Obama Advisor Robert Reich Blasted for Promoting Death Panels

Washington, DC -- Former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin got pilloried for suggesting that the government-run health care system set up under the bills in Congress would lead to "death panels." But, now, a video has surfaced showing Obama economics advisor Robert Reich essentially admitting Palin was right.

If you wait for it to show up on TV, you’ll grow cobwebs. This story has shown up on World Net Daily and other sites.

The demonization of senior citizens, just in time for the boomers. I guess the lyrics “I hope I die before I get old” were not such a good idea after all eh Pete?

Silence grandpa, here’s your $250 check in lieu of Medicare. It’s like Homer Simpson trading his Union’s Dental Plan for a Keg of Beer.

I’ve seen it there...I just was hoping for wider dissemination. It’s certainly the kind of thing Glenn Beck would run.

I wonder who would be for healthcare reform knowing this was the “truth” as a prime advisor to Obama sees it.

I think Reich was being honest. But the Democrats know they can’t be about their real plans. When was the last time they were? It’s been a long, long time.

The Demonazis are now the KOP Party - that is the KILLING OLD PEOPLE Party.

If there are any old people who ware now or ever would again support the Demonazis - then they make about as much sense as a Chicken who is Loyal to Col Sanders.

Guess Rush was wrong in pronouncing his name as “Reishhhhhhh”.
Clearly the more appropriate pronunciation is “Rike”....as in “the 3rd Reich”.

Let’s see: we are about toe double the number of old people but cut 500 million out of Medicare. More people, less money for medical care. Yep, really hard math. Let’s put it this way: your government doesn’t want to suffer—long.

from wikipedia (sorry, quickest source I could find)

As with the child inmates, the adults had their cases assessed by a panel of "experts", working at the Tiergartenstraße offices. The experts were required to make their judgments solely on the basis of the reports, rather than on detailed medical histories, let alone examinations. Sometimes they dealt with hundreds of reports at a time. On each they marked a + (meaning death), a - (meaning life), or occasionally a ? meaning that they were unable to decide. Three "death" verdicts condemned the person concerned. As with the children, over time these processes became less rigorous, the range of conditions considered unsustainable grew broader, and zealous Nazis further down the chain of command increasingly made decisions on their own initiative.[39]

Aktion T4 for your additional reference

Hardly a peep about this in the MSM, but Sarah gets pilloried for mentioning it. Not surprising at all.

It’s time to take back the country.

It’s been a short time for Reich. How would he like it if adults under 4’10 were excluded form treatment.

Reich is one of the few on the Left who roots in reality his trains of thought.

Hey, wait a minute. Homer Simpson may be the smartest guy around. I would GLADY trade my entire OBAMACARE DeathScare package for a mere pony keg.
