Has Obama Created A Dem Party Death Panel?
More affectionately known as the Catfood Commission. Jane Hamsher writes:
Nancy Altman and Eric Kingson, who had served as Obama’s Social Security advisors on both the campaign and his transition team, sounded the alarm in a piece that appeared in Harvard’s Nieman Watchdog entitled Has Obama created a Social Security ‘death panel’?:President Obama and the leadership in Congress have delegated enormous, unaccountable authority to 18 unrepresentative, inordinately wealthy individuals. The 18 individuals are meeting regularly, in secret, behind closed doors, until safely beyond this year’s mid-term election. If they reach agreement, their proposal will be voted on in December by a lame duck Congress, without the benefit of open hearings and deliberations in the pertinent committees and without the opportunity for open debate and amendment on the floors of the House and Senate. Despite the speed and lack of accountability, the legislation will affect, in substantial ways, every man, woman, and child in this nation.
(Emphasis supplied.) It is also the Dem Party Death Panel as it will certainly destroy the Democratic Party for the foreseeable future if the Congress votes for the Catfood Commission's recommendations to destroy Social Security.
Change you can believe in.
Speaking for me only
