If she is so concerned about death panels why isn't she taking the insurance companies to task for denying life saving treatments to patients due to cost?
I guess she never heard of "Death by Spreadsheet". Insurance companies routinely scrutinize the applications of patients diagnosed with expensive-to-treat conditions, looking for an excuse to drop coverage. They dishonestly classify treatments like liver transplants as "experimental" to deny coverage. I guess Palin was too busy trying to figure out what that "Sputnik" thingy Obama was talking about is to figure this out. She's been watching those Russkis from her front porch all this time, and never saw a Sputnik, so Obama must have made that up.

(2) Under Obama care a person over the age of 70 will receive drugs to ease their suffering and "end of Life" counseling. A left way of saying assisted suicide.
Yeah, because we certainly would not want people getting drugs that ease the pain of terminal cancer, right? Just tell grandma to suck it up and deal with it. Builds character, and all that.
