Sarah Palin Claims Obama's "Death Panel" Could Kill Her SonSunny Chanel
Apparently Obama’s proposed health care plan intends to off Sarah Palin’s son Trig. Palin addressed the subject of the proposed nationalized health care reform plan with concerns that her youngest child who has Down Syndrome runs the risk of losing his life if the plan goes ahead.
There has been misinformation about this Death Race 2000 or Logan’s Run type scenario where the old, ill and disabled would be cleansed off the healthcare list with just letting them die. Now, this has been widely debated and there hasn’t been, to my knowledge, anything to support offing the old. But this very unlikely fate has been a rallying cry for protesters taking over the town hall meetings and for conservative pundits hitting the airwaves.
“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.”
Is this Palin’s way to play the Hitler card, where some critics are comparing Obama to history’s greatest monster? One commenter said in regards to the Palin’s statement “The only difference between Hitler killing off the “undesirables” and the dems plan – is dems have doctors and committees doing it one elderly person or one downs syndrome person at a time… While Hitler wanted it done more quickly.” [Insert your own shock or awe here.]
But a “death panel” for babies? Really? Is this just a way to rally the troops around a common innocent victim’? The elderly dying doesn’t pack nearly as much punch as a young baby or child. But how about all those babies or children who don’t have any insurance at all? Aren’t they up against their own invisible “death panel” by way of not getting any care or treatment for their ailments at all.
