The conversation grew contentious on "Starting Point" this morning, when panelists Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and NewYorker.com writer Richard Socarides sparred over Congress's efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
"What the American people want to hear Congress say is that Obamacare was a mistake," Rep. Blackburn says.
"This is political theater in an election year," Socarides says.
"Not at all. It gives us the opportunity to start fresh with a clean slate," Blackburn adds.
"But you don't think this is going to be repealed, right? we know this...The Senate is controlled by the President's party. This is the President's signature legislation. You're making a point," Socarides adds.
"I'm doing this to repeal it and to get rid of it...I wish we'd go do it every single day," Blackburn says.
