Sarah Palin’s latest speech slammed Republicans who didn’t support the effort to defund ObamaCare. Speaking in Des Moines, Iowa, Palin told Republicans who voted against the measure, “If you like your government, you can keep your government,” and slammed them for throwing the good guys “under the bus.”
In front of a packed hall last weekend at the Faith and Freedom Coalition, Palin praised the Republicans who voted against ObamaCare, but said their efforts fell short due to those party who didn’t keep their word. “They promised that they would do everything in their power to fight against socialized medicine, against ObamaCare,” said Palin, according to the Des Moines Register. “But when it came time to stand and defund it, they waved the white flag of surrender, and they threw under the bus the good guys who do stand up and fight for us.”
Palin criticized the Obama administration throughout her speech and referred to it as the “church of big government.” She accused measures that the President has approved of increasing unemployment, growing poverty, making an already bad economy worse and increasing the national debt in the process.”
The always-controversial conservative is currently on a national tour to promote her new Christmas-themed book, Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas. She made headlines earlier this week by hinting that she was unsure about the chances of a possible Presidential run by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.
Speaking last Monday on NBC’s Today, Palin said she wouldn’t put all her hopes on one candidate and said there “isn’t a Ronald Reagan” in today’s political scene. However, she praised the fact that New Jersey was now a red state and declared that it was “better than the alternative.”
