Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said the House Republicans’ replacement healthcare bill still has an "aspect of socialism," but she has "great faith" in President Donald Trump to fix the issues, the Hill reports.

Palin specifically criticized a mandate in the bill that would allow insurers to charge a 30 percent penalty to people who had gaps in their coverage. Palin made the comments during an interview with Breitbart News.

"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," she 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."

House Republicans introduced their bill last week, and with it came criticism from both parties. Some conservative lawmakers called it "Obamacare Lite," with most of the criticism aimed at the refundable tax credits and plans to restructure the country's Medicaid program.

Palin said she was sure Trump was "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."
