Hugh Hewitt interviewed Sarah Palin, and she made a good case for electing a real person to the office of VP. She also made it clear that she’s the only candidate in recent memory to have experienced the day-to-day health care travails of the average working person:

Early on in our marriage, we didn’t have health insurance, and we had to either make the choice of paying out of pocket for catastrophic coverage or just crossing our fingers, hoping that nobody would get hurt, nobody would get sick.

But, unlike her opponent, she understands that more government meddling in the health care market is not the answer:

I support flexibility in government regulations that allow competition in health care that is needed, and is proven to be good for the consumer, which will drive down health care costs and reduce the need for government subsidies.

So, who are we to trust: someone who has actually been there or the hopelessly out-of-touch Joe Biden? In other words, do we need a real human being like Palin or a corrupt buffoon?

It will be interesting to see if Gwen Ifill, the moderator of tomorrow’s debate whose fawning book proves she’s in the tank for Obama, asks a question that gets anywhere near this basic issue.

    Most recently, Palin dealt with the issue of health care during her State of the State Address on January 15, 2008. In that speech, she specifically asked her constituents to take personal responsibility for their health care and not rely on the government to provide what is necessary.
