Palin says Obama’s new health care bill is like putting perfume on a pig

Posted by loricalabrese on February 28, 2010

President Obama hosts his televised health care summit with Republican and Democratic lawmakers on Thursday.

After months of criticism that he wasn’t personally involved in shaping the health-reform conversation, President Obama finally released his own plan for legislation on Monday. However, many are not impressed with the much heralded, “President’s proposal,” including the former Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin.

“The President has wrestled control of the health care debate away from Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid by finally introducing his own plan. Unfortunately, the White House’s proposal includes everything we found untenable about the old Senate bill – only this one is even more expensive! This is what you might call putting “perfume on a pig.””

Palin took on the new proposal in a Facebook note on Wednesday titled, “More of the Same, Only More Expensive.”

“The President’s proposal doesn’t include pro-free market ideas like allowing people to buy insurance across state lines, giving individual buyers the same tax benefits as those who get insurance through their employers, or instituting real medical liability reform,” Palin said. “Despite the “kumbaya” rhetoric, Democrats are making plans to ram this bill through the Senate using a partisan procedural maneuver that will bypass the normal bipartisan debate process.”

It’s still not entirely clear that Congressional Democrats can pass health reform on their own and many see the health care summit as a political event.

Palin said, “With a government-growing proposal this bad, it’s no wonder the President wants bipartisan cover for it in an election year. Thursday’s health care summit is already being revealed as little more than a photo-op. The Obama administration still denies the existence of the House Republicans’ health care plan that offers alternative solutions to health care challenges – even though the White House website links right to it.”

A new poll says three of four Americans doubt the meeting will lead to a health care agreement, reports Susan Page of USA TODAY.

“The public is clearly opposed to the Democrats’ health care bills,” Palin added. “Americans want to scrap these big-government plans and start over with common-sense, incremental reform. Some on the left have urged Democrats to vote for Obamacare because it’s a foot in the door for universal health care. They understand what’s at stake; so should the rest of us.”
