It was only a matter of time before Juan Williams ended up the Daily Dunce on People’s Pundit Daily. Tonight, while sitting on the panel for Special Report, he put it best when he turned to Judge Napolitano and said, “I think I live in an alternate universe.”
Yes, Juan Williams, you do live in an “alternate universe” if you think that Ted Cruz only rallied a small part of the conservative wing within the Republican Party, filled with deeply disgruntled Tea Party conservatives. As of today, there are just under 2 million Americans who have signed the Don’t Fund It petition to defund Obamacare.
As of today, opposition to Obamacare is growing, not decreasing, which brings me to Juan Williams’ second comment that warranted him being added to the Daily Dunce seat. Young people, nor are any other demographic, are not so thrilled or enthusiastic about Obamacare they are rushing to sign up. Aside from the updated average of polling that shows as much, a poll conducted by Insurancequotes.com reported that 64% of uninsured Americans still aren’t sure whether they’ll comply. Only 19 percent said they will get coverage by the deadline, while 10 percent said they plan to stay uninsured and pay the penalty, which in 2014 is the greater of $95 or one percent of income for an adult.
Similarly, Gallup found that young people and minorities who are uninsured are least likely to purchase insurance, partly because they are most likely to have no idea what the heck is in the bill, or what it means to them. Furthermore, if anyone is playing to their base, it is President Obama, who again said today on the “stump” that he will not negotiate over the debt ceiling. But Americans, by a 2 -1 margin, say they do not approve of raising the debt ceiling unless it is coupled with meaningful spending cuts.
President Obama also made the outrageous comment – which Juan Williams just simply ignored – that there is “no widespread” evidence that Obamacare is harming jobs and the economy. Yes, again Juan Williams, You do live in an “alternate universe,” because you probably believe that nonsense.
Juan Williams just about made it into the Daily Dunce the other night, when he ridiculously defended the IRS by using the already-debunked excuse that so-called progressive organizations were also targeted by the IRS. Rebuffing that ridiculous charge, the Treasury Department’s inspector general – Mr. George – revealed that 292 (which is 100%) of Tea Party groups seeking special tax status were put under IRS review, while just 6 progressive groups were targeted.
It is absolutely disingenuous for liberal talking head – Juan Williams – to continue to perpetuate a story that everyone knew immediately, was a fabricated lie. A statement right after the planted storyline broke would be understandable, but now, not at all. Do you really think that Juan Williams – today’s Daily Dunce – didn’t know that when he said it just the other night? Only someone who lives in an “alternate universe” would believe that.
