Obama Praises Markey for Health Care Vote on ‘Daily Show’


President Barack Obama singled out Rep. Betsy Markey:

“There are a whole bunch of Democrats — guys like Tom Perriello in Virginia, or John Boccieri in Ohio, or Betsy Markey in Colorado — who are basically in Republican districts, you know. They won in the big surge we had in 2008, they knew that it was going to be a tough battle, that these are generally pretty conservative districts, and yet still went ahead and did what they thought was right. And my hope in this election is that people who vote on the basis of what they think is right, and have integrity, and aren’t just thinking about the next election but are thinking about the next generation, that they are awarded.”
