Former President Bill Clinton told ABC News Sunday that President Barack Obama shouldn’t allow any changes to Obamacare in exchange for House Republicans raising the debt ceiling.

“There’s nothing to negotiate with.  He shouldn’t delay the health care bill.  It’s the law and we’re opening the enrollment on October 1.  We’re ready,” Clinton said on This Week. “They’re in better shape now than the country was to implement President Bush’s drug program, which everybody’s forgotten.  Go back and look at the polls, even more unpopular than health care reform is now.”

“So I think that’s a non-starter,” Clinton said.
