CNN’s Christine Romans played Obama spokesperson on Monday’s Starting Point and accused Republicans of creating “uncertainty” about ObamaCare in trying to repeal it. That fits what has seemingly become a CNN line of “stop fighting this law and get in line.”
“I’m wondering, should Congresspeople be spending more time helping their constituents comply with the law rather than continuing all this uncertainty about it?” Romans challenged Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.). Ironically, CNN’s own poll shows a majority in favor of Congress repealing the law.
CNN has scoffed at Republican attempts the repeal the law before. Hours after the Supreme Court upheld the law, anchor Brooke Baldwin asked Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) if he wasn’t being a “sore loser” for continuing to fight ObamaCare.
Romans continued to grill Blackburn about helping her constituents comply with ObamaCare. “I mean, I hear more from Republicans saying ‘we’re going to make this not come true,’ not ‘here’s how we’re going to help you get your business to comply’,” she lamented.
Romans also revealed she counsels small business owners with less than 50 employees that the law won’t crush them, but Blackburn fought back. “[W]hen they talk to their insurance provider, the insurance provider says because of the new regulations that are going to be contained in Obamacare, this is what is happening to your insurance cost,” she insisted.
