Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said Sunday that ObamaCare insurance exchanges set to go live this week “are being held together right now with duct tape and chicken wire.”
The physician said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that consumers are in for a case of sticker shock, adding that Americans will have difficulty finding a doctor to care for them.
“The president made a couple of promises. One with the exchanges, and he said it would be cheaper than a cellphone bill. And I don’t expect a lot of people to be able to find something less than $71 a month on the exchanges,” he said.
“People are going to be paying more. And he said … if you have your doctor, and you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. We’re seeing all across the country exchanges that trying to get the price down have had to exclude many doctors.”
