Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz got owned during a TV interview for parroting falsehoods about Nevada’s Obamacare state exchange.
In an appearance on Ralston Reports, a Nevada-based political talk show hosted by John Ralston, Schultz discussed the two federal appeals court rulings issued on Tuesday which questioned whether federal subsidies can be doled out to individuals who purchased health insurance on state exchanges.
“Just take a state like Nevada, where you have a governor who refused to implement a state exchange and as a result people who get Affordable Care Act healthcare plans are getting them on the federal exchange,” Wasserman Schultz told Ralston.
Of course Debbie was dead wrong, and Ralston didn’t hesitate to correct the record.
“Let me just stop you for a second, because you’re misinformed about that,” Ralston said. “Brian Sandoval put in a state exchange. He did, so whoever briefed you on that is wrong. He did put in a state exchange. He was the first Republican governor to do that.”
You can see Debbie start to foam at the mouth.
“OK. That’s not even the point I’m making,” she said, adding “I stand corrected. I’m not from Nevada.”
What kind of weak excuse is that?
“I know, that’s why I say, it’s not your fault,” Ralston replied.
