>> democrats won't lose seats next year over obama care?

>> i don't think you can tell what will happen next year, but i will tell you this. democrats stand tall in support of the affordable care act . we have great candidates who are running who are concerned about our economy and our concern that the government was shut down because of a whim on the part of republicans costing us $25 billion to our economy and 4.6% of our gdp growth . they're concerned about overwhelming the people with immigration reform support, background check support, ending discrimination for people in the workplace. all these kinds of concerns are concerns of the american people . jobs will be the major issue in the campaign as they always are. and this is an issue that has to be dealt with. but it doesn't mean, oh, it's a political issue so we're going to run away from it. no, it's too valuable for the american people . what is important about it is that the american people are well served, not who gets reelected.
