of bipartisanship.’ Obama.
    But what about the leadoff? A “broadside” leveled against the United Stated Chamber of Commerce by the US Treasury Secretary. 3/24/10, Wall Street Journal. The Chamber of Commerce ‘pigeon-holed’ as a “special interest?!?” Chamber of Commerce “officials sat aghast.” It’s Chief Executive responded with enormous reserve, it was a bit of a “political speech.” He noted, ‘we were called no kind of “special interest” when we backed the Stimulus Bill or the efforts concerning General Motors’ (addressed in specifics elsewhere, where Obama sent a prostrate Motor City back as a Big 2 with foreign ownership now fully imposed upon one of the Big 3 by Obama fiat.) Other members of the Chamber of Commerce were more assertive, though still enormously moderate in approach: “The Constitution is very clear on our right to raise issues.” Wall Street Journal, “Federal Regulatory Overhaul.”
    Is there a question: if overweening authority ‘calls you’ a special interest, are you to simply lie down and give up your right to “speech?” Howard Zinn, rip, says “protest” and “resist” are actual rights. Albeit Left of Center by all standards, I’m sure that’s what the Brits though of us around Valley Forge. (See for full review on Zinn, caveat, mild mannered but with a lot of punch).
    Spin/Pigeon-holeing. From the United States’Chamber of Commerce as a “special interest” to a social conservative, coming out of a 53% Independent body politique base as a Rightist, that’s Sarah. Skeletal Teddy Roosevelt and the Progressive Party (Bull Moose) now established out of Liberal lambast (witness Gallup, 12/09, one of 2 most admired women in the world). Sarah with doubly unstated family profile of Christian charity and ideological left centrism, a fully accepted and welcomed into the nuclear family single mother who is still only 19, and a two or three year old son with Down who she has vigorously spoken out in advocacy and for those with mental health backgrounds on at least 3 high profile occasions, boldly taking on Rush for aping Emmanuel’s use of something like “r_tards.” I still stand by the firm contention that in NO WAY is pro-life Rightist, Amnesty International virtually held a gun to my head if I accepted a capital punishment case over a 5 year period and didn’t argue against it. Nobel Peace Prize. See “Right-to-Life” clause of Universal Declaration of Human Rights, UN, 1948. So I simply said, the one Nobel nomination for our ex-Governor who emptied death row was “good.” I hope Big Jim of juris 16 years gets him that $60,000/year pension after he finishes his time, FOR NOTHING HE DID AS GOVERNOR.
    Our head of state won’t even go to a Warsaw Pact (former’s) funeral for a tragic death in a plane crash. Like trains can’t travel under clouds of volcanic smoke. Mayor of New York and an Independent, a man worth $15 Billion who started out with virtually nothing, takes the subway to work every day in downtown NYC.

    The issue is, in exacerbation of a Liberal Democratic Hawaiin Governor’s concurrence with the executive, ‘not to disclose,’ – while a manufactured product is waiting to be unveiled having learned from the incorrect typewriter error on the ‘action’ against George Bush II ??: Is there significance to Barack/Barry dropping citizenship to apply for financial aid at Occidental/LA, under a packet which also is sealed, in order to be able to go to college in the first place? If so, then why Occidental — could Occidental have been one of the only options? Too much unclarity in this Indonesian-national application for admission, more needs to be forthcoming. Ad: 1/15. Clearing out sites for family outing. ie; loose ends and that sort of thing. MVB. A Time For Choosing. Preferred site for essays and blogging with the suburban Chicago Tribune on-line. (Schenck (sp?) on Debs has two actual issues, the speech issue and the issue of involuntary servitude, 13th Amendment. Ron Paul’s celeb. improper judicial imprisonment, though he did also have directly on Home Page a person who stated, “I am a Libertarian Socialist, and I love Ron Paul.” I have seen a critique of Oliver Wendell Holmes, but I simply would have to read HIS whole opinion to see the specific grounds of his part of the upholding of the Espionage Act in that case. Judge Holmes comments on not being able to shout fire in a peopled theatre. But as I have noted, other speech can bleed into action, effect of “incite.” In any case, Harding said, scr_w this, and just let Eugene Debs out of jail — just like that. Let Woodrow Wilson have his prissy Princeton Graduate Departments, see psycho-biography, and his Solid Racist Democratic South politcal base, ‘we shall have a “Return to Normalcy.”‘

    Ad, Aug 2009. CONCUR with Gary P. Jackson. Tort Reform essential. Pain and suffering fanaticism is known of, but the financial bottom line of doctors serving the less wealthy being driven to the brink or over by “insurance,” reasonably stated as in light of malpractice impacts upon insurance carriers, indicates a virtual ‘rescue’ of our doctors is necessitated. I hear this goes triple in rural areas, where you gotta get a Saint to practice to begin with, as compared to the big money available within the environs of the urban/suburban sprawls. Mark.
