Tomi Lahren Says She Gets Benefited From Obama Care and Wants To Get Rid Of It As Well
Outspoken conservative commentator Tomi Lahren admitted she still benefits from a feature of Obamacare, seconds after arguing publicly against it, on Saturday.
During the course of the debate with Chelsea Handler in Pasadena, California, both discussed the Republicans’ failed attempt at health care reform as well as possible alternatives to the current system. Lahren, an avid Trump supporter, then blasted the ACA and told Handler that while she believes it’s her right to purchase health care, she doesn’t feel it’s her right to pay for it for other people.

“I think that universal health care is a bad decision. I think it's a bad choice,” Lahren said in at Politicon, adding: “I do believe in repealing Obamacare and also replacing it.”

Lahren repeatedly argued against the law, which President Obama signed in 2010.
At one point of the debate, Handler asked the conservative commentator: “So do you have a health care plan or no?”
"Well luckily, I'm 24, so I am still on my parents'," Lahren said.

The answer by Lahren was met with laughter and boos from the audience present in the debate session, some of whom started yelling, “Thanks Obama”.
Lahren later relented, “To say that there are things from Obamacare that are not positive, that’s not true.”
She also added, “I do believe that allowing people to say on their parents’ health insurance until they're 26 – I do believe that is a worthwhile conversation to have.”
Wonder if @TomiLahren is still eager to get rid of Obamacare now that the world has shared with her the news that she's covered on it.

On social media, many responded to the news and slammed Lahren for being hypocritical.
