Paul Krugman channels Sarah Palin, admits Death Panels will be required to keep Obamacare solvent
Eventually we do have a problem. That the population is getting older, health care costs are rising... there is this question of how we’re going to pay for the programs. The year 2025, the year 2030, something is going to have to give...
We’re going to need more revenue... Surely it will require some sort of middle class taxes as well... We won’t be able to pay for the kind of government the society will want without some increase in taxes... on the middle class, maybe a value added tax...
And we’re also going to have to make decisions about health care, doc pay for health care that has no demonstrated medical benefits.
So the snarky version... which I shouldn’t even say because it will get me in trouble is death panels and sales taxes is how we do this.
"Death panels and sales taxes is how we do this"?
Say, I wonder if the ill-named "Politifact" will formally apologize for calling Sarah Palin's reference to Obamamcare's death panels its 2009 "Lie of the Year", when it's now been verified by President Obama's favorite economist?
Or if The Chicago Tribune, which also called Palin's assertions "lies", will issue a formal retraction?
Or if Obama apologist Glenn Kessler, the Washington Post's error-prone "Fact Checker", will change his "Four Pinocchio" rating to "Fact"?
