Dylan Ratigan Gets Hosed By Obamacare

During the original healthcare debates back in 2009, several MSNBC pundits had vitriol opinions of the Republican Party and their stances toward Obamacare and heath insurance reform. Well, one of those pundits just lost the insurance he liked.

Former MSNBC host Dylan Ratigan once hopped on the bandwagon of insulting the right for their critiques of Obamacare. On his show Morning Meeting, he said, "I mean, there are people that are actually trying to derail health care in order to take down Obama, even if it means half the country dies." Perhaps Ratigan feels differently now that he lost the insurance plan he liked, and took to Twitter to voice his concern regarding his new premiums. Another supporter of health insurance reform meeting the cruel hand of fate following the law's enactment.






Ratigan isn't the only one who has taken to Twitter to express concern over canceled policies. The liberal daughter of former President Reagan took to the site to express her concerns about the law as well. Patti Davis stated, "Could the president please explain why I and others are losing our health ins. plans? Wasn't supposed to happen!"

Davis of course, is referring to the president's promise: " If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period." Davis must not have spent enough time with her father to realize that government is not the solution to our problems. 

Luckily for Ratigan, Davis and the millions who have lost insurance, Obama did say sorry last night. So, we're cool here right?
