CNN Political Reporter: Democrats Still Own Health Care

Nia-Malika Henderson said that House Democrats still own the issue of health care, despite House Republicans repealing Obamacare on Thursday.

CNN’s senior political reporter Nia-Malika Henderson said that Democrats, not Republicans, still own the issue of health care in the upcoming 2018 midterm elections during a panel on Inside Politics.

CNN’s John King asked the Inside Politics panel whether ownership of health care passed hands from Democrats to Republicans following Thursday’s vote by the House to repeal the controversial law.

“I don’t think so,” Nia-Malika Henderson told the group. Henderson pointed out that Democrats still don’t have a clear message regarding Obamacare and that they have never been good at selling it to the American people.

“They still have to figure out who the candidates are in these different districts. Is the resistance real? How do they get their base out? They’ve never been good over these last cycles in terms of health care,” Henderson concluded.
