So you turn on the tv this morning

And you get nothing on the cable channels except the house committee questioning HHS Secretary Sebelius regarding the flaws in the Obamacare website. I mean even Al Jazeera is broadcasting this farce.

The Republicans are using this hearing to expound on their dislike of the program, reading letters from their constituents complaining of cancellation letters from their insurance companies. Come on people, the law tells the insurance companies they can no longer sell you the junk policies they sold you in the past that offered little or no benefits.

From our who woulda thunk department comes the revelation that Greta Van Susteren of Fox News(?) just debunked a story reported on CBS of a Florida woman who had her policy cancelled and now has to pay 10 times as much. That is how CBS reported the story.

Van Susteren dug deeper and found the woman’s policy did not cover hospital stays and required extensive copays for Doctor visits and prescription purchases.  She also found there are at least 10 plans available that would be less expensive than that quoted on CBS.

Let’s call out CBS for their junk reporting and when we finish that lets call out the Republicans in congress for continuing to waste our time and money with these senseless hearings.

  1. thanks for the link 🙂 If only more people got the obvious, but they don’t. In a year this will all be forgotten and red states will be passing Medicaid expansion and setting up exchanges or face defeat at the polls.
