I don’t know about you but when I consider the Supreme Court’s review of “ObamaCare,” Sarah Palin is probably the last person I’d call on for analysis of the matter. But Palin’s BFF, Greta Van Susteren – who is a lawyer – nevertheless trotted her out last night to offer her thoughts on the issue. Palin also suggested that she understands the Constitution better than President Obama.
Palin, wearing a blaring red, white and blue necklace, didn’t let a little thing like not being a lawyer stop her from declaring the law unconstitutional. Nor did the fact that as far as anyone can tell she has no expertise in medicine nor health care delivery prevent her from announcing that what’s really needed is “a more market-based, patient-centered solution to the challenges.” Van Susteren accepted Palin’s “insights” as if they had weight.
Then Palin went on to attack Obama:
“It is very important that voters stay focused on the fact that if it is deemed unconstitutional that President Obama, who claims to be some constitutional scholar, would try to cram down Americans’ throat this idea that big, centralized government would be able to usurp, not only the will of the people but constitutional, enumerated limited powers of federal government.” She also opined that states have “more flexibility than the federal government, when you consider what the enumerated powers are in our Constitution.”
Palin also announced that health care will “erode that foundation of liberty and free choices.”
I tweeted her last night,
.@SarahPalinUSA Why don't you go for a year without health insurance before you lecture anyone else about the "freedom" of not having it.
