During Wednesday's Obamacare hearing before the House Energy and Commerce Committee, Rep. Jan Schakowsky, Democrat from Illinois, had some pointed advice for Republicans still working to undermine and repeal Obamacare: Get over it.

"You know, I want to say to my colleagues," Schakowsky said, "after a three and a half year campaign to repeal, to discredit, to even shut down the government over Obamacare, I want to say, get over it!"

Schakowsky went on to acknowledge the healthcare program was experiencing serious issues, but called them "problems that I see being fixed."
