Arianna: The Public Has Lost Faith In Government

Posted: Updated:

Arianna appeared on MSNBC's election-night panel to discuss the GOP's major congressional gains in light of exit poll responses.

"Nine out of ten Americans worried about the economy, 90 percent worried about the future," Arianna told cohost Keith Olbermann. The Obama administration, she said, "completely miscalculated when it put health care ahead of jobs ... and the inevitable happened. The public lost faith in Democrats using government to do good things. And the fact that health care is going to kick in in 2014 for most people wasn't a consolation prize."
