Sarah Palin: Great Article Obama’s TRUE GOAL Tax Oil & Gas Industry Out of Existence

Posted by citizens4palin on July 28, 2010

Take a look at this great article on Obama’s commission to investigate the Gulf spill. The commission’s focus on drilling safety will be cursory — only to check the box that it took an alleged hard look at the issue. The obvious goal of the environmental activists on the commission will be to draw preconceived conclusions in order to justify regulating/taxing the oil & gas industry out of existence.

- Sarah Palin

The commission appointed by President Obama to investigate the Gulf oil spill (the National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling) does not include a single member with specialized knowledge of petroleum engineering. This is akin to performing a heart transplant with a surgical team that has never set foot in an operating room.

Of the seven members appointed to the commission, not one is a petroleum engineer, and all have long-standing ties to the environmental movement. […]

If the president’s intention was to prevent future leaks, why would he appoint a commission with no knowledge of drilling? The answer, it would seem, is that this commission was never meant to perform the task it was officially charged with. It was never really intended to be a commission on drilling safety, but rather a group of environmental activists intent on regulating and taxing the oil and gas companies out of business. Its report is unlikely to focus on improved safely measures with the intent of increasing oil and gas exploration and production. It will more likely issue a blueprint on how to restrict drilling while extorting profits from oil companies by way of new fees and regulation.

Even as the commission hears impassioned testimony from Gulf Coast residents about the economic devastation of Obama’s ban on deep-water drilling (his second ban, the first having been ruled illegal by a federal court), its members continue to register their opposition to drilling of any sort. […]

There are two crucial lessons to be learned from the Deepwater Horizon accident, but it is doubtful whether the commission will comprehend either of them. The first is that “best practices” exist which, had they been strictly adhered to, may have prevented the Deepwater Horizon accident. It is for the commission to determine whether they were followed in that case, but it is incontrovertible that best practices have prevented significant accidents on all of the other 40,000 wells drilled in the Gulf. These practices, with continual improvement, should prevent spills in the future as well.

The second lesson, and one that no one in government or the mainstream media seems to have considered, is that the Deepwater Horizon, however flawed its management might have been, had the capacity to produce a great deal of oil and gas. […]

For most Americans, new drilling and the energy independence that comes with it seem like a good thing, but that is the very reason why the president has appointed a commission hostile to increased drilling. The success of the free market in the United States depends to a great extent on the availability of cheap energy. By cutting off the supply of oil, natural gas, and coal, Obama ensures a continuation of high unemployment and an extended period of slow growth, and with these, the expansion of the socialist welfare state.

Nothing could be further from the interests of the modern-day Democratic Party than the transformation of the American economy into a flourishing free-market economy powered by cheap and reliable fossil fuels. The fight over drilling, in this sense, is nothing less than a struggle for the future of capitalism in America.

Sarah Palin Outs Darth Vader

Posted by citizens4palin on July 15, 2010

The intrepid crusader from the north cut to the heart of Obamacare a year ago, slashing through the professor-speakand government gobbledygook with a searing summary on Facebook of its bottom line: death panels.” With those words, the grounds for debate had shifted, the mainstream media ideological blackout was circumvented, and now, although it may have been Obama’s new head of Medicare, Harvard’s Dr. Donald Berwick, who stepped on the shuttle at Boston’s Logan International Airport, it is Darth Vader who has exited at Reagan National.

Darth Vader — really? The man responsible for the death of a gazillion inhabited worlds, through whom the evil Emperor Palpatine — described as ” a middle-aged politician … who gains power through deception and treachery“…sound familiar? — sought to enslave the universe in the fictional Star Wars saga? Surely, an exaggeration! Yes, and deliberately so, for Berwick starts off his gig as head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid as an enthusiastic proponent of, as one British media commentator noted, a system that routinely denies “some poor suffering victim a remedy that is available in other countries.” At the same time, it views the elderly as simply less worthy of care, an expendable segment of the population for whom doctors and heart specialists provide less treatment past the official “cut-off” of 65 years, a British health research journal documented.

