MSNBC Panel: GOP and Young People Could Sabotage ObamaCare

Reacting to the president’s acknowledgement of ‘glitches’ in the system, the MSNBC hosts blamed Republicans

MSNBC Panel Agrees: If ObamaCare Fails, Blame GOP and Young People (Newsbusters)

President Barack Obama touted benefits of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in a speech at the White House Thursday, claiming his signature health care bill is “doing what it’s designed to do.” The president also acknowledged the “glitches” that have impacted the implementation of the law, including his announced one-year delay of a so-called “employer mandate” requiring businesses with more than 50 employees to provide health insurance.

Alex Wagner, and most of her Thursday Now panel, came to the defense of the president over ObamaCare and its implementation, while blasting Republicans for being “reluctant to embrace” the unpopular bill. Wagner invited on White House communications director Jennifer Palmieri to tout the legislation’s purported benefits, but included no conservatives on her panel to challenge Palmieri’s claims.
