Sarah Palin criticized the Republican Party, or what she calls the Republicans in name only (RINOs), on Saturday.
Palin talked about the House Republicans healthcare bill and how it still failed to serve the majority of Americans.
While she said the plan could be worked with, she believed it would be best handled by the states.
“I do want to speak about this, but I am tempted to say not another word from our fearless leaders about this new form of Obamacare that I’m going to call RINO-care—not another word from them until we are definitively told that there is no provision whatsoever allowing Congress to exempt itself whatsoever with this law,” said Palin in an interview with Breitbart.
“There is much that we agree on,” Palin said. “Thank the Lord, we all agree that Obamacare is devastating one-sixth of our economy. That’s what health care encompasses. Once the government took it over—it obviously is unaffordable, unsustainable and unwanted. So, from the get-go, thank the Lord we all have that in common, and we want to do away with Obamacare,” she said.
“I would ask Paul Ryan’s forgiveness if I come across sounding like I’m just whining and complaining about a problem without proposing a solution. Like Teddy Roosevelt said, that is the definition of whining. So I want to propose solutions, and I want Paul Ryan to listen to the people who are suggesting that, okay, if the government is going to be this involved in our healthcare system and choices, then allow the states to take this over. Get it out of big government’s hands,” she continued. “The most responsive level of government is that which is closest to the people. If you’re not going to allow individuals to have the freedoms and the autonomy and the choices provided in their health care, at least let it be a states’ rights issue. So that’s one.”
Regardless of where we stand as a country, the next healthcare system we pass must properly cover the majority of Americans, not only a certain section of the population. Obamacare is a flawed system due to the fact that it suffers from that same problem, but the new Republican proposal is no better.
Added bonus, a hilarious clip of Palin talking about healthcare and guns:
Lucky for us, Trump has the right people standing behind him and it is only a matter of time before the right decisions are made.
