Either the drugs are finally starting to kick in over at Fox News, or host Brian Kilmeade missed a script meeting because yesterday on Fox & Friends, Kilmeade actually defended the Affordable Care Act. Well, at least that was the effect of his criticism of House GOP leadership for pushing forward with the shutdown.
Clearly, Kilmeade at least understands that the polls were showing just how much the Republicans would be blamed for the debacle. When Doocy tried to get around the fact that the Affordable Care Act is the law of the land, passed through every Constitutionally-prescribed method of drafting, debate, voting and passage into law, Kilmeade spoke up.
“You say it’s unpopular and over 50 percent of the country doesn’t seem to want it,” Kilmeade said. “But 8 million more people voted for it because Mitt Romney would have been president.”
That’s a fact that you never hear any right-wing ideologue address, is it? How could so many people supposedly be against the law when Obama won overwhelmingly in the polls, with voters knowing that if they voted for Romney, the law would be repealed? It’s always stunning to see someone on Fox News forget where they are and speak a truth, so take a few minutes and watch Brian Kilmeade actually defend the ACA before they scrub the Internet of all record of this historical moment below.
