Paul Krugman: Death Panels Will Fix Debt Crisis

Paul Krugman

Paul Krugman is at it again. As we noted back in April, and as the left has claimed time and again is an outright lie, death panels are real and the “radical progressive left” wants to implement them. Krugman has said so himself–numerous times.

Krugman, a guest on ABC’s “This Week With Christiane Amanpour”, made the following comment:

“Some years down the pike, we’re going to get the real solution, which is going to be a combination of death panels and sales taxes. It’s going to be that we’re actually going to take Medicare under control, and we’re going to have to get some additional revenue, probably from a VAT. But it’s not going to happen now.”

This is not the first time that Krugman has argued for Death Panels to keep ObamaCare costs under control. As we noted in April, Krugman made the following remarks:

So, just to recap the arguments from the Obama wing:  according to the “radical left” Death Panels are just a bogeyman created by the “radical right.” After all, Media Matters, the “radical progressive left-wing” operation run by George Soros, still claims Death Panels are a myth. Clearly, Soros and his ruffian gang of brainless followers aren’t paying close attention to Paul Krugman (which is hard to believe) when he states that such panels should be considered. But they probably won’t issue a press release or blog post to say that Krugman isn’t speaking progressive commonsense.

Give me a break. Death Panels are real. And if the progressives have their way, they will have these panels implemented.
