Wasserman Schultz: Americans "Overwhelmingly" Support ObamaCare

DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz says Americans "overwhelmingly support" entitlements that are included in Obamacare.

Wasserman Schultz also calls the GOP field "extreme" and says they want to "tell women what we have to do with our bodies and control when and whether we could have a family by not allowing us access to contraception."

Wasserman Schultz: Well if you didn't know, because if you dig down and ask whether Americans think that insurance companies should be able to drop them or deny them coverage for pre-existing conditions, they say no, overwhelmingly. If you dig down and ask them if they think young adults should be able to stay on their parents' insurance until they're 26, they say, yes, they should. If you ask seniors whether they think the donut hole should be reopened and that coverage gap in prescription drugs in Medicare should be remain open, they say, no, of course not.

The pieces of healthcare reform, when you ask Americans about them, they overwhelmingly support them and that is exactly what the Republicans on the stage last night would repeal, lock, stock, and barrel and go back to putting the insurance industry in charge of our health care decisions. And then to add insult to injury, they would tell women what we have to do with our bodies and control when and whether we could have a family by not allowing us access to contraception without a co-pay and without a deductible. That's why I say the one-word application to that field is extreme.
