Krugman: Yeah, middle class taxes and death panels are on the way

Before Obamacare passed, Paul Krugman and many of his peers mocked anyone who suggested death panels and middle class tax hikes were coming if Obamacare passed. Death panels were even called lie of the year by fact checeking site Politisham. Now that it’s passed, the tune seems to have changed by about 180 degrees.
Watch the shocking admission by Krugman below:
Published on Feb 10, 2013
This is a chilling admission by one of the biggest Liberals around - Paul Krugman. He spoke at a church earlier in the week and admitted that death panels and a value added tax will be needed to pay for rising health care costs, Obamacare and the Entitlement State. Transcript below since it is hard to hear even though I upped the audio as much as possible in Premiere.

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 we 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.
