On MSNBC's Morning Joe, Illinois senator Dick Durbin called Mitt Romney the "the baby daddy of Obamacare." He made the remarks in reference to Romney saying over the weekend that he'd repeal and replace Obamacare, maintaining some similar features of the president's signature legislation.

"Wasn't it great to hear Mitt Romney say he wants to maintain parts of Obamacare?" Mika Brzezinski, the co-host of the show, asks Durbin, after playing a clip of Romney's weekend interview.

"Well, he knows about it. As Elton John would say, he should know, he's been there enough," Joe Scarborough chimes in.

"He's the baby daddy of Obamacare," says Durbin, referring to Romney.

"There you go," the hosts respond in agreement.
