  • Schadenfreude: MSNBC Anchor Sees His Health Insurance Premiums Skyrocket Under ObamaCare

    05/05/2014 11:43:03 AM PDT · by Baynative · 61 replies ^ | November 2013 | Brian Carey
    “Thnx Mr. President!” That’s what former MSNBC anchor Dylan Ratigan had to say to President Obama in a tweet earlier today. He was saying it sarcastically. You know, like when you say “thanks a lot!” to someone who bumps into you in the hallway, causing you to spill your coffee all over your clothes. But Mr. Ratigan experienced something far worse than a coffee spill. His health insurance premiums are skyrocketing thanks to the hilariously named Affordable Care Act. What happened? Well, for starters, Ratigan had catastrophic health insurance coverage. That means that he sees himself as pretty healthy and...
  • Former MSNBC Host Loses Catostrophic Insurance, Is Baffled

    Former MSNBC host Dylan Ratigan recently got a rude awakening about Obamacare when he received a cancellation notice in the mail for his catastrophic insurance policy. I bought a catastrophic health policy for $170/mo when I left MSNBC. Obamacare cancelled the policy. New rate $600/mo. Thnx Mr. President! — Dylan Ratigan (@DylanRatigan) November 8, 2013 Interesting discussion...many seem to think paying a high deductible in exchange for low cost catastrophic should be outlawed? I disagree. — Dylan Ratigan (@DylanRatigan) November 8, 2013 Serious you guys think simple catastrophic coverage should be outlawed? If so, why? — Dylan Ratigan...

    Big Journalism has learned that the Occupy Washington DC movement is working with well-known media members to craft its demands and messaging while these media members report on the movement. Someone has made the emails from the Occupy D.C. email distro public and searchable. The names in the list are a veritable who’s who in media. Journolist 2.0 includes well known names such as MSNBC’s Dylan Ratigan, Rolling Stone’s Matt Tiabbi who both are actively participating; involvement from other listers such as Bill Moyers and Glenn Greenwald plus well-known radicals like Noam Chomsky, remains unclear.

    Discussing violent revolution as if it’s just another policy optionMSNBC host Dylan Ratigan not only decided it was a good idea to have on far-left cartoonist Ted Rall to discuss his new book The Anti-American Manifesto, which calls for the left to consider violent revolution if its aims aren’t met, but Ratigan overtly endorsed revolution and implicitly endorsed considering violence. If this were on Fox News, the media would be blowing a fuse. It better get working on this one. If it’s suspension-worthy for an obiously left-wing host to give campaign donations to politicians, what is it when one quasi-endorses...

    MSNBC's Dylan Ratigan appeared on Morning Joe, Wednesday, to dismiss Barack Obama as a "little boy" in the eyes of Wall Street and to assert the President "just bends over," rather than stand up to the financial industry. [Audio available here.] The charged language surprised host Joe Scarborough who sputtered, "You know, I was so uncomfortable with a couple of the things you said and then the exclamation point at the end." Speaking of financial reform, Ratigan attacked, "...When the Wall Street guys got across the table from him and said 'Oh you going to change our tax code little...

    MSNBC's Dylan Ratigan on Wednesday became the latest host at that channel to lash out at Fox News. He frothed that Glenn Beck is a "scumbag" for touting the company Goldline. Ratigan promoted an investigation by Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner of the business. He hyperbolically attacked, "The only problem here is that Glenn Beck and Goldline are largely snake oil salesmen and scumbags, trying to create money for themselves at the expense of everybody in this country." [Audio available here.]Ratigan's over-the-top language continued as he ranted, "That man there [Beck] is paid by that other company to be a snake...

    This is from the Dylan Ratigan show. Your typical MSNBC “news” anchor who does nothing but spew his beliefs. This guy is not on at 8:00 when the other editorial shows are on, his show starts at 4 o’clock right when all the other stations have actual news on. Ratigan, who used to be a somewhat decent business journalist for CNBC where he co-anchored Closing Bell, and hosted the show Fast Money. He has recently been adopted by the goons over at MSNBC, and he might be the least funny, least educated, and least tolerable out of all of them....

    As a black proud Tea Party patriot, I am extremely offended by MSNBC TV show host Dylan Ratigan's baseless accusation that the Tea Party Movement (my white brother and sister fellow patriots) embraces Nazis and racists. Ratigan's attack epitomizes the liberal media's commitment to protect Obama and his radical agenda at all costs. They have a genuine disdain for freedom, capitalism and We The People. No tactic is too low. Ratigan's rant:While interviewing (really badgering) Mark Williams of the Tea Party Express, outrageously Ratigan attempted to portray the bus tour as a far right hate group supportive of the killing...

    Here is video of MSNBC's Dylan Ratigan saying a "Blue State is on Deep Red Alert" tonight! Ratigan said Massachusetts is on the verge of electing a Republican to the U.S. Senate for the first time in 31 years. Ratigan talked to Democrat Niki Tsongas and could not get her to admit that the mere fact Scott Brown is close - and very well may win - is astounding in the state of Massachusetts. Ratigan obviously believes it is amazing. . . . . (VIDEO)

    Dylan Ratigan: Goldman Sachs magic trick - 10/16/09 How did Goldman, Sachs & Co. -- saved a year ago by the US taxpayer -- magically make $3 billion in 3 months a year later? This as the US dollar collapses, unemployment soars and foreclosures hit a record? Here is the Goldman, Sachs & Co. revenue break down for the past 3 months: Financial Advisory-M/A: 325 million. Equity Underwriting: 363 million. Debt Underwriting: 211 million. Trading-Principal Investments: 10 billion. Notice that 10 billion is much bigger than two or three hundred million made from the traditional Wall Street businesses. That $10...

    Once upon a time, there was Dylan Ratigan, host of CNBC's "Fast Money," and co-host of that network's "Closing Bell." He was never partisan and willing to criticize both political parties in Washington, D.C. Now he seems to think Bristol Palin has taken Karl Rove's job as the sinister mastermind of Republican politics. --more with video--

    Ratigan had a great suggestion for a housing tax credit: Provide every active member of the United States military with a $50,000 transferable homebuyer tax credit. If they don't want to buy a home, they can sell the credit to someone who does and keep the cash. The idea behind this plan is that the effort to prop up the housing market would benefit people in the armed forces -- not people who lied on mortgage applications and bought homes they couldn't afford. It's a hard idea to argue with. Watch the video below for more. video 7:47

    Dylan Ratigan, the longtime host of the CNBC program “Fast Money,” abruptly left the cable channel and the show on Friday, after a discussion with the network’s president, Mark Hoffman. The move came after contract negotiations between CNBC and Mr. Ratigan ended with just a week left until the end of his current deal. Asked why he would walk away from a successful program where he had built a reputation for fast and funny delivery of the day’s financial news, Mr. Ratigan said, “I had the benefit of my contract coming to an end. This is an opportunity to take...
