Sarah Palin crowed Friday over news that the Senate Finance Committee will leave end-of-life care out of its health care legislation.
"I join millions of Americans in expressing appreciation for the Senate Finance Committee's decision to remove the provision in the pending health care bill that authorizes end-of-life consultations (Section 1233 of HR 3200)," she wrote on her Facebook page. "It's gratifying that the voice of the people is getting through to Congress."
But the former governor of Alaska isn't satisfied. "That provision was not the only disturbing detail in this legislation; it was just one of the more obvious ones," she wrote. Palin went on to claim that health care reform will inevitably lead to single-payer, which will mean rationing. nationalized health care inevitably leads to rationing. There is simply no way to cover everyone and hold down the costs at the same time.
Of course, health care is already rationed. Even the head of Medicare under President Bush said: "Just because there isn't some government agency specifically telling you which treatments you can have based on cost-effectiveness, that doesn't mean you aren't getting some treatments."
