Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., promised a chat about the Affordable Care Act before an appearance Friday at the Kansas City, Mo. Chamber of Commerce


“I’m on my way to the @kcchamber to discuss how defunding #ObamaCare boosting #AmericanEnergy will help create #jobs,” he tweeted.

Blunt talked about energy — he thinks improving energy independence will provide a dramatic boost to the American economy — but Obamacare, funded or unfunded, didn’t come up.

He never talked about it, and no one asked him about it.

The health exchanges go into effect Oct. 1. We’ve got a story about it planned for the weekend.

Blunt did talk with reporters about the Syrian problem: “I haven’t made up my mind on this yet,” he said. “We have two really bad decisions to make here.”
