In a video captured by American Bridge, a liberal opposition research group, Walberg was pressed on the health care reform law during a town hall meeting in Saline, Mich. One of the attendees told Walberg that he would start a business soon because of the flexibility that Obamacare had afforded him, concluding that "sitting there and repealing it when there are things that could be done to fix it is wrong."

"That's not to say that the ACA hasn't helped a few people," Walberg replied. "I've met those people. I've also met people who are now being helped by being subsidized who say I never want to be subsidized by the government."

"I appreciate the fact that it works for you," he continued. "I'm not saying that it hasn't worked for some people."
