Wasserman Schultz on Obamacare Failure: It's All The Tea Party

Democratic Party Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz sat down with Candy Crowley on CNN's State of the Union Sunday morning to discuss Obamacare failures. Like a mantra, Wasserman Schultz proceeded to repeat the terms "Tea Party," "extremists," and "war on women," even when those answers had nothing to do with the question being asked.

When asked about if there was a fix for Obamacare's problems given Virginia exit polls reporting most voters opposed the bill, Wasserman Schultz answered in part:

And what Election Day this past Tuesday in Virginia, a very competitive state showed you, is that when the voters are presented with a candidate who focuses on creating jobs and investing in education and working together, versus a candidate who doubles down on the politics of shutdown, who embraced Tea Party extremism, who was a leader in the war on women---They are going to have the same choice all across the country with Tea Party governors who were elected in 2010 against similar candidates who will give them a similar choice. 

After Wasserman Schultz stated that she expects that Democrats will run on a platform of Obamacare in 2014, Crowley asked how many people in her home state lost their insurance because of the bill. According to the Florida Representative, nobody lost their insurance -- they were being "transitioned." She did not explain that they would be transitioned to more expensive insurance plans they didn't want in the first place. 

When asked a final time whether she believed that Democrats will win if they run on Obamacare again in 2014, Wasserman Schultz responded:

I think because Americans reject the Tea Party extremism, they want us to focus on creating jobs and working together...

There's no question: Wasserman Schultz is on message.
