Rep. Duffy presses MSNBC's Brzezinski: 'You are part of the problem'Submitted by barracuda_trader on Tue, 10/22/2013 - 01:11
Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wis.) on Wednesday called out MSNBC's "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezkinski for being "part of the problem" causing Republicans to face backlash for their opposition of ObamaCare.
Duffy scolded Brzezinski for not pressing Democratic lawmakers on why they aren't enrolling in the healthcare exchanges if they believe the healthcare law is beneficiary for all Americans.
"If it's good enough for the American people, it should be good enough for the president, Michelle, their kids, my family," Duffy said. "[Lawmakers and their families] shouldn't have their own gold-plated healthcare plan."
Duffy praised GOP members of Congress for their willingness to compromise with Democrats on their opposition of ObamaCare. He said although they first wanted to defund the reform, they now only want to make minor changes.
"Mika, I've got to tell you, my mom is a good liberal and she loves you and she's happy I'm on your show, but I've got to tell you, you're part of the problem," Duffy said.
"You're part of the problem because the Republican caucus can sometimes be unreasonable, but look how far we've moved," he said. "We wanted to defund [ObamaCare], we wanted to delay it, now we are just going to ask for some very simple tweaks and reforms.
Brzezinski suggested that Duffy has a bigger issue on hand, and that's the possible implosion of the Republican Party.
