This week on To The Contrary, our panelists discuss a surprising age split over Obamacare, why mixed-race couples may be marriage averse, and whether we'll see a woman elected President in 2016.
On the panel this week: Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC), Democratic Commentator Megan Beyer, Red Alert Politics Editor Francesca Chambers, and The Heritage Foundation’s Genevieve Wood.
Here are some of their thoughts:
Del. Norton: Young people have "[ignored] the 40th Republican repeal of Healthcare and [decided] that Obamacare is good for your health.
Genevieve Wood: "Obamacare is not free healthcare. It’s costing far more, everywhere you look, than Obama promised.”
Francesca Chambers says she'd rather pay the $95 fee to opt out of Obamacare than pay $75 a month to enroll.
Megan Beyer: "[Obamacare] is going to succeed or fail based on what these young, healthy people do.”
Francesca Chambers thinks that interracial couples not getting married as often as others "is much more of a cultural issue than a racial issue"
Del. Norton: "Most people still are looking for mates within their own culture, which means their own racial group for this country.”
Megan Beyer: "I love the fact that the relationships young people have [are chosen] without looking at race.”
Emily's List is a pro-choice PAC trying to get a Democratic woman elected to the presidency in 2016.
Megan Bayer: “What I love about Emily’s List is that we really need women to have each other’s backs.”
Genevieve Wood: “The Susan B. Anthony List tries to identify conservative female candidates for president.”
Francesca Chambers says that while the Republican party previously had not done a great job of recruiting women, it's doing much better now.
