Well, duh. We all knew that. At least, those of us who were paying attention, as opposed to those who were drinking CØØL-AID.
Now it seems that prominent Democrat (former Vermont Governor, DNC Chairman) Howard Dean has published an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal admitting Palin was right to oppose the Obamacare “Independent Payment Advisory Board.” The IPAB is exactly what Palin said.
IPAB: A panel of unelected, political appointees in D.C. with the power to decide who in America gets what health care treatment.
Dean writes, “The IPAB is essentially a health-care rationing body. By setting doctor reimbursement rates for Medicare and determining which procedures and drugs will be covered and at what price, the IPAB will be able to stop certain treatments its members do not favor by simply setting rates to levels where no doctor or hospital will perform them.
There does have to be control of costs in our health-care system. However, rate setting — the essential mechanism of the IPAB — has a 40-year track record of failure. What ends up happening in these schemes (which many states including my home state of Vermont have implemented with virtually no long-term effect on costs) is that patients and physicians get aggravated because bureaucrats in either the private or public sector are making medical decisions without knowing the patients.”
The Right is delighted to see a prominent Dem like Dean making our case for us. Not that the Left cares. Obamacare never was about lowering health care costs or any of the other rainbow and unicorns crap they claimed it was about. It was, is and will continue to be about
- increasing the power and wealth of elite Democrat politicians,
- decreasing American freedoms with a top down control system, and
- killing all those who are deemed unfit or inconvenient by those in power.
In short, it’s about destroying the FAITH, HOPE and CHARITY that have been the hallmarks of our Christian Constitutional Republic from its founding and replacing them with the HATE, DESPAIR and SELFISHNESS that are the hallmarks of the Atheistic Socialist Dictatorship the Left wants running America.
