Barbara Walters was doing the spin thing after the Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) awful report on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) also known as Obamacare. But then, ESPN’s NBA Countdown host, Sage Steele is right on point with her comment to Ms. Walters saying, “Maybe this is the proof why…this is not the way to do it.”
This health care law started out wrong as a bill that was over 1200 pages long and put up for a vote when no one had time to thoroughly read and research it. I am glad that no Republican in either of the houses of Congress voted for the ACA. That includes the Republican who have the RINO label. Surprisingly, they did not vote for the ACA. Congress during that time had strong to perfect Democratic majorities. The Democrats in both houses overwhelmingly voted for this health care bill without reading and researching it; therefore, the blame starts and ends with them.
Now we are reading about people losing their health care that they were suppose to be able continue with if they desired to do so. These same people are signing up for the ACA’s health care and finding out they cannot afford it. People are finding out that they have to get a separate plan for their babies in their families. There are even more horror stories not mentioned here.
The CBO says the ACA, again also known as Obamacare will have a devastating affect for times to come as stated in the graphic below from rightchange.com.
Elisabeth Hasselbeck is leaving The View to take over one of the host position on Fox and Friends vacated by Gretchen Carlson, who is moving on to her own Fox program in September. Remember back in March, news reports were that Ms. Hasselbeck’s contract was not going to be renewed and Barbara Walters said that was not true? Well either Ms. Walters did not tell the truth or maybe Ms. Hasselbeck did not want to renew her contract and was not ready for the news be public back then.
I started wondering if Elisabeth was not going anywhere, why was she absent from the show as much as Joy Behar. Ms. Behar had officially announced her departure to be at the end of the season. Those two were absent once or twice every week since April. Elisabeth Hasselbeck was the only person on The View panel who identified as conservative. I wander among the 2 replacements, will one of them be a conservative thinker!`
I am seeing a lot of happy reaction to Ms. Hasselbeck leaving The View and joining Fox News on various online news and social websites coming from politically conservative folks. These same folks are also making nasty comments about her View co-hosts. Oh, the nasty name calling! I guess the thinking is that the conservative Ms. Hasselbeck has nothing to do with Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sherri Shepherd and Ms. Walters outside of The View.
I know there are some extreme thinkers of political ideologies that cannot deal with those of differing political views. Ms. Hasselbeck does not fall into that category. She is particularly close to super Obama supporting Sherri Shepherd. People of differing political views can be loving friends. Watch Elisabeth Hasselbeck speak of her View buddies.
