Joy Reid: Republicans Are Trying To Repeal ACA For Their Donors

"They want their tax cuts, and they want them now!"

We're not used to them coming right out and admitting it like that, so I wanted to make sure people saw this AMJoy clip of Joy Reid talking about why Republicans are trying to repeal Obamacare:

"Cory Gardner, the Colorado senator running the reelect committee, the Republican senator committee to reelect senators in 2018, admitted that what happened was, senators went home and rather than, you know, meet with their constituents and have town halls, they met with the donors --and the donors are livid," she said.

"The donors are demanding that Republican senators and Republican member of the House deliver on two things. They want their tax cuts and they want them now, and they want Obamacare gone."

They have their marching orders. Now we have ours.
