On Tuesday evening, Fox liberal contributor Kirsten Powers echoed the sentiments of National Journal’s Ron Fournier who explained how he has grown weary of defending the Affordable Care Act during its troubled rollout. Fournier first expressed such lamentations on Fox’s Special Report and again in a Tuesday column entitled “Why I’m Getting Sick of Defending Obamacare.”
“I’m going to say amen, brother, because it’s exactly how I feel,” Powers said on Wednesday’s Special Report. “People who have supported the law, who support universal health care, are constantly put in the position of having to defend this president, who has really incompetently put this together, rolled it out, and that’s why he has to do this. It’s why he has to keep doing this, because it’s not working.”
“It’s now gotten to the point where it seems like there’s an exemption made for pretty much everybody except for individuals,” she said. “A lot of people who have really been screwed over by the law, you know, who are left without insurance or with extremely expensive insurance.”
