Snort: Donna Brazile says Rush Limbaugh is scared to discuss ‘the facts’ of O-care

This is just. Too. Good. After failing to tie her rising health insurance premiums to Obamacare (derp) and then blaming the escalating costs on “price gauging” (double derp), Brazile is going for the trifecta. This afternoon, she suggested that “poor Rush Limbaugh” give her a call so she can school him on “the facts” about Obamacare.

As Captain Picard would say, make it so.

Oh, Donna … bless your heart.

    sorry donna, he only has asshats on by mistake, i am positive he won’t mistake you for an intelligent liberal.

  • ceemack

    I don’t think I’d go to Donna Brazile for the “facts” on Obamacare any more than I’d go Joe Biden for advice on home-defense tactics.

    Or Barack Obama for barbecue recipes.

    Has Donna figured out the difference between her healthcare provider and her insurance company yet? She needs to sort that out to get to the bottom of this price “gauging” problem.

  • Jack Deth

    Really?

    You want to get into that verbal gunfight?!!!

    Limbaugh has been discussing the fallacies of Obama care since it was first trotted out as “Hillary Care”!

  • independentjones

    One could almost accuse Brazile of being intentionally intellectually dishonest.

    Of course, that premise would first require her to have an intellect.

    • 1SkepticalChick

      No intellect required. She has that Liberal Brain Exemption thingie.

    It could go on forever, but he can start with Donna Brazile, Maxine Waters & Sheila Jackson-Lee.

      You could add Hank Johnson to that list, but it might capsize.

    Promise: If you like your current health care coverage, you can keep it.

    Promise: Obamacare will lower premiums.

    Promise: ObamaCare actually will strengthen the private market by opening it up to millions of new consumers who must buy insurance or face a penalty, or join a government-run “pool.”

    Promise: ObamaCare will make Medicare more financially sound.

    Promise: ObamaCare won’t cut Medicare benefits.

    Promise: Much of the cost to fund ObamaCare comes from money already appropriated. It doesn’t add any new spending.

    Promise: ObamaCare penalties do not cover illegal aliens!

    Promise: Federal tax dollars will not pay for abortions under ObamaCare. Obama, himself, signed an executive order prohibiting such use of federal expenditures.

    Promise: ObamaCare will cost less than one trillion dollars over ten years.

    Hey Donna, if you think Rush (of all people) would run from a debate such as this one then perhaps you’re really as dumb as all the hype, lol.

  • Miss Clairee

    Since Obamacare inception, many senior’s eye exam/eyeglasses deductibles have increased from $0.00 annually to over $200-$300 annually. Donna Brazile – you have no excuse for not getting an annual eye exam. You have made it clear that you HAVE insurance, although you complain your premiums have increased. My question to you is this: Why have you not used your insurance to get an eye exam recently. Cause Donna honey, your hair is purple. You need some glasses, Sweets! Hmmmmm. No good answers.

  • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

    This needs to happen because it will get low info people to finally hear what O-care is all about, expose quacks like Brazile, and maybe even convert some into Rush fans.

    Oh but she will use that ultimate weapon of liberal rhetoric: tilt her head and raise her eyebrows as she speaks softly on how “compassionate” the program is. Oh, Rush is on the radio? You don’t say! lol

  • lillymckim

    Bless your heart Donna. Does Rush have your number? If not Rush advertises his phone number everyday on the radio yes 5 days a week 3 hours a day.
    I’m sure Bo Snerdly would put “you” right thru
    I wouldn’t call that scared to talk.

    That way he can share with his millions of listeners…

          What reality? The increased cost of individual, private insurance rates? The looming shortage of general practitioners that will be unable to meet rising demand? The loss of certain policies (Medicare/Medicaid combos and SCHIP) that will lead to poorer quality service through medicaid alone? The increased taxes? The mandates that will primarily harm low wage, unskilled workers?

          Pray tell, which “reality” are you referencing? May I safely assume that you’ve never perused the economic outlooks that are put forth by our own CBO, BLS, and OMB departments?

          • salvagesalvage

            It’s so weird the way EVERY Western nation has managed universal health care that works yet America cannot? Why is that?

