Editor's note: Have you wondered what Sarah Palin is talking about when she refers to Obamacare's "death panels"? Following is an excerpt of a shocking investigative report published in the August edition of Whistleblower magazine...
President Obama has promised huge cuts in medical spending. In fact, he has warned that, if America fails to make such cuts, it will face financial Armageddon.
"Make no mistake: the cost of our health care is a threat to our economy ," Obama told the American Medical Association in Chicago June 15. "It is a ticking time bomb for the federal budget. And it is unsustainable for the United States of America. If we fail to act, one out of every five dollars we earn will be spent on health care within a decade. And if we fail to act, federal spending on Medicaid and Medicare will eventually grow larger than what our government spends on anything else today."
To avoid this catastrophe, America must make drastic cuts in health spending, says Obama. The size of his proposed cuts varies from speech to speech, but the figure cited most often by Obama's advisers is 30 percent per year up to $700 billion annually.
A 30-percent annual cut is going to take a big bite out of somebody's health care. The only question is whose.
The numbers make clear that most of these cuts will have to come at the expense of those who need health care the most the elderly, the disabled and the gravely ill.

Words are very important to Emanuel for example, the words of the Hippocratic Oath. He blames the Hippocratic Oath for much of what he considers wrong in American medicine."
This is only a little of what is in the article.
It is very serious stuff and bares much attention.
One can make jokes of it, but that is like sticking ones head into the sand.
All "they" need now is a sanitary way to happily send the old and infirm to "carousel". (Logan's Run)
Not like GROWING the economy could’nt hurt...except that would require Congress, K Street and the ATLA to give up a chunk of power....so they’d rather wage war against the American people...
Yep the American voter is finally seeing the democratic party for what they are, just a bunch of Nazi’s! Keep showing those true colors guys American voters ARE keeping score.
If not the Logan’s Run carousel, then how about Soylent Green’s “Exchange”?
Obama wants to save money by denying the elderly, and the very sick of all ages, healthcare.
"My message is all about "reason." We haf ways to deal with people who do not listen to reason."
