BET Political Wire: The NRA Robocalls Newtown Residents
Obamacare is causing fury among Republicans for reasons that have nothing to do with health care. Like the Motor Voter Act, which enables people to register to vote while getting a driver's license, the Affordable Care Act allows people to register on forms used to apply for Obamacare subsidies. White House spokesman Jay Carney defended the provision, noting that Medicare applications include a similar option. "The linkage of, you know, checking off whether or not you want to register to vote goes back to a 1993 law regarding Medicaid," he said.
