JASON CHAFFIN IT’S IS AN EXTREME
RIGHT-WINGER AND HE WENT ON CNN TO DEFEND DISTRICT CONEY AND
REPUBLICAN HEALTHCARE PROPOSAL. SEEMS LIKE A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE
GOING TO LOSE THEIR HEALTH INSURANCE AND THEY’RE NOT GOING
TO BE ABLE TO AFFORD AND IT IS ACTUALLY GOING TO BE MORE
EXPENSIVE. I SAID IT WAS GOING TO BE LESS
EXTENSIVE THAN OBAMA CARE? BASICALLY HE IS TELLING YOU
I DON’T CARE. THAT IS YOUR PROBLEM NOT MINE. WHAT HE SAYS IS ACTUALLY
SLOWLY WORSE. WATCH.>>ACCESS FOR LOWER INCOME
AMERICANS DOESN’T EQUAL COVERAGE.>>WELL, WE’RE GETTING RID OF
THE INDIVIDUAL MANDATE THAT WE’RE GETTING RID OF THOSE
THINGS THAT PEOPLE SAID THAT THEY DON’T WANT THAT AND
YOU KNOW WHAT? AMERICANS HAVE CHOICES AND I
ADVOCATE CHOICE. MAYBE RATHER THAN GETTING THE
NEW IPHONE THAT THEY JUST LOVE AND THEY WANT TO SPEND HUNDREDS
OF DOLLARS ON, MAYBE THEY SHOULD INVEST IN
THEIR HEALTHCARE. THEY HAVE TO MAKE THOSE
DECISIONS THEMSELVES.>>YOU REALLY THINK, THIS IS THE
COMICAL VIEW THAT REPUBLICANS HAVE A POOR PEOPLE. THERE ARE WELFARE KOREANS. THERE DRIVING CADILLACS OF THE
LATEST IPHONES AND LIVING IN THE LAP OF LUXURY THEY’RE JUST
PRETENDING TO BE POOR. YOU KNOW HOW THE POOR ARE,
THEY’RE JUST CHEATS. ALWAYS LIVING ON US THAT WHEN
YOU PUT YOUR IPHONE AWAY GET HEALTHCARE? FIRST OF ALL, I’M GOING TO
BOTHER TO GIVE YOU THE FACTS HERE WHEN IT’S OBVIOUS. IT
TURNS OUT PEOPLE WHO MAKE $30,000 OR LESS OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF
THEM DON’T HAVE IPHONES. 87% OF THEM DON’T HAVE IPHONES. YOU KNOW WHY? BECAUSE THEY CAN AFFORD THEM. THEY’RE NOT KIDDING, IT’S NOT
A JOKE OR A TRICK. THEY ARE ACTUALLY POOR. THEY ACTUALLY MAKE LESS THAN
$30,000 A YEAR WHICH FOR CHAFEE’S AND
THE REST OF THE INCREDIBLY RICH POLITICIANS WE HAVE, $30,000,
WHO COULDN’T AFFORD THAT? AS RUSH LIMBAUGH ONCE SAID, I
HAD TO CHECK INTO AN EMERGENCY ROOM, I DID HAVE INSURANCE, WHO
CARES? ALL IT COST ME WAS HAVE A SUV. THERE LIKE THAT IS NO BIG DEAL. DON’T YOU WILL HAVE THAT? THEY HAVE NO EMPATHY WHATSOEVER. BY THE WAY, AN IPHONE DOESN’T
COST ANYWHERE NEAR AS MUCH AS HEALTHCARE INSURANCE DOES LET
ALONE IF YOU DON’T HAVE INSURANCE, HEALTHCARE
COVERAGE DOES. THE LACK OF HUMANITY IS
UNBELIEVABLE. HE FURTHER CLARIFIED IN THE SAME
INTERVIEW, IN OTHER WORDS FOR LOWER INCOME AMERICANS, YOU’RE
SAYING THIS IS GOING TO REQUIRE SOME SACRIFICE
ON THEIR PART? AND HE RESPONDS YES, I THINK
THAT’S FAIR. DURING THE CAMPAIGN I REMEMBER
TRUMP ARE YOU GUYS TALKING A SACRIFICE. EVERYTHING HE WAS GOING TO BE
CHEAPER AND BETTER AND COVER MORE PEOPLE. NOW THE SUN AFTER THE CAMPAIGN,
