Rationing, death panels, socialism, and deception. Itâ€™s all there. When Sarah Palin first raised the â€œdeath panelâ€ issue, she was referring to end-of-life counseling. But IPAB is the real death panel (as Palin herself later noted), a body of unelected bureaucrats with the power to cut off care through arbitrary rules based on one-size-fits-all cost calculations, just as in Britain. IPAB is the key to socialized, single-payer health-care, which is and has always been Obamaâ€™s ultimate goal. If Republicans remain unwilling to point out Obamaâ€™s unavowed socialist aims, they will be thrown onto the defensive by Obamaâ€™s class warfare rhetoric. That spells defeat in 2012.
