HuffPost: Hillary Clinton, Ron Johnson Engage In Heated Exchange At Benghazi Hearing

“With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans,” Clinton responded, raising her voice at Johnson, who continued to interrupt her. “Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk last night who decided to kill some Americans?

I really really love her. #Hilary2016

Clinton continued, defending the State Department’s efforts in the wake of the assault.
“Honestly, I will do my best to answer your questions about this, but the fact is people were trying their best in real time to get to the best information,” she said, before blasting the senator’s line of questioning. “Give me a break, Senator Johnson.

politico: Obamacare 2.0: Judgment awaits

Among the unanswered questions: Will the states do their part to make it work, or will they fight the law? Will employers keep covering their workers, or find ways around it?
