Is today's hearing a sign that Republicans are shifting their obamacare strategy.
From the fallout after the government shut down an Iraqi health care roll out Republicans appear to move to.
To move past their efforts I should say to -- fund the law.
They're focusing now on investigating its failures.
Let's talk about it with her mesh and -- senior editor of the national review.
This is the kind of thing the Republicans have been predicting all along they said this was going to be a ponderous clunky.
Difficult to implement law and now their predictions seem to be coming true.
That's right -- -- nobody predicted that the web site to be quite as mass of the disaster as they have turned out to be.
In the administration to -- saying for months.
The people in this country were trying to sabotage the lot and not make it work right it turns out -- employed in the mall as web designers.
You -- if you though the democratic congresswoman who compared it to pro flowers and things like that I mean if if American Express or or or any big company rolled out.
A website this bad I mean -- be out of business almost instantly.
Right end and she's responding to this excuse that oh well who could have anticipated this volume well.
It's a very easily anticipate -- bowl events and a lot of the problems in the web site.
Actually don't seem to be related to volume right because it's not millions of people trying to sign up apparently.
Yeah honestly engines probably.
Dropping a little bit every day -- people.
Get frustrated with the trying to log on right -- -- -- the president did say twenty million people you know took a look at -- -- twenty million there were twenty million attempts to logon but that's not even necessarily saying.
Twenty million that could be two million people who tried to ten times each.
Exactly that's right do you have to be.
Yes unpack any of those statistics that are cited like that and it's not just Republicans who were asking questions interestingly senator Max Baucus of Montana.
A Democrat who famously said he saw a train wreck coming with obamacare.
And interestingly is not running for reelection.
He says he wants to convene the finance committee to take a look at all of this.
Well and that's that's a little bit a large pink.
-- when you're do anything about the role the Senate Finance Committee played in creating this in the first place.
But I think it shows you that two Democrats in particular.
-- the democrats' -- who are who are up for reelection.
This son next year are very worried about the impact of obamacare because they know.
Then -- this is going to be something that's very hard for them to spin their way is there way out of well.
Baucus senator baucus said it was a train wreck and the train wreck may have arrived it's it's happening on Capitol Hill right now we'll continue to keep a watch.
On this house hearing going on right now Ramesh new -- from national review thank you.
