The Republicans didn’t win, the Democrats lost. Now the aim must be to legislate like you mean it. Sarah Palin: It wasn’t a vote for the GOP
Sarah Palin took to Facebook early Wednesday morning to caution jubilant Republicans that voters cast ballots against Washington dysfunction, not necessarily for the GOP.
“The Democrats got mauled today, deservedly so,” Palin writes. “To prohibit that from happening to the GOP in 2016, it must learn the lesson from the last time Republicans held the Senate majority.”
She continued, “This time they must not retreat, and it’s our responsibility to hold them accountable.”
While Palin congratulated the winners and said that the midterm elections sent a message to President Barack Obama that was “undeniably received,” the former Alaskan governor and vice presidential candidate noted that Americans were voting against D.C, not for Republicans.
“Now, new Republican Congressional majority in the House and Senate, please realize that Americans were not necessarily voting FOR any party; they were voting AGAINST the continued dysfunction and corruption in D.C.,” her Facebook post reads. “We the People were saying ‘enough is enough’ to the scandals, crony capitalism, and utter lack of leadership in Washington.”
