‘Thnx Mr. President': Ex-MSNBC host upset new policy to cost 3.5 times more

Former MSNBC host Dylan Ratigan got a real shocker a few days ago — his beloved catastrophic health insurance policy was cancelled thanks to the Affordable Care Act, and a replacement policy will cost him 3.5 times as much.

On Thursday, the former “The Dylan Ratigan Show” host tweeted this message:

He followed up with this:

Right from the very start, Ratigan recognized that the Affordable Care Act would cause more harm than good. It would decrease our choice of insurers and cleaver our plan options, resulting in rising insurance costs.

Here’s a debate he had on his show with the ever-opinionated U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla. This has to be the only time I ever saw her stammer.

Ratigan’s show became the highest-rated non-primetime show on MDMBC, but in June of 2012, he announced that he would be leaving at the end of his contract in order to, among other things, engage in hydroponic farming.

If I had to work every day with the likes of Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow and Al Sharpton, I’d probably become a farmer too.

    on it to warn anybody cause yall were to busy worshiping obama and the
    idiot administration of his

    Wasserman-Schultz is just trying to lie about what the Obamacare program really is. She is such a loser along with Obama and the entire democrat liberal party.

  • Michael Rhodes Autry

    Oh my, call that whaaaaambulance quick… Ms. Didhe Washherman Scoots is a nutcase

  • Frank Mayo

    well he did give her hell for not answering the question and rightfully so. He is 100% correct the government has taken away consumer base insurance and replaced it with government mandate based insurance. I believe people in this Administration are getting a kickback, or some sort of monetary gain for this so called ACA. Remember 100% Democrat Party approved, and 100% rejected by the Republican Party!

      Welcome to the most corrupt administration in U.S. History.

    • neverbetty

      I wonder if it will ever come out what obama and his crew had on justice Roberts, our turncoat in the supreme court?
      I have to wonder that it may have something to do with the adoption/s.

      • Doug

        My sources say it has something to do with Julia Roberts.

  • davidr58

    Love this guy, he didn’t let Wasserman-Schultz sit there and lie out her ass.

  • Doug

    My sources say his hydroponic farm is actually a front for marijuana planting.

    She really didnt stutter. She was not allowed to answer the question for which she did not have an answer anyway. Dylan was right but he was not expounding this view as he should have been. He shouled have been all over this convincing his fellow democrats that this was a pig in a poke.
