Rep. Michael Burgess: Americans 'Finally Waking Up' to Failing Obamacare

The United States is "finally waking up" to the fact that Obamacare has not delivered what was advertised, and it is failing, Rep. Michael Burgess said Tuesday.

"The first step in resolving a crisis is admitting you have a problem," the Texas Republican told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program Tuesday. "The co-op has certainly failed."

Burgess said there were some states, like his own home state, where exchanges were never set up.

"But in the individual market, for the person who says, 'I've never had insurance [and] I'm going to go to healthcare.gov and get covered,' their policies are — they have gone up so much in the three years they've been available that people are simply walking away," the lawmaker said.

President Barack Obama, while promising lower costs through the healthcare reform law, also promised that people who like their doctors could keep them, but in addition to skyrocketing prices, people have had to switch doctors under the new plans.

Meanwhile, if elected, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has called for including "illegals in on the coverage," said Burgess. "While our veterans aren't getting the benefits they deserve."

"It's kind of a mess," Burgess concluded about the nation's healthcare laws.
