Liberals have been in defend-Obamacare mode for quite some time—and as the midterm election approaches, the questions may get a little tougher.
For example, would you vote for Obamacare again?
Senator Mark Pryor (D.-Ark.) said last week that he would. (See video above.)
The reporter interviewing Pryor noted the millions of Americans whose insurance policies had been canceled due to Obamacare and said that “A lot of our premiums have shot up.” He asked, “Knowing now what you know now, would you have voted for this back then?”
You know, I would have. Of course, I would want to see some changes back then. But I think on something like this, it’s big, it’s complicated, it’s difficult. If you get 80 percent of it right, you’ve really done something. We probably did get 80 percent of it right.
Of course, as The Washington Free Beacon notes, we don’t know what that “80 percent” is that he’s talking about.
Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) said last week that the “enrollment announcement confirms what I have said since Day One—the Affordable Care Act holds great promise and is getting stronger every day.” That definitely sounds like election-year talk, as political strategists guess at ways vulnerable incumbents should position themselves on Obamacare.
