Sarah Palin Was Right About Death Panels

Sarah Palin Was Right About Death Panels

Sarah tried to warn us.

Under Obamacare, the sick would be judged by death panels of bureaucrats and be granted life or death.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was ridiculed for making a prediction four years ago that turned out to be true. Maybe she is one of the handful who actually read the healthcare bill to see what was in it before it passed.
“And who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course,” she wrote on her Facebook page back in 2009.
“The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s ‘death panel’ so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their ‘level of productivity in society,’ whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.”
President Obama and his sheep objected, calling Palin an irresponsible liar unworthy of the public political stage.
The media’s so called keeper of the truth PolitiFact called the claim the “Lie of the Year.”, another so called “truth” panel, summarily dismissed the assertion as a “whopper.”
Then comes along cancer survivor Edie Littlefield Sundby.
The ruins of Obamacare have not yet been fully implemented and already she has been issued what amounts to a death sentence.
“For almost seven years I have fought and survived stage-4 gallbladder cancer, with a five-year survival rate of less than 2% after diagnosis,” she writes in an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal.
“I am a determined fighter and extremely lucky. But this luck may have just run out: My affordable, lifesaving medical insurance policy has been canceled effective Dec. 31.”
Dan Pfeiffer used Twitter to dismiss Edie Sundby’s claims about Obamacare and blamed the cancellation of her policy on her insurance company.
“United Healthcare dropped her coverage because they’ve struggled to compete in California’s individual health care market for years and didn’t want to pay for sicker patients like Sundby,” according to Pfeiffer’s Tweet.
