The stubborn yet false rumor that President Obama’s health care proposals would create government-sponsored “death panels” to decide which patients were worthy of living seemed to arise from nowhere in recent weeks.-- Jim Rutenberg and Jackie CalmesThe beauty about being a Liberal is that you can call someone a liar while it is you who is actually doing the lying by doing so!
Confusing? Well not as much as the recent row over death panels in the Democrats Health Care Reform bill. Gov. Sarah Palin has been pronounced the latest Conservative nut job because she actually read the bill and discovered a provision that allow a provision for end of life “health care.”
This is a provision that Senators, getting a clue from the controversy that such a revelation has caused, have thusly yanked from their version of the health care bill. (see story)
Which is interesting because everyone from the media to Barack Obama where dispelling the very notion that there was such an idea as committees making end-of-life decisions but a lot can be hidden in 1017 of unread pages.
“There are some things I've been hearing lately that we need to dispose of. The rumor that's been circulating around lately is, the House of Representatives somehow voted for death panels that will basically pull the plug on Grandma 'cause we've decided it's too expensive to let her live anymore.The fact is the health care bill passed by three House committees allows Medicare to reimburse doctors for voluntary counseling sessions about end-of-life decisions. Such a provision the Senate concluded could be misinterpreted or implemented incorrectly and could lead to death panels and euthanasia for seniors so they dropped their version of that provision.
This arose out of a provision in one of the House bills that allows Medicare to reimburse people for consultations for end-of-life care. The irony is, that actually one of the chief sponsors of the bill [Republican Sen. Johnny Isakson] ... very sensibly thought this is something that would expand people's options, that got spun into this idea of death panels. I am not in favor of that. I want to clear the air here." –Barack Hussein Obama
That’s exactly what Gov. Palin said! Yet assuming that Palin is a Conservative therefore she could not be right the media jumped to the defense of their fellow Liberals in government and pronounced Palin wrong which was a lie on the Media’s part.
So once again we get the false headlines that Conservatives are wrong and false when in actuality it is MSNBC and the president who are wrong, misleading and false. (see example)
Which again speaks to little Julia Hall’s question to Barack Obama how can kids (or anyone) know what is true?
Knowing what is true has become increasingly more difficult with the Obamedia (a fusion of Obama worship and media partisan reporting) and the Obama administration working hand-in-hand to obfuscate reality with socialist propaganda and a neo-socialist worldview.
One thing is for certain Americans are not going to arrive at the truth by listening to the Obamedia, Democrats in Congress or the Obama administration.
Only voices like Sarah Palin can counterbalance the false claims of Obamedia and the president with truth. And as the Senate demonstrated Gov. Palin was right the president is wrong again on this issue as he has been wrong on so many!
