Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin used the name “Pelosi,” as in House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, as a verb while commenting on the immigration reform bill now in the Senate.
In a lengthy essay posted on Facebook early Tuesday morning, Palin compared the bill to Obamacare, saying: “Just like they did with Obamacare, some in Congress intend to “Pelosi” the amnesty bill. They’ll pass it in order to find out what’s in it.”
“And just like the unpopular, unaffordable Obamacare disaster, this pandering, rewarding-the-rule-breakers, still-no-border-security, special-interests-ridden, 24-lb disaster of a bill is not supported by informed Americans,” she continued.
She called on “We the People” to flood legislators’ phone lines “with the input they need to hear.”
Not surprisingly, her position is much like that of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who compared the bill to Obamacare while speaking on the Senate floor Monday.
While describing herself as “an ardent supporter of legal immigration,” Palin said that “any discussion about immigration must center on a secure border,” then noted that “the amnesty bill before the Senate is completely toothless on border security.”
For the second time in as many days, she called out Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and “amnesty supporters,” this time for shooting down amendments that would have improved border security.
Palin suggested that “this bill isn’t about fixing problems; it’s about amnesty at all costs,” then said of promises from politicians:
“If D.C. expects us to just sit back and “trust” them despite our permanent political class and Washington bureaucrats proving themselves so very untrustworthy, then I have a bridge to somewhere in Alaska to sell them.”
After discussing the bad economics of the immigration reform bill and it’s impact on average hardworking Americans, Palin draws attention to what is going on in DC to gain support for the bill:
“Just like they did for Obamacare, the permanent political class is sugaring this bill with one goody after another to entice certain senators to vote for it.
“Look no further than page 983 of the bill, which contains a special visa exemption for foreign seafood workers… This is obviously a hidden favor designed to buy the votes of Alaska Senators Murkowski and Begich.”
In conclusion, Palin called on “concerned Americans to flood our legislators’ phone lines with the input they need to hear from We the People. Join the mama grizzlies who are rearing up tirelessly to swat away false claims that amnesty is a good thing.”
