    As governor of Alaska Palin was FOR the end of life couseling that she is now calling DEATH PANELS.
    She SUPPORTED it.
    Why doesn´t someone just call her on that?

    She plays people like a fiddle….she is a liar.Report

    Think Progress, the Democratic policy and media-watch group, has come up with an amazing discovery. Sarah Palin was in favor of voluntary, private counseling so that people could put their end-of-life affairs in order, before she was against government bureaucrats getting involved in a mandatory process as part of health care restructuring cost savings efforts.

    Nothing inconsistent about Palin’s position. It’s private versus public. It’s one thing for individuals to plan their own lives on their own, but quite different when government enforces mandates and gets involved in such decisions as part of an effort to cut health care costs. Remember, keep your laws off my body, or something like that?

    I thought that the hunted-and-killed Federal provision would merely provide funding for end-of-life counseling, but not mandate that everyone do it.

    Prolly there would end up being some kind of normalizing regulations around the encounter, if it ever becomes part of Federal health reform, which the Right Wing would call horrible, horrible gov’t intrusion.
