Like Shootin’ Moose In A Barrel, Sarah Palin Slaps Barack Obama Down Again Over Death Panels

Posted by Gary P Jackson on August 13, 2009

Can you imagine being Barack Obama these days?

I mean here you are only seven and a half months into your one and only term as president and your whole world is crashing down around you. Your signature issue, turning America into some sort of communist utopia, by usurping the constitution through your “health care” plan, is circling the drain.

You have angry Americans who have never been politically active in their lives fired up against you and the rest of your party. You will basically go down in history as the person who destroyed the democrat party. An epic failure.

And then there is this woman who your minions have been trying to destroy for almost a year who has your number, big time!

First she let you and the party have just enough rope and then calmly wrote two words on her Facebook page, “death panels.”

Then she just kicked backed and watched you, the democrats, the RINOs, the media, and well, everybody, go nuts trying to get out of this mess.

Now normal people understand that there won’t literally be death panels.

They also understand, however, that between the various medical boards who will decide what sort of standards and practices will be used, and what procedures will be appropriate for each group, combined with the bean counters, there will be defacto “death panels.”

Every nation that has socialized medicine rations health care. That’s indisputable fact.

But you, Barack Obama, along with your party had to take the bait didn’t you!

Instead of regrouping, you’ve sent Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and the rest of the bunch out to call American citizens a “mob” and “Nazis,” which is hilarious, because Nazis were socialists, kinda like modern day democrats!

You even sent out the union thugs from SEIU to attack unarmed dissenters!

But while you were doing all of this, those two little words from Sarah Palin, were turning the debate on it’s ear! Regular folks were hearing “death panels” and going to see what that was all about. They actually started reading the House bill H.R. 3200, all 1017 pages of it, for themselves.

That really got ‘em fired up!

But Mr Obama, you couldn’t let well enough alone. Since you obviously are allergic to the air in Washington, or think you are still campaigning for office, you went running off to Portsmouth, NH for a totally spontaneous and completely unrehearsed “townhall meeting.”

Group photo of participants at Portsmouth, NH townhall event:

Sarah, is in your head for sure and it shows!

Since TOTUS tried to commit suicide on you a few weeks back, you have not been at your best. No one to keep you from saying really stupid stuff like when you told the totally neutral and unbiased Portsmouth crowd that AARP was on board with your devious plans.

AARP was pretty quick to come out and say “not really pal!”

But this was classic! Here you are trying to sell the country on your communist boondoggle:

“UPS and FedEx are doing just fine. It’s the Post Office that’s always having problems”

___Barack Obama

I’m sure plenty of beverages were spewed all over America when they heard that one!

The very best though was when you took a swing and a miss at the ball Palin pitched to you. You actually had to bring up the death panels again! You ever think at some point people might just forget the bad stuff if you quit bringing it up?

You really are making this too easy!

At this point Sarah is just playing with you. I mean it’s like having a cat and a string.

Barack Obama and democrat party “leaders” pictured below:

So from her lakeside home in beautiful Wasilla, Alaska, Sarah has sent you a message via her Facebook page:

Concerning the “Death Panels”

Yesterday President Obama responded to my statement that Democratic health care proposals would lead to rationed care; that the sick, the elderly, and the disabled would suffer the most under such rationing; and that under such a system these “unproductive” members of society could face the prospect of government bureaucrats determining whether they deserve health care.

The President made light of these concerns. He said:

“Let me just be specific about some things that I’ve been hearing lately that we just need to dispose of here. The rumor that’s been circulating a lot lately is this idea that somehow the House of Representatives voted for death panels that will basically pull the plug on grandma because we’ve decided that we don’t, it’s too expensive to let her live anymore….It turns out that I guess this arose out of a provision in one of the House bills that allowed Medicare to reimburse people for consultations about end-of-life care, setting up living wills, the availability of hospice, etc. So the intention of the members of Congress was to give people more information so that they could handle issues of end-of-life care when they’re ready on their own terms. It wasn’t forcing anybody to do anything.”

__Barack Obama

The provision that President Obama refers to is Section 1233 of HR 3200, entitled “Advance Care Planning Consultation.” With all due respect, it’s misleading for the President to describe this section as an entirely voluntary provision that simply increases the information offered to Medicare recipients. The issue is the context in which that information is provided and the coercive effect these consultations will have in that context.

Section 1233 authorizes advanced care planning consultations for senior citizens on Medicare every five years, and more often “if there is a significant change in the health condition of the individual … or upon admission to a skilled nursing facility, a long-term care facility… or a hospice program.” During those consultations, practitioners must explain “the continuum of end-of-life services and supports available, including palliative care and hospice,” and the government benefits available to pay for such services.

