This is not only about trying to demean the President’s health care law (which is bad, by the way) This is trying to make Palin’s statement real. Sarah Palin is Irrelevant and has lost credibility, her only job is bashing the President, and the racist right eat it up.
They even attack Politifact for posting it as LIE of the Year back in 2009. The idiots are running around the net screaming “Palin was right, Palin was right, Palin was right”!
No. She is NOT right, She was NEVER right. It’s a sad ploy to make Palin creditable and relevant again!
This is the same Halperin who called President Obama “a dick” on Joe Scarborough’s show. The President said something that he and Scarborough did not like in a speech the day before. They planned the tongue slip, but when Halperin went into his rant with Mika and Scarborough watching laughing in anticipation, the director in the control booth forgot to hit the buzzer when Halperin said “dick”. He was suspended for a couple of months. So I am not surprised at what Halperin says about a president he has never liked or respected.
Everybody and their next-of-kin, who is sane, sensible and can actually think for themselves, could have told that dumb fool that no “death panels” even exist at all.
The right don’t know How to read!
Mark Halperin addressed his previous comments on Tuesday, tweeting:
In Mon intv I did not say “death panels” nor do I believe ACA contains them. Was speaking of political/policy challenge of IPAB cuts. My bad
Please tell me exactly where death panels are spelled out in the ACA. You can’t, because it isn’t. What IS in the bill is this:
Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, page 490: The proposal shall not include any recommendation to ration health care, raise revenues or Medicare beneficiary premiums under section 1818, 1818A, or 1839, increase Medicare beneficiary cost sharing (including deductibles,co- insurance, and co-payments), or otherwise restrict benefits or modify eligibility criteria.
Healthcare rationing in the United States has occurred…BY INSURANCE COMPANIES PRIOR TO THE PASSAGE OF THE ACA!
This is becoming more and more the result of the 24/7 news cycle. There are no Death Panels. There isn’t any rationing of health care. However, the misinformation is out there again. I am sure it is all over the blogs and news comment websites, like HP. We no longer have journalists, we have talking heads bringing us their version and views on the news
Again, Nice Try, but Sarah Palin is WRONG!!!
