The Sirius XM Radio hosts of the popular “Opie & Anthony Show” spent their most recent show ranting how they were booted from their health insurance plan due to Obamacare and questioning why the American public would sit still for such treatment from their government.

“I don’t know why we’re not having a revolution at this point,” said Gregg Hughes, the Opie side of the duo, Mediaite reported. “For the first time in my life, I had perfect health insurance.”

In apparent mock of the White House’s mantra that those who say they have lost their insurance are only furthering a Republican talking point aimed at repealing Obamacare, Anthony Cumia then replied: “You’re lying though, because this didn’t happen to anybody. This is all lies that the Republicans are throwing out there.”

Mr. Hughes said that he’s only telling a story that millions of other Americans have shared — and then asked, why would everybody lie?

Mr. Cumia’s panned response, Mediaite reported: “Because they can’t [expletive] grasp that Obama lied to the American people when he said you can keep your insurance.”

And Mr. Hughes concluded: “The government is just sneaky.”
