Sarah Palin: Obamacare an atrocious, evil policy

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin had some harsh words (again) for national Democrats – such as former Vermont governor Howard Dean – who are finally agreeing that Obamacare will lead to the kind of health-care rationing that Palin described as “death panels” during the 2008 presidential campaign.

In a recent op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, Dean didn’t use the term “death panels,” but he did criticize Obamacare as angering patients and doctors because “bureaucrats in either the private or public sectors are making medical decisions without knowing the patients.”

sarahpalinIn a Fox News interview Saturday, Palin said Dean and other Democrats were simply jumping off “the Obamacare train wreck that’s coming down the pike.”

The “death panels,” she said, are just one part of this “atrocious, unaffordable, cumbersome, burdensome, evil policy of Obama’s, and that is Obamacare.”

In response to a separate question from Fox News Eric Bolling, Palin criticized the Washington press corps and its kid-gloves treatment of President Obama at his news conference Friday, saying the reporters’ softball questions let Obama keep downplaying congressional investigations into his administration.

There were no questions about the IRS targeting of conservative groups in the run-up to last year’s election, despite continuing hearings by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and David Camp, R-Mich., chairman of the House Committee on Ways and Means.

And only Fox News’ Ed Henry asked about continued investigations into last year’s attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, which Obama essentially declined to address except to say charges have been filed.

Obama himself and White House spokesman Jay Carney have repeatedly characterized the Benghazi and IRS investigations as “phony scandals.” Palin said reporters failed to ask the crucial follow-ups.

“Nobody’s asking him, ‘which scandals are you characterizing as phony?’” she told Fox News’

Palin also firmly took the side of Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul in his high-profile dispute with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie – both prospective candidates for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.

Paul, she said, has a “healthy libertarian streak” Republicans need.

“Chris Christie is for more government, and his record proves it,” she said.
