and blindness to unintended secondary results. ” – Joseph Sobran

Does "Mother Jones" hire the retarded?

18 Aug
Now that everyone recognizes that when the State allocates most medical resources it will be deciding who lives and dies, Mother Jones covers this while still trying to deny it.

Maybe they pay their interns and writers less than WalMart does, like The Nation?

In 2009, Sarah Palin claimed Obamacare would create “death panels,” or bands of bureaucrats who would decide whether old or disabled Americans were worthy of medical care. That notion turned out to be a figment of her imagination. But now, a growing cohort of Democratic lawmakers is cozying up to the idea, charging that the cost-cutting board that Obama’s health care law creates will indeed hurt people on Medicare, The Hill reports.
Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) and Reps. Ron Barber (D-Ariz.), Ann Kirkpatrick (D-Ariz.), Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) and Elizabeth Esty (D-Conn.) have all signed onto bills repealing the powers of the Independent Payment Advisory Board, a panel created by the Affordable Care Act that will make recommendations on how to reduce Medicare spending once Medicare cost growth reaches a certain level.
The lawmakers have said they oppose the board because it would limit care for Medicare patientseven though the health care law says that any cuts would have to affect doctor reimbursement rates or the prices for certain drugs, not patient care.
All five lawmakers are worried about losing their seats in 2014. Barber, Kirkpatrick, Sinema and Esty have also voted with Republicans to delay the law’s individual and employer mandates—the requirements that Americans purchase insurance and that employers of a certain size offer coverage, respectively.
The Democratic death panel fear-mongering follows an editorial that former Democratic National Committee chair Howard Dean wrote in the Wall Street Journal in July. He called for a repeal of the cost-cutting board because, he wrote, it would have the effect of rationing care by making it hard for doctors to make money from Medicare. Dean has worked as an adviser to a major DC lobbying firm that does work on behalf of the healthcare industry, which would see profits cut if the board goes into effect.
Major healthcare industry players like the American Hospital Association, the American Medical Association, and the pharmaceutical lobby have supported repeal of the board, arguing the panel would cut providers’ pay arbitrarily.
Palin predicted folks would come around on death panels. “Though I was called a liar for calling it like it is, many of these accusers finally saw that ObamaCare did in fact create a panel of faceless bureaucrats who have the power to make life and death decisions about healthcare funding,” she wrote on Facebook in 2012.
But Republican lawmakers don’t seems to appreciate the Dems’ aisle-crossing. The National Republican Congressional Committee slammed the Democrats for “desperately trying to jump off the ObamaCare train.”

‘OTR’ Sneak Peek – Palin: ‘I Was Forbidden From Telling the Truth About Obama in 2008’

BY FOX NEWS INSIDER //JUL 26 2013 // 6:03PM

Tonight at 10p/1a ETGreta Van Susteren explores why the president is calling the D.C. scandals “phony.” In this sneak peek clip of the special, Greta talks to Sarah Palin who exposes that in her 2008 vice presidential run, she was forbidden from talking about Obama’s relationships with both Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers, as well as his job experience.
“I was not allowed to talk about things like that because those ‘elitists,’ those who are the brainiacs in the GOP machine, running John McCain’s campaign at the time said that the media would eat us alive if we brought up these things.”
“What that got us, this kind of complacency and self-censoring of a campaign where we weren’t allowed to tell the truth about who this candidate was – Barack Obama – what it got us was a list of these scandals,” Palin charged.

1 Jul

Toying with the idea of starting a new political party? You betcha.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin entertained building a “Freedom Party” while answering Twitter questions on Fox News Saturday.
One user asked, “Would you & Mark Levin be willing to build a ‘Freedom Party’ if GOP continues to ignore conservatives?”
“I love the name of that party — the ‘Freedom Party,'” Palin replied. “And if the GOP continues to back away from the planks in our platform, from the principles that built this party of Lincoln and Reagan, then yeah.”
Palin thinks that more and more libertarian-leaning conservatives might decide that they do not need the GOP at all.


Palin thinks that more and more libertarian-leaning conservatives might decide that they do not need the GOP at all.

The 2008 Republican nominee for vice president said that many conservatives with “that libertarian streak” feel ignored by the GOP. If this presumed neglect continues, Palin said, creating a new home for conservatives might not be such a bad idea.
Palin expects more and more people who want government off their backs to ask, “You know, what’s wrong with being independent?”
“I think there will be a lot of us who start saying, ‘GOP, if you abandon us, we have nowhere else to go except to become more independent and not enlisted in a one or the other private majority parties that rule in our nation, either a Democrat or a Republican.”
She said that these organizations are private and “no one forces us to be enlisted in either party.”
