Sarah Palin dismisses new GOP health care bill as "RINO-care" and compares it to socialism.

I find this a little surprising since Palin's sugar daddy has endorsed this bill that Paul Ryan cobbled together, but perhaps this shows that she is done throwing her crusty panties at him and getting nothing in return.

I am quoting from a Breitbart article so as always remember to have your hazmat suit firmly fastened before clicking the link because the place is saturated in toxic racism.

Palin starts off by naming some fairly valid points about Congress: 

“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,” Palin said. “As with anything else mandated by Congress, every single dotted I and crossed T better apply to them, too, and not just the people who they are lording this thing over because remember this is government-controlled health care, the system that requires enrollment in an unaffordable, unsustainable, unwanted, unconstitutional continuation of government-run medicine, and even in this new quasi-reformed proposal, there is still an aspect of socialism. That’s the whole premise here.”

Yeah I kind of agree that any health care program put forward by Congress should also apply to them. However she kind of goes off the rails by suggesting that a government run health care program is "unwanted" and "unsustainable." Clearly that has not been the case in just about every industrialized nation in the world that offers government run health care.

(You know like the one in Canada where her father sought care for his family back in the day.)

Having said that she is undoubtedly correct that this GOP version is doomed to failure.

In response to Ryan's plan that those who refuse to sign up for the GOP plan must pay a fee to the insurance companies, Palin makes another, and I can't believe I am saying this, reasonable point: 

“This 30 percent additional fee will be collected by some in the private sector, which will mean politicians are allowed again to pick the winners and losers, and it makes you wonder who’s lobbying hardest for aspects of this new bill because obviously there are special interests involved. Otherwise, certain private sector segments of our economy wouldn’t be rewarded as they will be with this fee, instead of going to the IRS going to private companies,” Palin said. “It would be really helpful if every single one of these politicians would do like the NASCAR drivers do—and it’s been said before—but let them wear their sponsors plastered all over their three-piece suits when they show up so we know what side they’re on and who they’re actually doing their bidding for.”

Okay that whole NASCAR thing is from way back in 2009, but she is not wrong here.  (Again, I can't believe I am saying this.)

In fact liberals argued against Big Pharma's influence during the Obamacare debate.

And once again it appears that Palin is using similar arguments against this bill: 

“The people want to know with this RINO-Care, we know that it helps Big pharma and big lobbyists who need big government to stay in business. We want to and have the right to know who’s actually putting pen to paper and writing this because we know the politicians don’t write the laws.”

 I swear if I have to agree with this woman one more time I am going to gouge my eyes out.

A little later in the article I finally get to completely disagree with Palin, which puts me back in my wheelhouse.

“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. 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."

Ah, much better.

Palin then offers her "solution" which of course is to return all of this to the states to decide individually, ignoring the fact that many states have no interest in getting involved in health care, and that with a smaller pool the insurance premiums will not be lowered nearly as much as they could be with a federal single payer program.

Then Palin seems to remember whose ass she is supposed to be kissing, and does a little knob polishing.

“He will step in and fix it,” Palin said. “I have great faith that President Trump is one who will fulfill campaign promises. He already has a track record of doing so well in these first months, I’m just really proud to have been part of the constituency that wanted him in there and worked hard to get him in there. So, yeah, I’m sure that President Trump is going to do the right thing and listen to all sides, of course, but understand, especially, that as a businessman, he’s going to understand whether this makes sense in his vision of how to grow businesses and how to get government off our back and back on our side."

Okay I don't know what "track record" Palin is talking about here since all Trump has done so far is to sign executive orders, one which already had to go back to the drawing board, and pick Russian operatives to fill his cabinet.

The one thing that I took from this interview is that it is likely reflective of how a number of Tea Party conservatives are viewing this bill and if that is the case it does not bode well for it going forward.

And once it fails, then the Republicans are back to square one with the Affordable Care Act.

If they repeal it without a replacement they will disenfranchise millions of voters and likely lose both the House and the Senate.

But if they replace it with a program worse and less affordable than Obamacare then they are likely to disenfranchise millions of voters and still might lose the House and the Senate.

All in all they are like the dog that chases cars and has no idea what to do once he catches one.

    Well, if it's "socialism" that Paul Ryan is preaching, then its "socialism" for the richest. It sure will not give much to ordinary working or retired Americans or to their families.
    Thanks, GOP. Like most of her GOP fans, Sarah Palin does not know what words like "socialism" or "communism" or "fascism" mean. They've accused President Obama of all three, frequently at the same time and in the same sentence.

    Sarah Palin must be desperate for money right now. First trying to us charity and now politics. Why not get a job, Sarah, and encourage your spouse and adult children (and son-in-law) to do the same?

    Unversal healthcare is the ONLY way to go. I worked for 25 years, and got a pension from the company. They cancelled the healthcare for retirees. So, my $400 a month goes to Medicare $110. Supplemental insurance $156. So almost 3/4 of my pension goes for medical coverage and I am healthy. If we have vouchers to access medical care, I doubt I will be seeing the doctor much. Ryan in all his wisdom said "People will do what they want to do" Meanwhile politicians do not have to concern themselves with this, they have Cadillac insurance covering them.

Why can't I even get HALF of what they do? I live in NC, where it's red as blood and the state is run by the GOP like it's 1917 and 'bosses' are still the norm.

      Why can't us taxpayers get even half of what these well-off 'elected' officials get when it comes to health coverage?

  24. Well, I feel a whole lot better that Palin dislikes this version. Much as I hate the status quo, I am hoping that the Democrats negotiate this plan. It's about as good as it's going to get with the GOP and 45. If it doesn't pass, repeal will stick and there will be nothing. It's the most needy who will suffer most. The hope is to have something like this in place till 2020 when we can get the GOP out. Maybe earlier but if not by then, there will be even more trauma in this country. I'm concerned that the more liberal activists are going to push for simply blocking every and anything just out of principle when there are so May in dire danger of the consequences. Please be smart about fighting the situation and keep in mind the most needy.
