The U.S. Supreme Court made a landmark ruling yesterday, upholding President Barack Obama’s controversial health care legislation, or “Obamacare.”
This morning, Rep. Phil Gingrey, who is a doctor and the spokesperson for the Doctors Caucus in Congress, tells Ashleigh Banfield that he wants a full repeal of the president's law.
“The law may not be unconstitutional, but it is un-American,” Gingrey tells Ashleigh.
According to CNN polling, the majority of Americans oppose Obamacare. However, this is not due to the fact that they dislike the legislation or want it repealed.
On Early Start today, Ashleigh breaks down the opposing 51% to clarify that 13% of that figure is attributed to people who oppose the law because it is not liberal enough. Accordingly, only 34% of Americans oppose what the law represents.
Watch the clip above to see things get heated when Ashleigh asks Dr. Gingrey about these stats.
