Sorry Dims -- The Death Panel is REAL

The State run media has -- in the eyes of fools -- completely (and dishonestly) discredited Sarah Palin. So, when the Dims found a need to discredit the phrase “Death Panel”, they only had to note that Sarah Palin coined the phrase and, among their willfully ignorant base (and others) -- VOILA -- allegation debunked! No evidence required!

But, does the “Death Panel” allegation have merit?

Leaving aside the infamous section 1233 thoroughly addressed by Ms. Palin, one need only read section 123 -- beginning on page 30 of the bill -- to FURTHER CONFIRM the allegation is entirely accurate!

These are direct quotations from section 123 of the House bill (Update: That link once pointed to what is now a previous incarnation of the House bill. Today, that link redirects to a different page which was (until the link went dead) Dim propaganda about the legislation as passed into law. It is extremely difficult to determine whether similar language exists in the 2,000+ pages of the health care monstrosity -- even the Library of Congress only provides 906 pages of the actual law. But, the following direct quotes existed at the height of the “Death Panel” controversies):

“There is established a private-public advisory committee which shall be a panel of medical and other experts to be known as the Health Benefits Advisory Committee to recommend covered benefits

EVERY member of this proposed committee is a political appointee:

“The Surgeon General shall be a member and the chair of the Health Benefits Advisory Committee.”

“The Health Benefits Advisory Committee shall be composed of the following members, in addition to the Surgeon General:

(A) 9 members who are not Federal employees or officers and who are appointed by the President.

(B) 9 members who are not Federal employees or officers and who are appointed by the Comptroller General of the United States in a manner similar to the manner in which the Comptroller General appoints members to the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission under section 1805(c) of the Social Security Act.

(C) Such even number of members (not to exceed 8) who are Federal employees and officers, as the President may appoint.”

When I purchase health care insurance, I am provided with a written contract detailing what is and is not covered. If the insurance company breaches that contract, I have recourse through the courts.

Under the government plan, we will become subject to the whims of a panel of POLITICAL APPOINTEES who will arbitrarily decide -- in light of which way the political winds are blowing on any given day -- what our “covered benefits” shall be. And, we will have NO RECOURSE!

Anyone who thinks ours will be the first Socialist health care system in the history of the world NOT to ration health care is simply delusional.

The ONLY question is -- who will be denied coverage. And, I think we all know the answer to that question. It WILL be grandma and grandpa.

So, call it rationing or call it a “Death Panel”. It’s all the same.

Oh, and…
If you think grandma and grandpa will be ALLOWED to purchase private insurance which will fit THEIR desired level of end of life care, then click the next link and discover the next level of tyranny! Canada has made it illegal to offer ANY private insurance which competes directly with the government monopoly. And, once again, we need only read the bill to discover our tyrants plan to do EXACTLY THE SAME THING!