Now put this in context. These consultations are authorized whenever a Medicare recipient’s health changes significantly or when they enter a nursing home, and they are part of a bill whose stated purpose is “to reduce the growth in health care spending.” Is it any wonder that senior citizens might view such consultations as attempts to convince them to help reduce health care costs by accepting minimal end-of-life care? As Charles Lane notes in the Washington Post, Section 1233 “addresses compassionate goals in disconcerting proximity to fiscal ones…. If it’s all about alleviating suffering, emotional or physical, what’s it doing in a measure to “bend the curve” on health-care costs?”

As Lane also points out:

Though not mandatory, as some on the right have claimed, the consultations envisioned in Section 1233 aren’t quite “purely voluntary,” as Rep. Sander M. Levin (D-Mich.) asserts. To me, “purely voluntary” means “not unless the patient requests one.” Section 1233, however, lets doctors initiate the chat and gives them an incentive — money — to do so. Indeed, that’s an incentive to insist.

Patients may refuse without penalty, but many will bow to white-coated authority. Once they’re in the meeting, the bill does permit “formulation” of a plug-pulling order right then and there. So when Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) denies that Section 1233 would “place senior citizens in situations where they feel pressured to sign end-of-life directives that they would not otherwise sign,” I don’t think he’s being realistic.

Even columnist Eugene Robinson, a self-described “true believer” who “will almost certainly support” “whatever reform package finally emerges”, agrees that “If the government says it has to control health-care costs and then offers to pay doctors to give advice about hospice care, citizens are not delusional to conclude that the goal is to reduce end-of-life spending.”

So are these usually friendly pundits wrong? Is this all just a “rumor” to be “disposed of”, as President Obama says? Not according to Democratic New York State Senator Ruben Diaz, Chairman of the New York State Senate Aging Committee, who writes:

Section 1233 of House Resolution 3200 puts our senior citizens on a slippery slope and may diminish respect for the inherent dignity of each of their lives…. It is egregious to consider that any senior citizen … should be placed in a situation where he or she would feel pressured to save the government money by dying a little sooner than he or she otherwise would, be required to be counseled about the supposed benefits of killing oneself, or be encouraged to sign any end of life directives that they would not otherwise sign.

Of course, it’s not just this one provision that presents a problem. My original comments concerned statements made by Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a health policy advisor to President Obama and the brother of the President’s chief of staff. Dr. Emanuel has written that some medical services should not be guaranteed to those “who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens….An obvious example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia.” Dr. Emanuel has also advocated basing medical decisions on a system which “produces a priority curve on which individuals aged between roughly 15 and 40 years get the most chance, whereas the youngest and oldest people get chances that are attenuated.”

President Obama can try to gloss over the effects of government authorized end-of-life consultations, but the views of one of his top health care advisors are clear enough. It’s all just more evidence that the Democratic legislative proposals will lead to health care rationing, and more evidence that the top-down plans of government bureaucrats will never result in real health care reform.”

Now Mr Obama, Barack, I know being a community organizer must give you a lot of insight or something cool like that, but while you were running around the country campaigning for president on the taxpayers dime, after abandoning your Senate seat, Sarah Palin was actually dealing with a health care crisis in Alaska! Thanks to the federal government, it’s rules, and regulations the poor and elderly had long waits and poor health care.

You see, elderly Medicaid patients were facing those “mythical” death panels daily. Thanks to Palin’s efforts she was able to reduce the Medicaid backlog by 83 % in just two years. An incredible feat.

So Barack Obama, democrats, media, whoever, please keep on quoting Sarah Palin. Keep talking about her. Heck, even make fun of her!

All of you are just pawns on her chess board!

Sarah Palin has your number and it’s going to be a really long 3 years!

    I believe Sarah palin is a people person, I did not vote for Palin/mccain,I will vote for Sarah palin if she runs for Pres.2012,I understand the healthcare and a bureaucrat will weigh Grandmas agevs cost of surgery and deny! (death panel) option is unimportant if plan is passed the rates will quadruple for employers and private insurance and no 1 will be able to afford anyway!

  4. Gregory A said

    I thank you Mrs. Palin. We can not let a minority of selfserving, single minded, out of touch elitists, force their agenda opun us. If truth be known we conservatives are the liberal side of America because we have let them live their anything goes lifestyles, allowing them to slowly step on our constitutional rights and pass laws affecting our behavior concerning our rights to an open relationship with our creator. Now their tring to affect our behavior in evory aspect of our life. They have been pushing us into a corner for years, and the minute we push back we are the unreasonable, unamerican party of NO. We can change this people next Nov 2010. GOD Bless you all. keep the faith.

    • Just remember it wasn’t just Dems their are Repubs that were in on this disaster we are going thru.But not all Dems and not all Repub are bad but we are finding out who is with the American people and who is for Control and it is on both sides.Trust but VERIFY no more pandering and false promises.Words mean nothing it is their actions and their voting record that has to be used to realy know who they are.

