You and your ilk are so painfully stupid, the English language fairly begs for a better means of expressing it. Even the term, "Sarah Palin" doesn't quite do it.

It won't be called death panel, but that is what it is. They are not Doctors, but will decide whether the eldely get future care, or will be allowed to die. You can call them something pretty, but they are a death panel, and everyone knows it except you.
Sarah Palin! Sarah Palin! Damn! Not good enough!

That's not a one-person death panel?
Don't confuse them with facts. It damages their wiring.

When a procedure isn't covered by an insurance policy, perhaps the buyer of that insurance should have spent more money on a better policy.
That's not a death panel. That's called not being fully insured.

The Democrats are always talking about insurance companies turning away the sick when they are old, but all my relatives are insured, some are old, and sickly, yet not on has been turned away from any hospital, or Doctors care. So where are these people who cannot get care from their insurance companies? How well insured are they? My relatives on Medicare have to answer more questions to get proper care then from their secondayry insurance plans. None have been sent home to die.

Yes, this is the Media Selected TOMMY's Death Panel.

The MAIN-PURPOSE of ObamaCare is for the US Government to get their hands on HealthCare Money and then to give it to the INTERNATIONAL BANKSTERS. By killing off Seniors they can do this.

Good for the Republicans for not participating in this Sham.

Incorrect on two fronts.

One, the Repubs NEVER pushed for Universal Health Care.

Second, If Obama WOULD do something beneficial for US Citizes, like protecting the Southern border, then Republicans would be happy to support him.

By Republicans, I don't mean the neo-con fascist wing represented by the Bushes, who are themselves, like Obama, underlings of the International Banksters.

If the Reps take a part and the Obamacare turns out to be the train wreck some of the Dems are saying it is going to be - you can bet the Reps would get the blame - the Dems are famous for the blame game - this time it would be the Reps did it instead of Bush.

Yes, what business is it of crooked, sleazy, greedy bureacrats to sentence people to an early grave so they, and their OVERLOARDS, can salt away more money.

This Obama scam is nothing more than "Gas Chambers" in slow motion.
