Arianna On Olbermann: GOP Push For Health Care Repeal 'Purely About Changing The Subject'

Arianna joined Keith Olbermann on MSNBC's "Countdown" Thursday night to assess House Minority Leader John Boehner's renewed call to repeal health care reform.

"This is purely about changing the subject," Arianna told Olbermann, noting that repeal is extremely unlikely given that Republicans would need to build a coalition strong enough to override President Obama's veto. Besides, she said, the health care overhaul has only gained popular appeal since its passage in March.

"The usual refrain that Congressman Boehner uses, which is 'the will of the people, the Democrats did not listen to the will of the people,' will be very hard for him to continue with," she said.
