Republican Sen. John Barrasso of Wyoming on Sunday lambasted the roll-out of the Affordable Care Act, as well as the leadership of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, but agreed to work with Democrats to forge a solution because "it's a law."

"As a doctor, I want to make sure that patients can actually get affordable, high-quality care," Barrasso said on ABC's "This Week." "In my home state of Wyoming … we see that the rates are actually going to be higher. The New York Times front-page story the other day said exactly that, that the law has failed to provide affordable care and coverage in rural America, so that is a real problem."

Barrasso said the glitches with the website are the "tip of the iceberg" when it comes to issues with the healthcare legislation that have Republicans and Democrats fretting about "wasted taxpayer dollars," waivers to businesses, unions and members of Congress, and the fact that "no one in the White House has to sign up" for Obamacare.

"The president made promises that this was going to be cheaper than your cell-phone bill, easier to use than Amazon and you could keep your doctor," Barrasso said. "People all across the country…are seeing that’s just not true."

Sebelius, who last week said "fixes are in place each and every day" with regard to the error-riddled Web site, has lost credibility," Barrasso said.

"She's already, as of Saturday Night Live last night, the laughing stock of America," he said.
