Fox Business Network anchor Melissa Francis said she “was silenced” from criticizing the Affordable Care Act while working at CNBC, and was told by management that she was “disrespecting the office of the president.”
While discussing Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber’s comments about the Obama administration taking advantage of “the stupidity of American voter” to pass the healthcare law, Francis said the liberal media are also villains here.
Calling out NBC, ABC, the Los Angeles Times and The Associated Press, who “have only been too happy to comply” in helping “cover up the truth,” Francis pointed to her own experiences at CNBC.
“It’s shocking, but it actually doesn’t surprise me because when I was at CNBC, I pointed out to my viewers that the math of Obamacare simply didn’t work,” she said. “Not the politics, by the way. But just the basic math. And when I did that, I was silenced.”
“I said on the air that you couldn’t add millions of people to the system and force insurance companies to cover their pre-existing conditions without raising the price on everyone else,” she added. “I pointed out that it couldn’t possibly be true that if you like your plan, you can keep it.”
Francis told viewers not to trust the other networks.
“I can tell you first hand, they are willing participants in the campaign to keep the economic truth from you,” Francis added. “Don’t let them do it.”
