This won’t come as a surprise to anyone who paid attention to the ObamaCare debate. But we didn’t get such frank explanations from Obama or his advisers before the passage of ObamaCare.
Obama’s Budget Director Peter Orszag explains how the new law sets up the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) to limit how much we are allowed to spend on health care. Orszag smugly explains how they will be able to do this without any action from elected representatives. The IPAB is what Sarah Palin called a death panel.
ObamaCare replaces elected representatives with rule by the decree of unelected bureaucrats. This is another step towards ending constitutional government.
