Fox News hosts mock Obamacare over being offered in different languages, “How about English?”

On Wednesday Fox News host Bill Hemmer found a new reason to dislike Obamacare: It’s because it’s offered in 150 languages. I know, right? Obama’s walking around acting like there is a good percentage of Americans who are more comfortable speaking in their native dialect, in order to fully comprehend Affordable Health Care.

Raw Story reports, “At a briefing on Tuesday, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius had noted that call centers were prepared to answer questions about the health care law in 150 languages.

Sebelius told MSNBC that the translators were necessary “to answer questions, help people understand some of the terminology.”

Hemmer said, “There’s also a report that says there’s 150 different languages available to those who wanted to sign up Where does that happen?”

OMG! Where?

He continued, “I got an idea. How about English?”

“English, that would be a good start,” co-host Martha MacCallum agreed.

How is this even pertinent to the topic of Obamacare? Easy access and easy enrollment is the goal.

    I guess Hemmer can’t read english, because I knew it was in english along with other languages.

  • tiredoftea

    Look, it’s Dana waxing all blonde about how there are no doctors who speak a language other than English! Because, ‘murica!

  • sleepyo

    morons, complete and utter morons.

  • James Laurence Ransom

    Hospitals and medical care providers have been able to access ‘language lines’ on telephone for some time to allow non English speaking patients to be informed about health issues or a treatment plan. Too bad the TV commentators don’t know this

  • ladyliberal

    The idiots on Fox don’t understand English, if they did they wouldn’t spout the ridiculous non facts that they do. Hey stupid he included all those other languages in the hope that jerks like you would at least find one you’d understand.
