Asked To Explain Her Alternative To Obamacare, Sarah Palin Offers Word Soup
Matt Lauer tried getting Sarah Palin to articulate an alternative to Obamacare. It did not go well.
…Palin gave a rambling answer that echoed her infamous 2008 interview with Katie Couric, in which the former Republican vice presidential nominee awkwardly struggled to name a newspaper or magazine she often read.
“The plan is to allow those things that had been proposed over many years to reform a health-care system in America that certainly does need more help so that there’s more competition, there’s less tort reform threat, there’s less trajectory of the cost increases, and those plans have been proposed over and over again,” Palin said.
While Palin struggled to explain what a conservative alternative to Obamacare would look like, she made it clear that she dislikes the Affordable Care Act.
“And what thwarts those plans? It’s the far left,” she said “It’s President Obama and his supporters who will not allow the Republicans to usher in free market, patient-centered, doctor-patient relationship links to reform health care.”
