According to the Huffington Post, Sarah Palin lets loose on a D.C. establishment she deems full of "corrupt bastards" in a new Op-Ed for Breitbart News.

Likening the current D.C. elite to a group of self-proclaimed "corrupt bastards" she encountered during her days in Alaska, Palin writes, "Today, doesn't it seem like we have a Corrupt Bastards Club in D.C.? On steroids? It might not be as oily and obvious as its Alaska counterpart, but it’s just as compromised because its members, too, are indifferent to what their actions mean for We the People."

Palin's Op-Ed goes on to criticize Obamacare, arguing that it's a plot to enact single-payer healthcare in the United States. Palin writes, "Obamacare in its current corporatist form isn’t meant to last. It’s meant to push us towards full socialized medicine with a single-payer system." How Palin imagines Obamacare's reliance on competition and market dynamics in its healthcare exchanges will result in single-payer is unclear — but Canada is prominently involved.
