Rockefeller Says Race Drives GOP Opposition to Obamacare

Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) suggested that President Obama's race "factored into opposition to the Affordable Care Act, sparking outrage on the part of one of his Republican colleagues," National Journal reports.

Said Rockefeller: "I think it's very important to take a long view at what's going on. 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."
