Blitzer: Delay Obamacare

CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer said the White House should take Republicans’ suggestion and delay Obamacare due to the poor performance of the websites that are facilitating it. “If they weren’t fully ready, they should accept the advice that a lot of Republicans are giving them — delay it another year, get it ready, and make sure it works,” Blitzer said Wednesday.

“They know how to do it, but if they didn’t get it ready on time, then maybe fix the problem and make sure people don’t have to worry about it,” he added.

Since the online exchanges launched last week, users across the country have complained about the website’s glitches. The Obama administration says it does not know how many people have enrolled in a new plan through the exchanges.
