Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel admitted that Obamacare needs to be fixed, citing unintended consequences and problems with the bill that Congress was not able to fix before the law was enacted.
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, who is considered an architect of Obamacare, admitted that the bill “absolutely” needs to be fixed during an interview with “CBS This Morning.”
CBS News’ Gayle King asked Emanuel if he agrees with President Trump’s claim that Obamacare needs to be fixed.
“Oh absolutely,” Emanuel responded.
Emanuel continued, “We’ve had unintended consequences from the Affordable Care Act. We’ve had problems that were in the bill that we couldn’t solve before it got enacted.”
“It’s been around for seven years, so some of the problems have become obvious,” Emanuel concluded. “Any corporation that would do a massive change like this would make constant adjustments.”