NO, NO, SACRIFICE. WHO CARES? DON’T EAT, WHATEVER. DO WHATEVER YOU HAVE TO DO. IT’S ALL ABOUT CHOICES. THAT’S INTERESTING THAT HE SAYS
THAT BECAUSE HERE’S A CHOICE THE REPUBLICANS MADE IN THIS
LEGISLATION. THEY DECIDED TO GIVE A GIANT TAX
BREAK TO THE RICHEST PEOPLE IN THE COUNTRY AND THE
MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS. THAT’S AN INTERESTING
CHOICE YOU MADE. IT TURNS OUT JASON J FITZ AND
HIS FELLOW REPUBLICANS THINK I LOVE MY RICH DONORS. IPHONES FOR EVERYBODY IF
YOU’RE RICH. WITH THOSE TAX BREAKS, YOU COULD
BUY LITERALLY THOUSANDS, MAYBE MILLIONS OF IPHONES. COMBINED, MILLIONS OF IPHONES,
IPHONE FOR EVERYBODY. YOU’RE GETTING BILLIONS OF
DOLLARS IN TAX BREAKS. THAT’S A CHOICE HE MADE AND THEN
WHEN IT COMES TO PORTS LIKE THAT’S YOUR PROBLEM. HEY, SOME OF YOUR CAN HAVE
INSURANCE. TOUGH CRAP. SHOULDN’T HAVE VOTED FOR
REPUBLICAN, IDIOT. THEN THE REST OF THE PRESS SAYS
THAT HE WALKED IT BACK. LET ME SEE THE INTERVIEW WHERE
HE THEORETICALLY AMENDED WHAT HE SAID. HE DIDN’T AMENDED ALL,
WHAT STOCK>>, SO YOU MADE ON CNN ABOUT
PEOPLE MAKING A CHOICE BETWEEN BUYING AN IPHONE AND BUYING
HEALTHCARE AND HE SAID PEOPLE ARE GOING TO MAKE SACRIFICES
THAT SOME FOLKS AND LIKE THE WAY THAT CAME OUT THE>>WILL COME OVER TRYING TO SAY
MAYBE I DIDN’T SAY IT AS SMOOTHLY AS I POSSIBLY COULD BUT
PEOPLE NEED TO MAKE A CONSCIOUS CHOICE AND I BELIEVE
IN SELF-RELIANCE AND THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE TO MAKE THOSE
DECISIONS. SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO MAKE SOME
DECISIONS IN YOUR LIFE AND WHERE TO MAKE THOSE INVESTMENTS
AND YOUR HEALTHCARE, MAYBE A HEALTH SAVINGS ACCOUNT WHICH IS
PLANS THAT WAS INTRODUCED AS VERY HEAVY ON. THOSE THE TYPES OF THINGS THAT
YOU NEED TO MAKE A CHOICE AND A DECISION YOUR LIFE AND AS AN
ADULT, YOU GET TO MAKE THOSE DECISIONS AND LIVE BY THOSE
CONSEQUENCES.>>SO HE DID NOT AMEND
WHAT HE SAID ALL. HE JUST DOUBLED THEN DOWN. YOU HEARD IT THAT IT’S AMAZING
HOW THE REST OF THE MEDIA APPARENTLY DOZENS “. DID YOU JUST MIGHT HEAR HIM? HE SAID YOU HAVE TO MAKE THE
CHOICES AND YOU HAD TO FACE THE CONSEQUENCES. NOW YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU’VE
OVER REPUBLICANS, THE CONSEQUENCES, YOU BETTER BE A
MILLIONAIRE OR A MULTINATIONAL CORPORATION BECAUSE IF YOU ARE
NOT, YOU ARE GOING TO GET CRUSHED AND THEN AFTERWARD THEY
ARE GOING TO LAUGH AT YOU AND SAY SO WHAT? SO WHAT, YOU ARE NOT A RICH
DONOR OF MINE, I MADE A CHOICE. I CHOSE MY RICH DONORS OVER
YOUR WELL-BEING. SAD DAY FOR YOU. WELL, ELECTIONS HAVE
CONSEQUENCES.
