Death panels will be cost savers, neat-o


Good news! The O-scare monstrosity does have cost saving items: "death panels" will actually save money - by not treating people or getting rid of people! Isn't that just peachy?

Hat tip "mean ol' meany" and "I Hate The Media" who note Mr. Paul Krugman's position inadvertantly supports Sarah Palin's warning about rationing.

Krugman: Think about people on the right. They’re simultaneously screaming, they’re going to send all of the old people to death panels and it’s not going to save any money. That’s a contradictory point of view.

Tapper: Death panels would save money, theoretically.

Krugman: The advisory path has the ability to make more or less binding judgments on saying this particular expensive treatment actually doesn’t do any good medically and so we’re not going to pay for it. That is actually going to save quite a lot of money. We don’t know how much yet. The CBO gives it very little credit. But most of the health care economists I talk to think it’s going to be a really major cost saving.



Yes, as Mr. Krugman states, death panels are "going to be a really major cost saving"! Neat-o!

    Perhaps the biggest offence and the one that is most covered up by the schools and the media isn’t the racist roots of the Democratic party, the sexual abuse, sexual assault, drug use/abuse, nor their support for the killing of unbornchildren, but their well designed and well hidden use of eugenics, a system of removing undesirables from society pre-birth, is hidden behind the fa├žade of

    Planned Parenthood and a woman’s right to choose.

    Eugenics, one of Hitler’s tools in eliminating the Jews is back under the Obama administration, in a big way.

    B. Hussein Obama supports Planned Parenthood and tries to fund them with your tax dollars at every turn.

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg favors eugenics, or so she has stated.

    Science Czar John Holdren wrote a book recently supporting eugenics to control the population and eliminate those that might become a burden upon society. And, Obama’s AG, Eric Holder gave a speech supporting Margaret Sanger, the pioneer of eugenics in America.

    Duringthe recent health care debate Bart Stupak pointed out Obama’s desire for government paid for abortions, the gateway to increased eugenics, based upon an unborn child’s likelihood off of having issues when born. Sadly the Democratic Party and the eugenicists within it do not see a woman’s right to choose as an abortion issue, but as a way to continue their racist history.

    Planned Parenthood offices, most abortions and those that B. Hussein Obama, Holder, and Holdren would like to see aborted come from areas with poor socioeconomic backgrounds and significantly higher rates of non-whites living there.

    The party of the Klan hasn’t changed, they have just polished their act and found a very lethal and sadly legal way to accomplish their goals. Those who look at B. Hussein Obama as proof that the Democratic Party is not racist need look no further than the fact that Obama is Muslim, Kenyan and half white, but entirely Marxist.

    Those in the Democratic Party who love America, believe in freedom and equality must take the party back from the progressives and Marxists that plague it. There is no time to wait.

  2. thanks Colonel...

    I have read about most of this here and there this year: you are absolutely correct.

    The Democratic party has been infiltrated, for decades, and is now urgently (before they are all kicked out of power0 following a communist (statist / facists / socialistic / fill-in-the-blank leftist horribleness) regime.

    The word REGIME is appropriate! America will have to fight its way out of the hornet's nest that is Washington's corrupt politicians, education system gone awry and comprised judges/military (Lt. Col Lakin's case comes to mind)

    god help us Colonel... keep up the fight!
