Sarah Palin Was Right: Death Panels Take Grim Toll In Cuomo's New York
Sarah Palin was right. She warned us about death panels over a decade ago. Sadly, they mocked her for it. Sadly, they're here.
In 2009, Palin gave her honest assessment of life under Obama-Care.
The former Alaska governor concluded that the Affordable Care Act would
give bureaucrats the authority to decide who stays and who goes. The
sick and the elderly would be at the mercy of a panel of government
strangers. Such panel members would determine whether people live or
pundits, and press members said she was lying. They called her names.
They told us this was all a wild right-wing conspiracy. Sadly though, Palin was right.
Back in '09, Plain wrote on social media:
who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly,
and the disabled, of course. The America I know and love is not one in
which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in
front of Obama’s 'death
panel' so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of
their ‘level of productivity in society,’ whether they are worthy of
health care. Such a system is downright evil.”

Palin was indeed right. In 2012, she doubled down on her original post.
told the world she had no regrets about her first take on death panels,
'not even a smidgen'. She brilliantly compared and contrasted original
quotes from naysayers about her initial remarks, with new evidence on
wrongful deaths tied to the big VA scandal.
the years to follow, Palin continued to touch on this subject, exposing
Democrats for their lust for a single-payer system, government
overreach, and statism. She continued to be right.

According to President Trump, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo
had an opportunity to order 16,000 ventilators in 2015 at a reduced
rate but opted for death panels and lotteries instead. Trump addressed
this during a town hall at the White House back in March of this year.
Whether you want to believe Palin and Trump or not, Cuomo's recent actions speak for themselves.

failed to announce the total number of nursing home deaths in New
has, however, written a braggadocio book, while making all the TV and
radio rounds with celebrities who sing his praises. But when it comes to
the seniors who real Empire State families have lost, Cuomo is quiet.
Cuomo, more than 6,400 patients who were COVID- positive were sent from
hospitals to nursing homes. This was Cuomo's form of a death panel.
Government, not patients, not families, choosing what happens to sick
While good New Yorkers are
grieving the loss of loved ones, Cuomo
is smiling all the way to the bank. He is set for a salary hike next
year that will make him the highest-paid governor in the country. He is
shamelessly pushing his book, that one former staffer called
'self-congratulatory'. He even inexplicably took home an Emmy. It's "in
recognition of his leadership during the Covid-19 pandemic and his
masterful use of television to inform and calm people around the world,"
according to the International Academy Of Television Arts &
Sciences. That same ex-aide, Alexis Grenell, called this development
'depressing'. But, while Palin, Trump, and Grenell may be on to the real
Cuomo, the media continue to prop him up like some sort of king.
are facts. Cuomo alone is to blame for refusing to shut down New York
and forcing seniors who tested positive for Corona-virus back into
nursing homes. Cuomo did not follow CMS or CDC guidelines leading to the
demise of so many.
Last week, a group of New Yorkers fought back, holding a huge anti-Cuomo rally. Jennifer Harrison, a MAGA
Mama Grizzlies For Free & Fair Elections board member, was one of
the organizers. Since the successful Freedom Rally, Harrison and several
others have been mocked by Cuomo's right-hand man via social media.
Harrison and colleagues grieve for the '11,000 people killed in nursing
homes', Cuomo's senior advisor Rich 'Dick' Azzopardi
called the group Voices For Seniors a 'death cult'. He goes on to
criticize the families who have lost loved ones and are on a quest for
answers, justice, and change, calling them 'unimpressive'. Wow.
iconic 'I Love New York' logo features a big heart. Cuomo's people seem
to have very little love or heart when it comes to those in pain.
Cuomo failed. He continues to fail. His actions have led to death. Sarah Palin was right.
doesn't seem to show much emotion when it comes to the loss of
thousands of New York seniors, one sure way to fire him up is by
referring to his brother, CNN's Chris Cuomo, as 'Fredo'. Governor Cuomo
has been known to lash out when Chris is compared to that weak-willed
character from The Godfather movies. Telling though, isn't it? Andrew Cuomo
gets emotional about fictional films in which there are almost 70 fake
deaths, yet remains defiant about the thousands of real people who
actually died in New York nursing homes under his watch. That is as
unimpressive as it gets.
