Guest To Chris Hayes: Stick To The Facts, Don't Personally Attack Me


CHRIS HAYES, MSNBC: No, what you are doing is you are working backwards from opposition to the law. Jennifer Stefano, Americans for Prosperity, was not doing anything to get people health insurance, was not concerned about the plight of people on Medicaid.


HAYES: Was not sponsoring bills before Congress, was not trying to get people health care, what happens now is that any part of the bill, any part of the law that can be picked apart to try to destroy it, suddenly the great saviors of the working poor, or people on Medicaid, are people opposed to the law. But the fact of the matter is, that is not the animating thing that is making people get up in the morning and go to work war ObamaCare, it's not like you care about people on Medicaid or that's the thing that got you into politics. And I don't understand, why not just be honest about it? This is honesty.

STEFANO: Can I answer?

HAYES: Why not just be honest about it.

STEFANO: You know nothing about me, you have no idea what I think in the morning.

HAYES: No, we have talked before.

STEFANO: You don't know what I wake up and fight for and believe in. You know nothing about me or my family.

HAYES: So you were working on Medicaid expansion?

STEFANO: You don’t know if I was born and raised in a trailer park. You don’t know what I did and how dare you, like Harry Reid, try to undercut the voice of a woman simply because she disagrees with you. Now you may not like where I'm coming from on public policy, but you have no right to undercut my voice, as a woman, I have worked very hard. I’ve taken on Republicans--

HAYES: I put you on my TV show, I'm not undercutting your voice.

STEFANO: You're undercutting my voice, because you're making it personal. Saying I wake up to do this. And this is what I--you have absolutely no idea about me or my life.

HAYES: What do you want to see? How do we get people health insurance?

STEFANO: Stick to the facts, talk about facts, logic and reason.How dare you personally attack me and what I believe. Typical because you can’t win brother. Unfortunate.
