A prominent foe of the Affordable Care Act — also known as Obamacare — got a lesson on Twitter Wednesday when she attempted an online poll about repeal and didn’t get the response she no doubt expected.
Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) made an appearance Tuesday on CNN where she was put on the spot when she claimed that gutting the Office of Congressional Ethics was “draining the swap.”
Perhaps to take the sting out of that star-turn — particularly after the GOP backed off the bill — Blackburn returned to what is her strong point: bashing Obamacare.
On Twitter she wrote, “Do you support the repeal of Obamacare? RT if you do, and share what you want to see as the replacement,” accompanied by a poll.
What she got back was 84 percent of poll-takers saying they didn’t want to see Obamacare repealed.
Then came the ridicule and the advice.
