"While the Obama White House is sure to blame the poor enrollment numbers on the many unacceptable tech glitches that have frustrated Americans, I maintain that the larger reason ObamaCare has failed is because it was conceived based on a lie that Americans could keep their healthcare plans and has failed to address our number one healthcare problem in America: soaring costs," Priebus said in the statement. "Reasons one million and one million and one why the federal government should not be running our healthcare."

The Obama administration released its first official enrollment numbers on Wednesday after healthcare.gov's problematic rollout.
