Sarah Palin's deadly healthcare
$arah Palin appears to have abandoned Twitter in favour of Facebook, where she can publish ghostwritten pieces in whole sentences and paragraphs with puctuation and proper syntax. One thing hasn't changed: her complete lack of respect for the president.
"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” ..."
From ADN on July 14:
State programs intended to help disabled and elderly Alaskans with daily life -- taking a bath, eating dinner, getting to the bathroom -- are so poorly managed, the state cannot assure the health and well-being of the people they are supposed to serve, a new federal review found.
A particularly alarming finding concerns deaths of adults in the programs. In one 2 1/2 year stretch, 227 adults already getting services died while waiting for a nurse to reassess their needs. Another 27 died waiting for their initial assessment, to see if they qualified for help.
The families of the 254 elderly and disabled people who stood in front of Sarah Palin's death panel and didn't stand a chance would have something to say about her statement on healthcare reform. The 2 1/2 year stretch coincide with the length of time she "served" as governor.
Considering that Sarah Palin stated to Katie Couric that healthcare reform was necessary to shore up the economy, her understanding of this subject is non-existent.
When Sarah Palin speaks in her own words she's funny. When she publishes other people's words as her own, she's sinister.
Funny or sinister, she's dangerous. The death toll stands at 254.
