CNN's King Plays Up CBO's ObamaCare Projection; Wonders Why Dems Won't 'Go On Offense'

On the 15 April 2014 edition of New Day, CNN's John King hyped the Congressional Budget Office's projection about ObamaCare – that "yes, ObamaCare is expensive, but less expensive than they thought – by about $104 billion over 10 years. That's a decent junk of change." King asserted that the health care issue is "the big domestic challenge for the President and for Democrats this election year: that is...trying to defend it – you could say now, maybe, bragging – about ObamaCare."

The journalist then expressed his bewilderment that Democrats weren't playing up this CBO projection:

JOHN KING: Where is the Democratic super PAC to run this message you see on the screen – to say, hey, Republicans were wrong – we got the enrollment up; it's not as expensive as we thought. Why won't Democrats, Jonathan, decide, in this tough environment, the only way to change it is to go on offense?
