Are you among the 5 to 6 million Americans who lost the health insurance coverage that you had and liked? Well, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry has a message for you, and it’s one that she wants Democrats to run on in 2014: “Yeah, you can’t keep your crappy plans. Just deal with that!”
Harris-Perry, one of the network’s more annoying leftists, made the comments on Sunday, during which she compared the dramatic and consequential changes taking place in the health insurance market to “flipping a house.”
“But try thinking of it this way. It’s kind of like flipping a house. No, I really mean a real house. You do a whole lot of little things. You replace the counter tops, you add crown molding, you refinish the floors,” said Harris-Perry, according to the Media Research Center. “It all adds up to something entirely different than where you started.”
Harris-Perry ripped Republicans, whom she said “will go into a fallen down blighted house, slap on some granite counter tops, while ignoring real problems, and declare their work is the best thing ever.” She praised Democrats and Obamacare’s “more substantial, structural changes,” but criticized the party’s elected officials for not adequately selling the law, which, again, she compared to a flipped house.
