Kristol: No Democrat Facing Re-election Thinks Obamacare's Working

Sunday, 30 Mar 2014 05:42 PM

By Greg Richter

Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol isn't buying the Obama administration's line that the Affordable Care Act is working.

Appearing on ABC's "This Week," White House adviser David Plouffe said, "The law's working. But the politics are tough. They will always be tough. I think they'll get better over time. The law is working, and the Republican playbook of 'repeal Obamacare' gets tough as more and more people get healthcare."

"No actual Democratic senator running for re-election sounds like David Plouffe," Kristol responded. “They’re not saying, 'This law's working.' They’re saying, ‘Oh my God, we can fix it; here’s some new proposals.'"

"The Republican House won't do that," host George Stephanopoulos said.

"I don’t think the Democratic Senate will do it," Kristol responded. "I don’t think the Obama administration supports those proposals. They’ve resisted every attempt for minor fixes and delays in Obamacare, except for the ones they unilaterally wanted. In the real world, of real politics, the Democratic senators know it’s a big problem for them."
