This Is Really Happening
Sarah Palin tells Katie Couric that this bailout is actually about…health care reform (note: she glances at her notes and switches to job creation quickly – although I still don’t know what she’s talking about).
For some reason the sound is off-cue by a second, but you’ll get the gist:
COURIC: Why isn’t it better, Governor Palin, to spend $700 billion helping middle-class families struggling with health care, housing, gas and groceries? … Instead of helping these big financial institutions that played a role in creating this mess?
PALIN: Ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up the economy– Oh, it’s got to be about job creation too. So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions.
