    ANCHORAGE, Alaska (Aug. 7) -- Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin called President Barack Obama's health plan "downright evil" Friday in her first online comments since leaving office, saying in a Facebook posting that he would create a "death panel" that would deny care to the neediest Americans.
    "The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama's 'death panel' so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their 'level of productivity in society,' whether they are worthy of health care," the former Republican vice presidential candidate wrote.
    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin didn't stay quiet for long. Less than two weeks after her resignation from office, she's blasting President Barack Obama's health plan on her Facebook page, calling it evil and saying a "death panel" would decide personal health care decisions for some Americans. Here, Palin delivers her resignation speech in Fairbanks, Alaska, on July 26.

    "Such a system is downright evil," Palin wrote on her page, which has nearly 700,000 supporters. She encouraged her supporters to be engaged in the debate.
    The claim that the Democratic health care bills would encourage euthanasia has been circulating on the Internet for weeks and has been echoed by some Republican leaders. Democrats from Obama on down have dismissed it as a distortion. The nonpartisan group FactCheck.org, a project of the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania says the claim is false.
    The allegation appears to be based on a provision of the House bill that would require Medicare to pay for end-of-life counseling sessions, on a voluntary basis, for beneficiaries who want the service. Medicare already covers hospice care. And legislation passed by Congress in 1990 requires that patients be asked if they have a living will.
    Obama addressed the controversy during a July 28 AARP-sponsored town hall.
    "Nobody is going to be forcing you to make a set of decisions on end-of-life care based on some bureaucratic law in Washington," he said.
    An e-mail sent to Palin's spokeswoman to confirm authorship of the Facebook posting was not immediately returned Friday. There was no immediate reply to phone messages left late Friday with the White House and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office seeking
    Few people outside of Alaska knew anything about Sarah Palin until Republican presidential candidate John McCain picked the first-term governor to be his running mate. He introduced her to the nation on Aug. 29, 2008, just days before the Republican National Convention.

He introduced her to the nation on Aug. 29, 2008, just days before the Republican National Convention. Republican criticism has also included claims that the reform plans will lead to rationing, or the government determining which medical procedures a patient can have.
    However, millions of Americans already face rationing, as insurance companies rule on procedures they will cover. Denying coverage for certain procedures might increase under proposals to have a government-appointed agency identify medicines and procedures best suited for various conditions.
    Palin resigned as Alaska governor on July 26 with nearly 18 months left in her term. She cited not only the numerous ethics complaints that had been filed against her also her wish not to be a lame duck after the first-term governor decided not to seek re-election next year.
    Palin, popular with conservatives in the Republican party, has said she wants to build a right-of-center coalition, and there is speculation she will seek the presidency in 2012. In the two weeks since she resigned, Palin has made only one public appearance, giving a Second Amendment rights speech last Saturday before a gun owners group in Anchorage.
    Palin or her aides post notes on her Facebook account about once or twice a week, usually to set out policy statements, issue news releases or refute rumors circulating on the Internet.
    Palin also has been largely silent before Friday's Facebook post. She was a voracious user of the social networking site Twitter, and promised to keep her supporters updated with a new private account after she left office. But that hasn't happened, leaving some of her fans begging for updates in the past two weeks.

    So, Obam says euthanasia is not in the health bill, a document he hasn't read, just because he says it we are to believe him and any of his goons. Another dirty little secret, your bank account will be attached by the Washington goons to make sure you pay up and I thought Government Health Care was free. Go get them Sarah.

    This lady is so amusing. I think she should quit talking out cause she really brings embarrassment to her self. If the republicans want to have a chance in 2012 they will do away with palin cause she makes them look bad and uneducated. They need to stick with Mitt Romney and other intelligent people.

    Look whose talking about making themselves look bad and uneducated...

    Not Surprising, coming from somebody such as yourself after your recent endorsement of committed gun banner Harold Ford Jr.... and now "F" Rated Slick Willard Mitt Romney over somebody with a perfect record supporting the Second Amendment ("A" Rated Governor Sarah Palin) ...

    You might ask yourself, who are the Democrats most afraid of in 2012?
    logic would seem to dictate whom they have gone after non-stop since she was announced as v.p. pick...

    they are virtually ignoring everybody else...

    +1. Perhaps it is here morals, Christian witness or her solid pro 2nd amendment stance that he objects to.
