Palin Power

Sarah Palin had a few unkind words to say about Obama's Health Care Package.

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.
So what has been the response of our Dear Leader? He is bending to Palin Power.
For now, Obama seems on the defensive. He spent valuable time this month knocking down claims that Democratic plans could lead to euthanasia of the elderly.
So I'm wondering. How could a has been washed up politician from a politically insignificant state put President ∅ on the defensive?

And it is not just El Presidente. She has the Congress spooked as well.
Palin can also put another notch on her belt when it comes to influencing health care "reform" -- the Senate will drop language "encouraging" doctors to initiate conversations with patients about hospice and palliative end-of-life care from its bill, The Boston Globe reports...
How about that! No wonder Palin has been so viciously attacked before she even did anything. The Democrats (and some Republicans) recognized a power beyond their control. I think it will only get worse - for them.

Here is Palin's Facebook page if you want to keep up.

I'm sure you towncrawlers who so vehemently oppose "socialism" are staying true to yourselves by opting out of such socialist programs as Medicare, Social Security, Police and Fire protection, etc. Such terrible socialism in action, how can even live with yourselves in this blatantly socialistic nation!!

Medicare and Social Security are both in bad shape, I'm dubious that they'll last until I'm 65 (that's about another five years). I've never on counted either of them in my financial planning.

And we'll see how much longer government supplied security and fire protection last in California.

Don't rely on government to do for you, 99%. It's a shaky reed.
