Carly Fiorina joined me in hour two of today’s program:
HH: I am so pleased to welcome back now, who has become a regular weekly guest and I am glad about it, Carly Fiorina, the voice of the new voter. Carly Fiorina, of course, welcome, it’s always good to talk to you, Carly.
CF: Well, great to be back with you, Hugh. How are you doing?
HH: I’m great. I want to tell everyone who was misinformed when I gave a speech at the Western Conservative Summit and omitted Carly, and then had to come back up, that was all planned so that I would just draw additional attention to her. And then I saw her, she was very gracious. Thank you for your forgiveness, but that list gets so long, but you had quite the breakout weekend in Denver. Is that happening wherever you go?

CF: I would. And in this case, while I would be very reluctant to do so, the truth is that’s how this thing was passed in the first place. So you know, it was passed on reconciliation. That, too, went around normal Senate rules. And Obamacare is a tangled web that is becoming worse, clearly, day by day. This isn’t an ideological thing, although obviously from an ideological perspective, having government this entwined in society is terrible. But it’s obviously failing all Americans, whether they were for it or not – emergency room visit up over 50%, insurance premiums up 35% that we know of, people being thrown into Medicaid where Medicaid is underfunded and doctors are leaving Medicaid in droves. This plan is failing the American people whether they were for it originally or not. Continue Reading
