Whoa. We need more of this from CNN’s Jake Tapper.
This was the kind of thing he was doing back when Barack Obama was still President, sadly, he’s now focused his efforts on attacking President Trump. Sometimes the media needs to attack the GOP because Republicans lie too… but it would be nice to see a little more balance from folks like Tapper. This was a good start…
On a recent CNN broadcast Tapper confronted Democrat Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY) with pure, unadulterated truth. The Democrats LIED. And Obamacare is dying because they lied.
Watch the condemnation in all it’s glory:
Tapper: “Congressman Israel, let me ask you. The way that this bill, the original bill, Obamacare, the Affordable Healthcare Act, the way that that was sold to the American people was in many ways mendacious. They [voters] were told if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your plan, you can keep your plan. That’s not true. And it’s just empirically evident out there that insurance companies are leaving Obamacare exchanges, leaving voters, consumers with fewer options, not greater options. Do you think the Democrats, in the way they sold this bill to the public, really undermined their own credibility on the issue of health care?”
Israel: “Well, Jake, look, let’s stipulate that Obamacare is far from perfect, that there were some significant flaws in its execution, including a website that went down.”
Tapper: “I didn’t even remember that one!”
MORE OF THIS, PLEASE!