Palin’s column on death panels ignited a firestorm of elite media and beltway criticism. Once, that would have been enough to shut down debate, for the broadcast networks and newspapers controlled information — we knew only what they wanted us to know. Suddenly, the new media (including the site you’re now reading) provided reality, and the Tea Parties and Republican Party followed. And now Darth Vader has become a metaphor, a figure of speech signifying that the coming of Harvard’s Berwick represents the same thing to the average American that the arrival of the Death Star, the spaceship used to destroy planets, meant for entire populations. All of a sudden, life-and-death decisions are out of our hands, resting with a government determined to control every waking moment of our lives. […]

Sarah Palin was right, stubbornly hanging in when the mainstream media — sensing a great disturbance in the [leftist] force — trained its batteries on her. She was ridiculed on network newscasts, in the White House briefing room, by the media stormtroopers [who] represented the most visible extension of Imperial [Obama] might.” Darth Vader and Star Wars serve as metaphor, Palin as Princess Leia, while network anchors, commentator after commentator, all the president’s men showered ridicule on her. “Downright evil,” screamed Keith Olbermann; “stupid as s**t,” proclaimed a popular Democratic blog.

But she persevered, and the truth emerged. The president and his congressional allies were forcing a crazy quilt of statist bureaucracies, socialist dysfunctions, and authoritarian controls. Each day brought more revelations as Tea Party activists, Republican staffers, ordinary citizens, and new media combed through Obamacare legislation. Sarah Palin was right. Popular radio host Mark Levin put it best: “Sarah Palin’s not scary. You know who is? Barack Hussein Obama.”

Gulf Oil Spill Opens 2012 Door For Sarah Palin & Closes For Obama

Posted by citizens4palin on June 22, 2010

Say what you will about her political choices, but Sarah Palin knows how to spot winners. She picked Scott Brown for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts, then supported Rick Perry over Kay Bailey Hutchison for governor of Texas. She endorsed Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, for the Republican U.S. Senate nomination against uber-progressive California Democrat Barbara Boxer.

Palin’s endorsement of Marco Rubio for U.S. Senate in Florida helped drive fickle Charlie Crist out of the GOP primary race. And it will be very interesting watching her campaign for Republican Pat Toomey over Democrat Joe Sestak in Pennsylvania’s Senate race. But probably her most dramatic political choices this year have been Sharron Angle to face Harry Reid in Nevada and for Nikki Haley to be the next governor of South Carolina. [...]

Palin is building a stack of political markers that will become golden chits in 2012. If she is running for president, she is doing it the old fashioned way, the way Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan did it in 1968 and 1980, respectively. [...]

After serving two terms as governor of California and then challenging accidental President Gerald Ford in 1976, Ronald Reagan spent the next three years raising money and campaigning for Republican candidates around the country. By 1980, despite a full stable of other GOP candidates, Reagan was the favorite among conservatives, who by then had taken control of the Republican Party. [...]

But there is another reason Sarah Palin may yet emerge as the most likely candidate to win the 2012 GOP presidential nomination. The disastrous manner in which Obama and company are handling the Gulf oil spill, combined with the extremely unpopular environmental regulations they are trying to implement as a result, could very well open the door for a rival who knows a thing or two about energy policy.

The fact is that Barack Obama has never run so much as a cash register at a convenience store, and he has surrounded himself with similarly ignorant eggheads, thus making him extremely vulnerable to a challenge from someone who has, in fact, not only run a large state but also has had vast experience negotiating tough deals with oil company executives. That someone is Sarah Palin. As one of the most knowledgeable public figures in the country on the issue of energy policy, Palin can take the conservative message right into the center of the storm.

