Krugman: U.S. Needs Death Panels, Sales Taxes
Breitbart ^ | Joel Griffith

Posted on 02/05/2013 1:47:44 PM PST by JohnPDuncan

Nobel Prize winning “economist” Paul Krugman spoke at Sixth & I Historic Synagogue in Washington, D.C. last week. During the Q&A session following the lecture, an audience member asked him about the rising national debt.

Earlier in the evening, Krugman had already vocalized his satisfaction at President Obama’s apparent lack of concern over the exploding cumulative deficit. However, in a moment of brutal honesty, the esteemed Princeton professor revealed his long term prognosis. According to the professor:

Eventually we do have a problem. That the population is getting older, health care costs are rising…there is this question of how we’re going to pay for the programs. The year 2025, the year 2030, something is going to have to give…. …. We’re going to need more revenue…Surely it will require some sort of middle class taxes as well.. We won’t be able to pay for the kind of government the society will want without some increase in taxes… on the middle class, maybe a value added tax…And we’re also going to have to make decisions about health care, doc pay for health care that has no demonstrated medical benefits . So the snarky version…which I shouldn’t even say because it will get me in trouble is death panels and sales taxes is how we do this.

Ah, yes, I remember the outrage and mockery with which Sarah Palin’s coinage of the term “Death Panels” was met like it was only yesterday. Well, actually, it was only yesterday. It isn’t as if the media have no memory, because they do. What they also have is the brass to pretend it never happened.

"Frankly I am glad you commies are telling us exactly what you're planning."

So am I. And those pseudo-Americans who are trying to establish themselves as some sort of leftist nobility or ruling class over all the rest of us are going to be stunned at the response to their plans.

Will we see him at the front of the line for the death panels or will those be for the little people? Much like UT Austin prof Pianka teaches 90% of humans need to be exterminated with ebola.

But if you got run over by a car, you’d be entitled to unlimited healthcare at their expense...

Sorry guy. I don’t know how old you are, but “seniors” have been paying for you for a long, long time.

We’re all in this together. Obama is trying to oppose the old and the young (an increasingly tiny crowd, since the thirty-and-forty somethings appear to have neglected to bother to have children, unlike their now senior parents, who actually did have and pay for and raise children, one of which is probably ungrateful you).

So go off and get on your own ice floe when the time comes, you spoiled brat.

The Nobel Prize committee has been a joke for decades.

How much is the American people going to take of all this crap going on!?

An American in Newtown stated it best, from the newtown bee:
snip: You in public office are fundamentally dishonest people. You lead lives of deception at every turn, structuring your lives as comfortably as you can while governing with an indifference and arrogance that is absolutely maddening. When the country is reeling from financial disaster, you waste a trillion dollars on a health care bill we can’t afford and you’ve never read. You claim it’s critical because health care costs are killing this country... no they’re not, you are! You are killing this country. You endorse the ongoing slaughter of millions of unborn children and whine when terrorists are water boarded. You can’t lecture us right in Newtown High School about not doing enough to keep our children safe, while simultaneously slaughtering the unborn. You fabricate the intense, media laden drama of the fiscal cliff and lack the courage to do anything about truly reforming the obscene gluttony of government. You know you’ll be out of office before the bill comes due… you don’t care and have no integrity nor honor.
You lie whenever and wherever you need to to move forth your agenda.

Well, at least Krugman can be given a few brownie points for his (brutal!) honesty...

Krugman can be first in line for the death choice then. See how he likes it then!

You would think a Jewish person would be the last one to suggest such a thing is an option!

Let’s remember that. The demands for a national sales tax are from radical socialists.

Not entirely on topic, but Krugman is channeling Japan’s Deputy PM Taro Aso 'Sorry' for Saying Old People Should 'Hurry up and Die' in a Synagogue. He should never be invited back for his insult to life. Wonder if he'll apologive like Taro Aso. Doubt it, it's a core belief amongst many liberals. There must be a cabinet position for Krugman somewhare.

I am against death panels but I might consider indorsing death squads for liberals, an the issuing of a extermination order.

Does the Death Panel apply to AIDS (preventable) or just old age (not preventable)?

I’ll loan him the gun if he wishes to do the right thing and be the first to volunteer to save the planet and shoot himself. These idiots are simple stupid. I saw a shot on TV earlier of the greens marching and they had a sign that said “save the planet, kill yourself.” I was wondering why they did not simply do that and not put up a sign. Be the FIRST to volunteer. Set an example. Like the Muzzie suicide bomber trainers. Instead of training up kids to do it, man up and be the first to do it. Lead by example.

The 6th Street Synagogue has been in the hands of the wacky and marxist left for decades and nobody gives a damn. It is actually a shual for the left, not sincere believing Jews, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

Some honest and proud Jews do go there, including some of my friends (because they live near it), but the shual functions as a propaganda center for Jewish liberals in DC.

Once they had Victor Navasky (the Nation, “Naming Names” and mentor of present day editor Katrina Van Den Huevel, a red) speak. He wouldn’t take any questions about his pro-communist writings.

Another exhibit praised the Rosenbergs, executed Soviet spies, and I believe there was an exhibit about Soviet operative (and friend of Frank Marshall Davis) Paul Robeson.

Also leftwing plays are performed there.

While the old Communist Party of DC has basically died out (one of its leaders is now a professor of Black History etc at Georgetown University), the new “liberal chic” marxists and Obamites control the synagogue.

This shual is a prime example of how the Leftists have penetrated traditionally conservative Jewish institutions and spread their disinformation and propaganda among the great Jewish uneducated. Just because you have a college degree doesn’t mean that you have common sense and know something relevant.

Krugman is a marxist but he sounds more like a bearded Dr. Menegele (lately of Auschwitz and Brazil). That is why he is teaching at Princeton, a once great university that hired marxists left and right (correction, left and left).

One day Krugman will be old, and I hope a death panel tells him, so long sucker.

I’d prefer that he die tomorrow and save us some carbon footprints.
