WASHINGTON – Democratic members of Congress who have been in office since 2010 have been defending the Affordable Care Act from critics and promoting the health care overhaul to constituents ever since. But four years on, it appears that job still hasn’t gotten easier.
At a forum on agricultural issues Wednesday in Mankato, DFL Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Reps. Collin Peterson and Tim Walz got asked by a constituent about why the law, also known as Obamacare, had not delivered the $2,500 in annual savings promised by President Obama.
The response was awkward for the trio, as this clip from a KEYC-TV news report makes clear. Republicans have been circulating it today.
