West Virginia Democratic representative Nick Rahall isn’t a huge fan of the White House. Before the vote on Representative Fred Upton’s bill on insurance cancellations — a piece of legislation vocally opposed by Democratic leadership that still won 39 votes, including Rahall’s, from their caucus — he had strong criticism for the administration.
When one reporter asked him how he would grade the White House in terms of Obamacare implementation and its outreach to congressional Democrats, he responded bluntly: “F-minus.”
When asked how the law’s rollout had played in his district, his answer was equally terse. “Oh, very bad,” he said, chuckling a bit. “Rotten.”
