Tell us something we did not already know!
The Affordable Care Act contains provisions for “death panels,” which decide which critically-ill patients receive care and which won’t, according to Mark Halperin, senior political analyst for Time magazine.
“It’s built into the plan. It’s not like a guess or like a judgment. That’s going to be part of how costs are controlled,” Halperin told “The Steve Malzberg Show” on Newsmax TV.
MALZBERG, HOST: A lot of people said you weren’t going to be able to keep your health care, but also they focused on the death panels, which will be coming, call them what you will, rationing, is part of it…
HALPERIN: No, I agree, and that’s going to be a huge issue, and that’s something else on which the president was not fully forthcoming and straightforward.
MALZBERG: So, you believe there will be rationing, a.k.a. death panels?
HALPERIN: It’s built into the plan. It’s not like a guess or like a judgment. That’s going to be part of how costs are controlled.
Halperin went on to say that he believes the country “can’t afford to spend so much on end-of-life care,” but those judgments need to be made by individuals and insurance companies rather than the federal government.
Did he have a moment of clarity? ”…rather than the federal government”?
Remember when Sarah Palin was trashed and mercilessly attacked by the left (typical) for revealing the fact of Death Panels? This is more evidence by the obame administration that obamacare was sold on a pack of lies. I am still waiting for my annual premiums to be lowered by $2500….
…. I won’t hold my breath. Wait until the end of the year when corporate health insurance policies will be subject to the minimum federally mandated standards…. The cancellations seen at the end of last year won’t compare to those that will be cancelled this year.
“If you like your insurance you can keep your insurance.” “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.” obame (obay me) knew the lessons learned from Hillarycare. If people could not keep their insurance and doctors they would reject his plan like they did Hillary’s. The need to lie was necessary to get it passed…just like the one that said “this is a penalty and not a tax”.
…. but the low information voters on the left (and they still troll this blog) will still be as ignorant as ever (voluntarily) and defend obAMATEUR while still maintaining he did not lie.
UPDATE: Obamacare continues to be the massive failure that we know it is and the pRegressive low information voters continue to deny.
The mindless drones continue to defend obamacare and regurgitate the talking point of millions have signed up. However, signing up on a dysfunctional web-site and actually getting insurance are two different things. Many are finding out that after signing up insurance companies through the website (when it doesn’t crash) have no records with the targeted insurance company of such an enrollment.
Now before you pRegressive drones screech about the link, notice that the article is from the Associated Press. But we all know, you will latch onto that common pathetic tactic rather than address the real point of the post.
