Actual question from MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts to Tennessee Rep. Marsha Blackburn: “Do you hate Obamacare more than you love your country?”

Ah, “journalism.”

In the brief clip below, Roberts also managed to squeeze in the Dems “hostage taking” and “pushing people off a cliff” talking points.

Blackburn obviously knew what to expect — after all, this is MSNBC — and wasn’t taking the bait:


ROBERTS: You don’t think it’s incredibly inappropriate to shut down our government and take all the hostages of Americans that you’ve taken? No, no, no, it’s not inappropriate because you’ve taken the government hostage through a shutdown and all the American people, you’re now walking them to a cliff, the economy, and you’re going to push them over one by one based on the fact that you don’t like the ACA. That’s all it is. You don’t like the Affordable Care Act.

BLACKBURN: Listen to yourself. Listen to yourself. We didn’t want a government shutdown. Just listen to the way you’re sounding, my goodness. We didn’t want a government shutdown. We don’t want a government default. We in the House are continuing to work through this.

Roberts will probably earn a few extra OFA “Frequent Shiller Miles” for that effort.
