Senator David Vitter (R-LA) is staunchly anti-Obamacare, going so far as to sign a letter threatening a government shutdown if Congress does not defund the law. (Another Republican Senator, Richard Burr (R-NC) calls the threat "the dumbest idea I've ever heard.") However, Vitter is actually helping his constituents enroll in Obamacare.

At a town hall meeting in Hammond, La., Vitter was asked if his office is "going to help constituents who might simply want to buy insurance." Here's what he had to say:

Well, we’re helping folks in any way we can trying to get them good information… We field calls every day in my offices in Louisiana trying to help people with individual questions and circumstances and I would encourage folks to call my office to get that guidance and help.

Vitter joins other GOP politicians like Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI) who publicly condemn Obamacare, but concede they'll help their constituents enroll in it.
