Finally A Senator Responds (Video) To Palin’s Death Panels: “Repeal Entire Law”; Deny Bureaucrats Power

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on June 28, 2012

The key remarks from Senator Barrasso are towards the end of the video in direct response to the question (from an MSNBC commentator) about death panels where he pointedly remarks about “faceless bureaucrats’ in respect of cost management leading to denying proper care.

Governor Palin’s complete post on the subject follows below without the MSNBC filter.


The Hill has the comments detailed below from Senator Barrasso in respect of Sarah Palin’s renewed attack on the Obama administrations health care law including her terming an aspect of the law as ‘death panels’.

Palin was roundly criticised by the left, but it is generally agreed that her attack on the Obama admin’s proposals created a massive resistance to them and may have been one of the major contributing factors to the Tea party movement which led to the GOP takeover of the House in 2010.

Senator Barrasso is vehemently opposed to the law and his opinion carries extra weight as he is a medical professional as well as a lawmaker.

The whole The Hill article is AT THIS LINK.

Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said Wednesday that a portion of the controversial healthcare overhaul legislation that’s designed to control Medicare costs will result in the denial of care for patients.
“You shouldn’t put anyone between their doctor and their patient, not an insurance company bureaucrat, not a government bureaucrat,” Barrasso said on MSNBC’s “Jansing & Co.”
Barrasso was responding to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s newly revived
claim that President Obama’s signature healthcare law would create
“death panels.”

“Though I was called a liar for calling it like it is, many of these accusers finally saw that ObamaCare did in fact create a panel of faceless bureaucrats who have the power to make life and death decisions about health care funding,” she wrote on her Facebook page Monday.

When asked whether Palin’s accusations were true, Barrasso said “I want to eliminate the entire law, have the entire law repealed.”


Governor Palin: “Death Panel” Three Years Later

Via Facebook::
As we wait for the impending Supreme Court decision on Obamacare, I reiterate what I wrote in myfirst post onthis topic nearly three years ago. I stand by everything I wrote inthat warning to my fellow Americans, because what was true then is true now, and it will remain true as we hear what the Supreme Courthas to say.Itwas a pretty long post, but a lot of people seem to have only read two words of it: “death panel.” Though I was called a liar for calling it like it is, many of these accusers finally saw that Obamacare did in fact create a panel of faceless bureaucrats who have the power to make life and death decisions about health care funding.
It’s called the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), and its purpose all along has been to “keep costs down” by actually denying care via price controls and typically inefficient bureaucracy. This subjective rationing of care is what I was writing about in that first post:

The Democrats promise that a government health care system will reduce the cost of health care, but as the economist Thomas Sowell haspointed out, government health care will not reduce the cost; it will simply refuse to pay the cost. And who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course. 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. Healthcare by definition involves life and death decisions. Human rights and human dignity must be at the center of any health care discussion.

Rep.Michele Bachmann highlighted the Orwellian thinking of the president’s health care advisor, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the brother of the White House chief of staff, in a floor speech to the House of  Representatives. I commend her for being a voice for the most precious members of our society, our children and our seniors. We must step up and engage in this most crucial debate. Nationalizing our health care system is a point of no return for government interference in the lives of its citizens. If we go down this path, there will be no turning back. Ronald Reagan once wrote, “Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth.” Let’s stop and think and make our voices heard before it’s too late.

If the Supreme Court doesn’t strike down Obamacare entirely, then Congress must act to repeal IPAB and Obamacare before it is indeed “too late.” All of Obamacare must go one way or another.
