Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee appeared on CNN’s Starting Point Thursday morning to defend President Obama’s decision to accept super PAC money as part of his reelection campaign.
Critics have accused the president of “flip-flopping” on the issue in that he has spoken out against the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling. Also, President Obama has said that he would support a constitutional amendment making super PACs illegal.
Rep. Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) said that the Democratic Party cannot “unilaterally disarm” in the face of the millions that Republicans have already spent on the race. “We have to play by the rules that exist right now,” she said.
