RUSH: Wasn’t it last week or something we were told that if you had signed up with the exchange that you had better call your insurance company to find out? To not accept whatever the website told you, that you’d better call and confirm it? And now members of Congress are being told the same thing, and they thought they were covered. They thought they were being taken care of. They thought their subsidies were being handled, they had nothing to worry about.
“‘Please DO NOT ASSUME you are covered unless you have seen the Confirmation Letter from the Disbursing Office!’ the e-mail to staffers said. The e-mail urged staffers who have signed up via the DC Health Link — the health care exchange for the District of Columbia — to double check with the office that they’re enrolled. ‘Do NOT rely on your “My Account” page or other correspondence from DCHL,’ the message said.”
You know, I don’t care where you go, I don’t care what you look at, whatever the news is, nothing is working, nothing can be relied on, nothing that the government has anything to do with can be relied on. Unemployment news, health care has now been totally bollixed. This is an absolute disaster. The budget is totally out of control. We’re spending money that we don’t have. Apparently not one person in Washington, no matter what party, no matter what think tank — well, I gotta exclude the think tanks. Not one elected official is willing to stand up and say, “Wait a minute, stop the presses, we don’t have any money.”
