Wolf Blitzer: White House Should Take GOP ‘Advice,’ Delay Obamacare Website


Wolf Blitzer said on CNN Wednesday that the Obama administration should have listened to Republicans and delayed the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

“If they had three years to get this ready, if they weren’t fully ready, they should accept the advice Republicans are giving them, delay it for a year, get it to work there are health insurance sites that work great,” Blitzer said. “If they didn’t get it ready in time, make sure to get it right.”

Blitzer was speaking with Brian Todd, a CNN reporter, about the glitches in the software for online healthcare enrolllment. Todd said that the White House ignored warnings from insurers that the programs were not ready.

“They ignored them, went full speed ahead, and said we’ll work this out,” Todd told Blitzer.

Update: Blitzer tweeted Wednesday night that he was referring to the health care exchange website only:
