CNN host Chris Cuomo called conservative commentator Mary Katherine Ham, single mother of two children, ‘cheap’ for not liking Obamacare. She started by arguing that liberals are exaggerating about what will happen if you repeal Obamacare.
“That’s part of balancing this whole act and trying to bring down these prices because you, sir, are paying for pediatric dental even if you don’t have children. That is a problem,” she said. This is where Cuomo got rude. “There’s a reason for that” started Cuomo. “Yeah, because liberals love federal power,” Ham immediately shot back.
“Look, you can be cheap about it or you can look at the facts. You make your choice,” said Cuomo. Wow. “You can be nasty about it, or you can listen to me,” said Ham. Awesome! Ham then continued to argue her point.
“One of the ways you can deal with that is by cutting some of these ‘essential health benefits’ because some of them are indeed not essential. And you could give people more flexibility to have slightly less expensive and slightly less comprehensive plans, which is what many young people would like to buy,” said Ham.
