REP. SEAN DUFFY: Mika, I gotta tell you, my mom is a good liberal. She loves you, she's happy Iâ€™m on your show. But I think are you a part of the problem. You are a part of the problem, because the Republican caucus sometimes can be unreasonable. But look how far we have moved. We said we want to defund it. Now we want to delay it. Now we are just going to ask for some very simple tweaks and reforms. If you called out your liberal guests, and said, why wouldn't you join Obamacare? If it's good for Americans, why isn't it good for you? If the American family can't sign up on the web site, why tax them? Thatâ€™s not right.
MIKA BRZEZINSKI: You have a lot of good questions, but as part of the problem, as you you so kindly put it, I will ask you very honestlyâ€¦
DUFFY: I like asking you questions better, Mika, by the way.
BRZEZINSKI: Thatâ€™s fine. Do you not think that members of your party, especially in Congress and in the Ted Cruz group are not imploding the Republican Party big picture? Just big picture. Politics. Put all this aside for a second. Are you guys not imploding?
DUFFY: Big picture. I think this was a horrible strategy. I came on your show and I said that. If we had allowed Obamacare to roll out and for two weeks America saw the dysfunction. Then as we roll into if debt limit and negotiate an increase, I think we would have got a one-year delay, because America would have said this is only the fair and right thing to do.
BRZEZINSKI: From a messaging standpoint, congressman, I agree with you. And your mom is fabulous, by the way.
