Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is not impressed with U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan’s proposed budget.
Palin told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Thursday the spending plan would increase spending by nearly $1.2 trillion over 10 years.
“Bless his heart. He probably has more faith in politicians than I do, because I’ve been in this political arena on the local, state and now national level for a long time,” Palin said. “Future congressmen and women don’t have to obey what today’s congressmen and women wish for in terms of budget cuts that may happen in 10 years.”
Americans still wanted Palin to run, Hannity said, asking whether she was considering any particular race.
“Not for Senate this go-around, no,” Palin said. “But in the meantime, I’m gonna be out and about, across the country, getting, hopefully, the right people at least on the map, perhaps some underdogs, some unknowns, running for the right reasons.”
On Thursday, Palin was in Fort Myers, Fla., campaigning for state Sen. Lizbeth Benacquisto, who is running for the seat formerly held by Republican Rep. Trey Radel in Congressional District 19.
When Hannity ran a clip of Palin’s recent appearance on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon, Palin said she hadn’t seen the skit mocking Russian President Vladimir Putin since taping it and thought it was “flippin’ funny.”