          • NRPax

            And yet the people in those Western nations keep flying here for surgeries and procedures that they can’t get in their own countries.

          • salvagesalvage

            Yeah, that’s not the issue. The issue is that people who live in America? Some can’t afford their health care. Now I know that’s not you so you don’t give a shit because all that matters is you and your own but weirdly other people do care. They see it as a problem. So one solution, one that works EVERYWHERE is a universal one payer system that is funded via tax dollars. See what makes American health care so pricey is that insurance companies like to make money. Which is fine but since everyone gets sick and everyone needs health care making it strictly free market is detrimental.

            No one is saying that America does not have a fantastic health care system that rich people all around the world take advantage of, what they are saying is that Americans cannot take advanatge of it unless they have a lot of money.

            Even the insured ones have problems because the companies providing the insurance like to make money and you don’t make money by paying out. So they look for every way to avoid paying out which leads to people dying.

            Again, I understand, that’s not you so you don’t care but other people do.

            You probably scream “Marxist!” at them for doing so.

          • Cambria

            Hey check this out. It’s called conservative logic, okay? I have health issues, including heart problems. I couldn’t afford insurance for a very long time. But I never blamed anyone else or cried to politicians about it. I understand why my health insurance costs more than it does for a healthy person. Nothing unfair about it. It’s like expecting the same car insurance premiums for a Viper vs a Kia Rio. Doesn’t make sense, right? I don’t expect the government to hold my hand and coddle to me.

          • salvagesalvage

            Well no, that’s wingnut logic and that’s not logical at all. Actual conservatives would understand that a universal health care program is good business because a healthy population is a productive one.

            Check out the conservative governments of Israel, Japan, Russia, the Uk and others, see how they’re not making any effort to dismantle their systems? Even Margaret Thatcher left the NHS alone. Let me guess, she was a liberal that hated the free market!

            Your health care costs should not cost you more than anyone else. You should be getting the exact same care as Donald Trump. That creates an equal playing field so you can go out, pursue happiness and make money.

            Instead you think it’s “conservative” to keel over and die some 20 to 40 years earlier then you need to? No, that is wingnut thinking right there.

    The next time you have a question about Obama or his policies, call Rush. If you can’t reach him, you’ll probably get a better and quicker answer from the call screener than whomever put the idea in your head it’s the insurance company’s fault.

  • SJ’s Dad

    Rush has like, what, 15M listeners, while Ms. Brazile has 3?
    (No no, not million, just . . . 3 . . . viewers!-)
    Obvious/shameless ratings ploy.

  • http://twitter.com/InformedNow InformNow

    How can Donna Brazile know about Obamacare. The bureaucrats are still filling in the framework of the law with regulations and more taxes. Still wonder why your health insurance bill went up Donna? Maybe YOU ought to listen to Rush to learn about the bill/law that I seriously doubt you read!

  • DwellsInFire

    Nothing more needs to be said about Obamacare than that in the video below:

  • http://navalwarfare.blogspot.com/ Libertyship46

    And this is just the beginning, Donna. Wait until the costs for Obamacare skyrocket, just like Medicaid and Medicare. We will certainly go broke by 2016 trying to fund this mess, which should please Obama. He will have destroyed our health care system in only two terms. Not bad for a liberal socialist. But the real goal for miscreants like Obama and Brazile is single-payer socialized medicine, just like they have in Britain. That is the Holy Grail for all liberals and, at this rate, that may be the only option left by 2016. I’m sure they’ll be very happy with it, even though we are not.

  • sharinite

    Besides Donna…the only other person that does not know nor cares to know is the President himself…he doesn’t govern…he has czars and minions for that…he is having too much fun in campaign of lies! There, I used the correct word to describe his words!!!

  • Stan

    The only “facts” this woman spews are the “facts” the WH sends to her desk. Rush Limbaugh would have her crying when she left.

  • notenoughtime

    My advice to Brazile is be careful what you wish for. As a small business owner, our conversation on Obamacare will be factual and truthful and much needed if she plans to be able to discuss the subject. Obviously, what she has been reading is far off the mark, as usual. Good luck debating Rush! My money is on Rush.
