Wolf Blitzer said Wednesday that the administration should maybe accept the advice of Republicans on the health care and delay the individual mandate by a year.
After fellow CNN reporter Brian Todd reported that the administration had been warned about potential glitches now plaguing the online sign ups months in advance, Blitzer suggested perhaps the administration should have waited a year.
“They had three years to get this ready, if they weren't fully ready, they should accept the advice Republicans are giving them, delay it for a year, get it ready and make sure it works,” Blitzer said.
Republicans immediately jumped on Blitzer’s comment:
Reince Priebus ✔ @Reince
First @piersmorgan, now @wolfblitzer! I agree, Wolf - #ObamaCare needs to be delayed. http://bit.ly/15oae0J

Even Wolf Blitzer thinks Republicans are right to ask for a 12-month delay in #glitch-filled ObamaCare http://freebeacon.com/cnns-wolf-blitzer-obamacare-should-be-delayed-a-year/ …
