MSNBC Anchor Ed Schultz: The Obamacare Decision Actually Helps Mitt Romney

Liberal MSNBC anchor Ed Schultz had somewhat of a surprising take on the the Affordable Care Act being upheld by the Supreme Court on Thursday. He said it’s actually¬†good for Mitt Romney.¬†

Although, Schultz’s reasoning falls in line with his viewpoint. Here’s what he had to say:

“I think the politics of this in this campaign season makes it a heck of a lot easier for Mitt Romney,” Schultz said. “He doesn’t have to parcel out what he’s for or against or even take a position. He can now just run against what he calls ‘Obamacare.’

“So, the Romney campaign just got a little bit easier for him today, because they can run against the whole thing. Boehner has already said they are going to have a vote to repeal it in the house July 9, which is going to be more political theatre.”

In the end, he said it was good for both sides. It was a win for President Barack Obama, he said. But he noted that it will be an opportunity for Romney to run with.
