    Republican senator calls Palin’s ‘death panels’ ‘nuts’

    Republican Senator Johnny Isakson has come out and called Sara Palin's remarks about death panels as part of Obama's health care plan "nuts". The comment by Palin is, in itself, more than nuts.

    It is good to see a Republican Senator talking honestly here. Euthanasia? Not at all. Looney Tunes? Absolutely, and it shows just how far down the "Avenue of the Crazies" Palin has strayed. Palin could end up being a one woman wrecking crew - Of the Republican party, but I think the GOP will trim her from the tree rather quickly, so that doesn't happen.

    Good, because her claims are based on a Republican idea. HAHA. Here's some clarity from the guy who championed the end of life section:

    Ezra Klein - Is the Government Going to Euthanize your Grandmother? An Interview With Sen. Johnny Isakson.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    Did Palin ever make any euthanasia claims? or, is that something that's been added to the context?

    Yes she did, and a Republican Senator called her nuts (interview with Johnny Isakson).

    Here is Palin, in her own words on facebook. THIS is what the Republican Senator was referring to when he called Palin nuts.

    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.

    These are her exact words? Nowhere in there does she say, "euthanasia".

    In this statement, she's absolutely correct,

    there will be a nine person panel, with the surgeon general as the chair, that will dole out healthcare as they see fit. Have you read that part of the bill?

    Death panel huh? You're really missing the point of universal health care.
    But such facts and truths don't really matter to the fringe that "wants their country back" and hates anything presented by, dare I say it, a liberal. Oooohh no that evil word liberal

    By all means point me to the part of the bill that advocates a death panel.

    I was referring to the nine person panel that deals out the health care.

    Have you read the part where the government can force you to let them moniter how you're raising your kid?

    You're putting up multiple strawmen here. I want to see from you specifically about the death panel and how anyone is advocating for anything that is even remotely on the same grounds as a death panel as the ones you have alluded to in other posts of Stalin in Ukraine.
