White House Confronts False Claims About Health Care Reform

In response to Sarah Palin and her claims of "death panels," Brazile quoted John Adams, saying, "Facts are stubborn things." She went on to say that Gov. Palin was for end-of life counseling before she was against it, referring to a proclamation she signed as governor back in April of 2008 to encourage Alaskans to "seek out counseling services for these important decisions."

As a sign that the conservatives may be losing its sight on "death panels," Republican strategist Gillespie distanced himself from his party and said it is inaccurate terminology.

"I agree that characterizing the panels that aren't in there in terms of determining how to make spending decision on care, that there is a legitimate concern about those," he said. "I agree that they shouldn't be characterized as death panels."
