WASHINGTON — The leaders of the Democratic Party are in denial over the future of their party related to anti-ObamaCare sentiment and polling in the U.S.
Reuters reported that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, said that her Democratic Party members are not panicking or abandoning ObamaCare.
Nancy Pelosi, appearing this past Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” with David Gregory, said, “There’s a lot of whoop-de-do and ado about what’s happening”.
She continued and said, “It doesn’t mean: Oh, it’s a political issue, so we’re going to run away from it. No. It’s too valuable for the American people”. She felt strongly enough about it to say even more, “I don’t think you can tell what will happen next year, but I will tell you this: Democrats stand tall in support of the Affordable Care Act”.
Her comments came after 39 House Democrats broke ranks with the party to vote with the Republicans, who presented a “Keep Your Plan” bill in the House of Representatives this past week. This pressure comes as Obama’s job approval rating has dipped to 39% and there is low favorability of ObamaCare among Americans.
