Earlier this week, Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) appeared on Ralston Reports, a Nevada-based television news show which airs in Las Vegas and Reno, and had a Southwest Airlines “Wanna Get Away?” moment.
The interview was fresh on the heels of two federal appellate court rulings on Obamacare subsidies, rulings which were issued on the same day but which directly contradicted one another.
The first ruling, issued by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, stated that Obamacare enrollees who live in states which have opted out of setting up their own health insurance exchanges are not eligible to receive government subsidies through the federal exchange.
The second ruling, issued hours later by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit, stated that these enrollees are in fact eligible to receive federal subsidies.
On Wednesday’s edition of Ralston Reports, Debbie Wasserman Schultz attempted to make the claim that Nevada, under a Republican governor, had opted out of setting up a state exchange.
This particular factoid proved not to be true, and host Jon Ralston was not afraid to call out Schultz on her blunder.
