Fox Business host, Maria Bartiromo, held back NOTHING on Tuesday when she ever so gracefully RIPPED into Johnathan Gruber, who is the architect of one of America’s biggest pains in the butt… Obamacare.
Gruber had the audacity to claim that “Obamacare had actually saved people money” ….
I’ll give you a moment of silence to digest that statement.
Bartiromo didn’t hesitate to go right in and call him back to reality. She not only told him but showed him that evidence given tells a completely different story than what he was carrying on about.
“It’s very hard to make the case that you’re making knowing what the reality is, and the reality is families cannot afford Obamacare,” Bartiromo said. “And the reality is premiums for families across the country have skyrocketed, and even if you’re in a plan with your company like you say so many people are, companies are not hiring more workers because they are being forced to provide health care.”
Gruber of course replied to that and tried his best to scrape his way out of this one…but obviously he had his stuff pushed back on him at this point. Here was his attempt though, just for kicks…
Reiterating familiar rhetoric and using his big words that actually mean nothing together, Gruber even included President Obama in on his reply, stating that Obamacare’s shortcomings are due to state resistance and nothing further than that.
If you are like me, hearing that just gave you a sudden urge to punch your screen. However, because we are not crazy liberals, shortly after that thought you decided not to…
But still..what an asshat right?
He went on to point to states that have been “difficult” in the process of getting Obamacare rolled out and monitored as instructed by the Obama administration. He also has said that premiums are very much under control.
The Obamacare architect also said the health care market was undergoing a transition, a transition into a “new and innovative insurance market” for which health care giants like United HealthCare and Blue Cross Blue Shield are “not prepared.”
United HealthCare and Blue Cross Blue Shield are not the only companies struggling under the weight of Obamacare. Back in August, word broke that Aetna would join the list of companies pulling out of Obamacare, a decision many feared would leave millions of Americans with only one health care option.
Bartiromo and Gruber battled back and forth regarding the stagnant American economy, a fact that Bartiromo said only helped strengthen her point.
“Business are not hiring workers because the legislation is too expensive,” she said. “We can disagree on it but it’s a fact, and that’s what businesses say when they come on this program. So the question becomes, how do you make this legislation less expensive?”
Gruber responded, “Please don’t use the word fact, because you’re not saying facts, you’re saying anecdotes.”
To this Bartiromo FIRED BACK:
“I’ll tell you what is a fact. A fact is that economic growth is 2 percent or lower, and the fact is that one of the reasons that economic growth is as low as it is is because businesses are not hiring workers and not doing activity because of the cost of Obamacare. That’s a fact. Do you dispute economic growth?”
I’m sure after that, the man said something really NOT brilliant to further his dying cause…if you want to know what that is you can check it out by clicking here.
