Beckel: WH ‘Bludgeoned’ Me For Suggesting Obamacare Delay

by Andrew Johnson

Bob Beckel, a liberal co-host of Fox News’ The Five, said he received an angry phone call from the White House after suggesting on the air that the administration enact a six-month to one-year delay of Obamacare’s individual mandate due to the problems afflicting the online exchanges.

“I got a call from somebody at the White House who absolutely bludgeoned me over it,” Beckel said Tuesday. According to Beckel, a former campaign manager for Walter Mondale, he told the unnamed White House staffer that the dysfunctional website is frustrating potential customers and dissuading them from returning to the website.
