Sarah Palin does not care for the Republicans' newly proposed health care plan, going so far as to compare it to socialism.

In an interview with far-right website Breitbart, the former Alaska governor claimed the plan was only Republican in name.

Palin said she expects President Donald Trump to "step in and fix it."

"Even in this new quasi-reformed proposal, there is still an aspect of socialism. That's the whole premise here," said Palin.

While the GOP's proposal would drop the Obamacare mandate requiring americans to have health insurance, the part Palin specifically disagrees with is a rule that would allow insurance companies to add a 30 percent penalty for those who sign up later.

Still, Palin has faith in Trump. Citing his career as businessman, she told Breitbart, "...he's going to understand whether this makes sense in his vision of how to grow businesses and how to get government off our back and back on our side."
