Flashback: then-Alaska Governor Failin declared April 16, 2008 as
Death Panel Healthcare Decisions Day to "raise public awareness of the need to plan ahead for end of life care." No, really:
WHEREAS, Healthcare Decisions Day is designed to raise public awareness of the need to plan ahead for healthcare decisions, related to end of life care and medical decision-making whenever patients are unable to speak for themselves and to encourage the specific use of advance directives to communicate these important healthcare decisions. …So how about, in honor of the American soldier, you stop making shit up.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Sarah Palin, Governor of the state of Alaska, do hereby proclaim April 16, 2008, as: Healthcare Decisions Day in Alaska, and I call this observance to the attention of all our citizens.
Dated: April 16, 2008
Bonus: you know who else supported death panels?
