Palin says Obama's health care plan is 'evil'

By MARK THIESSEN, Associated Press Writer Mark Thiessen, Associated Press Writer – 6 mins ago

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin called President Barack Obama's health plan "downright evil" Friday in her first online comments since leaving office, saying in a Facebook posting that he would create a "death panel" that would deny care to the neediest Americans.

"Who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course," the former vice Republican presidential candidate wrote on her Facebook page, which has nearly 700,000 supporters.

"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," Palin wrote.

An e-mail sent to Palin's spokeswoman to confirm authorship was not immediately returned Friday.

Obama, a Democrat, campaigned on a promise of offering affordable health care to all Americans. He has proposed a system that would include government and private insurers.

Republicans say that private insurers would be unable to compete, leaving the country with only a government-run health program. They warn that could leave Americans with little control over their health care.

Republican criticism has included claims that the reform plans will lead to rationing, or the government determining which medical procedures a patient can have. However, millions of Americans already face rationing, as insurance companies rule on procedures they will cover.

Denying coverage for certain procedures might increase under proposals to have a government-appointed agency identify medicines and procedures best suited for various conditions.

In the posting, Palin encouraged her supporters to be engaged in the debate. "Nationalizing our health care system is a point of no return for government interference in the lives of its citizens. If we go down this path, there will be no turning back," Palin wrote.

"Let's stop and think and make our voices heard before it's too late," the posting said.

Palin resigned as Alaska governor on July 26 with nearly 18 months left in her term. She cited not only the numerous ethics complaints that had been filed against her also her wish not to be a lame duck after the first-term governor decided not to seek re-election next year.

Palin, popular with conservatives in the Republican party, has said she wants to build a right-of-center coalition, and there is speculation she will seek the presidency in 2012. In the two weeks since she resigned, Palin has made only one public appearance, giving a Second Amendment rights speech last Saturday before a gun owners group in Anchorage.

Palin also has been largely silent before Friday's post. She was a voracious user of the social networking site Twitter, and promised to keep her supporters updated with a new private account after she left office. But that hasn't happened, leaving some of her fans begging for updates in the past two weeks.

  • WHAT A BULLSHIT POLL!!!!

    Basically one choice if you love her but several if you hate her. This ensures a misleading end result of the poll.

    • WTF are you talking about. How liberal function? NO, more like this is how repulicans function. The choices given will skew the real overall opinion on Palin. A couple of choices if you like her and several if you don't. That dilutes the opinion of those that hate her and concentrates the opinion of those that love her. It is blatantly obvious but I'm sure it is too much for your little republican mind to grasp.

  • The woman is a private citizen, who cares what she has said.

    Now she has been forced to leave political office by the cost of defending herself against vexatious litigation, Palin will be much higher profile then before.

    She will be on the lecture circuit and definitely be loaded for bear. If the Democrats imagined she was a threat before, well now she has become that reality.

    Whatever the Democrats' opinion of her, she does and will draw large crowds and will raise substantial funds in the p More..

    • well im not a palin fan, and am only supporting obama in a 'hope for the best of a second choice' situation,

      but statistics and polls are just a tool to get people to agree with you, this guy's backfired because now it looks like the majority of people are defending her, but when you add up the plus minus category the results are quite different, I think his plan backfired, oh well.

    • yeah she wasnt the best choice, but all the blame that gets launched at her is a little much, I always felt any blame should have gone towards whoever made the decision to tap her in the first place, but either way its all in the past, the election has been over for a grip of time now and this is just malicious and dead horse beating. its gone from a story of politics to an 'anna nicole' style media love/hate fixation. Its the TMZ route of being political. And the angst and vitriol on both side More..

  • BTW, all this blather about the GOP "derailing" anything is a distraction from the fact that Democrats have super-majorities in both Houses of Congress.

    The barrier to passage of the Obama/Reid/Pelosi form of "reform" is OTHER DEMOCRATS, period.
