Hannity Loses Patience with Dem Rep. on Obamacare: ‘You’re Just Ducking and Dodging!’

Sean Hannity attempted to get a straight answer from Democratic congressman Luis Gutierrez on Obamacare Tuesday night, but Gutierrez did not directly answer Hannity and mainly deferred. But Hannity did not let him off easily, interrupting him to shout “You’re not answering the question!” or “You’re just ducking and dodging!”

At issue was Congress receiving health care subsidies and big business getting special exemptions, but the same not being done for individuals. Gutierrez insisted Obamacare should be separated from the shutdown fight, and claimed that members of Congress “pay like any other person.”

Hannity called him out and pressed him to say whether he would support eliminating the subsidy. Gutierrez started to say, “I have the same ability to join the health care system that anybody on my staff––” before Hannity interrupted, “That’s not true!”

He asked exasperatedly, “Why do I have to educate a lawmaker on a law that you passed?!”

Gutierrez shot back, “I’m sorry that you’re so misinformed.”

They kept arguing back and forth, and Hannity kept growing more and more frustrated at Gutierrez not answering the question. Eventually the congressman admitted Hannity should speak to someone from the White House if he wants a real answer on the exemptions.
