is blaming Fox News for 2/3 of the country disliking Obamacare. Here's Neal Cavuto's explanation and it is
great. If you don't understand what is bad about ObamaCare please read his comments and you will
President, Fox News isn't what's making
Americans sick about your healthcare
law. Your healthcare law is.
Welcome, everybody, I'm Neil Cavuto. And excuse this departure from
form. But I think this is just poor form. So, it's time we set some things
Mr. President, we at Fox News are not the
problem. I hate to break it to you, sir. You are.
Your words are. Your promises are. We didn't sell this
healthcare law. Sir, you
did. Remember this?
President Barack Obama: If you like your doctor, you will
be able to keep your doctor. Period.
Mr. President, tell
that to tens of thousands of retirees at
IBM and Time Warner and dozens of others, who've been dumped from their coverage and
told to find their own coverage. Fox News didn't break that news
to them, Mr. President. Their companies did.
didn't push more of those firms to hire part-time workers. Your
healthcare law did. Fox News
didn't incentivize fast food restaurants
to scale back their benefits. Your healthcare law did.
News didn't make doctors want to opt out. Your healthcare law did. Fox News didn't make
insurance premiums sky rocket. Your healthcare law did.
like Fox News didn't grant hundreds of exemptions to companies that needed
them. You did.
Fox News didn't delay one key provision after another, including
online enrollment for those small
business exchanges. You did.
Just like it wasn't Fox News
that said we had to pass this to see what was in this. You
did. Or was that Nancy Pelosi? Sometimes I'm confused.
But of this I am not.
News didn't re-do basic math. Sir, you did.
News didn't say you can cover 30 million more Americans and not see a
hit in premiums. You did.
News didn't say you could throw in those with pre-existing conditions and not have to pay
for it. You did.
News didn't all but say you could get something for nothing. You
News didn't come back years later and say, oh yea, we did raise some
taxes. You did.
where you are right about Fox News, however, Mr. President. We
can do math. And did. You cannot. And did not.
said it, and proved it. You didn't. And we're all
suffering for it. Take it from the numbers guy at Fox.
Numbers don't lie.
number of Americans working part-time and nervous. The number of
retirees days away from being dumped on
exchanges and anxious.
number of company bosses with any news to pass along on those
exchanges, but still clueless.
number of doctors who want out.
number of congressmen now opting out.
No, Mr. President, none of those numbers lie.
all due respect sir, I can only conclude you do know; I know, I know
you hate us at Fox.
please take a look in a mirror, and fast.
think we're the skunk at your picnic. But that doesn't mean
we're the ones that stink.
that smell isn't coming from the folks reporting on your law.
Mr. President, that smell is your law.
