I think most likely they wanted to seem as if they had a unified front but now that Obama is out of office more and more Democrats are coming forward and calling out Obamacare and it’s many failures.
As Written by Ted Goodman for the Daily Caller:
Minnesota Democratic Rep. Tim Walz was captured on video conceding that the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare, has failed his constituents.
Walz, who is running for Minnesota Governor, also revealed that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) has been pushing for members to defend the ACA, asking them to ignore Obamacare’s “warts.” The video, posted to YouTube Monday, was taken May 12 according to a source familiar with its origin.
“… that’s why the message, and we were talking about the DNC, the DNC wanted the message to be that the ACA is doing fine and don’t talk about the warts, and I said I can’t do that because it’s failing my constituents in a lot of ways,” Walz can be heard saying in the short video clip……..
