Harold Ford Jr: ‘I Was Disappointed’ With Dem Senators Bashing Health Care Bill (The Washington Free Beacon)

Former Rep. Harold Ford, Jr. (D., Tenn.) critiqued Democrats on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Wednesday for not recognizing problems with the Affordable Care Act and for not helping Republicans solve them in the new health care bill.

Host Joe Scarborough said that the Republican health care bill would "never pass without Democratic support."

"Remember Obama started off with this health care plan. So we have to expand accessibility, expand affordability and we’re gonna cut costs while we’re doing it," Ford responded. "The problem with Obamacare is that the premiums are going up too fast."
