Christie Calls Obamacare a ‘Train Wreck,’ Glad NJ Has No Health Exchange

Gov. Chris Christie didn’t mince words tonight when talking about the Affordable Care Act, calling the law a “disaster” and a “train wreck.”

“This is just an awful law that made no sense. I’m glad that the train wreck’s not mine, it’s his,” the governor said, referring to President Obama. “It’s a train wreck that anyone who has managed anything ever in their lives could have seen coming.”

Christie editorialized during NJ 101.5′s Ask the Governor program, in response to a question on why New Jersey opted for a federal exchange instead of putting together a New Jersey exchange under Obamacare. Christie said NJ chose not to build a state exchange because the state would take on the burden of maintaining the exchange without being able to fully control it.

Christie also mentioned that many Americans had lost their health care plans under Obamacare and contended that Obama had been dishonest in talking to Americans about the law.

“This entire Obamacare program is a failure,” Christie said. “He should have just told everyone the truth from the beginning but if he had, it wouldn’t have passed.”
