Ezekiel Emanuel, the chief architect of Obamacare, admitted during an interview that former President Barack Obama’s “landmark” health care legislation has many problems that should be addressed immediately.
Emanuel, brother of Rahm Emanuel, is currently a senior fellow at the Center for America Progress, a “think-tank” in Washington, DC. Before joining America Progress he served as a health care adviser to Obama during the creation and implementation of the Affordable Care Act.
“Absolutely. 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,” Emanuel said. Emanuel said that Obamacare has “been around for seven years, so some of the problems have become obvious.”
“Any corporation that would do a massive change like this would make constant adjustments. Because of the paralysis in Congress, we haven’t been able to make the adjustments.”
