Comments on rollout of Obama’s health law
San Francisco Chronicle

The new online health insurance markets, the portals to coverage for most of the nation’s nearly 50 million uninsured people, have gotten off to a rocky start since their Oct. 1 launch. The law was also central to the budget fight that led to a 16-day partial government shutdown. Politicians had these comments on the Sunday talk shows about the state of President Barack Obama’s health care law:

“A visit to the website is kind of like a trip to the Department of Motor Vehicles in your state. … We’re going to do everything we can in the future to try to repeal it. But that requires a Republican Senate and a different president.” — Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
