Demand that Obama Not Kill Sarah Palin’s Family

with 3 comments

Since leaving Public Office, Sarah Palin has taken a major step in moving from Twitter to Facebook for her social networking.    The limited word count of Twitter made it very difficult for Sarah to express the complex thoughts in her head.   On Friday, Sarah Palin posted the following comment on her Facebook page, “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.”

I can only say “Bravo” Sarah.  We Republicans will not stand for the euthanizing of unproductive members of society because we know that there but for the grace of God goes us.   I am sure that if this administration was able to put into law that those who are unproductive will die, Republicans would be high on the list.   This will not be tolerated.   I demand the President Obama publicly state that he will not kill Sarah Palin’s family.

As I watched the Sunday morning talk shows, I was apalled to see the reaction to Palin’s comments.  People called it “fear mongering” and sait it was proof that she couldn’t participate in a serious policy decision.   This is no nightmare scenario.   Don’t forget Sarah Palin was just Governor of Alaska and if anybody knows about how poor government run health care can kill people, it’s the person who was ultimately responsible for the programs designed to help the elderly and disabled.

According to the Anchorage Daily News, the federal government has found “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” and has blocked the state from signing up new people to these programs until major changes are made.  In a two and a half year period, 227 adults 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 services are paid for by medicaid, but most of the work is performed by private contractors.  There are a number of lawsuits being filed against the state for their negligence.

Nobody knows more about the failings of government run health care than somebody who as governor has just miserably failed at providing government run health care.  Sarah Palin’s failure to adequate protect the life of the seniors of her state shows just how vulnerable her parents truly are.   Raising a child with special needs takes a lot of patience.  It is not an easy job for parents to take care of a child who doesn’t process things as quickly as the rest of us.  However, Sarah Palin’s parents did so and they should be respected for this.   Her baby also needs protection and in the name of human decency I call on President Obama to publicly state that he categorically will not kill Sarah Palin’s family.

  2. She will never have to worry about paying for any Health Care she or her family will ever need. So what’s the point? If she was so worried about her state’s Health System perhaps she should have stuck around instead of quitting under the pressure of all the law suits.
