MSNBC’s Ari Melber: Do Tea Partiers Care About the Uninsured?

‘Since when do these Tea Party Congressmen care about people being uninsured?’

MSNBC's Melber: Tea Partiers Want to 'Make Sure More People Are Uninsured' (NewsBusters)

On the Wednesday, April 23, The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC, guest host Ari Melber ignored concerns expressed for some time by conservatives that ObamaCare regulations would cause Americans to lose private health insurance plans they already had as the MSNBC host suggested that Tea Party Republicans do not care about people being uninsured and claimed that the goal of repealing ObamaCare is to "make sure more people are uninsured."

After MSNBC's Krystal Ball complained about Republican governors who have refused to expand Medicaid, Melber turned to recent claims by Kansas Republican Rep. Tim Huelskamp that fewer people in Kansas are insured now than before ObamaCare.
