Sarah Palin on Death Panel and the stimulus bill. A Limerick.

Obama’s health care speech Jun 20 10:

First, I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits — either now or in the future. (Applause.) I will not sign it if it adds one dime to the deficit, now or in the future, period. And to prove that I’m serious, there will be a provision in this plan that requires us to come forward with more spending cuts if the savings we promised don’t materialize.

 H.R. 1 (more commonly known as the Recovery and Reinvestment Act, even more commonly known as the Stimulus Bill) allocated $1.1 billion (a pretty good slush fund, we must be a rich country) to fund the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research.

As Sarah was commenting on Fox News channel

On health care bill mentioned the two words:  “Death Panel”.

But boy, was she wrong,

I’ll confirm with a song:

The stimulus bill authorized the death panel.

And because of that the term Death Panel was named lie of the year, not because it was untrue, but it was not part of the health care bill, but did already exist as part of the stimulus bill.

o.k. I know the first time death panel appeared was on Sarah’s Facebook. But this rhymes.
