Death Panels…Their Baaack

“When a proposal to encourage end-of-life planning touched off a political storm over
‘death panels,’ Democrats dropped it from legislation to overhaul the health care system.
But the Obama administration will achieve the same goal by regulation, starting
Jan. 1.” – The New York Times

When former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin spoke of “death panels” and House Minority Leader
John Boehner said ObamaCare would “start us down a treacherous path toward
government-encouraged euthanasia,” radical leftists in Congress and the Obama
Administration laughed derisively. And they laughed even though they knew those
criticisms were 100 percent true.

But to make matters worse, extremists in Congress and the Obama Administration tried
to keep this “end-of-life” ruling under wraps. According to multiple news reports,
Congressman Earl Blumenauer of Oregon wrote the following in an email to supporters
of the “end-of-life” ruling:

  • “While we are very happy with the result, we won’t be shouting it from the rooftops ….
    We would ask that you not broadcast this accomplishment out to any of your lists, even if
    they are ‘supporters’ — e-mails can too easily be forwarded…. Thus far, it seems that no
    press or blogs have discovered it, but we will be keeping a close watch and may be calling
    on you if we need a rapid, targeted response. The longer this goes unnoticed, the better our
    chances of keeping it.”

Prior to ramming ObamaCare down the throats of the American people, Nancy Pelosi said
that we’d have to pass it in order to find out what was in it. Well now we know. And
while this “end-of -life” ruling won’t be the last bitter shocker to come out of
ObamaCare, no sane or rational person can deny that ObamaCare must be defunded and
repealed as soon as humanly possible.
