Palinsanity - Obama Wants to Kill My Baby

Palin's most recent accusation, that a public health care plan would allow politicians and bureaucrats to chose who lives and who dies by deciding who gets coverage, is now a standard talking point by the conservative pundits, even though it is completely baseless. Dubbed "rationing" and "death panels", these claims are 100% fiction. Remember, a Public Option to health care would be just that, optional. This typical Republican fear mongering shows no respect for the public debate, and must be fought back against.

Watch as Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks dismantles Palin's most recent comments, point by point.
