Sarah Palin: the Gift that Keeps on Giving

2017 March 12

When Sarah Palin came on the national scene in 2008,  she lit the spark for nationalpopulism, ehich turned into a five alarm fire in 2016.

Now she is speaking out against what she terms “RINO-Care,” the ObamaCare replacement that is being pushed by Paul Ryan and the other establishment Republicans.

From what we have read about “RINO-Care,” it has aspects that are as bad as, if not worse than, ObamaCare – mandates, ability for non-citizens (including illegal aliens) to participate.

While Palin was an eye-opener in 2008, so was Paul Ryan in 2012. Based on what FNC and other news outlets reported, most conservatives thought Paul Ryan was one of them and were truly excited when Mitt Romney named Ryan to the ticket. We should be grateful to Romney because being nominated as the VP candidate lifted the curtain on Paul Ryan, Ryan is anything but conservative. He is the ultimate Exhibit A for what’s wrong with Congress – a man whose primary goals are doing the bidding of big business and special interests and looking for a major bill to  put his name on (regardless of whether it works or not): from having a balanced budget in 20 years to RINO-Care.

Like NASCAR drivers, members of Congress should be required to have the logos of their sponsors sewn on their suits. If this happened, Ryan would be clovered from head to toe.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee and the first major GOP figure to endorse President Donald Trump, is calling out House Speaker Paul Ryan for what she says is “RINO-Care.”

Ryan introduced what he calls the “American Health Care Act,” a bill that does not repeal Obamacare but only amends it. For the last several days, senior Republicans ranging from members of the House Freedom Caucus to other House Republicans to Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AR), Rand Paul (R-KY), Mike Lee (R-UT), and more have raised serious concerns with the bill. Some call it Obamacare 2.0, others call it Obamacare Lite or Ryan-care, and now Palin—in her first interview on the topic, coming on Breitbart News Saturday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel this weekend—calls it “RINO-Care.”

“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.”

Palin expressed serious concern with the fact that Ryan’s healthcare bill does not eliminate Obamacare’s individual mandate. It just shifts the mandate—which requires all Americans to purchase a health insurance plan even if they do not want one. Under Obamacare, those who do not comply, pay a tax to the federal government. Under Ryan’s plan, those who not comply, pay a fee to the insurance companies.

“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.”

At this time, House GOP leadership officials are refusing to answer which lobbyists specifically were involved in writing the bill and which lobbyists wrote which parts of the legislation. Palin told Breitbart News that it’s a “great question” for leadership officials that they should answer because the public deserves to know.

“That’s a great question. That’s a great question,” Palin said when informed of the fact that House GOP leaders have refused to answer which lobbyists were involved in writing the legislation. “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.”

Palin also praised Cotton and Paul and Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA), among others, who are standing up and pushing back on this rush from leadership on this bill. She says that they are “right” in pushing to make sure the process is not rushed in the way that Ryan has been rushing it through the House so far. In fact, this past week, the House Energy and Commerce and Ways and Means Committees stayed in session all night to ram the bill down to the next stages, rather than taking input from the American people and slowly deliberating the process of healthcare reform.

“Cotton is right. Dr. Rand Paul is right. Dave Brat is right. Some of these public servants are right in saying, ‘Let’s do it right this time’ because, remember, the rush job under Obamacare gave us what we’re having to deal with today, which is the devastating system that is again lorded over us,” Palin said. “They passed it with their rushed-through process of theirs. It’s very important that the people are allowed to see what’s in the bill before its first draft so we know what their thinking is, so we know what the difference is between Obamacare and RINO-Care.”

“But we can’t lose sight of the entire premise between the whole pro-Obamacare and the pro-RINO-care arguments,” she continued. “It’s so wrong because it’s still so unconstitutional. It’s still taxation without representation. It still picks winners and losers because some corporations get to opt out of the requirements that hit everyone else. It still infringes on states’ rights, and it still weaponizes the IRS against Americans who just simply seek freedom and choices and sensibility in their families’ health care. The IRS will be taxing aspects of this without representation because we have no choice. We’re shackled to politicians’ whims and special interests’ bullying interests, which does violate the Constitution, and it actually allows government to have a lien on our health.”

    PPaul,

    From previous thread. The RINOplan is a strawman in my estimation. Something that even some of the Dims will shoot down. Then Ryan can say “See. This won’t work either.” The trick is what he says next —

    Option 1: “Its not possible to provide this. I suggest we sunset OCare Jan 2018.”
    Option 2: “Its not possible to provide this. Therefore we will go to single payer in Jan 2018.”

    Which one do you think he will pick?

    The whole Obamacare debate is insane to me. If you total your uninsured car, but then required the insurance companies to sell insurance to anyone even people who already crashed cars then it wouldn’t be called insurance anymore.

    idk even know what Paul Ryan is talking about at these press conferences. He’s always talking about stuff that makes no sense at all.

    Paul Ryan always acts like he’s advancing some grand super thought-out agenda, and he seems to really buy into the stuff he’s talking about.

    Insurance is supposed to protect the buyer from a remote financially catastrophic possibility that one can’t afford. Auto insurance is there to cover the driver and protect him from financial ruin in case he has a terrible accident. Ironically, the wealthier someone is, the less coverage they need. If I wreck my car, even if I total it, I can afford to buy another one. But I can’t afford the $5mm lawsuit. So, all I need is a really good liability policy…I dropped collision, even with the Bozlets now driving. If I was poor, even $1000 would devastate me, so I would need that level of coverage and would need to pay extra for it.

    Now, shifting gears to health insurance. To me, preventative care is like putting gas in the tank or getting an oil change. If I were to find a hypothetical insurance policy that covered routine maintenance, it would be astronomical And funny how even the poor manage to find the money to pay for gas, oil and wiper fluid. Why do our legislators automatically believe that everyone needs health insurance beyond catastrophic?

    Comrade, your genes please — https://www.statnews.com/2017/03/10/workplace-wellness-genetic-testing/ — Employers could demand gene testing of not only yourself but your family members as well. Failure to comply could trigger penalties which exist under OCare. Its HR 1313. Again is the GOPers doing the bidding of the Corps.

    I have read the bill, but not the 4 underlying sections of other bills it affects. At least not yet.

    Option 2: “Its not possible to provide this. Therefore we will go to single payer in Jan 2018.”

    Which one do you think he will pick

    Lyin ryan will opt for single payer, as trump himself has touted that in the past.

    Lyin ryan was a clever little slut,
    A turncoat rino with his nose up obama’s butt,
    Never met an amnesty he didn’t support,
    Upon the pecker of the GOP he is naught but a wart,
    Time to deep six this yapping little mutt.

    Trumps language on Ryancare has morphed a little today, more toward changes are needed in bill, seems like feedback is getting to him, or maybe it was a one off.
