Repub senator calls Sarah Failin’s ‘Death Panel’ statement “nuts”

Is promptly put on Lim-bots’ Enemies List.

Johnny Isakson, Georgia conservative and one of the senators who worked on end-of-life provisions, discusses the health care bill brouhaha with the WaComPo:

”I just had a phone call where someone said Sarah Palin's web site had talked about the House bill having death panels on it where people would be euthanized. How someone could take an end of life directive or a living will as that is nuts. You're putting the authority in the individual rather than the government. I don't know how that got so mixed up.

“This was thoroughly debated in the Senate committee. It's voluntary. Every state in America has an end of life directive or durable power of attorney provision. For the peace of mind of your children and your spouse as well as the comfort of knowing the government won't make these decisions, it's a very popular thing. Just not everybody's aware of it.”

Every state, huh? I suppose that includes Alaska? I didn't check. If so, was Sarah Palin's administration "downright evil," too? What kind of "death panel" did she oversee?

What a nutjob she is.
It DOES include Alaska. Why does Sarah Palin hate America?
