MSNBC's Harris-Perry Mocks People Who Lost Insurance: Suggests Dems Say 'Just Deal With That'
Newsbusters.org ^ | April 20, 2014 | Brad Wilmouth

Posted on 04/20/2014 5:52:08 PM PDT by Kaslin

On the Sunday, April 20, Melissa Harris-Perry show on MSNBC, as host Harris-Perry chastised Democrats for not bragging about ObamaCare for the year's midterm elections, she at one point mocked Americans angry about having their health insurance plans cancelled, which she referred to as "crappy plans," as she lamented that Democrats are not boasting about ObamaCare or declaring, "Yeah, you can't keep your crappy plans. Just deal with that!"

Her mockery of the ObamaCare-induced insurance cancellations came as she compared Republicans to people who flip houses and brag about doing only a little work, as she characterized Democrats, by contrast, as people who do substantial work on houses but fail to boast about it adequately to potential buyers.

I’d like to see Melissa Harris-Perry pass a series of insurance exams and get a the full gambit of licenses and be in the biz for a few years before she can comment on what a “crappy” plan is. The unmitigated Gaul of these people who read the DNC talking points and know Zero, Zip, Nada, about darn near every industry they opine about, and stand in judgement as to what is better for us little people. Plutocrats with a a Superiority Complex and Statist to boot...

I wonder what she will say when her “crappy plan” gets canceled because ‘obamacare is better?’

I was in intensive care for a week, then in the hospital for an additional three days. The hospital bill was $33,000 and I paid $0. That is the crappy plan I lost, Bitch.

Perry...Oh, Beck’s pal?

Beck added that those who criticized Perry are worse than the MSNBC host herself.

“I fear this time, our side sees blood in the water and is going after her and MSNBC,” he said. “It’s more than wrong than anything she said here, especially since their intent is to hurt and destroy, and hers was not.”

This dumb butt is in effect a self-indentured servant to Ohomo and the rat party - totally conditioned to say “Yassuh” no matter what. Sad when the opportunity to be a free thinking American is there for the taking.

She will never admit it, she will blame the insurance company if that happens.

Sure, another let-them-eat-cake moment like when the "if you like your doctor/plan" lie was busted will really help the Dems. (Wow; maybe MHP is really a conservative trying to get Dems to shoot themselves in the foot, eh? </sarcasm>)

What an idiot! Even Obama changed his mind and said “You can keep your crappy plans.”

Unfortunately, she’s not wrong about democrat voters. Democrat voters who lost their insurance will still vote for democrats.

[”Yeah, you can't keep your crappy plans. Just deal with that!”]

What's going to be harder to deal with are the even “crappier” ObamaCare plans. Even if a family or individual gets a 100 percent subsidized policy they still face a deductible of $6,000 or $8,000 and the search for a doctor or clinic that will deal with them. I hope the ACA contains some subsidies for local emergency rooms because that's where many ObamaCare clients will go.

If I owned a small house, nothing fancy, but something that I could afford and I was happy with. But then the government came by and declared that my little house was substandard, 'crappy' if you will, and proceeded to kick me out and buy a larger, more expensive house - a house approed by the government, maybe a house that I couldn't afford. I guess this elitist, Democrat-talking-point-moron would be all in favor of that.

If Bammy is smart (rolls eyes) he will make a special effort to reel in these people and tell them to stop making inflammatory statements.

Of course, as someone stated upthread...she doesn’t have much of an audience.

And Bammy Eat your Peas ain’t too smart, either.

“MHP, you ignorant slut!”

Hardcore leftists like this one see the people (other than their own) who already had insurance as oppressors, and when someone loses their insurance, they see it as “social justice.”

Nothing more that a class-warfare whore.

She’s a good example of why there should be a la carte pay TV. Then she’d better hope her two loyal viewers are rich idiots.

Unfortunately the a la carte issue is on the back burner for now and looks like it will stay there for a while.

Harris-Perry was associate professor at the Center for African American Studies at Princeton University and left in 2011 after being denied a full professorship because of “questions about her work and an assessment of where she is” in her career, according to the Center’s director at the time,

Every time I see Melissa I want to punch her in the face..she needs a good ass kicking, maybe it might put some sense into that head of her..but Im afraid that Communism is so embedded into her there is really no hope.
Yeah Im hoping we have a better year next year, get a good draft pick, make some much needed trades..Mavs COULD have won today but too many jump shots, went away from what worked
