RUSH: Donna Brazile tweeted that her insurance premium went up and she doesn’t know why, and I am not kidding. I literally am not kidding. Donna Brazile, a tweet, “What’s on your menu? I just got off the phone with my health care provider asking them to explain why my premium jumped up. No good answer.”
Now, for those of you who do not know who Donna Brazile is (and there may well indeed be many of you who don’t), Donna Brazile is a Democrat campaign specialist. She is one of the ranking unelected Democrats in the country. She ran Algore’s presidential campaign. She was as close to Bill Clinton as you can get without being Monica Lewinsky. I mean, she is a ranking, powerful Democrat. She is constantly on CNN and other networks doing commentary and strategic analysis for the Democrat Party. She actually tweeted, “Just got off the phone with my health care provider asking them to explain why my premium jumped up. No good answer.”
Now, a couple of things stand out. First, is it possible…? I’m just asking. Is it possible she’s not aware of Obamacare? No, it’s not possible. Second, why is she calling her health care provider asking them about her health insurance? She said she called her “health care provider” asking them to explain why her premium jumped up. The “health care provider” is the doctor. What does the doctor have to do with an insurance premium? Now, maybe when she wrote this, by “provider” she means insurance company. I’m sure she does. But stop and think of that!
Here’s this high-ranking Democrat who thinks her “health care provider” is her insurance company. I guess, in one way of looking at it, that may be true. But beyond that, somebody said, “Well, maybe she doesn’t know about Obamacare.” No, no, no, no. She knows everything about Obamacare. The thing that we must ask is: Does she really believe the crap that was said about it? You mean to tell me that Donna Brazile bought the idea that her premium would be reduced $2500 because of Obamacare? You mean to tell me that?
There has to be some explanation for this. It could well be that this is a tweet that’s just designed to stir people up like me. Could be she’s out there playing a game, knowing full well that people like me are going to do what I’m doing right now in reacting to it. Donna, call your insurance company or whoever provides you your insurance, your CNN employment plan, whatever. I don’t know where you get your insurance, but call them. The doctor doesn’t have anything to do with your premium. But actually, Donna, what you ought to do is call the White House and ask to speak to the president and ask him why your premium went up, ’cause he’s the reason.
There’s a piece of legislation out there called Obamacare, and everybody’s premiums, costs, are going up. I can’t believe it. See, for me, this is the dividing line. Does she really think health care is gonna get cheaper because of Obamacare? That’s what these Democrats actually believe? I’ve thought all along they know they’re lying through their teeth to us when they tell us costs are gonna go down. There is one government-provided entitlement that has ever reduced the cost of anything, and that’s all this is: A government entitlement program. There isn’t one government program that’s ever reduced the cost of anything.
Maybe these people are living in their dreamland and actually thought that this was gonna lower their premiums. I’m having a tough time believing that.
