Conservative super-journalist and author of Craptialism: Liberals who make Millions Swiping your Tax Dollars, Jason Mattera has done it again. He seems to be the only journalist willing to ask liberal politicians the real questions that the American voter wants answered. Sadly, time and again these liberals usually choose one of two paths – they either refuse to answer his questions, or they turn tail and run away!
In this edition Democrat Senators Mark Begich of Alaska and Mark Pryor of Arkansas are simply asked about their support for Obamacare.
Senator Pryor chose the path of silent escape when Mattera asked him about his vote for Obamacare. “Why do you think voters should trust you again, seeing that you canceled their health care plans and raised their premiums with your Obamacare vote?” Silence… maybe Pryor will get back to Mattera later?
Begich was a little more talkative.
“Senator Begich … do you remember when you promised that Obamacare would lower premiums by thousands of dollars? What ever happened to that?” the author asked in a second exchange.
“We’re still working on it,” answered the Alaska senator. “I have a ‘Copper Plan.’ You should look at it,” he insisted.
“You’re still working on it?” Mattera asked incredulously.
“Premiums are going up … shouldn’t voters hold you accountable?” continued Mattera.
“You should look at my stuff on it,” Begich responded.
At least Begich didn’t clam up and run away… but his response really isn’t much better than Pryor’s. Obamacare has been law for 4 years, the people of Alaska – who happen to be Begich’s constituents – NEVER wanted Obamacare (and still don’t)… but don’t worry Alaskans, Mark Begich is WORKING ON IT.
It’s patently ridiculous.
Mattera’s response to both Senators is pure gold and 100% accurate.
“For people like Begich and Pryor, they didn’t care about the negative impact Obamacare would have on the American people,” said Mattera. “They were going to ensure their cronies profited handsomely, even if the law has inflicted absolute misery on the rest of us.”
