Have to wait until March 31st
ABC’s This Week w/ George Stephanopoulos was the only Sunday show that bothered to cover the latest ObamaCare delay and with it came some interesting insight from the panel of political experts.
Appearing on Sunday’s program, Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan mocked the latest delay and hilariously asked her fellow panelists if “there still a law? Is there still an ObamaCare law? It’s been changed in 25 ways.”
Other than Congressman Joaquin Castro (D-TX), the entire This Week panel accepted the disaster that ObamaCare has become with ABC’s Jeff Zeleny admitting that the delay is “an acknowledgement that some Democrats are in huge trouble in Senate races and they are really hoping for some relief.”
Noonan continued her takedown of ObamaCare and pointed out how “It’s also an acknowledgment that this whole thing didn’t work from the day the website was unveiled. I really think ObamaCare as a domestic public policy event is even huger than all of us think. It’s a day-to-day story, and so you know the latest story and it is what it is. But this is a most extraordinary failure by an administration that put all of its chips on it working. And it is not.”
Even CNN’s Ana Navarro, who although she claims to be a conservative frequently spends her time criticizing her own party, mocked the latest delay and claimed that, “About this last announcement about this new delay is that I think there’s almost a numbing to all these delays and exceptions.”
Not only was ABC the only one of the big three networks that covered the most recent ObamaCare delay on Sunday, but when was the last time you saw an entire panel, sans a Democratic politician, on ABC, CBS or NBC agree that ObamaCare has been an unmitigated disaster? Kudos to ABC and its panelists for having an important conversation on ObamaCare that NBC and CBS didn’t find the time to mention.
