Former half-term Alaska governor Sarah Palin has contemptuously dismissed as "socialized medicine" the proposed American Health Care Act, or AHCA, a bill that amends the Affordable Care Act signed into law by former president Barack Obama in 2009. “I don’t know why we’re still even giving an inch on aspects of socialized medicine via this new RINO-care proposal," Palin told Breitbart News in an interview published on Saturday. "Is that okay with conservatives, with Republicans in office?" Palin called on President Donald Trump to "step in and fix" the legislation, "so we know what the difference is between Obamacare and RINO-Care." RINO is an acronym for "Republican In Name Only," a popular intra-party insult meant to indicate insufficient conservatism.
