While the White House has said that the president has “full confidence” in Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, despite the disastrous rollout, a key adviser to Obamacare has declared that the rollout is in complete crisis.
“I wish it were going a little bit better,” said Jonathan Gruber, an economics professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the architect of Romneycare, which was the blueprint for Obamacare. “I think it harms the perception.”
“Right now we’re at “DEFCON politically problematic,” Gruber added.
The White House has refused to indicate when the federal exchanges will finally be functional. If the estimates of officials in Maryland are anything to go by, however, it is going to be at least two months.
