Obamacare Architect: Health Care Law ‘Absolutely’ Needs to Be Fixed

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, an architect of the Affordable Care Act, admitted during an appearance on "CBS This Morning" Monday that Obamacare "absolutely" needs to be fixed.

"Would you agree that [Obamacare] needs to be fixed? You are one of the architects," co-host Gayle King said.

"Oh absolutely," Emanuel said. "We've had unintended consequences from the Affordable Care Act. We've had problems that were in the bill that we couldn't solve before it got enacted and it's been around for seven years, so some of the problems have become obvious."

Emanuel continued by saying any corporation that would enact a change like this would make "constant adjustments."

This is not the first time that Emanuel has admitted that there are things that need to be fixed with the health care law. Emanuel wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post in August acknowledging that there were issues and then included a five-prong plan to fixing them.

However, he has also tried to downplay issues with the law by saying that increasing premiums were "not a big increase."
