Fox Business Network anchor Melissa Francis revealed on Friday that she was “silenced” by CNBC, her former employer, when she questioned the “math of Obamacare” on the air.
After slamming Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber’s comments about the “stupidity” of Americans, Francis told the story of what happened when she started asking questions about the health care law early-on.
She also alleged that “liberal media,” including NBC, ABC, the Los Angeles Times and the Associated Press, have yet to even cover the Gruber videos and are complicit in keeping the truth from Americans.
“It’s shocking, but it actually doesn’t surprise me because when I was at CNBC, I pointed out to my viewers that the math of Obamacare simply didn’t work. Not the politics by the way. But just the basic math. And when I did that, I was silenced,” Francis said.
“I said on the air that you couldn’t add millions of people to the system and force insurance companies to cover their pre-existing conditions without raising the price on everyone else,” she continued. “I pointed out that it couldn’t possibly be true that if you like your plan, you can keep it. That was a lie. And in fact, millions of people had their plans canceled.”
After making the comments, Francis said she was called into a meeting by management and told he was “disrespecting the office of the president.”
