MSNBC: Ratigan with the scumbag Pence from Indiana
Pence stated that there are over 1200 insurance companies in the US.

Anyone have a good source? From Wikipedia I found in the category for health insurance only 40 listed.

Source: New York Times For Many Consumers, Few Insurance Choices

For many Americans, the idea that they have a choice of health plans is about as mythical as unicorns, said Jacob Hacker, professor of political science at Yale University.

4. folks love Ratigan!
I see him as nothing but a corporatist sent from CNBC,
now playing up to anyone who is mad at the government,
included Teabaggers.

Like I saw though John Edwards's con,
like I predicted that McCain would be the GOP nominee,
like I predicted that Obama would be the Dem nominee and win,
Like I predicted the Tea Party, on the day that it was born via
the orchestrated Santelli Rant on CNBC
now I predict that Ratigan ain't nothing but a tool using populism to get folks riled up,
which is why he called Obama, The King issuing a proclaimation
at the very beginning of today's show.

Ratigan is a phony, just like John Edwards was.
And sooner or later, more too will know this.

14. It was Obama, not Dylan Ratigan, who helped pickpocket Americans to pay banks
Edited on Thu Mar-18-10 05:08 PM by brentspeak
trillions of taxpayer dollars:

You were saying something about "corporatist", propagandist?

1) Obama, on the Senate floor, delivering long speech on behalf of passing TARP

2) Senator Barack Obama, on the campaign trail, pledged to telephone wavering House of Representatives members to urge them to support the legislation.



ABC News' Sunlen Miller Reports: Senator Obama, at a rally before almost 15,000 people in Wisconsin, admitted the emergency economic bailout plan wasn't perfect but urged Congress to pass the bill in order to prevent a financial catastrophe.

"I've been reaching out to leaders in both parties to do whatever I can to help pass this plan," Obama said, "I'll be flying back to Washington today to cast my vote to safeguard the American economy."



3) Obama and McCain, during campaign, issue joint statement urging passage of bailout bill

6. Was Dylan swallowing whatever Pence was throwing at him? Did he say he agreeed with
whatever it was Pence was probably pretending to believe in/care about?

8. I don't have to watch it to know.......
it's all a big game to them,
and Ratigan just wants us mad
and wants us voting anti-incumbent in 2010.
That's why he has a show on MSNBC right now;
specially for the 2010 election.

I stopped watching his show because he always does his interviews the same way. Predictably.

11. He didn't challenge Pence on the number of health insurance companies in the US
Pence stated there were over 1200.

13. Pence totally pulled something else out his arse ...
said he "checked right before I came the air, and medicade ended up being SEVEN times as expensive as the CBO sait it would" countering the fact that the CBO said it would cut into the deficit ...

TOTALLY had to take a split second right before he said "seven times" to look up, and literally make that number up ...

These arseholes are SO far gone, they do crape like that all the time, and it never gets called out 99% of the time ...

Let a dem try to pull some crape out his/her rear end like that ...

I do like Ratigan, though ...
