Thomas Roberts asks GOP Rep if she hates ‘Obamacare more than’ she loves the country

MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts tried Tuesday to back Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn into a corner by asking her an inflammatory and partisan question.

“Let me ask you, when it comes to Obamacare, do you hate Obamacare more than you love your country?” Roberts asked the Tennessee representative.

“I’ve got to tell you something. I think that comments like that, that you are making, are just incredibly inappropriate,” Blackburn fired back.

Roberts came back with some sharp words for the congresswoman.

“You don’t think it’s incredibly inappropriate to shut down our government and take all the hostages of Americans that you’ve taken?” Roberts asked.

“No, it’s not inappropriate because you took the government hostage through the shutdown and all the American people, you’re now walking them to a cliff, the economy, and you’re going to push them over one by one based on the fact that you don’t like the ACA.”

“That’s all it is. You don’t like the Affordable Care Act,” he added.

“Listen to yourself!” Blackburn said. “Just listen to the way you’re sounding. My goodness! We didn’t want a government shutdown. We don’t want a government default.”
