(Newser) – Sarah Palin’s political action committee plans to use its monetary might to remove from office 20 Democrats who voted for the health-reform measure that passed the House on Sunday. “We’re going to reclaim the power of the people from those who disregarded the will of the people,” the former Alaska governor writes on her Facebook page, noting that the Democrats on her radar are also in districts she and John McCain carried in 2008.

“Come November, we’re going to print pink slips for members of Congress as fast as they’ve been printing money,” she adds. Three of the Democrats are retiring, Chris Good writes for the Atlantic, and Palin aims to replace them with “Commonsense Conservatives”—code, Good adds, for not-necessarily-Republicans.
