Palin Vindicated: GOP Sends IPAB to the Death Panel

David Catron, The American Spectator

IPAB would have been the health care rationing board that dare not speak its name. Fortunately for seniors, congressional Republicans and President Trump didn’t need to have it named for them by the Democratic Party or its publicists at the Post and other alleged news outlets. They know IPAB was an acronym for Death Panel, and they deep-sixed it. Now, its stygian shadow no longer looms over the elderly.

The bill, sponsored by Tennessee Republican Phil Roe and California Democrat Raul Ruiz, both of whom are physicians, would repeal the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), the unelected rationing board that Sarah Palin famously dubbed the “death panel.” And, unlike the Obamacare bailouts cobbled together by Senator Alexander and his accomplices, there is genuine bipartisan support for this legislation.
