House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Sunday the glitches that have plagued the rollout of President Barack Obama’s landmark health care program are “unacceptable.”
“As far as the Affordable Care Act, as I call it, the fact is, that yes what has happened is unacceptable in terms of the glitches,” Pelosi told ABC’s Martha Raddatz on “This Week.”
“There is much that needs to be done to correct the situation,” she added.
Nonetheless, the San Francisco Democrat said she is still a strong supporter of the health care overhaul.
“This has to be fixed, but what doesn’t have to be fixed is the fact that tens of millions of more people will have access to affordable, quality health care. That no longer having a preexisting medical condition will bar you from getting affordable care,” Pelosi said.
The House Minority leader also appeared to give an early endorsement to a potential run at the White House by former Secretary of State and first lady Hillary Clinton, saying she’d make “a great president.”
“Let me say, if Hillary Clinton does run, she’ll be one of the best prepared people and she will win, I believe, if she runs,” Pelosi said. “She’ll be one of the best prepared people to enter the White House in a long time.”
