Democrat Senator Says People Who Don’t Like ObamaCare Are Racists

At a hearing earlier today, soon-to-be-retired (maybe not soon enough) Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) spoke his mind: people who oppose ObamaCare are racists. Here’s what Rockefeller said:

ROCKEFELLER: “I’ll be able to dig up some emails that make part of the Affordable Care Act that doesn’t look good-especially from people who made up their mind that they don’t want it to work because they don’t like the president. Maybe he’s of the wrong color, something of that sort. I’ve seen a lot of that and I know a lot of that to be true. It’s not something you’re meant to talk about in public but it’s something I’m talking about in public because that is very true.”
