Minority leader Nancy Pelosi spoke with reporters Thursday after the Democrat’s special election loss in Florida earlier in the week. Pelosi scolded Republicans for using Obamacare as an electoral issue this year.
Question: Given the results of Florida’s special election this week, how difficult politically is the health care law on Democrats and how can other Democrats avoid a similar fate in the fall?
Nancy Pelosi: I’m very proud of our House Democrats and not only how they have embraced the Affordable Care Act but they helped create it. But how proud they are of it. I think that the Republicans are wasting their time using that as their electoral issue.
Sure you do.
