Obama Adviser Admits That Obamacare’s Death Panels Are “Inevitable”

A top Democrat strategist and donor who served as President Obama’s lead auto-industry adviser recently conceded that the rationing of heath services under Obamacare is “inevitable.”

Steven Rattner advocated that such rationing should target elderly patients, while stating, “We need death panels.”

Rattner serves on the board the New America Foundation, or NAF, a George Soros-funded think tank that was instrumental in supporting Obamacare in 2010. Soros’ son, financier Jonathan Soros, is also a member of the foundation’s board.


Rattner was the so-called “car czar,” the lead auto adviser to the Treasury Department under Obama.

Last month, Rattner penned an opinion piece in the New York Times titled “Beyond Obamacare” in which he proclaimed “We need death panels” and argued rationing must be instructed to sustain Obama’s health-care plan. His comments have been virtually ignored by traditional media as the president campaign’s for a second term.

  • I remember when we were called conspiracy theorists for simply saying that these things were part of Obamacare…you know, because they were/are. But not Obama’s own folks admit it. I guess the liberals will now stop telling us we’re crazy for saying death panels will happen and now they’ll start supporting them. That’s their usual pattern.

      They will still call you crazy because that is their way, and the news media will repeat it until you are. This country now has cancer and it will die, because the blacks, mexicans, single women, chinese, democrats, rinos, are all living off the government, and they will not let go even unto a collapse. What will happen to Israel will happen to us. Obama will see to that.

  • Isn’t that killing the host to save the parasite?

    The trouble with Death Panels, is that what goes around comes around, and Mr. Obama may be up for his turn, when it comes time!

      No obama will have his own medical team and sanctuary in Hawaii. How many politicians ever suffer from their own destructive laws to the rest of us.