  5. Lyn Stevens said

    The Republicans have been excluded from any input into the health care bill. IF you keep up with the news you should know this by now. On youtube there is a host of committee debates where the republicans are complaining that they are being excluded and Pelosi is threatening Democrats if they help the Republicans. So “un-American” of Pelosi.

  6. Debrabee said

    I am sooo glad I found this website. I love how straight forward and to the point you are. We needed something like this to go to other than the Obama-fed news networks. Thank you so much. I can’t wait for Sarah to kick his butt in 2012! He is OUTTA here! You go girl! I am behind 100% and will be voluntering in my town to get you elected.

  7. Diana Copp said

    If God be for us,,,who can be against us! Sarah,,,it pleases me to see how the Almighty is using you! I know who pads your footsteps! You continue to make all darkness manifest to the light! God Bless you!

    • Those that look to GOD are always in the light and truth and it will be on GOD’S time for Sara not ours but she is doing great and I know GOD’S hand is in it.Those that are blind stumbling in darkness some day all their eyes will be opened.Satan has many names DEATH,DARKNESS,SERPENT,LUCIFER,SON OF PERDITION,LIAR,EVIL ONE,CONFUSION,DESTROYER anything that is not of GOD is of Satan.Get out of the darkness and into the light of truth.THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE.Christianity is not a religion is is a REALITY,LIFE.We aren’t perfect but when we try do what is RIGHT in GOD’S eyes he forgives.But it is not a license to sin you learn and stay on the straight path and keep your eye on the LORD always and you will be happier and peace in your life and everyday living.He never promised us a rose garden but we are can do children of the LIVING GOD.

      GOD BLESS EACH AND EVERYONE and KEEP UP THE PRAYERS.

    The only problem I truely have with the republicans right now is the simple fact that all they seem to be doing is is complaining about what Obama is doing.Do something consructive!If there not complaining they are going on and on about how he is trying to turn the country Socialist.Instead of complaining why don’t you start throwing solutions Obamas way.If you see that he is doing something that you don’t like why don’t you say what you think is is wrong with it and what he can do to make things better.No one has time for the bickering.

    • I agree where are they stepping out and calling out some of the Czars that have his ear.What are they afraid of.The Dems and Repub should fear us.WE THE PEOPLE their employers and the pink slips will be flying in 2010 that is one thing they CAN BELIEVE IN. CHANGE IS COMING BUT NOT THE KIND THEY WILL LIKE.

  9. stella Xifaras-Piva said

    To Mrs. Palin,

    Please get a copy of the insurance coverage the members of Congress, Senate, the President and the rest of the politicians get “for the rest of their life”. Then give the specific terms to us, the people. We will do the comparisons and when their best of care insurance coverage is made public, every American will agree to go on it!!!

    End of health care debate, for sure!

  10. KMDay said

    Oustanding Post! It is refreshing to see the proof of what happens when he does not have a teleprompter in front of him and the true Obama comes out. Equating Health Care to the US Post Office? LOL…..2 weeks ago they were in front of John McCain’s committee begging for stimulus money because they are in the red…outstanding! Read the article in the NY Post where they used their post office in NY to show Obama just exactly how this would compare to GOvernment Run Health Care……

    Do you think maybe that the Dem’s now wish they had left Sarah alone in AK?

    Currently, she is clearly on a ‘warpath’ against the Obamacare nightmare, as she continues to hammer, bit by bit, this piece of socialist trash.

    And when it has been stumped and killed, the Cap-n-Tax, et. al. will then be in her sights (and boy can she shoot).

    GO SARAH!!

  12. Reg Thibodeau said

    Sarah Palin is not only an incredible human being, she gives me hope for America at a time when Obama’s dishonest attempts to socialize America leaves me feeling that hope is in short supply.

  13. will conyers said

    thank you sarah, maybe God has a plan for you. lots of people are praying for you and this country. obama is a instrument of the devil. If God be for use, who can be against us. we just need to get God back in our country. maybe you could ask americans to humble themselves and pray that God will heal our land.

    • I totally agree the one person next to Sara speech at the Republican National Convention was a business man and for the life of me I can’t remember his name but said those exact words we need to turn back to GOD and ask for forgivenss.He even spoke how he thought he didn’t need GOD because everything was going great then things started to tumble fast and realized where he went wrong and when he asked GOD to forgive him and started putting him first things came back around and I was so thrilled to hear someone finally give credit where credit was due for all the Richness and Blessing he has bestowed on our Nation but we can stop recieveing them just as fast when we take GOD out of the equasion after all he owns it all and lends it to us but how we choose to use it is up to us and how we lose it us up to us it is called FREE WILL.We have to decide do we stand with GOD or evil.I stand with GOD he will never leave you or forsake you and will never put on you more then you can handle and will always show you a way thru it,around it,under it,over it.Knock and the door shall be open unto you,Seek and ye shall find,Speak and he will hear that is a promise you can count on.GOD BLESS YOU SARA AND GOD BE WITH YOU AND LEAD YOU AND PROTECT.

