Though Tomi Lahren is vocal proponent for repealing Obamacare, don’t say it never provided anything for her.
The conservative political commentator and former TV host for Glenn Beck’s TheBlaze sat down with comedian Chelsea Handler at Politicon to discuss their differing political views this weekend. Naturally the conversation turned to health care, during which Lahren revealed that she benefits from a key Obamacare policy.
Handler: “OK, so do you have a health care plan or no?”
Lahren: “Well luckily I am 24, so I am still on my parents’.”
Lahren is, of course, referencing the Affordable Care Act policy that allows young adults under the age of 26 to remain on their parents’ health care plans.
When Lahren’s admission was met with groans from the audience and shouts of “Thanks, Obama,” Handler defended her guest: “Stop, stop, stop she’s being honest.”
Lahren went on to argue that, actually, there are some tenets of Obamacare that are “positive,” the ability to stay on a parent’s health care being one of them.
Nevertheless, Lahren borrowed a term from President Donald Trump to describe her opinion on state of the Affordable Care Act.
“I think that one thing we can agree on is that Obamacare in a death spiral,” she said.
“It’s in a death spiral because it’s being sabotaged by the President of the United States,” Handler countered. “A decent human being would say OK let’s do whatever we can to make the system in place work and thrive.”[H/T: The Daily Beast]
