"It's time for a time out, which I've been calling for," Ayotte said on NBC's "Meet the Press."
Ayotte said that Democrats obsession with making this law work is hurting the country.
"They have been so stuck on this law and trying to implement it no matter what the cost," she said.
Ayotte implied that if Congress had passed a biparitsan bill, the health care law would be more effective.
"It was passed on purely partisan lines," Ayotte said. "That's what you get when you try to push it through."
