Gov. Jindal: Fixing Obamacare Website is Easy Part, Critical Issue is Scheduling Grandmother’s Cancer Surgery

BATON ROUGE – Governor Bobby Jindal appeared on “Fox News Sunday” this morning where he said that fixing the Obamacare website is the “easy part,” but the “real critical issue is when it comes to schedule your grandmother’s cancer surgery.” Governor Jindal stressed that the problems with the Obamacare website are “symptomatic of a bigger problem” in that the Obama Administration is either the most incompetent or most liberal administration in recent history. 
“I think they’ll eventually fix the website, but let’s remember, this is the easy part. You know, the real critical issue is when it comes time to schedule your grandmother’s cancer surgery, what is going to happen then?
“I think this is symptomatic of a bigger problem. And I have long wondered – is this administration the most incompetent or the most liberal administration in recent history? I think this issue, this policy shows that, to quote Hillary Clinton, what difference does it make?
“This is an incompetent rollout, but it is symptomatic of a liberal ideology that believes government should be running our health care. So I think this is just the tip of the iceberg.
“Eventually they’ll fix the internet problems. Maybe they’ll bring in Al Gore, you know the guy who says he invented the internet.
“They’ll fix the website. But the bigger issue is this is symptomatic. We don’t need the government running our healthcare.”
