GOP Rep Spars With CNN Host: ‘You’re Beautiful But You Have To Be Honest’ (VIDEO)

Rep. Todd Rotika (R-IN) got into a heated exchange with “CNN Newsroom” host Carol Costello Thursday over whether health care reform should be part of debate on the federal government’s budget.

“Carol, do you have any idea how much this law is going to cost?” Rotika said of Obamacare. “It’s an insidious law because it’s a lie. It says it’s going to be affordable.” 

“Do you know how much it costs every day the government is partially shut down?” Costello responded. “You are costing taxpayers millions of dollars.”

The two repeated their positions on the issue until Rotika said “we keep going in circles.”

“You’re part of the problem, the media is part of the problem,” Rokita said.

“Come on, that’s so easy. That’s so easy,” Costello protested.

“Carol, you’re beautiful but you have to be honest as well,” Rokita said.
