In celebrating the US of A, there are two things on every American mind: what to barbecue and how to deal with that conservative brother-in-law who annoyingly rains on the parade by talking bad about ObamaCare. Lucky for us, on the eve of the Fourth of July, Ed Schultz was here to help with recipes for handling both.
Donning an apron and chef’s hat, spatula in hand, Schultz helpfully walked us through the “absolutely outstanding” recipe for Cherry Cola Glazed Ribs. (You’ll have to test that out for yourselves. As someone who doesn’t eat ribs, I found myself fixated on the, er, festive getup.)
Then came the second (more important) recipe, for the dealing with the inevitable family member who doesn’t have their “head screwed on right.” He or she will decry the Affordable Care Act, deeming it socialism. That “conversation won’t ruin the ribs,” but nonetheless Schultz provided “Top Five Benefits of the Affordable Care Act” to aid us all through the difficult situation.
1. Coverage regardless of pre-existing conditions
2. Can’t drop coverage when you get sick
3. No lifetime cap on coverage
4. Stay on parents’ plan until 26
5. Rebate if your insurance company doesn’t spend at least 80 percent of its premiums on actual care
Schultz spent the rest of the segment discussing the issue with Karen Finney, chef’s garb intact. God Bless America, indeed.
