Over the past several years, Claire McCaskill has been one of Obamacareâ??s most outspoken advocates. In 2008 she was the first “moderate” US Senator to throw her support behind Barack Obama. But since the Supreme Courtâ??s decision Thursday, she has remained uncharacteristically silent.
Now, one Missouri media outlet is airing its frustration with her refusal to comment. In a lengthy segment, Columbiaâ??s KOMU reported that McCaskillâ??s office did not return several calls for comment, noting her deep ties to Barack Obama and her longtime support of the bill.
