SiriusXM Radio’s Gregg Hughes and Anthony Cumia, hosts of the popular Opie & Anthony Show, blew up on Thursday over the Affordable Care Act’s insurance coverage requirements which have resulted in the cancellations of both host’s plans. They wondered why the American people have not yet engaged in “revolution” over this issue.
Hughes, a married father of two, began by revealing that he lost his health insurance plan recently. He became animated while discussing how difficult the paperwork associated with applying for a new plan appeared to be.
“I don’t know why we’re not having a revolution at this point,” Hughes said. “For the first time in my life, I had perfect health insurance.”
“You’re lying though, because this didn’t happen to anybody,” Cumia challenged. “This is all lies that the Republicans are throwing out there.”
Hughes noted that his story is similar to millions of others and asked why they all would be lying. “Because they can’t f***ing grasp that Obama lied to the American people when he said you can keep your insurance,” Cumia said. He added that the president’s assertion that more than 7 million applied for insurance through the ACA is inaccurate.
“The government is just sneaky,” Hughes concluded.
