Palin claimed that Democrats are trying to jump off the ‘Obama train wreck,’ and said, “Of course, there are death panels in there, but the important thing to remember is that is just one aspect of this atrocious, unaffodrable, cumbersome, burdensome, evil policy of Obama’s and that is Obamacare…Well, it’s in black and white in the law in that there will be rationing of healthcare. They couldn’t go forever in not acknowledging that or they would look like complete buffoons, and they would be deemed incompetent having not read the law to understand that death panels are a part this atrocity.”
The idea that healthcare will be rationed is based on the lie that Obamacare is a government takeover of healthcare. Republicans like Palin and some well paid Democrats like Howard Dean are back to fearmongering about the IPAB board, but here is what the board really does, “The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act creates the 15-member Independent Payment Advisory Board to suggest ways to limit Medicare’s spending growth. It can be overruled by Congress. Its appointments will be done in public. It will not make decisions on individual cases. The board can reduce how much the government pays health care providers for services, reduce payments to hospitals with very high rates of readmissions or recommend innovations that cut wasteful spending. It may not raise premiums for Medicare beneficiaries or increase deductibles, co-insurance or co-payments. The IPAB also cannot change who is eligible for Medicare, restrict benefits or make recommendations that would raise revenue.”
