MSNBC's Smerconish to GOP: Apologize to Obama; (for o-care rollout)
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 11/11/2013 10:21:40 AM PST by chessplayer

According to MSNBC's Michael Smerconish, it's Barack Obama who is owed the "real apology" for the disastrous rollout of the health care law. Filling in for Chris Matthews, the Hardball guest host huffed, "The facts are that many of the same people that feel betrayed now will be thanking the President later." [See video below. MP3 audio here.]

Lecturing the 52 million Americans who have lost their insurance, Smerconish added, "These are people in so-called junk plans that could bankrupt them and their families if they ever got sick."

Is this guy a chameleon? Sometimes he has been on a local station and sound like a conservative or a moderate GOPer. now he fills in at MSNBC and he is a spokesman for Obamacare?

Collectivism cannot survive without the insulating barrier of propaganda. Truth proves corrosive to it.

No, they have new plans that will bankrupt them whether they get sick or not. With the sky-high deductibles, they'll still get bankrupted faster if they do get sick.

Does Glenn Beck regret allowing this schmuck to sub for him on his old CNN show back in the day?

“These are people in so-called junk plans that could bankrupt them and their families if they ever got sick.”

Tell it to Bill Elliott who lost his cancer plan and can’t afford the one offered though his state exchange.

Obama was lauded right after his election for having a big interview with the right winger talk radio guy, Smerconish. Every media member swooned that he would so quickly reach out to the other side. Right from the start, he showed how full of BS he would be.

He is the type of guy who if a pacifist saw him on the street, the pacifist would go out of his way to smack him.

The GOP needs to learn how to communicate to the uninformed.
We have the biggest advantage because of Obamacare. The uninformed needs to understand what deductibles and co-insurance means. Otherwise they will proudly waive their Insurance cards and demand services. They don’t understand that they have to pay thousands of dollars out of pocket before services are rendered. The impact will be felt around March to April. The education will be hard knocks. By the way, the out of pocket max won’t be available in 2014.
Of course, The free Medicaid will be available to more people, especially since the program was expanded by 38%, meaning 38% more democrat votes. very sad for our country.

If you’re still paying for cable or satellite every month, you are paying his salary and all of the executives at that network. Don’t continue to be part of the problem.

What is going to bankrupt millions of Americans will be the significantly higher annual deductibles they are forced to pay. And for the record, higher deductibles are supposed to occur with lower premiums, not higher premiums.

Here is the lesson in a nut shell for progressive twits - Nothing is free in this universe. Nothing. It's the physics stupid.

Because writing a political column makes the person an expert. Sure. And I’m the King of Spain. It’s amusing to read a lot of these “expert” opinions. Smerconish is just a basic statist, Obama bootlicker who can’t admit it when he’s wrong.
