Bill Whittle: Sarah Palin Was Right About Death Panels

To follow up on last week’s story about Howard Dean emerging from the unreality bubble just long enough to admit that the IPAB is about rationing, Bill Whittle took on the infamous Death Panels. Of course, Whittle knocked it out of the park.  See for yourself… H/T: America’s Watchtower

Howard Dean Agrees That IPAB is the Death Panel

Well, he didn’t exactly say that, but he did identify the  relationship between the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) and rationing, or as Sarah Palin put it-Dealth Panels.  I covered that here at the CH 2.0 back in April of 2010… ObamaCare Damage: IPAB, Rationing and the Dealth Panel? Then, Paul Krugman admitted that the IPAB was the Death Panel back in November of that same year… Paul Krugman Seems to Favor the Supposedly “Nonexistent” Death Panels UPDATED! Now, “howling” Howard Dean has joined the reality club, admitting that the IPAB will ration care.  Phineas at Sister Toldja has the […]

They Said if I Voted for Romney, They’d Come After my 401(k), and They Were Right!

That’s right kids, they government is eyeing your 401(k), IRA, or 403(b) with great envy.  And, as for the title, since Stacey is talking blog shtick, I thought I’d borrow from his well, which is deep with all sorts of goodness.   But, back to the seriousness.  There has been rumblings about the government taking over all private retirement accounts for some time.  Apparently, the democrats just can’t let a big pool of money sit there in private hands-it must be controlled, and redistributed, bythe kind hands of government.  Bob Belvedere at  TCOTS has more… The Editors at Investor’s Business Daily published an excellent […]

Paul Ryan Mentions IPAB, and Think Progress Seems to Think it Wrong

Think Progress (More correctly:  Think Regress) seems to be a tad bit upset that Paul Ryan discussed the death panels, also known as IPAB, with a group of seniors.  I guess we can’t be letting granny know that it’s the Democrats that plan on offing them, can we? Here is what the propagandists at Think Regress thought of Paul Ryan’s speech… Paul Ryan likened a mechanism to control health care spending to “death panels,” during a town hall at the University of Central Florida in Orlando on Saturday. After listening to Ryan repeatedly call for the repeal of the Affordable […]

ObamaCare Damage, a Glimpse of out Future: NHS Commits De facto Euthanasia with 130,000 a Year

Now that ObamaCare has been deemed “constitutional” by the SCOTUS, we have some more glimpses into out future.  There are many aspects to this future that are rather chilling.  The latest is the revelation that the British NHS commits an informal form of euthanasia to deal with the overcrowding and lack of resources in their single payer system.  Life News has the details… Shocking news from England today has top NHS officials indicating doctors acting in the UK government-run health program annually kill as many as 130,000 patients prematurely because of overcrowding at hospitals, medical clinics and nursing homes. Professor […]

Obama's Budget Speech Mentions the Death Panel?

That most depised, and derided, part of the ObamaCare legislation, the Death Panels, are again making waves on the blogs.  Erick Erickson of Redstate and Bunkerville have both taken a look at Obama’s speech, and have came to the conclusion that he had made thinly veiled references to the “death panels.” I happen to agree. Here is  a brief excerpt from Redstate… While everyone else was focused on Barack Obama bashing Paul Ryan, I noticed that he took full ownership of death panels yesterday. Naturally, Obama did not call them death panels. He called them “an independent commission of doctors, nurses, medical […]

ATTENTION: Discussing End of Life Care is NOT the Death Panels!

The blogosphere is all aflutter with talk of the Death Panels.  Since the Obama Administration has decided that the legislature is irrelevant and added reimbursement for discussions of “end of life care” to the Medicare regs, everyone is screaming “Death Panels.”  Here’s the problem: This has nothing to do with  the death panels. Here’s why I say that… 1.  Discussing end of life care is not at all unusual.  Doctors do it all the time.  In my profession, I have discussed advance directives, living wills, and “do not resuscitate orders.”  This is not devious, and the patient is in complete […]

Paul Krugman Seems to Favor the Supposedly “Nonexistent” Death Panels UPDATED!

If you remember, we were discussing rationing throughout the ObamaCare debates.  Of course, we were called “fear mongers,” among other things.  Now that the law has been passed, and the other predictions we made are coming to pass, the entire rationing issue continues to brew under the surface.  However, every now and again, it rears its ugly head.  It started in the very early days of the Obama Administration… We must always remember that what the messiah and his minions cannot accomplish outright, they will accomplish incrementally.  For more, look at this. In testimony yesterday before the Senate Committee on Finance, […]

ObamaCare Damage: IPAB, Rationing and the Dealth Panel?

I caught this video over at Hot Air today, and thought it best to share it here.  Kindly give a close listen to Peter Orszag, the current Director of the Office of Management and Budget under the POTUS. So, we have the IPAB, which stands for Independent Payment Advisory Board.  From what Orszag is saying; that it will cut costs by not being “based on quantity,” I think we can safely assume that this is a rationing body. Now, if this is a rationing body, and they are going to cut costs by not treating things, might this also be […]
