Video clip of the day


How do you know your country's fourth estate is pretty much made of shamelessly boot-licking hacks? When the entity asking the toughest questions regarding the President's signature piece of legislation is Comedy Central. That's how.

Here's Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Jon Stewart's show chatting about ObamaCare.

(video approx. 11 minutes long)

Stewart jumps in immediately and presses Sebelius on why certain businesses will be exempted for one year while individuals will not. Sebelius never answers the question.

Part of her deflection is her contention, which Stewart unfortunately buys into, that ObamaCare created "a marketplace" by which individuals could purchase health insurance. This is patently false. There was nothing before the advent of ObamaCare that was preventing individuals from shopping different individual plans to purchase. Nothing.

And has been demonstrated over and over, the federally-approved individual plans of ObamaCare are decidedly more expensive than comparable plans prior to enactment of the law. Some marketplace, huh?

In the end, Stewart pulls the rug out from under us, as his criticism of ObamaCare is they did not go far enough... yeah, his solid lefty roots exposed as he shills for a single-payer system.

I thought the interview sucked. They bot miss the biggest point of all: they're going bankrupt.
