Democratic Senator Struggles to Recall Why He Likes Obamacare

After host Chris Wallace suggested the confirmation of Health and Human Services Secretary nominee Sylvia Burwell would provide congressional Republicans as another opportunity to shed light on the failings of the unpopular law, Whitehouse said he'd welcome that conversation.
