Another invitation to deadly Sarah Palin
Huffington Post, earlier today:
Sarah Palin, whose claim to fame in the current health care debate is helping to spread the infamous "death panel" myth, has been invited to testify before the New York State Senate about how reform will impact the state's elderly.
New York State Senator Reverend Ruben Diaz, a conservative Democrat from the Bronx who is sympathetic to Palin's views, will be hosting a Senate Aging Committee hearing next week on "President Obama's proposed health care reform and the impact it will have on New York State senior citizens."
The former Alaska Governor's health care policy contribution is defined by a brief Facebook message she wrote in early August in which she warned that Democratic reform would create "death panels" tasked with determining who to euthanize, including her Down Syndrome child.
Palin has not yet accepted or declined the invitation to attend the September 8 hearing, according to Diaz's office.
Sarah Palin's contribution has been to serve as a mouthpiece for the healthcare insurance companies. Toxic people using a toxic celebrity...
She allows the use of Trig as a political prop, without any shame or thought for his future as a human being perfectly capable of working out her schemes when he's older.
I don't think Sarah Palin will show up. After all, she didn't write any of the healthcare reform notes on Facebook and wouldn't be able to present a credible argument.
Also... people don't get paid to testify before a commitee, do they?
