Espousing the talking points of the Democratic Party, MSNBC host Krystal Ball said on Tuesday that Republican lawmakers in the U.S. Senate forcing a showdown over the funding of Obamacare “would sacrifice the lives of young people if it helped them score political points.”
Ball refers to a healthcare plan adopted by the Heritage Foundation some 20 years ago that was embraced by “many conservatives” — a plan that included an individual mandate.
The smarmy co-host of “The Cycle” tells us that 20 Republican senators cosponsored legislation at the time that included an individual mandate, but “suddenly” — two decades later — “conservatives decided they didn’t care so much for this conservative idea once it was introduced by President Obama.”
Talk about taking a leap, and she might as well have finished the underlying thought that it’s due to the color of Obama’s skin. Seriously, the Democratic Party couldn’t find a more effective advocate.
Ball then played a portion of an ad aimed at young people warning them of the intrusion of the federal government into their health care decisions.
Being that it is trendy for women on the left to be vulgar in a crass attempt to make the opposition uncomfortable, Ball proclaimed: “The GOP is saying to young people, ‘We would like to have the government stick an unnecessary transvaginal probe if you want an abortion, but when it comes to health insurance, don’t take any government help.’”
“And if you die an agonizing and unnecessary death, one that could have been prevented by the health insurance reform that bears the president’s name, at least you know your death will not have been in vain,” she continued. “You will have died to serve the noble and patriotic cause of hurting this president and denying him a victory.”
In reality, the Democratic Party should be required to list MSNBC broadcasts as “in-kind contributions.”
