David Plouffe: GOP Plan To Get Rid Of Obamacare Will Be "An Impossibility"


DAVID PLOUFFE, FMR. OBAMA ADVISER: I disagree. I think Iraq was going on, which was getting more and more unpopular, the economy was (inaudible). It's hard in these feeding frenzies in Washington to have perspective. But where could we be in four or five months? Hopefully the website is working fine and people are enrolling for health care. Hopefully, we won't have another bout of Washington dysfunction, which is one of the reasons I think people are upset it's not just health care. And we pass a budget and we move forward. The economy continues to strengthen.

So we could be a in a much different place three or four months from now.

No doubt this is an enormously challenging time. But I think you do have to have some perspective here, that, you know, the story could change. And I do think once the website gets fixed -- I think the political notion, by the way, that next year's election, or 2016, the Republican platform is going to be getting rid of health care, millions of people will be signed up. It's an impossibility.
