CBS Anchors Bamboozled by Obamacare Rate Hikes

(Before It's News)

Have a look at the CBS This Morning anchors, totally mystified about why Obamacare premiums are rising. I mean, do they administer IQ tests to these people before they put them on TV?

Listen to Norah O’Donnell – “The premiums are skyrocketing!

She sounds like she just found out Martians had landed and opened up a chain of delicatessens.

OMG! Like, WTF?? What in the world is going on here #Obamacareissoooconfusing

Charlie Rose also is flummoxed, stuck in airhead mode. Acting like another blow-dried anchor, to the extent he still has hair. I thought he was supposed to be smart. Maybe not without a list of questions in front of him.

If they’d bothered to pick up a newspaper, they’d discover the well-known fact that premiums are skyrocketing because too many sick people are signing up and healthy people, particularly young adults, are just paying the fine instead of buying insurance. And so insurers are stuck paying for older, sicker patients and are losing money.

It’s called, like economics, dude.

Meantime, these two on CNN share the frustration of their colleagues on CBS but get the problem and have an idea of how to be helpful to Democrats: Punish people who don’t sign up even more. With their salaries, won’t be a problem for them.
