MSNBC's Alter: GOP Already 'Lost the War' on ObamaCare

'We need to distinguish between those who want to fix ObamaCare and those who want to destroy ObamaCare'

ALTER: "This is a fiasco right now. We need to distinguish between those who want to fix ObamaCare and those who want to destroy ObamaCare. And Congresswoman Ellmers and her colleagues in the Republican Party, they are not asking questions with the intent of making the program work better, making it easier to get on ObamaCare, get through on the computer. If that were to happen, popularity would increase, which is the last thing they want. So this goes to motive. Their motive is to undermine and kill this program. The problem we have is that they don't have the votes to do that. That won't happen until 2017 at the very earliest and very likely not then because by then the program will be entrenched and popular. So they have lost the war and are trying to win a couple of battles in the meantime."
