Skip to comments.'Morning Joe' Tempers Flare Over Obamacare
Posted on 10/01/2013 5:28:48 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest
Seems like the shutdown is already causing nerves to get frayed. Some of it might have been for show, but tempers seemed to truly flare on today's Morning Joe. An on-air spat broke out, with Joe Scarborough in one corner, and Mika Brzezinski and the Washington Post's Eugene Robinson in the other.
Fed up with what he described as a "paid advertisement for Obamacare" by Brzezinski and Robinson, Scarborough insisted on giving his side of the story. He predicted that Obamacare will fail, as major employers opt to pay fines instead of providing health insurance to their employeees. That in turn will cause millions of people to be dumped into federal programs. The end result, said Scarborough, will be the disappearance of private health insurance within ten years and a complete government takeover of the program.

Scarborough mixes it up with Mika, predicts Obamacare failure will lend to destruction of private health insurance. Ping to Today show list.
If Mika takes her top off, I might - might! - tune in.

Well, Joe isn’t as stupid as I thought he was. I wonder how much all the health care providers will like being government employees.
Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in a while.
I agree, that has been obama’s end game all along.
Scarborough is 100% correct, except for the part where it said that would be a "fail". This is exactly what it's intended to do - kill private insurance to usher in the ultimate goal of single-payer.
So, he predicted this morning what I and others predicted way back when the law was being "debated", prior to its being passed so we could find out what's in it.
Let me guess. Eugene Robinson was defendin’ whatever barry was sellin’.
yeah, she’s not bad ‘till she opens that yap.
Morning Jerk in action.
Hey, even Laz won’t hit Mika!
This would not be a failure of Obamacare.
This is exactly what it is intended to accomplish, total government control of healthcare.
Fox’s Krauthammer made a good point. Seems do-gooder Ohaha
fixed O’Care to fail by sap-happily including coverage for “existing conditions.”
He’s depending on age-specific younger Americans to sign on——but healthy younger Americans (with no sense of their own mortality) aren’t amenable to buying insurance they figure they don’t need.
They WILL need it to cover injuries if/when they fall down the stairs.....more likely to pick-up the phone to sign on at the bottom of the stairs.....K/hammer says.
Mmmmmm......time to rejigger the dollar amounts Ohaha says will be flowing in. (Cackle)
A Good First Step Toward Single Payer - Sen. Bernie Sanders, The Guardian
He would if he had an icepick. Not for her, for his eardrums.
So you’re saying Mika did not comment on O/care’s body cavity searches?
Navigators are instructed to make sure women are outfitted w/ IUD’s and men are appropriately sheathed....to prevent costly pregnancies.
I hear Michelle’s insisting the bill be amended-—after they get your tax info, Navigators will perform breast and vaginal exams, as well.
She does have perky breasts.
Surgically enhanced perkiness.
Eugene Robinson = Juan Williams.
Given she is a liberal, if she had a kid then by definition she breast fed them till they were 13 or so.
So any perkyness is cosmeticly enhanced...
Well, I would, but I'd need a little duct tape.
Are you saying she had a reduction?
Boehner loves to cave in so that he can then sob and pitch his very best hissy fit on camera.
In 4 + years Boehner has had lots of memorable sob performances!
Changing the House Bill to be sent to Reid is Boehners way of trying to grovel at the feet of Reid.
Boehner must go!
Almost 4 years of failure to defund Obamacare is proof enough that Boehner has been a failure as the Speaker of the House.
Boehner skated by during this battle ONLY because Reid wanted to shutdown the Government.
The next battle is what Reid is preparing for: Crushing all Republican opposition to a large increase in the Federal Budget.
Reids plan is to move quickly, (Obama is scandal ridden, and has but 3 years left if he is not Impeached), to enshrine Obamacare as a single payer, Federal Insurance system, independent of supervision by the US Congress.
Then Federal Obamacare Insurance premiums can be raised by the IRS anytime the Democrats need to extract more money from the taxpayers, and there will be nothing that Congress can do to stop the Insurance premium increase.
Thus, Congress would not be involved in this tax money raising scheme.
As for the Republicans, Reid is unconcerned about them, as he has always been able to beat them EVERY TIME.
Well, every time that Boehner has been Speaker of the House.
These shows are just badly acted fake reality tee vee about housewives in some coastal city. If you’re paying for cable or satellite and watching these shows, you’re part of them problem.
My understanding is that a sizable portion of her mammary glands were transplanted to fill a large cavity in her cranium.
Except in the bizarro world of Obamacare, failure is success. This is what Obama planned all along.
You could see Mika becoming annoyed. I wonder if Chuck is fed up with playing the token pseudo-Republican dummy?
It's called a 'perverse incentive' Scarborough.... so many built into OhMadACare ... it'll take years to identify them all...
Why would young people sign up? Most of them will be on their parents’ insurance until they’re nearly 30.
Eugene Robinson is such a far left flake/white hating racist that I can’t stand to listen to or read his opinions.
The smart ones will sign up, get their checkups and other work done, then quit paying once their procedures have been completed. They'll save big bucks, and will only be subject to at most a penalty of six months.
