Paul Krugman: ‘Death panels and Sales Tax’ are how we fix things


So the esteemed Paul Krugman, ad nauseam defined as the “Nobel winning economist” lest we forget for one moment his proclaimed bona fides, just as our Dear Leader, had these fine remarks. A view from his elevated stance, on us poor wretched beings, whose lives may need to be shortened so that the Progressives can complete their agenda.  But this is not the first time he said it, but it was buried before. Now they are actually coming out and calling it exactly as Sarah Palin described it. The desensitization continues. Here we go with the latest:

Paul Krugman spoke at Sixth & I Historic Synagogue in Washington, D.C. last week. During the Q&A session following the lecture, an audience member asked him about the rising national debt. in a moment of brutal honesty, the esteemed Princeton professor revealed his long term prognosis. According to the professor,

Eventually we do have a problem. That the population is getting older, health care costs are rising…there is this question of how we’re going to pay for the programs. The year 2025, the year 2030, something is going to have to give…. …. We’re going to need more revenue…Surely it will require some sort of middle class taxes as well.. We won’t be able to pay for the kind of government the society will want without some increase in taxes… on the middle class, maybe a value added tax…And we’re also going to have to make decisions about health care, doc pay for health care that has no demonstrated medical benefits . So the snarky version…which I shouldn’t even say because it will get me in trouble is death panels and sales taxes is how we do this H/T:. breibart

 Earlier, April, 2011 NY Times Paul Krugman cheers inclusion of death panels in Obama’s Budget Plan

The main thing, though, is the strengthened role of and target for the Independent Payment Advisory Board. This can sound like hocus-pocus — but it’s not. You have people who actually know about health care and health costs setting priorities for spending, within a budget; in effect, you have an institutional setup which forces Medicare to find ways to say no.

Recall our earlier post: Kidney Patients being told to accept death and forgo dialysis

”It was meant to keep young and middle-aged people alive and productive. Instead, many of the patients who take advantage of the law are old and have other medical problems”. Take advantage?

RedState, April, 2011:

 I noticed that he took full ownership of death panels yesterday. Naturally, Obama did not call them death panels. He called them “an independent commission of doctors, nurses, medical experts and consumers.” But his description hits dead on with what his death panels will do.

According to Barack Obama yesterday, the death panels “will look at all the evidence and recommend the best ways to reduce unnecessary spending while protecting access to the services seniors need.”

Earlier, Reich portends the future Reich reveals the schocking truth about Obamacare:

This is a recording of Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, speaking at the University of California, Berkley on September 26th, 2007. He explains what national healthcare (like Obamacare) will mean for the country. Note the laughter of the students.

    Divide and conquer. That’s basic battle plan of the Socialist Democrat Party and all tyrannical regimes. They divide us by pitting us against each other.

    Galatians 5:13-15 Common English Bible (CEB)

    13 You were called to freedom, brothers and sisters; only don’t let this freedom be an opportunity to indulge your selfish impulses, but serve each other through love. 14 All the Law has been fulfilled in a single statement: Love your neighbor as yourself. 15 But if you bite and devour each other, be careful that you don’t get eaten up by each other!

    Consider how huge government spending has become (check out http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/). Much of that spending involves dastardly Ponzi Schemes. Consider Social Security and Medicare. By what do the old tax their own children for the “benefits”? Instead of letting the Federal Government spend it all “for them,” why didn’t the old just save their money?

    Yet these absurd schemes continue and multiply. Instead of throwing out a dangerously dishonest and tyrannical regime, too many of us fight to get “our share” of government spending. We know the system is unsustainable, but our own greed paralyzes us. Thus, we find ourselves forced to pay for other people’s abortions and subject to death panels. And that’s just the beginning.

    For some reason the old movie “Soylent Green” comes to mind mixed with Clockwork Orange. That’s the mental illness behind: “We won’t be able to pay for the kind of government the society will want without some increase in taxes …” What he really means is the kind of government “he wants” the Regime desires. Sickie fraud liar! Out and away with them all!

    Jim above is right on target. Welcome to George Bernard Shaw’s version of humane treatment. Or you could add Plato to that…who seriously recommended killing the infirm and mentally ill….the antithesis of Hippocrates’ compassion for our fellow humans. These are sick and tragic days we are watching.

      I almost included the Shaw clip, but thought it was enough. This is how it starts. Soon old folks will be the last target of Obama’s wrath, and everyone will go along. We are fast becoming a Godless anation.
