Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) pleaded with President Obama to take a “time out” with the implementation of ObamaCare because she said the law is hurting middle-class families.
“Call a time out, Mr. President,” Ayotte said on the Senate floor Wednesday. “It’s not working … the problem is much deeper [than the healthcare exchange website].”
“I feel terribly bad for these people,” Ayotte said. “It breaks my heart.”
Ayotte asked Obama to delay implementation of his signature law, saying the president should use a one-year delay to come up with bipartisan fixes to the law.
She suggested that instead of a healthcare exchange, Americans should be able to purchase health insurance across state lines, increasing competition and lowering costs.
