WASHINGTON ( — Sarah Palin expects a return of the so-called “Death Panels”. According to her it would come in the form of a handiwork of the bipartisan debt commission rather than as a creation of the Obama administration.

In her statement she aims at the commission for advocating cuts in defense,

Among the few areas of spending it does single out for cuts is defense - the one area where we shouldn’t be cutting corners at a time of war, Worst of all, the commission’s proposals institutionalize the current administration’s new big spending commitments

She doesn’t restrict herself to this but expresses her ‘view’ on GOP Congressman and budget guru Paul Ryan of Wisconsin,

In my view, a better plan is the Roadmap for America’s Future produced by Rep. Paul Ryan. The Roadmap offers a reliable path to long-term solvency for our entitlement programs, and it does so by encouraging personal responsibility and independence.

She continues, (as she does always)

We must turn around before it’s too late, and [Ryan's] roadmap offers a clear plan for doing so,” Palin hales. “But it does more than just fend off disaster. CBO calculations show that the Roadmap would also help create a “much more favorable macroeconomic outlook” for the next half-century. The CBO estimates that under the Roadmap, by 2058 per-person GDP would be around 70 percent higher than the current trend.
