Ann Coulter has a message for Republican lawmakers smarting over the continuing and troubled rollout of the Affordable Care Act: Now's the time to band together and try to defund it again.

"The Democrats absolutely have to pass a delay now," the noted conservative commentator told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Coulter said she agreed with a recent column by Newsmax Media CEO and founder Christopher Ruddy that Republicans should not try to delay the Affordable Care Act's implementation, so that voters can see what a disaster it is.

"So this is the time for Republicans to come roaring back and have the House pass a bill completely defunding it — not agreeing to a delay," she said.

Coulter, author of the new book, "Never Trust a Liberal Over 3 – Especially a Republican," is furious with Democrats who are blasting Republicans for their criticism of the healthcare law's bungled website.

"Democrats have the audacity to say, 'Oh you're upset about the website failing when you want it to fail anyway,'" she said.

"No, we said this would happen and it's happening — and as much as it's like Christmas every day, with every aspect of this law becoming a disaster — [the] people who supported it and supported Obama discovered, 'Oops, we were lied to.'

"Not by the Republicans. We warned you America. But it's not enough that it's just a disaster."

Coulter said Republicans must begin to concentrate on winning back the Senate and on reinvigorating the federal government.

"Government programs don't fall on their own. We have to elect representatives who will specifically repeal these monstrosities," she said.

"Duh, that's why I keep saying, let's look at Arkansas, West Virginia, Louisiana, Alaska, Montana, Minnesota. We can win back the Senate if Republicans set their minds to it and stop the internal fight."
