Rockefeller on Obamacare opposition: Maybe he’s the ‘wrong color’

SHARE Rockefeller on Obamacare opposition: Maybe he’s the ‘wrong color’

Are you one of the many people who oppose Obamacare?

Maybe you don’t like it strictly because of Obama’s race, says Democratic West Virginia Sen. Jay Rockefeller.

“I think it is very important to take a long view at what’s going on here,” Rockefeller said Wednesday at a committee hearing on Obamacare. “I’ll be able to dig up some emails that make part of the Affordable Care Act that doesn’t look good — especially from people who made up their mind that they don’t want it to work, because they don’t like the president. Maybe he’s of the wrong color, something of that sort. I’ve seen a lot of that and I know a lot of that to be true. It’s not something you’re meant to talk about in public but it’s something I’m talking about in public because that is very true.”

There may be some validity to Rockefeller’s statement — or maybe their dislike of Obamacare has nothing to do with the president’s race, but more on opposition to the man himself.

A recent NBC poll showed that voters like Obamacare as long as it’s not called Obamacare.
