Wasserman Schultz: Exchanges Needed Better Design, Better Rollout

by Andrew Johnson

Add Debbie Wasserman Schultz to the list of important Dems disappointed by Obamacare’s online exchanges. The Democratic National Committee chairman admitted the website’s shortcomings should have been addressed before launch, in an interview with HuffPost Live on Tuesday.

“I don’t think we should be making excuses,” Wasserman Schultz said of the website’s issues. “There should have been a better rollout and a better design.”

She claimed that part of the problem was the amount of traffic overwhelming the site, but some experts have questioned this explanation, instead blaming structural flaws in the website’s architecture.
