Remember when the media and the Obama administration would belittle the likes of Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, and other politicians on the right about the rediculous accusation of so called “DeathPanels” in ObamaCare? I am sure we will now see front page retractions, right?
The go-to economic darling of the media and the Obama Administration, Paul Krugman, admits that due to demographic and monetary realities, death-panels will become necessary. Don’t believe it? Below is video of Krugman saying it. Remember, Krugman came from the NY Times and is now an advisor to the Obama administration.
He also admit that “higher middle class taxes” are coming as well.
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 we 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.
