Dana Loesch Steamrolls The Ed Show With Her Sweet Little Obamacare Lies

Dana Loesch refuses to answer a single question about the ACA in what's got to be the most pointless segment in Ed Show history.

It's very difficult to present both sides of an issue when one of those sides is composed entirely of misinformation and blatant lies. The Ed Show attempted such a feat with disastrous results. Delusional talking points can't replace reality, period.

Dana Loesch, author of "Hands Off My Gun" begins by trying to discredit Ed by using the phrase, "those are White House Numbers." As if these were different than the CBO numbers he was talking about, then she tries to play the "my friends and family are all losing their healthcare" game and has not one official fact she can cite.

She dodges the question, 'are there fewer insured than there were one year ago before the implementation of Obamacare?' Instead of answering the questions, she brings up the Politifact lie of the year, "If you like your doctor, you can keep him" in a sad attempt to distract Ed from the question, 'do fewer people have insurance now than one year ago.' Still, she fails to answer the simple question, are there fewer uninsured than one year ago?

It's a simple question to answer, unless you refuse to acknowledge the fact that over 10,000,000 Americans finally have health care and you don't like that because it signals that this black "lawless" president has a few successes he can flaunt. We all must pretend, a la Dana, that all is a mess, just like her tenuous grasp on reality. She'll try to swoon the guys with her minimal knowledge of football and follow that with lies like, 'there have been nine different plans presented in the House. ' So what does Dana agree with, aside from the CBO, which she condescendingly says they just "score what you give them."

The reason the smug Loesch can't come to grips with any success about the Affordable Care Act is she has no proof, no data, no irrefutable evidence that this has not worked. She will not answer and when called on it, she accuses Ed Schultz of "moving the goal posts." If it's a job killer, why did we have 55 months of private sector growth? She can't tell us that, she's letting Ed know he's lucky to have someone of her calibre on his show.

I honestly can't get through this awful fiction-festival any more. I'm disgusted these morons get to be in charge of 70% of the state legislatures, a majority in the House AND Senate. Her interview just depicts how intellectually and factually bankrupt this party is. Poor Krystal Ball and Jason Hebert had to combat her fictitious bullshit and refute claims of fantastical origins. The Republicans can't tell us what we're going to keep on Obamacare, just what's going to be cut. There was at least five minutes of her pointless obstruction and it let's us know there is no reasoning with people living in Crazytown, Fantasyland, USA.

I love how these Republicans only know friends who have lost healthcare, but won't present one single person to prove these cases true. I commend anyone who could get through that whole clip without dropping at least 10 IQ points.
