Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said Sunday that the glitches plaguing Obamacare exemplifies why the government should not be in charge of health coverage.
"Maybe they will bring in Al Gore, who says he invented the Internet, maybe they will fix the website, but the bigger issue, is this is systematic -- we don't need the government running our healthcare," Jindal told "Fox News Sunday."
"The real critical issue is when it comes time to schedule your grandmother's cancer surgery, what's going to happen then," Jindal said.
"This is an incompetent rollout, but its symptomatic of the liberal ideology that believes government should be running our healthcare," Jindal said.
Asked whether he is considering a run for president in 2016, Jindal evaded the questions saying it was too early to make that decision, but he offered advice for the Republican Party to bring voters back into the fold.
"We can't just be a party of 'no,'" said Jindal, who also heads the Republican Governors Association.
"We need to show voters conservative principles work, and to see them working you don't need to look any further than our state capitols," Jindal said.
Those 30 states where Republicans are in charge are focusing on school choice, cutting taxes and lowering the unemployment rate, Jindal said.
"We don't need to change our principles, we don't need to become a second-level party," Jindal said. "We need to win the war of ideas."
