Obama Aide: ObamaCare Debut Will Be ‘Messy’
As the debut of Obamacare nears in less than 10 months, officials responsible for implementing the complicated law are starting to warn that it will be a mess.
“We know it’s going to be messy,” said Jeffrey Crowley, a former top Obama aide on the team that spearheaded development of the Affordable Care Act. “There are going to be things that come up that are unanticipated,” he added.
Discussing Obamacare Monday at a Center for American Progress seminar on the law’s impact on HIV/AIDS and the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, the president’s former director of the White House Office of National AIDS Policy and senior advisor on disability policy added, “if we do everything we can possibly think of, it’s still going to be a messy transition, but we’ll end up in a better place.”
