Democratic Senator Mark Warner (D., Va.) refused to elaborate on the 250,000 Virginians that will lose their health care plans due to Obamacare during Tuesday’s Senate debate against Republican Ed Gillespie.
Moderator Karen Tumulty asked Warner to respond to the taxpayers losing their plans, but Warner did not acknowledge the cancellations. Rather, he touted the elements of Obamacare that he believes Virginians support.
"Virginians want us to fix health care," Warner said.
The incumbent then listed off the provisions of Affordable Care Act legislation that he and other Democrats support, including coverage for pre-existing conditions, equal costs for men and women, and the ability to keep children on their parents' plans until age 26.
