Sen. Dan Coats: Americans Will Be Stuck on ‘Titanic’ Obamacare (+video)

Photo Credit: YouTube The problems with Obamacare run much more deeply than the glitches on its expensive, faulty website — and fixing the site’s technological problems won’t heal the wounds being caused by the health insurance law, says Indiana Sen. Dan Coats.

“The failure of [the] Obamacare launch is just the tip of the iceberg,” said Coats, giving Saturday’s GOP weekly address. “Unless we act, Americans will be stuck on board this Titanic.”

Obamacare launched one month ago, on Oct. 1, and many Americans still can’t go online and sign up, despite promises by the White House and congressional Democrats that the insurance exchanges would be ready to go.

“The president even told the American public that signing up online would be as easy as a few simple keystrokes,” said Coats. “Perhaps the President hasn’t tried logging onto the website himself because he and his political appointees are not required to join Obamacare.”

But the rest of the country doesn’t have that choice, and the few that have been able to access the online exchanges are “experiencing sticker shock,” Coats said.
