Job Stewart called the Lying Kathleen Sebelius a Liar

Posted by PITHOCRATES - October 13th, 2013

Week in Review

Young people get more of their news from The Daily Show than they do from Fox News.  And no wonder.  Jon Stewart is funny.  Witty.  Smart.  And he has some of the best writers working in television.  But he doesn’t understand economics.  All he knows is the Keynesian nonsense he was taught by schools interested in empowering the state.  For that’s all they teach now.  They don’t teach the Austrian school.  The Chicago school.  Not even the classical economics that made the United States the number one economic power in the world.  Which is probably why Stewart believes the government is good and righteous.  There to help people.  And not make a ruling class.  Like governments everywhere use Keynesian economics to do.

So Stewart may be ignorant about things economic.  But he has integrity.  Which is why he called Kathleen Sebelius a liar (see Jon Stewart accuses Kathleen Sebelius of lying to him about Obamacare by Jamie Weinstein posted 10/8/2013 on The Daily Caller).

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius likely thought her interview with Jon Stewart on “The Daily Show” Monday night would be an easy setting to pitch the Obamacare exchanges to young people. Instead, she ended up getting accused of being a liar by the popular comedy host.

During his interview with Sebelius, Stewart repeatedly sought an answer from the secretary on why big businesses got a delay in their Obamacare mandate to provide affordable health insurance to their employees, while individuals did not get a delay in their Obamacare mandate making them purchase health care or face a penalty.

In a rare monologue at the end of the show, Stewart said he remained confused and that he suspected that the secretary may have been lying to him.

Stewart is a card-carrying liberal.  He wants to support Obamacare.  He wants to believe everything the government says.  But he’s smart.  He sees what’s going on.  And he sees the unfairness of Obamacare in regard to the mandates.  Even during the interview he said the administration was making it difficult for people like him to support them.  Which is why he called Sebelius a liar.  Even though it was painful to do.
