Mitch McConnell’s Strange Stance On Obamacare

In a debate last week, U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell was asked about his stance on The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). His answer was fairly vague.  He says it’s fine to “have a website.”

It is unclear what he meant. The website is part of The Affordable Care Act, as well as the subsidies, Medicaid expansion, and the mandates for insurance companies to be on the exchange.

Many patient-protection laws are part of the act, such as the law that allows children to stay on their parents’ insurance plan until age 26.  Laws outlawing pre-existing conditions are also part of The Affordable Care Act.

Was it an attempt to dodge the question?

Sam Seder of Majority Report discusses it.
