Mark Sanford and Elizabeth Colbert Busch faced off tonight in their first and only debate before South Carolina’s 1st district special election, and Democrat Colbert Busch appeared to distance herself from the Affordable Care Act, calling it expensive and “extremely problematic” — a quote which certainly got the attention of the press.

Colbert Busch distances herself from national democrats on health care. "Obamacare is extremely problematic. It is expensive."—

Just last week, the South Carolina General Assembly voted 65–34 to pass the Freedom of Health Care Protection Act, which empowers the state attorney general to take legal action if he or she “has reasonable cause to believe that a person or business is being harmed by implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.” The bill also gives “a dollar-for-dollar tax deduction to anyone assessed a federal tax penalty for failure to conform to the ObamaCare mandates.”
In that environment, is it any surprise that Colbert Busch seeks to put a little distance between herself and Obamacare?
Thing is, Dems know Colbert-Busch is only saying this stuff about ObamaCare to get votes. They know she’s lying.—
