Rep. Spencer Bachus of Alabama, who is likely the next chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, says Sarah Palin likely cost Republicans control of the U. S. Senate. (h/t Think Progress)

“The Senate would be Republican today except for states (in which Palin endorsed candidates) like Christine O’Donnell in Delaware,” Bachus said. “Sarah Palin cost us control of the Senate.”

He said Tea Party candidates did well in U.S. House races, but in the U.S. Senate races, “They didn’t do well at all.”

Bachus says he hopes his fellow Republicans get the message of the past election, which is disgust with both parties, and choosing the lesser of two evils. And Bachus believes Americans want health care reform.

“However, we must have health care reform,” just not in the form proposed by Obama. “For instance, we must do something about health insurance coverage of pre-existing conditions,” he said. “People no longer work their entire lives at one job.”
