Palin cheers Senate Panel dropping EOL Consult

From the HILL here:
She first derided the voluntary end-of-life consultations in a House healthcare reform bill as “death panels” that could force euthanasia on the elderly. Palin also suggested the panel could decide to force euthanasia on her own Down Syndrome baby.

The White House, independent observers and even some Republicans have criticized Palin for the remarks, saying they are false. Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.), who has worked to expand Medicare coverage of end of life consultations, described the death panel suggestions as “nuts.”

Since then, Palin, who some think may run for president in 2012, has written twice more on Facebook about the issue.

“We must stop and think or we may find ourselves losing even more of our freedoms," she wrote Friday.
