"It isnt about the administration, and members, it shouldnt be about this administration at the state level nor should it be about the federal administration when it comes to Obamacare, but in fact it is," Peterson declared on the floor of the state senate. "And why is that? Why is that? I have talked to so many members both in the House and the Senate, and you know what? You ready? You ready for what it comes down to? It is not about how many federal dollars we can receive, it is not about that. You ready? It is about race. I know nobody wants to talk about that. It is about the race of this African-American president.
Now, Peterson, the chair of the state party, is denying she called anyone racist. "I didn't call anyone a racist," she told a TV news outlet.
"I'm not stepping away from anything that I said on the floor. I didn't call anyone a racist. I referenced some of the conversations that I'd had with colleagues that, you know, shared with me that one of the factors, it's not always the factor. I didn't say that everybody's decision was based on that. But certainly one of the factors was politics around it and race, the issue of race. So, that has kind of stirred up some folks that are not, I guess, accustomed to having that conversation openly but I think that it's time that we not ignore the issue," said Peterson.
Peterson has refused to apologize for her comments, according to a local news affiliate:

Peterson is just another two-bit ‘RAT liar.
RATs don’t apologize. RATs stick to their lies til their dying day.
What’s so amazing about a liberal changing reality, history or facts? It’s just their way.
Yes. I totally believe members of Congress walked up to you and said “you know... I just might support that Obamacare, the President is just so...black “
Resign or be removed.
Here’s an opportunity to listen to some common sense for a change . . .Ben Carson in person October 4, Midwest Conference Center in Northlake, IL
The conversation -- I get to yell insults and call white people names. They have to sit down and shut up and take it. That's the conversation.
She’s been called out on it — by at least one fellow Democrat (also black), Governor Jindal, and she’s running away from news reporters here in the state who are asking for her to talk about what she said.... I think she knows full well she stepped in it and now doesn’t want to face the music.
What she said was so much worse than what Todd Akin did! This woman INTENDED to say EXACTLY what she said! He merely flubbed a question..badly!
She called it Obamacare.
Here’s the link showing some of the blowback she’s getting:
She’s a racist and her colors are showing. Glad she’s getting called on it. Clearly she’s running from accountability - as shown in the video.
“Are you ready?”
“Are you ready?
“Are you ready?”
Jumping jacks on a pogo stick lady, spit it out already!
“Newt Gingrich support a similar bill to Obamacare”
Yeah, and that bill was terrible legislation, too.
What a twit.
If this woman loves Obamacare so much, I want to see HER be covered by it, and her family, and her children..oh yeah I forgot, they are exempt gee I wonder why
She said it, and doesn't have the stones to just stand up and say either "Yeah, I said it and meant it " or "It was a mistake. Sorry."
What a spineless jellyfish.
We have a bunch of teenagers running our country at every level from the president and his thugs on down to the lowest county official. They do bad things, get caught and deny.
She’s got alzheimers then and that reason right there for her being removed from office.
Brain does not connect with reality.
facts are no longer facts with htese freakin creeps- all they have to say is “Nuh uh- I did not” OR “I can’t recall” and the msm treats them as though they are saints who can’t lie even if they wrre forced to lie
