Facebook is her weapon of choice. She doesn’t mince her words:

The rising cost of care has driven the entire health care reform debate. So how does the President’s proposal address this central issue? Price controlsThat’s right: Washington, D.C. wants to give a panel of bureaucrats the power to cap insurance premiums and prices. As Michael Cannon of the Cato Institute notes, “artificially limiting premium growth allows the government to curtail spending while leaving the dirty work of withholding medical care to private insurers.” This leads to rationing. Any economist worth his salt – including the White House’s own Larry Summers – will tell you that price controls lead to all sorts of negative unintended consequences. It’s another step towards government controlled health care and away from the real solution: free market, patient-centered reform.

Unlike really smart columnists in the Washington Post, Palin sprinkles her Facebook posts with links to MSM articles that confirm her points. That’s the sort of thing bloggers do;  it is just so distracting. It practically invites the reader to check her work.
