Marco Rubio Criticizes Spanish Language Networks For Becoming All-Out Advocates for Obamacare

"if ABC-CBS-NBC-CNN, anybody were doing that, I mean, there would just be an extraordinary amount of criticism."

Obamacare was a subject discussed when Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) appeared on the Wednesday evening Hugh Hewitt Show. Rubio used the discussion as an opportunity to point out the bias of the Spanish-language TV Networks, saying, "both of the major Spanish language networks, but Univision in particular, have basically become all-out advocates for Obamacare, trying to get people signed up." And that "if ABC-CBS-NBC-CNN, anybody were doing that, I mean, there would just be an extraordinary amount of criticism"

During his last appearance on the program, Rubio talked about the Spanish language Obamacare site being broken. That's where Hewitt began:

Hewitt:

When Obamacare launched, you actually were the first person to tell me that the Spanish language site was cracked. Have they fixed that? And what are they saying about Obamacare in the Spanish media? I don’t speak the language. You do.

Rubio:

Well, unfortunately, you know, and I think there was a report about this a couple of days ago, Brent Bozelle’s new group that’s calling attention to this. I mean, both of the major Spanish language networks, but Univision in particular, have basically become all-out advocates for Obamacare, trying to get people signed up. I mean, if ABC-CBS-NBC-CNN, anybody were doing that, I mean, there would just be extraordinary amount of criticism. You now have these, look, I think they have a right to do it, it’s a free country, it’s a privately-held company. They can do whatever they want. But I think it’s important to recognize that that’s what’s happening. And it’s unfortunate, because here’s what I think is true. I don’t think people are being told what these plans actually are all about. I think people are going to be shocked when they sign up for this insurance, and then they realize that before they can even begin to use it, they’ve got to come up with thousands of dollars for their deductibles first. And that’s when people are going to figure out what a fraud Obamacare really is.