The Washington Post

By Christopher Willis: Palin taken aback by Obama ‘superpower’ remark

Washington, IL — Sarah Palin says she was taken aback to hear President Barack Obama say that America is a military superpower “whether we like it or not.”  Palin said Saturday night that Americans like being a dominant superpower. She says she doesn’t understand a world view that questions whether people like the fact that America is powerful.

The former Alaska governor’s remarks came in a question-and-answer session after a speech to about 1,100 people in the central Illinois town of Washington.  Obama said earlier this week that the United States must do its best to resolve conflicts around the world before they grow too serious. Otherwise, America might be drawn into the conflicts “because whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower.”

By Fran Eaton: Palin Raises Funds For Washington IL Community Center

It was the mayor of Washington Illinois that decided last year he wanted former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to come to his town just outside Peoria that got Palin into Illinois for her first visit this weekend. […]

Mayor Gary Manier set out to get Palin into his town of 14,000 residents to raise funds for the town’s community center and youth scholarships.  Tickets for tonight’s dinner will go as high as $200 per person. […]  Palin is coming back to Illinois next month, a guest of 560 AM WIND.  She’ll be speaking at the Rosemont Theatre, near O’Hare International Airport in Chicago’s western suburbs.

By Karen McDonald: Palin wraps up speech after extolling Peoria diversity

“So much of the eyes of America are on Peoria and this central region because it is kind of a melting pot of America and there’s a great diversity here and an opportunity to disagree without being disagreeable in order to get the best policies, the best ideas implemented,” Palin said during the banquet.

Her speech, the inaugural speech in Five Points Washington “Lessons from Leaders” speakers series, was titled “You Don’t Need a Title to Make a Difference.”

“I’m not necessarily a Sarah Palin fan, but I think people in her position have interesting things to say. After all, she was the governor of Alaska,” said Peoria County Sheriff Mike McCoy, a Republican.

By Marc Strauss: Sarah Palin Packs Five Points In Washington

Whatever you think of Sarah Palin she knows how to draw a crowd. On Saturday, at Five Points in Washington, that crowd numbered 1,100.  Ron and Hazel Dyar came to see Palin speak after she personally replied to a letter they’d sent her.  “We’re so proud of it and we have shown this note to many, many people. They just think this is awesome,” bragged Mrs. Dyar. […]

“A lot of the eyes of America are on this area looking at what it is that you’re doing right,” Palin told the crowd from the podium. “Perhaps it will help other communities emulate those things that have been successful here. It is such an honor for me to get to be here. I so appreciate the key to the city.”

Palin’s message while speaking at Five Points was entitled “You Don’t Need A Title To Make A Difference”. Her appearance drew plenty of people with titles. “I really don’t see why the controversy,” said Peoria Mayor Jim Ardis. “Her message is fairly clear. Her message fits in pretty strong in Central Illinois I believe.” […]

Many of the people who paid to see Sarah Palin at Five Points would like to see her run for president in 2012. But the guest speaker wasn’t talking about that.

Sarah Palin Charms Well Heeled Quests At Hamilton Fundraiser

“We share so much with that wildlife and those resources,” she told the sold-out charity event with 900 guests.“Our accents too! Do you know how many people asked me if I’m Canadian . . . I feel right at home with you all. We share a lot in that accent.”

“I loved Sarah Palin from the first time I saw her on TV at the national convention. She thinks like I think – less government, less tax, more freedom,” he said, arriving three hours before the event to get a glimpse of Palin entering the banquet hall.

“It’s hard to describe my admiration for her but I put her really high up there.” Not everyone was awestruck by the politician who appealed to Americans as the small-town hockey mom but has become a one-woman media empire since her failed bid for vice presidency.

“I have mixed emotions about what to think but I’d like to come and see what she has to say,” said Hamilton resident Janis Abbott, who had been given the tickets by her business partner. “We’ll see if it changes my opinion.”

