Thanks to the intervention of Sarah Palin, this occurred:
Senators exclude end-of-life provision from bill

WASHINGTON – Key senators are excluding a provision on end-of-life care from health overhaul legislation after language in a House bill caused a furor.
Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa, top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, said in a statement Thursday that the provision had been dropped from consideration because it could be misinterpreted or implemented incorrectly.
A health care bill passed by three House committees allows Medicare to reimburse doctors for voluntary counseling sessions about end-of-life decisions. But critics have claimed the provision could lead to death panels and euthanasia for seniors.
The Senate Finance Committee is still working to complete a bill.
And with that, Sarah Palin has done more good for America than President Obama has done in his first 7 months in office (which wasn't so hard, since Obama has done nothing good and has done much harm). Of course they mocked Sarah Palin when she highlighted this concern. They always like to mock her. But thanks to her speaking out, they have had to change their troubling plans.
I know, we're not supposed to voice our opinions on health care reform in President Obama's America. In fact, if you do so at a townhall meeting for the people, a Democrat is likely to be on her cell phone as you are speaking:
Or, you'll wind up on some enemies list of the Obama administration.
But I notice that the number of threads where SoLowers post pics of Obama without his shirt while throwing themselves at him like Monica Lewinsky have died down.
And we can remember Worm, who assured the SoLowers that nothing could be learned from Obama's 20-year deep friendship with Jeremiah Wright, and his worship at Jeremiah Wright's disgustingly racist church. Nothing to see there, move along, said Worm.
But was it a surprise that the politician who was so in love with the racist Jeremiah Wright made a national issue out of his friend Henry Louis Gates' confrontation with a police officer? And was it a surprise that Obama leapt to side with the full-of-himself Harvard prof? Even though Gates acted like a total ass to the police officer who was just doing his job?
That "beer summit" might've been funny, except it took place in the midst of this ridiculous president doing extreme damage to America.
But at least Sarah Palin spoke out and they had to revise their plans with respect to the death panels in their health care legislation.
Lots of other Americans are starting to speak out.
We don't like what we see.
This Barack Obama.
They told us we were stupid if we didn't see how brilliant he was.
And, we'd be racists if we didn't vote for the most socialistic candidate in American history over the moderate-centrist war hero John McCain.
So now we find ourselves stuck with the worst prez ever, with the Democrats controlling all of Congress.
And pray that we put him and them in check very soon.
I have faith in the American people.
