Brazen Wasserman Schultz called out for being flat wrong: ‘That’s OK. That’s not even the point’

Big Dem attack dog Debbie Wasserman Schultz was barking up the wrong tree.

debbiewassermanschultz0724During an appearance this week on a political talk show in Nevada to discuss the court perils facing Obamacare, the Florida congresswoman and chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee cited Nevada’s Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval as being one of the many state leaders who declined to participate in a state-run insurance exchange.

“Just take a state like Nevada, where you have a governor who refused to implement a state exchange and as a result people who get Affordable Care Act health-care plans are getting them on the federal exchange,” Wasserman Schultz told “Ralston Reports” host John Ralston, using the liberals’ term for Obamacare.

The problem was, Nevada under Sandoval did set up a state exchange. Wasserman Schultz simply had no idea what she was talking about.

“Let me just stop you for a second, because you’re misinformed about that,” Ralston said. “Brian Sandoval put in a state exchange. He did, so whoever briefed you on that is wrong. He did put in a state exchange. He was the first Republican governor to do that.”

Caught out blowing hot air, Wasserman Schultz was her usual blithe self.

“OK. That’s not even the point,” she said. “That’s fine. That’s not even the point I’m making.”

The woman who can’t be rattled by reality did have the grace to add, though, “I stand corrected. I’m not from Nevada.”

Of course, Wasserman Schultz is from the Sunshine State, where she makes a habit attacking Florida Gov. Rick Scott – a Republican who really did have the sense to refuse to set up a state exchange.

Did Wasserman Schultz really confuse Nevada with her home state? Or does she just think all Republican governors look alike?

Check out the video here – and note how easy Ralston lets her off.