“It seems to be more working-class type of vehicles, not the exotic cars parked in the lot over there,” he said pointing to the lot outside Carmen’s Banquet Hall.  “You get the mini vans and pick up trucks and,” he paused as a carload of screaming and honking women went by. “And Chevy Luminas.”

Hamilton, Ont  -  Jenni Lecluse of Hamilton said could hardly wait to hear from Palin. “She is a strong woman and she’s an example,” said Lecluse. “Whether or not you agree with her politics, you still have to respect her accomplishments.” Gerry Levy, of nearby Stoney Creek, said he admired Palin. As governor of Alaska, he said, Palin had “turned around a corrupt Republican government.”

As people milled in the pre-dinner foyer sipping wine, Mary Burford said she wanted to make up her own mind about Palin. “She’s a personality,” said Burford of Hamilton. “She’s very influential and she’s very controversial.” Many seemed star-struck by Palin. “How often do figures like this come to Hamilton?” said Lecluse.

Love-in for Sarah Palin in Canada; protests for Obama in Washington

“I love her,” said Carol Broderick, a retired church secretary from Buffalo, N.Y. “I’ve always loved her. I love her smile. She’s a great lady.”

Broderick and her husband were among 900 guests who paid $200 each to hear Palin speak at a charity fundraiser in Hamilton, Ont., Thursday.  “She’s so different than all the other politicians,” Broderick said. “She’s so happy, vibrant, energetic.”

Broderick, who now lives in Niagara Falls, Ont., but has dual citizenship, said she’d vote for Palin if she ran in the next U.S. presidential election. She said the Republican is treated unfairly in the media.

Steve Burns, 46, and his wife Shannon, 40, drove from Woodstock, Ont., for the event. “It’s just so refreshing to have someone like her in Canada,” said Burns, a steel factory worker. “Her voice represents me. She represents pro-life, pro-family, pro-community.”

‘People should stand up from being ordinary,’ Palin tells Hamilton crowd

HAMILTON – “Nothing is an accident just hold on, if you’re in a tough situation right now just hold on because you don’t know what’s just around the corner,” Palin, 46, told the crowd of 900 people who paid $200 each to hear her speech.

During the 30-minute address, Palin made many references to “cool” and “blast” and called her husband, who was sitting beside her “the first dude of Alaska.” She told many stories of her family, about her oldest son deciding to enlist in the army and go to Iraq, forcing her family to understand that “freedom wasn’t free.”

Palin also appealed to the crowd by complimenting Hamilton on a number of occasions for the “hard work” of its residents in producing steel. She also said that she put in a good word with the NHL, saying Hamilton deserved its own hockey team.

“They pick her apart for whatever reason,” she said, “for what she’s wearing. But she doesn’t let it get her down.” Steve Burns, 46, and his wife Shannon, 40, drove from Woodstock, Ont., for the event.

“It’s just so refreshing to have someone like her in Canada,” said Burns, a steel factory worker. “Her voice represents me. She represents pro-life, pro-family, pro-community.” “She’s so basic, so common sense,” he said. “I’m a blue-collar guy and she understands me.”

Palin’s speech was to be followed by a question-and-answer session with Connie Smith, a veteran Hamilton personality and current host of a Christian television show. The event, billed “An Intimate Evening with Sarah Palin,” sold out shortly after it was first announced last November.

Hamilton police Supt. Ken Bond said officers would be monitoring the event, but notably absent were any protesters. Michael Marini, a spokesman for the event said he and Palin discussed Canadian and American accents. “What struck me is the media image of Ms. Palin,” he said. “When you’re up and personal with her, she’s so humble and down to Earth.”Marini said Palin wowed him when she told him she knew Hamilton was a steel-producing city.

National Post (Toronto):

Sarah Palin to speak in Hamilton tonight

Palin, 46, was expected to give a 20- to 30-minute speech on family values and community volunteerism, followed by a question-and-answer session with Connie Smith, a veteran Hamilton personality and current host of a Christian television show. The event, billed “An Intimate Evening with Sarah Palin,” sold out shortly after it was first announced last November.

