ENTIRE VIDEO: Pres. Clinton explains Obamacare. Plus major new study: "Lower than expected" premiums

debunking myths smaller

Yesterday I got very angry at MSNBC and posted this: Dear TV "news": If you hype Bill Clinton's "important" speech on Obamacare, then air it. CNN didn't carry the event at all, and MSNBC talked it up for days only to cut away after about two minutes. Don't even get me started on Fox.

Since TV "news" shows failed to follow through on all their countdowny, breathless promotion of the speech, allow TPC to provide the entire video:

Bill Clinton:

“I have agreed to give this talk today because I am still amazed at how much misunderstanding there is about the current system of health care, how it works, how it compares with what other people in other countries pay for health care.”

Let the debunking continue. Per the Hill, the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation put together data from the Affordable Care Act's marketplaces in the 17 states where it is fully available. Guess what?

A leading health policy research organization reported "lower than expected" premiums for ObamaCare's new insurance exchanges in a major study released Thursday.

Well damn, now Republicans are going to have to concoct all new talking points. Quel drag.

And per Think Progress:

Many Americans will pay even less than the top-line rates after factoring in government subsidies for their health coverage, with some paying nothing at all for crucial medical coverage.

But facts like those likely won't stop the GOP obstructionists and their do-nothing House majority from trying to repeal the plan for the 41st time.

    Thanks GL for taking the time to put this together. MSNBC seems to have panicked about the ratings, and they're making too many bad decisions. I turned to C-SPAN for the Senate hearings on Syria. (Also known as McCain's poker game.) Might've been a tv-watching game changer.
