ATLANTA - Channel 2's political reporter Lori Geary sat down with Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., and chairwoman of the Democratic National Convention, who was in town Tuesday to raise money for the National and State Democratic parties, telling Geary she considers Georgia in play for Democrats next year and she's here to prove
Geary also asked Wasserman Schultz to weigh in on UPS' recent decision to exclude working spouses from heath care coverage, due in part to the Affordable Care Act.
A spokesman for UPS said rising health care costs over the last eight years and cost increases associated with the Affordable Care Act weighed into the company's decision.
Wasserman Schultz lashed out.
"We've seen really significant cost decreases, so I don't find it credible for UPS to blame Obamacare, especially if they acknowledge they're had significant increases in their health insurance premiums over the last eight years. Sounds to me like they're using Obamacare as an excuse," Wasserman Schultz said.