“In any event such as this one where there is a high profile, we plan for it and that’s what we’ve done,” he said Thursday. “We have staff prepared for the purpose of allowing things to go smoothly, but we don’t expect any problems or anything that is too controversial.”

Security at the event is also under tight control by the organizers. Media are allowed to attend the formal dinner but are not allowed to bring in cameras or tape recorders. Journalists have been asked to dress in formal wear, with no blue jeans allowed.

A portion of the proceeds from the event — originally slated to go to two area hospitals — will be donated to Charity of Hope, a Hamilton children’s organization that supports United Way, Kiwanis Boys and Girls clubs and the YMCA. The charity was named as a recipient following controversy surrounding Palin’s outspoken views on the Canadian health-care system.

Discovery Channel Wins Bid For Sarah Palin’s Alaska

Posted by citizens4palin on March 23, 2010

Sources say Discovery Communications has edged out rival A&E Networks in the bidding for the project, titled “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.”

Although travelogues are on brand for the Discovery flagship, having Palin as a centerpiece also makes the show a fit for mom-friendly TLC. Clearly nature docs are still viable for the company — Discovery’s latest effort in genre, the miniseries “Life,” just debuted to 11.8 million viewers on Sunday night.

In her numerous TV appearances across a variety of programs, Sarah Palin has likewise proven she can draw an audience. Yet her show won’t come cheap. Governor Palin’s agent is asking $1.5 million per episode but considering the millions and millions of viewers it is a bargain.  It will most likely be the most watched documentary in history.

The high-definition program will be shot in a style similar to “Life” or the 11-part “Planet Earth” and will feature Sarah Palin as a guide to the Alaskan outdoors.

Sarah Palin: The Shadow President. Obama: State-Run Media’s Favorite Harvard Elitist.

Posted by citizens4palin on January 9, 2010

Several reactions to Sarah Palin’s facebook post. Many from a great Resource: Doug Brady of Conservatives 4 Palin.

Chris Cillizza at WaPo:

We’ve noted before in this space that former Alaska governor Sarah Palin is using Facebook to serve as a sort of shadow president, a constant counter to President Obama on nearly every issue. Palin’s latest missive came late Tuesday when she decried Obama’s approach to terrorism as “fatally flawed” because the administration sees the issue through a law enforcement lens rather than a national security one. Palin’s Facebook riffs allow her to speak directly to those who share her worldview without having to wade through questions from the news media seeking deeper answers to the complex problems she is addressing. The goal? Perhaps to install Palin as the obvious foil to the current president thereby giving her the right of first refusal when the 2012 Republican presidential primary fight comes around.

Another Black Conservative:

From the moment Janet Napolitano came out with her clown statement that the “system worked”, you just knew Sarah Palin was going to have something to say about how this administration handles terror.

In typical no nonsense fashion Palin points out the emptiness of Obama’s latest statements and calls out the various absurdities of treating terror suspects as common criminals.

How is it that Palin, who the left would have us believe is a hayseed, can in three simple paragraphs so clearly state who are enemy is, the threat that they pose and the correct way to deal with them, meanwhile the supposed “intellectual giant” Obama needs days and days and days to state the obvious that the system failed?

Mark Noonan:

This shows a clear sighted grasp of what we’re up against and likely reflects the fact that Sarah Palin has had far more real world and executive experience than Obama has – even after Obama has been in office for nearly a year. Obama needs to wake up from the leftist delusions about why terrorists do what they do. He also needs to lay aside ivory tower concepts of how terrorists should be treated when captured. If he doesn’t change, very soon, then the cost of his policies will be paid for in blood.

