Ex-Clinton aide: Dems must admit they 'screwed up' on O-Care

A top Democratic strategist on Friday said his party needs to admit they "screwed up" on ObamaCare.

In an interview on Fox News' "The Kelly File," Lanny Davis, White House special counsel to former President Clinton, said Democrats — including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) — should take ownership of their mistakes on the healthcare law.

"Nancy Pelosi should say that — we messed up...We have to take ownership," Davis said, indicating that admitting fault is the first step to fixing the Affordable Care Act.

He added that the private sector should have had more of a role in developing HealthCare.Gov, which debuted Oct. 1 with significant glitches. 

"We screwed up," Davis said, advising Pelosi that she should admit that Democrats relied too heavily on the government to set up ObamaCare.
