NBC’s Mitchell: ObamaCare Hikes Just ‘Nagging Problems’ for Clinton


<p>NBC reporter and Hillary Clinton fan club president Andrea Mitchell showed off her infatuation with the Democratic presidential nominee Tuesday evening, as she wrote off the massive 25 percent ObamaCare premium hikes as part of a series of &ldquo;nagging problems.&rdquo; &ldquo;<strong>A second problem, the rise in Obamacare premiums, an issue [Donald] Trump is exploiting,</strong>&rdquo; Mitchell whined during her report on <em>NBC Nightly News</em>.</p>

<p>So according to Mitchell&rsquo;s view, the skyrocketing healthcare costs for millions of Americans was merely a &ldquo;nagging problem&rdquo; being &ldquo;exploited&rdquo; by her nominee&rsquo;s opponent. But it appears that Mitchell&rsquo;s own network betrayed her, because immediately following her downplaying of the issue NBC reported on how it was putting the squeeze on Kentucky mother of two:</p>

<p>TOM COSTELLO: Occupational therapist Sarah Halfacre says she&#39;s caught in the middle. She needs the ObamaCare coverage offered in Kentucky, but her insurer, United Healthcare is losing money in the state and pulling out. Now Sarah will have to choose a new Kentucky plan and her premiums are sure to rise above her current $340 monthly payment.</p>

<p>Mitchell&rsquo;s &ldquo;nagging problem&rdquo; is no laughing matter to Halfacre, who told Costello that if premiums don&rsquo;t decrease she will lose her healthcare coverage. And it won&rsquo;t be just Kentucky that will be effected. One fifth of ObamaCare shoppers will have only one option to choose from. That&rsquo;s in addition to the average cost of premiums <a href="http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/nicholas-fondacaro/2016/10/24/cbs-n…; target="_blank">skyrocketing</a> by 25 percent, with Arizona&rsquo;s prices breaking the atmosphere at 116 percent.</p>

<p>In addition to dismissing soaring healthcare costs, Mitchell touted Clinton&rsquo;s early voting strategy and glorified former Secretary of State Colin Powell&rsquo;s endorsement. &ldquo;<strong>He had in a hacked e-mail called Donald Trump a national disgrace, tonight saying that Hillary Clinton is fully qualified to serve as president,</strong>&rdquo; she praised. Mitchell seemingly has forgotten how Powell slammed Clinton in another leaked e-mail saying, &ldquo;Everything HRC touches she kind of screws up with hubris.&rdquo;</p>