We made a horrendous mistake in November of 2008 and we can only partially undo it in 2010 – for the most part, we’re stuck with our foolishness until January 20th, 2013. Let this be a lesson to those who complain that this or that GOP candidate isn’t conservative “enough” – true, always better to have a true-blue conservative, but better a RINO than a liberal Democrat. Lives are at stake, and we can’t mess around and hope to put it all back together again later.

Blog Stella Pundit:

When the really hard times hit this year – and oh, they will – Americans will find no reassuring strength or warmth in the newly royalist White House. And in their pain and despair, they will turn to the motherly dynamo from Alaska, Sarah Palin, who spends Christmas with her family serving a community dinner in her hometown of Wasilla. Sarah Palin, who always lovingly mentions the troops and their family’s sacrifice everywhere she goes. Sarah Palin, the Alaskan fox with a servant’s heart and a lion’s strength.

By the time the election of 2012 rolls around, it will merely confirm what is already well-established in the people’s minds and hearts: President Sarah Palin.

Hillbuzz:

Whether Democrats or the MSM realize it or not, a Resistance Movement is forming in this country. Regular citizens are starting to band together in preparation to do what political leaders and those in government are too stupid to do: resist this current president’s desperate slouch towards socialism and his fey, effete, ludicrously naive approach to Muslim terrorists.

Islam wants to destroy the West.

Islam is not a religion: it is a political, commercial, ideological, and criminal organization disguised as a religion so that it can use Liberals within our own borders as Fifth Column enablers of its attacks upon US interests.

The Resistance needs a leader, and we hope Governor Palin stands up in 2010 and becomes that woman, so in 2012 she can become our president.

Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit:

Sarah Palin schools the state-run media’s favorite Harvard elitist.  From her Facebook page Sarah Palin lectures Obama on his lack of comprehension

Lisa Graas:

Governor Palin’s firm, reasoned approach to combating terrorism ranks among her greatest strengths and her latest statement bears this out more clearly than ever. She is concise in her analysis and offers “no nonsense” language that cuts clearly through the obscurities in rhetoric commonly offered by President Obama.

Combating terrorism is arguably the weightiest issue falling within the realm of the President’s responsibilities toward the American people. For this reason, this particular statement by Governor Palin could be among her most important ever.[...]

It is comforting to me to know that Sarah Palin understands this threat and offers a clear and prominent voice in America’s public discourse as President Obama sleeps at the wheel. Governor Palin is right to say that his approach to terrorism is “fatally flawed”. In other words, any plan that is not based on an understanding of the problem outlined above is bound to fail.

It’s clear that America made a huge mistake in November 2008. Hopefully the country will get through the remaining three years of Obama’s tenure despite his reckless disregard for the safety of its citizens. I’m reminded of Governor Palin’s prophetic warning at her RNC speech:

Al-Qaida terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America … he’s worried that someone won’t read them their rights?

Stephanie Condon for CBS:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin railed against President Obama today, saying “his fundamental approach to terrorism is fatally flawed” and that “the real nature of the terrorist threat requires a commander-in-chief, not a constitutional law professor.”

The same day the president met with his national security team to discuss the security reviews he ordered after the alleged attempt to blow up a plane on Christmas Day, Palin posted a note on Facebook criticizing the administration’s response to the event.[...]

Palin fails to address the fact that the Bush administration prosecuted “shoe bomber” Richard Reid, an al Qaeda operative, in civilian court, and he is now serving a life term in maximum-security prison.

WHY DOES THE LEFT KEEP BRING UP THIS POINT?  The response is the same, if it is Richard Reid or the Christmas Day bomber the same mistake was made: allowing them to lawyer up and than clam up.

Sarah Palin In Charge Obama Taking Cover

Posted by citizens4palin on December 27, 2009


Great post at Stop The ACLU, by Warner Todd Huston, tells us like it is: Old Media Whines That Palin is Mean to Them Get the pity party violin music warmed up because Ezra Klein and Dave Weigel are whining that Sarah Palin has forced them, the press, into a “submissive role” because she is so mean to them.

