President Obama’s former campaign manager on Sunday said it may be years until ObamaCare is working “really well.”
David Plouffe said on ABC’s “This Week” that ObamaCare was designed to be implemented by the states.
“And in most of the states [it] is going quite well. You talked about Medicaid expansion. I think it’s just a fact, and it may take until 2017 when this president leaves office, you’re going to see almost every state in this country running their own exchanges eventually and expanding Medicaid. And I think it’ll work really well, then,” he said.
The Obama administration on Sunday said HealthCare.gov was workable for the vast majority of users, a standard that will be tested as millions of people flood the site in the next three weeks.
“You see the interest out there … people want healthcare,” Plouffe said. “They’re going to be able to get healthcare.”
