Sarah Palin: Obama Spending $20 Million to Promote ObamaCare “One of the Stupidest Things I Ever Heard of”

By Gary P Jackson

Sarah Palin wasted no time talking with Greta about Obama cronies getting millions of dollars as payback for support.

As you know, the Obama regime has hired one of their cronies to “promote” ObamaCare, paying them $20 million. As Sarah notes, ObamaCare is likely to be declared unconstitutional when the Supreme Court announces it’s decision in June. And yet, Obama is handing out millions to his cronies like candy on Halloween.

This is a serious issue of corruption, and yet, nothing from the presumptive Republican presidential nominee or his campaign on this subject. In fact, we rarely, if ever, hear talk of reform from the presumptive nominee.

Sarah and Greta also talk about remarks made by Vice President Joe Biden, concerning the Tea Party, and the union thugs attempt to recall Governor Walker in Wisconsin.

They also discuss Sarah’s endorsements, specifically Ted Cruz in Texas. She also announced her endorsement of Orrin Hatch in Utah.

She elaborates about her reasons for endorsing Hatch on the SarahPAC website:

“Mr. Balanced Budget” for Utah

Orrin Hatch is part of the one percent. No, not that one percent you’ve heard about. He’s part of the one percent of national politicians who I think should be reelected. Orrin Hatch is a life-long conservative whose dedication and devotion to the conservative cause and to his beloved and beautiful state of Utah is well documented. Orrin was a Utah state campaign chairman for a fledgling and failing presidential candidate deemed “too conservative” and “unelectable” by the media. Ironically, that candidate was the man who restored our country to be a “shining city on a hill” – Ronald Reagan.

When asked about Orrin Hatch, President Reagan once said: “If every member of the Senate were like Orrin Hatch, we’d be arguing over how to deal with a federal surplus, and that’s why I like to think of Orrin as ‘Mr. Balanced Budget.’ The United States has been strong enough to deter aggression and maintain the peace, in no small degree due to the efforts of Orrin Hatch. He has been a champion of those who fight for freedom.

As President Reagan said, Orrin is “Mr. Balanced Budget.” Long before the issue of debt was on the forefront of Americans’ minds, Orrin Hatch knew our government would face insolvency if we did not get our budget under control. He sponsored or co-sponsored a Balanced Budget Amendment 17 times, and he voted in favor of a Balanced Budget Amendment at least 9 other times. We know he will use his seniority and influence to dissuade politicians from continuing to raise the debt ceiling without any plan to balance the budget and end these dangerously unsustainable deficits.

Orrin Hatch voted against Obamacare and has pledged to repeal it. While we’re on the topic of Obamacare, which is currently before the Supreme Court, keep in mind that the Supreme Court would not look the way it does today if it were not for Orrin Hatch fighting for conservative nominees on the bench – from Clarence Thomas to John Roberts and Samuel Alito. Unlike other Republican Senators who are up for reelection this year, Orrin voted against both of President Obama’s nominees, Kagan and Sotomayor. And unlike some others, Orrin has gone out of his way to embrace the Tea Party movement. 

For the past two years, Orrin has received a 100 percent rating from the American Conservative Union. He’s staunchly pro-life – receiving a 100 percent rating from the National Right To Life Committee. The NRA has given him an A+ rating. Club for Growth listed him as one of the most conservative U.S. Senators and gave him a 99 percent rating.

I join other conservatives like Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, and Tea Party leaders like Sal Russo in encouraging Utah voters to return Orrin Hatch to the U.S. Senate. Since Mark Levin has always got a way with words, read what he recently told Senator Hatch: “I feel that you would be… a terrific elder statesman to a lot of these other young guys who I’m going to be pushing in these other states.” I’m with Mark. That’s spot on.

We need Orrin’s conservative Reagan-like leadership – and our new crop of conservative senators Richard Mourdock, Deb Fischer, and Ted Cruz might need some friendly advice finding their way around the Senate.

  1. What do you think of her endorsement of Orrin Hatch? If I remember correctly, you weren’t particularly a fan of his… I was watching last night when she announced it and I was pretty surprised.

    • Gary P Jackson

      Not a fan of his at all. That said, Sarah made her case for supporting Hatch. Hatch has indeed been one of the few in the Senate talking about fiscal restraint and the need to cut spending and balance the budget. He’s the ranking member on the Finance committee, and will be Chairman if the GOP takes the Senate this November.

      I’m thinking this was a strategic move to make sure she has a like minded person heading up the money end of the Senate come 2013. Remember, cutting spending is a big deal to her.

      He’s also been really good on the Supreme Court, pushing for Conservative thinkers like Thomas, Alito, and Roberts.

      Also, just saw this about Hatch’s opponent:

      Dan Liljenquist just introduced as “a Bain Capital, Mitt Romney Republican.” Not sure I’ve heard that kind of intro before. ‪#utpol‬ ‪#utgop

      I can’t see Sarah endorsing a “Mitt Romney Republican” any time soon.

      I was totally against her backing Newt Gingrich, but understand what she’s doing here, and can live with it. Sarah has a whole lot better political instincts than most. Besides, she’s helping Ted Cruz beat an establishment hack here in Texas. That is worth a LOT to me.

  2. Glad to read your remarks, Gary – and I, too, was a bit surprised. Then I read (again) her reasoning behind the endorsement of Hatch, and can see Palin’s canny political instincts at work: Namely – and I think this is one of the strongest arguments – he was a driving force in helping move the “yes’ votes for Thomas, Roberts & Alito; and, in MY book, that counts for something, indeed!

    But that reminds me that I thought he was a ranking member of the JUDICIARY Committee – NOT Finance! Of course, I really don’t know that for positive, just that I recall that he often locked horns with that old bastard, Ted Kennedy, in judicial matters (esp. in that nasty fight over Bork that the GOP – and, presumably, Hatch as well – lost, no small thanks to Chappiquiddick Ted!). So, on the statistical chance that at least two elder SCOTUS Justices will need replacing within the next 4 years (no matter who’s Prez), someone of Hatch’s stature & political leaning will be vital to our Cause!

    The other comment is that this morning Glenn Beck really had a minor snit-fit about Palin’s endorsement of Hatch, although he didn’t malign Palin directly, just expressed extreme surprise & disappointment, etc. I kept screaming at the radio, of course, “But, Glenn, remember that he’s a key person when the Senate Judiciary Committee has to vote on a POTUS appointment to the SC before that person is even voted on by the entire Senate!”Beck kept repeating, “But I thought that Liljenquist was more Conservative than Hatch!” And if he (Beck) could vote (he’s a registered Independent, so, by the laws of the State of Texas, cannot vote in the primary election), he’d vote for Liljenquist.

    I’m putting this particular Palin decision in a broader “John McCain” category – i.e., unless he’s a RINO like Lugar, he’s just Conservative enough (and, of course, powerful enough) to earn an endorsement. As we all know, Palin does NOT wish to squander political capital – and she just might if she had endorsed Liljenquist.

    • Gary P Jackson

      He’s ranking member of finance, he’ll be the Chairman if we take back Congress.

      I’m learning more about his challenger. He’s a complete fraud. Not a Tea Party guy. In fact he has said he thought the Tea Party was going to go away.

      Sarah chose right.