Klein favorably cites the analysis of Weigel who whined that the “Palin problem” has “put the press in a submissive position:”

  • The problem is that Palin has put the political press in a submissive position, one in which the only information it prints about her comes from prepared statements or from Q&As with friendly interviewers.  This isn’t something most politicians get away with, or would be allowed to get away with. But Palin has  leveraged her celebrity — her ability to get ratings, the ardor of her fans and the bitterness of her critics —  to win a truly unique relationship with the press. She is allowed to shape the public debate without actually engaging in it. [...]

However, Klein’s whining about Palin aside, he does have a good point about the failure of the press to place the news in the greater context of the reality of the world even as he papers over the fact that newspapers are, indeed, working hard to pass lies as news

  • For one thing, newspapers work very hard to report things that are true, but they are less concerned with  whether the overall impression from their reporting is a true impression. Shark attacks, for instance,  happen very rarely. But if you report excitedly on every shark attack that happens, people will think they  happen quite a bit. [...]

For instance, the “news” has been floating the idea that the recent unemployment numbers did not grow and newspapers have marked that as an “unexpected drop” in unemployment as if it’s all good news. However, few papers have bothered to mention that this has been a tiny drop in rates during a steady years-long rise in unemployment. The impression is that good news was had, but the facts prove otherwise. Context is ignored in order to make Obama seem a success.

Anyway, it is amusing to see the Old Media crying that Palin is messing with them like this. An unexpected Christmas present if there ever was one.

Sarah Palin’s Death Panels: In BOTH Reid & Pelsoi’s Health Care Bills (Pages Provided)

Posted by citizens4palin on December 23, 2009

Dingy Harry Reid slipped in a provision into the health care legislation prohibiting future Congresses from changing any regulations imposed on Americans by the Independent Medical Advisory Boards, which are commonly called the Death Panels. It is section 3403 from pages 1,000 to 1,0007 of the Reid substitute.

There is established an independent board to be known as the ‘Independent Medicare Advisory Board:

PURPOSE.—It is the purpose of this section to, in accordance with the following provisions of this section, reduce the per capita rate of growth in Medicare spending.

  • By requiring the Chief Actuary of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to determine in each year to which this section applies the projected per capita growth rate under Medicare for the second year following the determination year.
  • If the projection for the implementation year exceeds the target growth rate for that year, by requiring the Board to develop and submit during the first year following the determination year this a proposal containing recommendations to reduce the Medicare per capita growth rate to the extent required by this section by requiring the Secretary to implement such proposals unless Congress enacts legislation pursuant to this section.

1. Page 1811 Advisory Board On Elder Abuse, Neglect And Exploitation
2. Page 1977 Personal Care Attendants Workforce Advisory Panel
3. Page 1648 Patient-Centered Outcomes Research expert advisory panel
4. Page 1660 Expert Advisory Panel For Rare Disease & Expert Advisory Panels For Clinical Trials

Funny how the liberals at Politifact (Death Panels: Lie of the Year) or the St. Petersburg Times are so blinded by their liberalism they actually do no fact checking.  On top of that they miss the underlining characteristics of all government agencies and the services they provide.  All governments are incredibly inefficient, wasteful and always provide lower quality compared to the private sector faced with competition.  To lower costs they are incapable of becoming efficient and will always resort to reducing services.  Government health care is no different but our lives are directly affected. Death Panels have been in every health care bill which includes dozens of advisory boards, panels and committees with the responsibility of reducing costs at our expense.

But what can you say, like any gullible fool who thought for even a milli-second that Obama is qualified or worthy to be president has severe judgement problems.  So when those that voted for and supported the disaster Obama speak of Sarah Palin all we need to do is simply apply the opposite.

The Pelsoi Health Care Bill is also riddled with various bureaucratically appointed advisory boards, committees and panels  with the duties of cutting costs:
