Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) seemingly forgot to do her homework before her recent appearance on “Ralston Reports,” a Nevada-based TV show that airs in Las Vegas and Reno.
Following the “competing” federal appellate court rulings on federal Obamacare subsidy eligibility, Schultz argued that the Supreme Court will ultimately make the right decision and rule in favor of President Barack Obama’s signature health care law.
“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 healthcare plans are getting them on the federal exchange,” she added.
That’s when journalist Jon Ralston pounced.
“Let me just stop you for a second, because you’re misinformed about that,” Ralston interrupted. “[Nevada Gov.] 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.”
“OK. That’s not even the point I’m making. I stand corrected. I’m not from Nevada,” Schultz said, seemingly trying to blow past the gaffe.
