At a hearing of the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, And Transportation on 5/21/14, Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) said that people oppose ObamaCare because of the color of President Obama's skin.
SEN. JAY ROCKEFELLER (D-WV): Iâ€™ll be able to dig up some emails that make part of the Affordable Care Act that doesnâ€™t look good-especially from people who made up their mind that they donâ€™t want it to work because they donâ€™t like the president. Maybe heâ€™s of the wrong color, something of that sort. Iâ€™ve seen a lot of that and I know a lot of that to be true. Itâ€™s not something youâ€™re meant to talk about in public but itâ€™s something Iâ€™m talking about in public because that is very true.
