Sen. Harry Reid: "Obamacare Has Been Wonderful For America" (RealClearPolitics)

SEN. HARRY REID (D-NV): If we were in the courtroom, I would object to-- your question. 'Cause there are so many different questions. But I'll try to answer. First of all-- Obamacare, whatever comes up, the Republicans throw that at me. You realize, they have voted to repeal it 40 times? What's happened? 40 times, of course, it's failed.

Obamacare has been wonderful for America. 6 million seniors have h-- wellness checks now. 3.1 million young people are now-- now have insurance. Insurance can't rip off people anymore. That's why people got millions of dollars of refunds last year. If you have a preexisting disability, you're covered. They should just get real and understand this is a m-- law that's important. And we-- we nee-- they need to work with us to improve it.