    Mrs. Palin,
    I am a fan. I was raised Republician and still vote that way. I have been made fun of because it due the fact that my family is considered low income. I agree with you on all the issues Mr. Obama has tried to push on us. Until he took office my husband had a job. But after Mr. Obama started changing things that had worked for years, the company my husband worked for, a small plumbing company has had to cut back. I think we as Americans need to wake and see that he is ruining a great country. Sure we have had problems in the past but he lied to voters telling them that all would be fixed. Well, from where I stand it is only getting worse by the day. There are no jobs out there for hard working Americans. We live in small farming community in South Georgia and are just barely keeping our heads above the water. Unemployment here is at an all time high. Why not fix that? Sure everyone needs some sort if health care but when people can’t afford to buy food or pay their bills there is a huge problem. Let’s just say I would really like to give Mr. Obama a piece of my mind! Keep up the good fight and NEVER back down from the bully Obama.
    Thank You, Kristi

    I want to thankyou for speaking out againist this plan.
    We needed someone with experience and intergity to stand up this this mob in Washington.
    I am a Veteran and will say that those folks in Washington are wild and need to be slowed down.
    I live in the hills here in Arkansas and will tell you folks around these parts are scared of what the future will bring.
    We the People are looking forward to 2010 and 2012 for the elections.
    Again Govenor Palin, thanks for speaking out for We the People.

  22. politics before poeple said

    give everyone the same health plan that government get

  23. Governor Sara Palin
    From the first time you were on the national scene and I heard you speak I have been a supporter. I am 70 and over my life time have voted every which way dem,rupb,and ind,but have always voted by my own morals and values. I am and have been conservative the most part of my voting years. I believe America is in deep trouble with Mr.Obamma as resident in the white house.
    Not because I don’t like Blacks,but because of his socialist take over agenda. People are people..just that..we are all Americans first and united as one nation under God. Race is meaningless to me as our race is Americans. Be proud of your heritage to be sure,but I am not a German-French American…. I am American of European/ or / German-French decent. I hate the term Afro-American or German American..We Are One People united in our country. I think this needs to be stated More as Afro/German American tends to divide us.
    My wife and I have raised 8 children the last two being adopted/ “we were foster parents”
    Our youngest is a black man now and Very smart because of his own ability. We had him as a foster child at 6/mo’s and when he was around two had the offer to adopt him and his sister “who is white” used to kid them about being ftwins as we adopted them on the same day. She is normal and has her own family now.
    Our adopted son ” we feel they were both born to us ” a gift from God ! of course and they are ! the boy was abused by his bio-father at 4/mo’s old and suffers C.P. and requires total care. Sorry I wrote so much,but he is the main reason of this letter.
    Governor Paylin we don’t trust Mr. Obama and his socialist health care plan !
    Please never let up and keep speaking up for ALL Americans especially those who have such a weak voice.

    Thank you
    Dennis R Fleury

    I think this “health” care should be mandatory for only democrats who voted for this debacle in white house and simply leave normal people alone to go our merry way without government intervention.

  28. Richard Thomas said

    Dear Sarah

    You are truly a patriot and I applaud your outspoken ways! My wife and I applaud you in your brave efforts to be heard at this crucial time in the history of our wonderful and blessed nation and cannot wait to hear what comes out of your thoughtful, well spoken dialog next! We lived in out-back Alaska for 12 wonderful years – Nome, Kodiak, Dot Lake – and the independent, pioneer spirit that rubbed off on us during that time in our professional careers is one of my most cherished possessions. So – give it to them, Sarah! Give it to them right between the eyes. Who knows but what your inspired words will bring the opposition down to their knees just like David’s tiny pebble did when it shot through Goliath’s forehead. Think of that – a tiny pebble directed by the finger of God routed the massive enemies of Israel! We pray that God will sustain you with courage each day to do what He has called you to do. I am SO proud of you! There is only a very slim chance that we will ever meet here on God’s green earth. But we’ll see you on the other side when all the events of this age have passed on into ashes and dust. That would be something like 100 years from right now. Until then, God Bless!!

    Richard

    Boy what a breath of fresh air you are, go get ’em girl.
    Pat and I are behind you 100%. We know that what ever you plan to do about the confounded present situation it will be the right thing. How on earth did we ever get into such a mess.
    Ever had a ride on a Rolligon up on the north slope. Those vehicles that have big bags for tires. I helped breath life into those things. I was on the trip when we drove three of them from
    Fairbanks to the slope in ’72, no roads. Pretty gutsy.
