Erick Erickson On Obamacare: ‘We Must Deny Them The Opportunity To Fix The Law Itself’

December 2, 2013 5:07 a.m.

Obama administration officials may continue to repair the Affordable Care Act’s hobbled online exchange, but right-wing pundit Erick Erickson had some advice Monday for Republicans: Don’t let them “fix the law itself.”

With the administration touting improvements made to, Erickson urged Republicans to stay focused on the substance of the law.

“Conservatives need to keep their focus on the law overall. The website is a reflection of a terrible law. The law is causing millions to lose insurance, millions more to pay more for insurance, and the best the Democrats can do is claim it’d work well if the GOP didn’t think nasty thoughts about it,” Erickson wrote on, the website he founded.

“As we all get back to business today, we must remember the law itself is the problem — not the website. The website they can fix. We must deny them the opportunity to fix the law itself. Let the American people see big government in all its glory. Then offer a repeal.”

Roughly 100,000 people signed up for health insurance last month using the troubled website.
