Democrat Senator Al Franken of Minnesota has a lot of nerve. In an interview on CNN last night, he blamed the rising cost of Obamacare premiums on Republicans.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
Franken: Americans Should Blame Republicans for Rising Obamacare Premiums
Sen. Al Franken (D., Minn.) blamed Republicans for the major premiums hikes under Obamacare set to hit next year while speaking with CNN’s Jake Tapper on Thursday.
Tapper told Franken a story about a Minnesota relative of his who voted for President Obama four years ago but cast his ballot for President-elect Donald Trump in the 2016 election due to skyrocketing Obamacare premiums.
“How much do you think Obamacare might have ultimately hurt Hillary Clinton?” Tapper asked.
Franken agreed that Obamacare contributed to Clinton’s loss and then blamed Republicans for the health care premium hikes.
“The people they should be mad at, really, are Republican officeholders who refused to do anything other than vote to repeal the [Affordable Care Act],” he said.
Watch the video:
Lots of people believe the Democrats stole the election for Al Franken by manufacturing votes.
And he was the deciding vote for Obamacare!
Democrats own Obamacare. Franken has no right to point fingers!
