Folks, I am not the best writer you can find on the internet. Read my blog and I am sure you can find spelling and grammar errors. I can however read a sentence and understand it but apparently the MSM cannot. Sarah Palin's death panel comments have created a whirlwind of controversy in the press but all of the networks and pundits are misrepresenting what she actually said. They are ridiculing her statement by saying that end of life counseling is voluntary and does not decide to kill people and was actually included in the bill by a Republican. Guess what? THEY ARE RIGHT!
Sarah Palin has never made a statemnet refuting those facts. Her statement about the death panel was refering to what the results of rationing health care to control results would be. Nowhere in her statement did she mention the counseling arena. Her exact words were:
The Democrats promise that a government health care system will reduce the cost of health care, but as the economist Thomas Sowell has pointed 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.
Even I can see the lack of reference to end of life counseling and can figure out that she is referring to what will eventually come when the government continues to have trouble paying for their utopian health care sysytem. This does not require a PHD in English to understand. If I can read and understand this, then the reporters, commentators, and pundits spewing the lies about the context of Gov. Palins statement need to write to the universities they attended and demand a refund!
