President Obama, Democrat Leader Reid and Democrat Chairman Kaine Rammed ObamCare Through Via Backroom Deals On Christmas Eve
As Democrat U.S. Senator Jim Webb prepares to leave Washington, earlier today he was on MSNBC and said he regretted how President Barack Obama and then-Democrat National Committee (DNC) Chairman Tim Kaine strong-armed their $1.76 trillion, job-killing healthcare bill through Congress.
As many Virginians remember, during the healthcare debate Senate Democrat Leader Harry Reid along with the Obama Administration made a slew of backroom deals – including the infamous Cornhusker Kickback – to convince members of his party to support Obama and Kaine’s flawed healthcare bill.
As MSNBC reports:
Notably, Kaine once said that ObamaCare would go down in history as one of President Obama’s great achievements.
“It speaks volumes that Senator Jim Webb’s greatest regret is how President Obama and Chairman Kaine rammed their divisive, job-killing healthcare bill through Washington,” said National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) spokesman Brian Walsh. “Virginians deserve a Senator like George Allen who will work to repeal and replace this job-killing healthcare law.
MSNBC’S CHUCK TODD: “Was there any one vote he would want back if he could do it all over again.”
SENATOR JIM WEBB: “My great regret on that is that I believe the whole health care issue could have been handled differently by the administration and over here. I think the way that the process was put forward without a clear set of principles from the administration caused a lot of fear in the country.”
