WOW Sarah Palin Slams Trump's Carrier Deal

Good for Sarah.

In a op-ed in Young Conservatives published Friday, Palin first expresses excitement for the Carrier employees whose jobs are staying in Indiana.

“What a relief for hundreds of workers,” she wrote. “Merry Christmas Indiana!”
But she goes onto to blast the deal as “crony capitalism" and an example of the "hallmark of corruption" and "socialism."
Foundational to our exceptional nation’s sacred private property rights, a business must have freedom to locate where it wishes....When government steps in arbitrarily with individual subsidies, favoring one business over others, it sets inconsistent, unfair, illogical precedent,” Palin wrote. “Then, special interests creep in and manipulate markets. Republicans oppose this, remember?”
“Instead, we support competition on a level playing field, remember? Because we know special interest crony capitalism is on big fail.”
"However well meaning, burdensome federal government imposition is never the solution. Never. Not in our homes, not in our schools, not in churches, not in businesses,” Palin wrote.
"[K]now that fundamentally, political intrusion using a stick or carrot to bribe or force one individual business to do what politicians insist, versus establishing policy incentivizing our ENTIRE ethical economic engine to roar back to life, isn’t the answer."


  1. Well my respect for Palin just went up a tick

  2. Umm I guess there was no job for her in a Trump Administration

  3. Except no one forced Carrier to stay OR move. And all Trump provided was the roadmap for tax cuts ALREADY PLANNED for all businesses. Indiana did kick in $7mm - something Pence had already structured 9 months ago.

    It's great to take potshots at Trump for not being a Mises purist - but the fact is that there are MANY blue collar jobs that could have been saved the past 8 years with very few moves. The pain of the rust belt isn't contrived. Pence attracted tons of industry from IL with his policy already.

    Despite what the contrarians say, "hope" is a real commodity for productivity and business planning - especially when given a framework of expected outcomes from planned policy.

    There is NO bigger supporter of Palin than me. But it would help terribly if EPJ would correctly report the actual news.
