Debbie Wasserman Shultz Gets Called Out In TV Interview: 'I Stand Corrected'
Nevada newsman John Ralston called out Florida Congresswoman and DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Shultz for getting her facts wrong during an interview, Tuesday, on his Nevada-based show Ralston Reports.
Shultz appeared on the show to discuss yesterday's two federal appeals court decisions on ObamaCare federal subsidies.
“Just take a state like Nevada, where you have a governor who refused to implement a state exchange and as a result people who get Affordable Care Act health-care plans are getting them on the federal exchange,” said Wasserman Schultz reflexively launching into an attack on the Republican governor.
But Ralston stopped her right there.
“Let me just stop you for a second, because you’re misinformed about that,” Ralston said. “Brian Sandoval put in a state exchange. He did, so whoever briefed you on that is wrong. He did put in a state exchange. He was the first Republican governor to do that.
A flustered Wasserman Schultz responded defensively: “OK. That’s not even the point I’m making,” adding “I stand corrected. I’m not from Nevada.”
Ralston graciously bailed her out: “I know, that’s why I say, it’s not your fault,” he said.
