Where has Chris Murphy been for the last seven years? Seriously. Maybe he missed it but the (un)Affordable Care Act has been wildly unpopular. So unpopular in fact that Democrats lost an historic number of legislative seats across the country for having passed it.
What doesn’t he understand?
I don't understand the enthusiasm among some of my colleagues for taking health care away from millions of Americans

People are enthusiastic that the law that has wrecked health insurance for millions making health care inaccessible is going away. Duh.
I don't understand the enthusiasm for providing health insurance that is so expensive, ppl can't afford healthcarehttps://t.co/uqwNyFNbzj

Or in simpler terms, the ACA sucks and we’re all glad to see it GO.
I don't understand the enthusiasm you had forcing millions of Americans to buy insurance they didn't want. RT https://t.co/iNfywkmeEb

Democrats are so enamored of themselves and of big government they don’t understand why people would be enthusiastic about said government leaving us the Hell alone.
@ChrisMurphyCT You would rather REQUIRE people to buy a product with deductibles so high it renders the product so useless that for many /1
— John (@USAJohnK) January 13, 2017
Yes. He would.
@ChrisMurphyCT Because a $7,000 policy with a $10,000 deductible is NOT health care. It's a stat for politicians, disaster for people.

C’mon, Chris is exempt from the law, he’s clueless about the costs and only knows the talking points.
You mean like when Nancy Pelosi said we must pass ACA to see what's in ACA and millions of citizens lost insurance plans? @ChrisMurphyCT

Because they aren't?
The ACA is crumbling under its own weight.
It is NOT working!

But REPUBLICANS ARE MEAN! ELEVENTY!
@ChrisMurphyCT Lousy INSURANCE isn't healthcare

They don’t get it.
@ChrisMurphyCT maybe this will encourage people to get JOBS that provide healthcare I know it's a crazy idea

CRAZY and oppressive you evil person you!
Awww, and like clockwork, unhinged, dramatic Lefties popped up on the thread to play the “Republicans hate people” card.
@ChrisMurphyCT It's not abt healthcare. It's a personal grudge against BO & his popularity with citizens.

But then there was this interesting tangent, people holding Chris accountable for not actually using Obamacare because WE pay for HIS health insurance.
@ChrisMurphyCT give us free healthcare like YOU HAVE
