Shocker. Big Lib McCaskill Suddenly Distances Herself From Individual Mandate That She Pushed Just 4 Months Ago (Video)
What a shock!
Big Lib Claire McCaskill suddenly disapproves of the individual mandate in Obamacare.
But for some reason, Claire is now distancing herself from her vote.
Speaking on MSNBC Wednesday morning, Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill suggested that Democrats should ditch the individual mandate required in President Obama’s health reform law.
It’s a proposed amendment to legislation she supported that’s deeply unpopular in Missouri just as she ramps up for a challenging reelection bid.
“There’s other ways we can get people into the pool — I hope — other than a mandate, and we need to look at that,” McCaskill said Wednesday morning on MSNBC.
In August, 71 percent of Missouri voters approved a referendum opposing the federal health care measure.
McCaskill clearly can’t walk away from her vote, but she’ll likely spend a good part of the next two years explaining ways it can be improved or altered.
