Palin Revives 'Death Panel' Claim

Second time’s a charm? Sarah Palin revives her death panel claim in Wednesday’s Wall Street Journal. “Is it any wonder that many of the sick and elderly are concerned that the Democrats’ proposals will ultimately lead to rationing of their health care by—dare I say it—death panels?” she writes. Of course, the reason the elderly are concerned about “death panels” is not because of anything the Democrats have said, but because Republicans like Palin decided invented them as a scare tactic last month. Palin goes on to advocate “market-oriented, patient-centered, and result-driven” health-care solutions.
