Palin’s Hypocrisy on “Death Panels”

August 17, 2009

Apparently, it’s a death panel when the federal government pays for it, but not scary when the Governor of Alaska encourages people to do it on their own dime.  Maureen Dowd, who is as often unbearably obnoxious as she is right, points this out in her Sunday op-ed:

Never mind that Palin herself had endorsed some of the same end-of-life counseling she now depicts as putting Grandma down.

As the Democratic National Committee pointed out, Palin put out a 2008 proclamation for Healthcare Decisions Day “to raise public awareness of the need to plan ahead for healthcare decisions, related to end of life care … and to encourage the specific use of advance directives to communicate these important healthcare decisions.”
