Socialized medicine okay for Tripp

More Palin Hypocrisy:  Tripp Has Government Provided Health Insurance

By Shannyn MooreThe dangers of "death panels" were explained to Americans on Sarah Palin's Facebook page. Oh, sweet Lord, she must not sleep at night...her grandson could be the next victim of "socialized medicine."

Recently released documents from the custody battle show clearly Tripp Palin Johnston has socialized health care through Indian Health Services and the Alaska Native Medical Center.

Palin's family has federally funded health care afforded to them...but if you had it Barack Obama might kill you. Put this on the list of Palin's Greatest Hypocritical Hits...volume 97.
Comment:  A court document (see link) says that Tripp Palin Johnston is "an enrolled tribal member of Curyung Tribal Council within the Bristol Bay Native Association consortium."

During the 2008 presidential campaign, I posted some items on whether Sarah Palin's husband Todd was an Alaska Native or not. The gist seemed to be that Todd was a shareholder of the Bristol Bay Native Association, and thus perhaps technically an Alaska Native. But he wasn't an Alaska Native in any real sense--i.e., as a participant or believer in a tribal culture.

The same presumably applies to his children and to his grandchild Tripp.

In any case, it's clear Sarah Palin is one of the biggest hypocrites and liars in contemporary politics. Remember how she was for the Bridge to Nowhere before she was against it? What does it say about Republicans that she's a leading contender for their next presidential nomination?
