In the latest turn of events surrounding the massive “glitch” that is Obamacare, Mary Landrieu is now calling for the crux of the failed policy to be delayed.
“Given the existing problems with the website, I urge you to consider extending open enrollment beyond the current end date of March 31, 2014,” Landrieu said.
A Politico article published this week pointed out that, “The Obama administration’s day ended much as it began, with Democrats frustrated over Obamacare’s rollout.”
“You know it’s bad when liberal Democrats like Mary Landrieu are calling to delay Obamacare,” said LAGOP Executive Director Jason Doré. “Sadly what they don’t realize is that a mere delay cannot fix this failure. Obamacare needs to be completely repealed and replaced. Instead of fighting for a real fix, Mary Landrieu is playing politics with Louisiana residents’ healthcare.”
Healthcare.gov, which cost more to develop than Facebook or the first generation iPhone, has been the largest failure of the Obama presidency. It also happens to be the policy that Mary Landrieu has bet her political future on.
Last week, on the Senate floor while speaking about Obamacare, Landrieu said, “If they do not like it, they can unelect us. Believe me, they will have a great chance because I am up for reelection right now.”
Recent polling shows an overwhelming amount of Louisiana residents oppose Obamacare.
