Only Mavericks Use Socialized Health Care
Palin notes irony of using Canada health care
By DAN JOLING (AP)
ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Sarah Palin has been no friend lately of socialized health care.
She has criticized Canada's system, saying it should be dismantled in favor of free enterprise. And she has denounced President Barack Obama's health plan as being socialized medicine.
But during a weekend speech in Calgary, the former Republican vice presidential candidate acknowledged her family used medical care in Whitehorse, the capital of Canada's Yukon Territory, decades ago.
Well, at least she's aware of the irony. But hey, let's cut her some slack. We all did wild and crazy things in our youth we're not proud of.
Palin's just lucky her brother's burnt ankle never came before a death panel, or who knows what those socialist Canadians would have done...
