Minnesota Democrats Laughed at for Trying to Defend Obamacare

With as bad as Obamacare has gone so far, you’d think that Democrat supporters of the measure would be ready to defend it whenever they spoke publicly. Well, you’d be wrong.

Recently, Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, and Representatives Tim Walz and Collin Peterson, were holding a townhall style meeting when they were asked about Obamacare. None seemed ready to give a defense.

A member of the audience asked, “I thought the Affordable Care Act would save $2500 per family. What happened?”

An uncomfortable moment followed the question as the three Democrats could only exchange glances — one assumes each was hoping the other had a good response — they didn’t. The obvious discomfort made the crowd erupt in laughter, as the audience seemed to finally understand just how bad Obamacare must be.

Representative Peterson was first to respond, to the chagrin of the other two.

“I voted ‘no,’ so I’ll let these guys handle that,” he said.

His fellow Democrats may not have appreciated it, but the crowd loved it. As Peterson finished saying he voted “no” on Obamacare – the crowd exploded in applause and then laughter at his fellow panel mates who had supported the law.

Keep supporting Obamacare, Democrats – it will mean nothing but good things for Republicans in 2014 and 2016.
