Republican healthcare plans, that is. Chris Honore:
In a recent interview, Sarah Palin, who regards herself as the tip of the tea party spear, was asked to explain her alternative to Obamacare. Palin at first sidestepped the question, saying it’s not just the grassroots tea party movement that wants to repeal ACA. When the correspondent pressed her again for a plan, Palin said, “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. And what thwarts those plans? It’s the far left. 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.”
Seriously? That’s it? Indeed, that’s it. Ask any Republican to PowerPoint the GOP plan for health care reform and you will get a variation of Palincare. A study in vacuity.
Alan Grayson was correct.
