Michael Steele. I mean, what the ****?
Geraldo: 96% of all legal residents under the age of 65 will be covered under this bill - that is compared to the 83% that we have right now. About one third of the remaining 18 million people under the age of 65 who are left uninsured would be the illegal aliens.

Michael Steele: So what about the other 4%? Why can't we cover them?

Geraldo: I would assume that those are the illegals, you know, the people you tried so hard to see would not be covered, chairman.

Steele: Well, yeah, I mean, you know, they're here illegally. Ha, ha, ha, ha.

4. It's a truly grim situation, Clio
All I have is CNN and Fox, but we have CNN Europe....which shows us business news from Hong Kong most of the time. :shrug:

So, when important stuff is happening I have to watch Fox on my TV and CNN Live on my interweb.

I fear I may turn in to a:

10. Well, I'm holding you personally responsible....
.... for informing all of Western Europe (plus that island thingy you live on) that MOST of us are not like that bunch on Fox.

No wonder the rest of the world hates us. lol ..... They probably just gave Obama the Peace Price because they think he's the only sane person here.

Really. I just love Michael Steele. Best thing to happen to Democrats since President Obama.

And remember: for the record, he loves puppies.

3. Please tell me he is not that stupid.
When Geraldo of all people looks like freaking genius in comparison you know you are dumb as a doorknob.

9. I told you all he was stupid
over and over again. And the only reason Ehrlich picked him was so people would think the republicans were FAIR AND BALANCED.

15. Geraldo is also contradicting himself here...
Geraldo: 96% of all LEGAL residents under the age of 65 will be covered

Steele: What about the other 4%?

Geraldo: They are ILLEGAL...

Not to defend Steele or anything, because he is dumb as a fucking post.

18. What is the 4% too much or too little? Where is the contradiction.
65 and over people are covered by medicare so they don't count in the math at all.

22. He's saying 96% of LEGAL residents will be covered
Steele says what about the other 4%?

Geraldo says then that they are illegal when initially he was talking about 96% of all LEGAL residents not 96% of all residents.
