VIDEO: Michelle Nunn Refuses To Say If She’d Have Voted For ObamaCare

Watch Michelle Nunn equivocate in order to not answer a very straightforward question.

NBC’S KASIE HUNT: “Would you have voted for the Affordable Care Act?”

MICHELLE NUNN: “At the time the Affordable Health Care Act was passed, I was working for Points of Light. I wished that we had more people who had tried to architect a bipartisan legislation.”

HUNT: “So yes or no?”

NUNN: “So I think it’s impossible to look back retrospectively and say what would you have done if you were there?” 

MSNBC’s Morning Joe panel was none too pleased with Nunn’s efforts to be political and dodge the question.

MSNBC’s MIKA BRZEZINSKI: “I love the way Nunn schools you to say, you really can’t look back at what you would have done – you can’t look back. Actually you can but okay.”

MSNBC’s CHUCK TODD: “But I have to say I thought – boy, nothing screamed practiced politician like that answer Michelle Nunn gave on health care. It just doesn’t come across as credible. You know what’s at least more credible is saying well I supported it but I don’t like this, this, and this. At least there’s a little credibility when you give that answer. When you somehow say, well I was busy doing another job -“

BRZEZINSKI: “You can’t look back. Come on now.” 

TODD: “I think that’s a terrible answer. I think she’s going to have to get a better answer.”
