President Obama Tuesday sought to tie Republicans to the massive failure of the Obamacare rollout, suggesting that their opposition to Obamacare somehow made things worse.
Obama, who grumbled that Republicans aren’t “invested” in Obamacare’s success, spoke during a meeting of CEOs in Washington:
We should have anticipated that that would create a rockier rollout than if Democrats and Republicans were both invested in success.
One of the problems we’ve had is one side of Capitol Hill is invested in failure, and that makes, I think, the kind of iterative process of fixing glitches as they come up and fine-tuning the law more challenging.
The incompetent rollout has mostly been linked to the failure of the website Healthcare.gov. It’s not clear how Republicans contributed to the technical problems that have plagued the site.
