article imageSarah Palin defends her 'death panel' remarks, blasts Pres. Obama

By Patrick McMahon     Aug 13, 2009 in Politics
Late Wednesday night, Sarah Palin posted another Facebook posting defending her controversial comments about health care reform containing provisions for "death panels" and further slams President Obama.
The former Alaskan governor has been under heavy fire from the White House, the Democratic Party, and even some Republicans for her comments that Democratic health care reform plans were "evil" and contained "death panels." Robert Gibbs, White House Press Secretary, has pointed to Palin as one of the people out there spreading wrong information about health care reform.
Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, pointed to Section 1233 of House Bill 3200 to back up her claims over "death panels." She said that reform of this magnitude would lead to health care rationing and therefore people would be evaluated over whether they deserve care or not. Governor Palin also accuses President Obama for making light over concerns about end of life care and for trying to push such a bill in the first place.
Over the past few weeks, town hall meetings have erupted into protests and shouting matches between politicians and average Americans. Among the many things discussed at these meetings is euthanasia, end of life care, and "death panels." Many have accused the Alaska Republican of fear mongering, a charge she vehemently denies, stating her concerns are well-founded.
