PALIN Pushes OBAMA DEATH PANELS in Testimony to NY Legislature

She may not want to be the Governor of Alaska anymore — but that doesn’t mean she’s no longer interested in state politics — especially when it comes to New York.

Sarah Palin today provided testimony to the New York State Senate after being invited by conservative Ruben Diaz.  And Senator Diaz is not the only unlikely friend the former vice-presidential candidate has picked-up.  She quotes the left-leaning Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post for all the nice things he’s written about her.

 In a letter to Senator Diaz — outlining her testimony — Palin continues to hit hard on the idea that President Obama wants to kill your grandmother:

A great deal of attention was given to my use of the phrase “death panel” in discussing such rationing.[7] Despite repeated attempts by many in the media to dismiss this phrase as a “myth”, its accuracy has been vindicated. In the face of a nationwide public outcry, the Senate Finance Committee agreed to “drop end-of-life provisions from consideration entirely because of the way they could be misinterpreted and implemented incorrectly.”[8] Jim Towey, the former head of the White House Office of Faith-Based Initiatives, then called attention to what’s already occurring at the Department of Veteran’s Affairs, where “government bureaucrats are greasing the slippery slope that can start with cost containment but quickly become a systematic denial of care.”[9] Even Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson, a strong supporter of President Obama, agreed that “if the government says it has to control health care costs and then offers to pay doctors to give advice about hospice care, citizens are not delusional to conclude that the goal is to reduce end-of-life spending.”[10] And of course President Obama has not backed away from his support for the creation of an unelected, largely unaccountable Independent Medicare Advisory Council to help control Medicare costs; he had previously suggested that such a group should guide decisions regarding “that huge driver of cost . . . the chronically ill and those toward the end of their lives….”[11]

The full text of the letter is posted on Sarah Palin’s Facebook Page –which is how she primarily communicates with the media and the public.
