Fiery 'You're Being an Apologist!': Martha Takes On Beckel for Defending ObamaCare
Two new Inspector General reports out today reveal major problems with the ObamaCare verification systems.
Republican Senator Jerry Moran (KS) criticized the White House, saying, “Once again, we are provided further evidence that ObamaCare is not working. In fact, the administration is relying on nothing more than the honor system to run a billion-dollar program.”
On America’s Newsroom, Martha MacCallum engaged in a heated back-and-forth with guest Bob Beckel over the series of mishaps with ObamaCare.
MacCallum cited problems with defense, health care and the IRS as examples where the government has had technological blunders.
Beckel said, “There’s a lot of information going in and a lot of information coming out. For the most part, it works.”
When MacCallum pressed Beckel on where it works, he responded, “It works in the IRS. It works fine.”
“The IRS just told us they can’t keep track of their own emails for God’s sakes,” MacCallum pushed back. “You are being an apologist. Do you hear yourself? You are apologizing – we’re the greatest nation in the world and we’re just supposed to go, ‘Oh, you know, stuff happens.’”
Beckel maintained, “ObamaCare is working just fine.”
