Clyburn Plays Race Card: Calls Obamacare the 21st Century Civil Rights Act & Only Racists Would Want to Repeal It (Video)

Clyburn Plays the Race Card–
As Republicans get set to repeal the job-killing Obamacare bill today, Democratic Leader James Clyburn (D-SC) invoked the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and called Obamacare the Civil Rights Act of 21st Century.
In other words… Only racists would want to repeal it.

James Clyburn:

Doctor King also taught us that the time is always right to do right. After nearly a century of debate last March the time was right. And getting rid of these discriminatory practices was the right thing to do(?) And, that is the reason I call the bill the Civil Rights Act of the 21st Century. Interestingly, today we hear the same rhetoric about repeal of patients rights that we heard regarding voting rights.
