Wasserman Schultz: People Will Not Let Go of ObamaCare Once They Experience Its Benefits

‘The tea partyers are desperate to prevent people from realizing the full scope of the benefits to their lives that ObamaCare will provide’

Wasserman Schultz on ObamaCare: Once People Receive Benefits 'They're Not Going To Want To Let It Go' (RealClearPolitics)

CHRIS HAYES: Is there some point where there is victory here? Ae we doomed to be fighting about Obamacare until I am an old man?

REP. DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ (D-FL): I don't think so. In fact, that is exactly why the tea party Republicans are hell-bent on doing everything they can to try to stop Obamacare from going online on October 1st. Because even as Ted Cruz said the other day, this is the real transparent deal here, Chris, is that they know that once people realize the benefits of Obamacare, once they can no longer be dropped or denied coverage for pre-existing conditions, once they are able to fully benefit from the coverage that will be provided, they're not going to want to let it go.

They're going to realize that the bogeyman that the Republicans and the tea party have put up was just that. it was as fictional as the bogeyman of our childhood.
