'The death of shame': MSNBC's Morning Joe torches GOP candidates for 'lying' to voters about health care

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough mocked Republican candidates for telling voters they want to preserve health care protections for those with pre-existing conditions -- even though they've worked to undo those same protections.


The "Morning Joe" host rolled a supercut of GOP candidates such as Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker promising voters to protect their health care -- even though Republicans have staked their reputation on undoing the Affordable Care Act.

"Oh my god, they're all lying," Scarborough said, laughing incredulously. "Let's just start with Rick Scott in Florida. 'I will always cover fight for pre-existing conditions.' Did you know he's in charge at the head on of a lawsuit to do what? He's suing to make sure insurance companies do not have to cover pre-existing conditions."

Scarborough said those other Republican candidates assuring voters they would protect their health care had either participated in lawsuits on behalf of insurance companies or voted in Congress to ensure those carriers did not have to cover pre-existing conditions.

"They're all lying through their teeth," he said. "It's unbelievable, no shame -- the death of shame."
