Betty on the News: Sarah Palin Renews Death Panel Argument
As the healthcare bill faces a tough battle in the Senate, Sarah Palin won’t let talk of “death panels” die.

As healthcare reform faces a tough battle in the Senate, with independent Sen. Joe Lieberman already voicing his disapproval and Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham declaring it “dead on arrival,” Sarah Palin has taken to the Internet to renew the “death panel” rant that she so famously made popular.
In an essay on her official Facebook page, Palin posted the following:
“We had been told there were no ‘death panels’ in the bill. But look closely at the provision mandating bureaucratic panels that will be calling the shots regarding who will receive government health care.”
Palin also took Nancy Pelosi to task; however, according to reports, failed to mention what it is exactly her supporters should look for in the healthcare bill. (Newser)
