On the one-year anniversary of President Barack Obama's signing healthcare reform into law, Sarah Palin says it is “less popular than ever.” The former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate also told Fox News Wednesday that the 2012 election results will stand as proof of what Americans feel about Obamacare.
“I think a year later . . . it’s less popular than ever. And remember [then-House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi saying: ‘You got to pass it and then we'll find out what’s in it’? Well, now, a year later — we’re starting to find out what's in it,” Palin told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren. “And I think people are even more and more hesitant to embrace this job-killing, $3 trillion dollar, unaffordable overreach of a government program.
“You’re going to find in 2012, people are going to get elected again on the idea of the promise of repealing Obamacare,” Palin said. “They know it's killing jobs; they know that premiums are going up; they know it doesn’t fix any problem; and they know that we were not told the truth by the White House as it pertained to information, facts, numbers, that have to do with Obamacare. We were told that it was going to reduce premiums.”
Noting that “teacher’s pets” have gotten waivers from adhering to the healthcare reform law, Palin called that a “joke” and “unfair.”
“And not only is Obamacare unconstitutional, and that’s going to be proven in the courts, but Greta, a thousand waivers that have given, been given to friends — I’m going to call them ‘teacher's pets’ — by the Obama administration,” she said. “And there hasn’t been real clarity there in explaining why some folks get waivers and why other people don’t.
“How about a waiver for the entire country? And it is called repeal. Let’s get rid of it and let's fix healthcare in this country with market-based solutions that have been proposed over and over again by the Republicans.”
