Sarah Palin is Owed a Huge Apology

Sarah Palin was exactly right about death panels as this caller attests. Tonight, a brain surgeon called into Mark Levin’s radio show and said that he had just recently visited Washington DC to review Obama’s new health care plan for advanced neurosurgical care for patients over 70 years old, issued by HHS. The plan, that included “ethics panels”, stated that if your were over 70 years old and on government supported healthcare and you visited an emergency room, you get “comfort care”:

Here’s an expert from the call:

Caller: Basically what the document stated was that if you were over 70 and you’d come into an emergency room and you’re on government supported health care, that you’d get “comfort care”.

Mark Levin: Wait a minute…what’s the source for this?

Caller: This is Obama’s new health care plan for advanced neurosurgical care.

Mark Levin: And who issued this? HHS?

Caller: Yes. And basically they don’t call them patients, they call them units. And instead of – they call it “ethics panels” or “ethics committees”, would get together and meet and decide where the money would go for hospitals, and basically for patients over 70 years of age, that advanced neurosurgical care was not generally indicated.

Mark Levin: So it’s generally going to be denied?

    I hope this spreads quickly all over the country and people realize it won’t end there. Hopefully that knowledge will be the true death knell for Obamacare.

    If that thread title is not the understatement of the year :(

    Governor/Patriot Sarah Louise Heath Palin and her family is owed multiple apologies from multiple sleazebags, ever since she first entered the national stage 3 years ago

    But since the destructive leftwing haterz never apologize (only blame others) for what they alone are guilty of, it’ll never happen…

    The whole world owes Sarah that much and more. They did not even know her and they bashed her at every turn. None of it was justified and shown the true nature of hate on the left for anything that isn’t them.

    Cuppa Joe Biden and Hairy Reed both appear to need neurosurgery of some sort. Poor, poor Hairy will be out of luck and Cuppa Joe soon will be reaching his 70th. Wait, silly me. They will still have their exclusive and special health care system and will be exempt from the proletariat health “care” system the rest of us will endure.

    Before Sarah made her decision not to run, she was trashed by the left practically 24/7. Now, we don’t hear a peep, do we? The left is SO repugnant.

    Just because everyone has health insurance doesn’t mean we all have healthcare.

    I heard this live yesterday. How otherworldly Orwellian can you get that people are now “units”.

    Is this the utopia the lefties are striving for? Really?

    What’s next, Carousel??!?

    Peculiar, isn’t it, that the cut off is 70 years of age when most people would be just retiring and not paying much in taxes at that point…

    The Democrats rammed ObamaCare through before it could be properly analyzed and subjected to scrutiny. With regard to those components of ObamaCare that did manage to see the public light of day prior to passage – the Democrats just lied about it. Why this is not sufficient cause to toss every Democrat who voted for this thing out on his or her ear is beyond me.

    The “re-education camp” of dehumanizing the citizens by referring to them as “units.” Makes it easier to kill us without remorse. Palin was right, go figure.

    I was going to change my name like Conservative Cowunit did, but “BigUnit” sounded too risque.

    I’ve been saying this from the git-go. Your hospital already has an ethics panel. Now they have a financial qualifier to consider when weighing the merits of a given case. Not death panels but ethics boards.

    I don’t owe Governor Palin an apology. I believed her when she said it.

    The unconstitutional anti-health care law aka obowmaouncare has ‘DEATH PANELS’. I knew it. She said it.

    The left NEVER admit mistakes.

    I’ll stick with Sarah!

    Sarah Palin is owed more than just one apology. She’s been right on Obamacare, energy, the economy. She’s been fearless in her defense of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. She’s rock solid, and yet she’s on the sidelines while the idiot flavors of the month rise and fall. We cry out to God for leadership, and then crucify it when it’s given. God help America.

    Mark’s conversation with the neurosurgeon will be played in Hour 3 of his “best of” show on Thursday. You can also pull it up on his website. The conversation was astounding and confirmed everything I believed about Obamanation Care.

    Referring to people as “units” further advances the dehumanization of the populace making abortion, infanticide, euthanasia etc more “palatable” than the out and out murder those procedures are. The libtards want to pull us further into the Culture of Death that is rampant in this country. Put God and prayer back in the schools and see the positive effects they have on society.

    To answer the Doofus who says Sarah owes the people of Alaska an apology – like HE!!………. You Liberals kept throwing lawsuits at her so much she didn’t have time to answer them and do her job, as governor. She won them all, by the way, so you owe her an apology while crawling on your yellow belly licking her hunting boots!

    70YR. Old brother needs hip replaced. Because of obamacare he has to have 8 therapy sessions to determine if he gets it. His doc is furious that a man in horrific pain and clearly needs this done has to endure this to “prove” his eligibility. But it gets worse, even if he gets it the insurance limits you on therapy and because he will have had the 8 therapy sessions before surgery, then after when he actually needs therapy he will get virtually none! I guess obama and the demonrats have devised a plan for mass genocide of americans 70 and older. May God help us!
