Palin was right. ObamaCare’s “Death Panels” Begin.

During the 2009-2010 congressional health care reform debate about the president’s signature law, ObamaCare  --  passed without a single Republican Senator or a single Republican Representative voting for it  --  Sarah Palin issued a “statement on the current health care debate” which warned about ObamaCare’s “death panels.”

Palin wrote, on August 7, 2009, seven months before Obama’s socialized medicine scheme was signed into law:  “The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s ‘death panel”’ so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their “’level of productivity in society,’ whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.”

Senator Ted Cruz: Future Majority Leader?

Canadian-born Ted Cruz, freshman Republican senator from Texas, can never be president of the United States.  On the other hand, he can be Senate Majority Leader. 

Senator Cruz seems to be taking the opposite path to Republican congressional leadership than has his fellow Hispanic, fellow Reaganite, and fellow Tea Party hero, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL.  The latter senator sat on the back benches in the Senate chamber for most of his first two years in the Senate beginning on January 2011 until stepping into the spotlight.  And what a spotlight that has been, including giving the response last week to the president’s state of the union speech.

Capitol Hill Update: President Obama is Still Defying the Will of the American People

 

After President Obama's speech tonight, it is still apparent that he is defying the will of the American people who do not want a government option included in health care reform or the numerous government mandates he listed in his speech.  The including of a so-called "trigger" - blackmailing health care insurance companies, as some Democrats propose - basically guarantees a government-run health care system in America. 

The fact that American taxpayers will eventually pay for elective abortions is abominable and is reason enough to vote against the health care bill being proposed by the Democrats.
