Stop! Our aching sides really can’t take it! Spelling is hard and so is reality.

As Twitchy reported earlier today, Democrat strategist Donna Brazile tweeted her confusion over the increase in her health care premiums. What could the reason possibly be? After Twitter users gasped for breath, they helpfully attempted to explain reality to Ms. Brazile. However, Ms. Brazile wasn’t content with exposing her idiocy just once: She’s back for more!

https://twitter.com/laurww/status/306868332894760960

To be fair, she’s unintentionally correct with “gauging.” Because, guess what? Gauging the cost of Obamacare is exactly what insurers are doing.

Brazile continued to spin-tweet.

Oh, sweetie. Look in the mirror.

Oh, the old lady parts “pre-existing” nonsense straight from Nancy Pelosi’s unmovable mouth.

Just precious. Twitter users continue to helpfully provide Ms. Brazile with some reality-based lessons. And, of course, well-deserved and delicious mockery.

It is embarrassing. But it sure is entertaining. Keep digging, Donna!

      A Groovy Kind Of DUMB by The Mindbenders (I’ll say….)

      When I’m feelin’ blue, all I have to do
      Is take tweet from you, then I’m not so blue,
      When you’re close to Moochelle, I can feel you’re a deadbeat,
      I can hear you screaming in my ear…
      Wouldn’t you agree, Brazlle seems to be, a groovy kind of dumb.

      Any time you want to, you can turn me off too
      Anything you tweet to, any time at all.
      When I see you lips, oh I start to quiver,
      Can’t control the hurling, from deep inside;
      Wouldn’t you agree, Brazile seems to be, a groovy kind of dumb.

      When I’m hear your yarns, all I have to do,
      Is take a tweet or two, then I’m laughing too,
      When I hear your yarns, you don’t seem to matter,
      O’bamacare will shatter and we don’t care
      Wouldn’t you agree, Brazile seems to be, a Groovy kind of dumb…….

      Wouldn’t you agree. Brazile seems to be, a GROOVY KIND OF DUMB…….

  • peteee363

    so they cannot charge more then 3 times as much. well, this means everybody’s insurance will rise, so the old folks can still pay even more. unelss you do not buy it, because for a youngster, the fine costs less then insurance does.

    • redheadgrl

      You’re right peteee, that’s why the cost of a plan is projected to be 20K for a family. They have to raise the premiums on the “young and healthy” so they can over the “sick and old” with the 3x multiplier. So, EVERYONE’s rates will increase, across the board. And, and the younger, healthier population opts for the fine over the expensive plan, the rates will increase even more for EVERYONE.

      • AMSilver

        Between this, the youth having to pay for social security/medicare, the youth getting ripped off with student loans for degrees that have no route to employment (and the loans cannot be discharged in bankruptcy, and can accrue all sorts of fines/penalties), the massive federal debt that will have to be paid for by future generations, and all the rest of it, it makes sense that democrats are trying to push bills that prevent future purchases of guns and the handing down of guns from parent to child. It keeps those same people our politicians are lining up to enslave from being able to get their hands on the weapons they would need to rise up against this evil government.

    Gauging…def. “A means of estimating or evaluating; a test: a gauge of character.”

  • DwellsInFire

    Well to give her credit, doctors and hospitals have been price gouging for decades by charging orders of magnitude more than their goods and services are worth, causing people financial ruin, to have to fly to other countries for treatment, or to declare bankruptcy. Even Romney said of the miserable system in Massachusetts: “We still don’t know why a surgery costs $50,000 instead of $5000”, but that didn’t stop the libs from copying it because they can’t learn from the past. One would think the entire point of reforming a healthcare system is to put an end to the insane costs, but NO! Obama has no desire to find out why things cost 10 times what they should, but instead only wants to force everybody to pay for it. Wouldn’t it have been great if the govt actually studied the problem and how to solve it rather than cram a rushed bill through? Nah. We’ll just keep paying $2200 for an 80 cent stent, $14,000 a year for a diabetic’s insulin, $40,000 for a vile of anti-venom (that costs $100 in Mexico), $120,000 for hip replacement surgery, or $1,000,000 for some skin grafts, plus an annual increase of several percentage points above the inflation rate to be sure the system implodes one day.

    • NRPax

      The only reason this mythological “Price gouging” has been going on is the sheer number of patients who come through a hospital, demand all kinds of treatment and decide not to pay for it. Then you get the government sponsored programs that decide not to reimburse doctors or hospitals completely.

      The money lost has to come from somewhere and the money-pooping unicorn breeding program hasn’t had any success.

  • redheadgrl

    Bingo, ding,ding,ding, ding! – Donna wins the prize with this tweet:

    Donna Brazile ✔ @donnabrazile

    Under Obamacare, the no insurer can charge mature folks more than 3 times as much as they charge twentysomethings. Again, January 1, 2014.

    That is exactly why costs are increasing as much as they are now – the Ins companies, and pretty much anyone else in healthcare that can, are trying to get ready for this multiplier. Right now, the table is 7:1. It will go to 3:1. So, the sickest, most unhealthy, highest-risk for payout person on the plan can only be charged 3x the most healthy, least likely to need payouts person. So, even though Donna’s care could very well cost 10x more than a 22 year old female, the insurance company can only charge her 3x the 22 yo rate in premiums.

    She’s spouting the truth here, but cannot connect the dots between the cause (ACA) and effect (higher premiums for less coverage). #liberallogic

  • RightThinking1

    On the other hand, she may be pleased that gasoline prices are going up…, I mean according to O., that is a positive economic signal.

    So how ridiculous this all is?

  • Kevin Krom

    Here’s the thing… even if Brazile is right. IT’S STILL A DIRECT RESPONSE TO THE “ACA”. The insurance companies are doing the best they can to get a pricing structure in place that will allow them to offset as much of the burden that will kick in next year as possible.
