FBN’s Melissa Francis says she was silenced by CNBC when challenging the ObamaCare math.
Melissa Francis: I was silenced by CNBC
Melissa Francis comments:
Straight from the horse’s mouth. Jonathan Gruber telling you that the architects of Obamacare think you are stupid. And most importantly, they are absolutely *counting on* your lack of economic understanding. But they aren’t the only villains in this story. They are also depending on the liberal media to help them cover up the truth.
So far NBC, ABC, the Los Angeles Times, the Associated Press, and others, have been only too happy to comply. Those outlets have not even mentioned the video evidence from Jonathan Gruber. It’s shocking, but it actually doesn’t surprise me because when I was at CNBC, I pointed out to my viewers that the math of Obamacare simply didn’t work. Not the politics by the way. But just the basic math. And when I did that, I was silenced. I said on the air that you couldn’t add millions of people to the system and force insurance companies to cover their pre-existing conditions without raising the price on everyone else. I pointed out that it couldn’t possibly be true. That if you like your plan you can keep it. That was a lie. And in fact, millions of people had their insurance cancelled.
As a result of what I said at CNBC, I was called into management, where I was told that I was “disrespecting the Office of the President” by telling what turned out to be the absolute truth.
This, FOX Business and FOX News CHannel is the *only network* not complicit in the campaign to keep you in the dark. Don’t trust the other guys. I can tell you first hand, they are willing participants in the campaign to keep the economic truth from you. Don’t let them do it.
