Actress Traci Law deals Sen. Rapert a smackdown on Twitter

If somebody has a bad health care outcome, Sen. Jason Rapert blames it on Obamacare. Underlying facts don't matter. Not even if it's an insurance company game — say the coverage-avoidance that led to one of the best parts of Obamacare to begin with.

Yesterday, Rapert thought he'd found a sympathizer for a bit of anti-Obamacare propaganda in Traci Law, the actress. He retweeted something she'd written. She was not amused by being co-opted by someone with a polar opposite political view.  A smackdown by her followed. Some of it is shown above.

You can find much of the back and forth here. Including Rapert's protests and standard complaint about those meanie liberals.
