<p>Buckle up, readers, because this has to be one of the more clueless things MSNBC&rsquo;s <em>Hardball </em>host Chris Matthews has ever said. On Tuesday&rsquo;s show, Matthews repeated a false claim that there was no<strong> &ldquo;real&rdquo; </strong>individual mandate to purchase health insurance under ObamaCare and the GOP not fixing this supposed problem will doom its chances of success.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Matthews arrived at this asinine claim by reminding Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele that some<strong> &ldquo;countries have a requirement that you have to have insurance like you have to have a driver &mdash; a car insurance&rdquo;</strong> and conceded that <strong>&ldquo;a lot of young people in their 20s are healthy and most times, nothing will happen to them.&rdquo;</strong></p>
