One wonders if the Palin family hustle also included providing false information in order to receive "free" benefits from the Canadian publicly funded health care program. If Palin's parents paid cash for the medical services they got for themselves and their children, what motivated them to travel to Whitehorse? Superior quality of health care? Convenience? Anonymity?
The vocal opponent of health care reform in the U.S. steered largely clear of the topic except to reveal a tidbit about her life growing up not far from Whitehorse.
"We used to hustle over the border for health care we received in Canada," she said. "And I think now, isn't that ironic."
The real story behind Palin's extemporaneous comment could possibly be quite revealing.
