It's not a death panel but we're getting rid of it again.

Remem­ber how the left and the media insisted that Sarah Palin was “lying” about death pan­els but sud­denly decided to drop them?

Just 5 days ago Rep Blumenauer’s (D-​Shhhh) memo leaked that they were back in but we don’t want to talk about it.

Well now they are out again:

The Obama admin­is­tra­tion, revers­ing course, will revise a Medicare reg­u­la­tion to delete ref­er­ences to end-​of-​life plan­ning as part of the annual phys­i­cal exam­i­na­tions cov­ered under the new health care law, admin­is­tra­tion offi­cials said Tuesday.

The move is an abrupt shift, com­ing just days after the new pol­icy took effect on Jan. 1.

The arti­cle in the Times men­tions Palin specifically:

Sarah Palin, the 2008 Repub­li­can vice-​presidential can­di­date, said in the sum­mer of 2009 that “Obama’s death panel” would decide who was wor­thy of health care. Rep­re­sen­ta­tive John A. Boehner of Ohio, the House Repub­li­can leader who is to become speaker on Wednes­day, said the pro­vi­sion could be a step “down a treach­er­ous path toward government-​encouraged euthanasia.”

…but some­how omits Rep Blumenauer’s (D-​Shhhh) memo and the fall­out thereof. The Hill man­ages to bring it up while still call­ing it a “lie”.

But you can’t blame the times, with 43 can­di­dates she endorsed being sworn in today per­haps Palin and Boehner are the story today.

Remember how the left and the media insisted that Sarah Palin was “lying” about death panels but suddenly decided to drop them?

Just 5 days ago Rep Blumenauer’s (D-Shhhh) memo leaked that they were back in but we don’t want to talk about it.

Well now they are out again:

The Obama administration, reversing course, will revise a Medicare regulation to delete references to end-of-life planning as part of the annual physical examinations covered under the new health care law, administration officials said Tuesday.

The move is an abrupt shift, coming just days after the new policy took effect on Jan. 1.

The article in the Times mentions Palin specifically:

Sarah Palin, the 2008 Republican vice-presidential candidate, said in the summer of 2009 that “Obama’s death panel” would decide who was worthy of health care. Representative John A. Boehner of Ohio, the House Republican leader who is to become speaker on Wednesday, said the provision could be a step “down a treacherous path toward government-encouraged euthanasia.”

…but somehow omits Rep Blumenauer’s (D-Shhhh) memo and the fallout thereof. The Hill manages to bring it up while still calling it a “lie”.

But you can’t blame the times, with 43 candidates she endorsed being sworn in today perhaps Palin and Boehner are the story today.
