Socialist. Death panels. Downright evil. Those are just some of the talking points Sarah Palin uses to describe the Democrat's health care plan. Well, I wonder if she was quite so outspoken when she was in Canada receiving medical attention?

She said that her family used to go to Canada to get medical care when she was growing up. And she admitted that she found that "kind of ironic now". Well, it's more than ironic, it's downright hypocritical.

It's time we stop letting Republican propaganda define our health care policy.

I’m tired of seeing this debate framed by Republicans like Palin, who are more interested in protecting the health  insurance companies than they are in bringing better health care coverage to millions of Americans.

It’s time to fight back.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
