President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act is a "wet blanket" on the U.S. economy, Gov. Scott Walker, R-Wis., told CNBC.
"They made a promise that nobody could actually deliver on, not just in terms of the website, but on the overall policy of Obamacare, which is an abysmal failure" he said in an interview Tuesday on "The Kudlow Report."
The New York Times reported Monday that, according to documents from a House panel, McKinsey & Co. consultants had briefed senior administration officials as early as March about trouble with HealthCare.gov.
That news came on the heels of millions of plan cancellations by insurers, even after the president repeatedly promised, "If you like your plan, you can keep it."
Host Larry Kudlow suggested that people are just as angry about misinformation as they are about the law itself, and Walker agreed.
"Either they're not listening to the facts or they're not being informed," he said of the Obama administration. "In either case, it's rather frightening."
Walker, who favors repealing the law, said Obamacare will be a defining issue in the 2014 midterm elections.
