Palin Quoted Reagan Calling Medicare Communism
Alaskan dingbat Sarah Palin proudly quoted Ronald Reagan last night, you betcha. So what was that weird quote about, anyway? It's from this LP propaganda record, part of a "campaign organized by the American Medical Association to block the passage of Medicare."
Here's what Palin quoted:
Ha ha, she wants to end Medicare, to stop the communists, and make old people die. She hates old people.
