>Palin: ‘What The Bailout Does Is Help Those Who Are Concerned About Health Care Reform’

>

This is simply amazing! There is no better reason as to why the Presidential and Vice-Presidential debates need to go on as scheduled then the following exchange between Katie Curic and Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin on this mornings CBS Early Show.

During the interview, Couric asked Palin why she believes the Wall Street bailout is needed.

Palin responded incoherently by claiming that the bailout would “help those who are concerned about health care reform.” Palin then appeared to look down at her notes and says, “Oh, it’s got to be all about job creation”:

COURIC: Why isn’t it better, Governor Palin, to spend $700 billion helping middle-class families struggling with health care, housing, gas and groceries? … Instead of helping these big financial institutions that played a role in creating this mess?

PALIN: Ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up the economy– Oh, it’s got to be about job creation too. So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions.
