Ezra Klein to MSNBC: Obamacare Rollout a ‘Big Failure’ So Far

Seemingly echoing the sentiments of his colleague Robert Gibbs, Washington Post columnist Ezra Klein told MSNBC this morning that the Obamacare rollout has, so far, been been lamentably bad.

While Klein has long been a supporter of the Affordable Care Act, he told Morning Joe on Monday that the problems seen with the healthcare law’s enrollment website may signal “deeper, more systemic problems.”

“We’re a couple of weeks in and people can’t sign up, people have tried 20, 30, 40 times,” Klein said. “It’s one thing for that to be true the first three or four days, it’s another thing for it to be true two or three weeks in.”

“One of the Obama administration’s jobs, separate from all of the political stuff we talk about here, is to simply run things like this well, to run their signature legislative initiative well,” he added. “On that, so far, this has been a big failure.”
