It's not just rationing. Rationing has always existed in the health care system. Is there government rationing today? With medicare and medicaid, sure. Has there been increased rationing since ACA?
I consider my definition of death panels more accurate in present terms although I do believe Palin's definition could happen once health care is turned over to politicians.

And the answer to your second question is yes, without a doubt. Hospitals can now be penalized for readmitting Medicare patients. All because of a provision of the ACA. To me that is rationing.
