House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told State of the Union’s Candy Crowley Sunday morning that Democrats were openly embracing the success of the Affordable Care Act, and that the candidates who were distancing themselves from the law were the exception.
“7 million people signed up!” Pelosi said. “The Congress of the United States wrote the bill, the members are proud of what they’ve done, are happy to not run away from what we have done. We are proud of what we accomplished.”
Crowley asked about certain members in vulnerable districts who were crab-walking away from the bill, largely by proposing “fixes” to the legislation.
