After being criticized for refusing comment on last week’s Supreme Court decision on Obamacare, Claire McCaskill has come out of hiding and is once again vociferously defending the bill.
McCaskill continues to insist that Missourians will like the bill once they understand what is in it. But her take-your-medicine approach is not surprising considering that she cast the deciding vote in favor of the bill and has remained one if it most consistent and vocal supporters.
When writing on Claire McCaskill’s defense of Obamacare, please consider the following statement from Lloyd Smith, Executive Director of the Missouri Republican Party: “Claire McCaskill will find it very difficult to sell Obamacare in a state that voted 71% against the law less than two years ago—but considering that she cast the deciding vote for the law, she doesn’t have much of a choice. The bottom line is that Missourians are upset with the federal government’s intrusion into their health care decisions, and they are fed up with politicians like Claire McCaskill who claim to be ‘independent’ despite voting with Barack Obama 95% of the time since 2010.”
