MSNBC host Ed Schultz laughed off conservatives’ defiance on Thursday following the end to the government shutdown — particularly Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R-FL) insistence that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) would provoke an “all-out revolt” from Americans.
“Revolt? Who’s gonna be revolting?” Schultz asked. “[Sen.] Ted Cruz (R-FL)? Sarah Palin? Minorities across America who are going to love Obamacare? Small businesses who can’t wait to sign up for it? People who don’t have it — like 40 million? Is this revolt gonna come from 40 million people across America? Is this revolt gonna come from people who can actually not get kicked off the insurance rolls because they got sick?”
