Sarah Palin is sick of hearing about Syria.

A little more than a week after the former Alaska governor suggested the world "let Allah sort it out" in Syria's civil war, Palin posted a video to her various social media accounts urging U.S. lawmakers to ignore "this foreign fiasco distraction" and "get back to work."

"It is time to bomb Obamacare," Palin wrote on her Facebook page above the video. The message, posted late Monday, has generated more than 56,000 likes.

The two-minute video, titled "Just Sayin'," includes clips of political pundits debating Palin's controversial claim that the Affordable Care Act would lead to "death panels," and ends with the message "to be continued ... sadly."

Late last month, Palin criticized Obama's plan to strike Syria over the Aug. 21 chemical weapons attack that killed more than 1,000 people in the suburbs of Damascus.

“So we’re bombing Syria because Syria is bombing Syria? And I’m the idiot?” Palin wrote in a Facebook message. “Bottom line is that this is about President Obama saving political face because of his ‘red line’ promise regarding chemical weapons."

The tea party's efforts to defund Obamacare, Politico notes, have largely been pushed off the table on Capitol Hill as lawmakers grapple with the question of authorizing U.S. military intervention in Syria.
