Wow, what a night for New Jersey Democrat Frank Pallone. He’s too obnoxious to realize he got his ass whipped nine ways to Sunday by Megyn Kelly, and even CNN’s low-rated moron Piers Morgan lashed into him. The strategy of Democrats now appears to be repeatedly calling people’s insurance policies “scams” all while promoting a massive scam.
Memo to Democrats: Keep sending this guy out to do your bidding.
“When the president repeatedly stood up and told the American people, if you want to keep your doctor or your plan, you can do that, with no qualifications to it, none of this, ‘If it’s not quite good enough and it gets changed,’ but just boldly telling people, if you want to keep your doctor or your plan you can,” Morgan said. “That was just a lie, wasn’t it? A complete and utter falsehood.”
Pallone (D., N.J.) said “of course” Americans could keep their plans under Obamacare while fellow guest Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R., Tenn.) muttered, “No, they can’t” on the other screen. Pallone went on to say most people would be able to retain their coverage policies in the individual market if their companies continued to sell them.
Morgan cut in again, demanding to know why Obama didn’t modify his initial promises that way.
“So why didn’t the president just say that?” Morgan asked. “Why didn’t he just say rather than making this bold promise to sell his plan, why didn’t he just be honest?”
Pallone responded, “We have to look at this from a practical point of view,” drawing more derision from Morgan.
“What about telling the truth? What about telling the American people the truth?” he asked.
