Powers: 'I Really Thought ObamaCare Was Going to Be the Low Point'
The Outnumbered panel, including today's #oneluckyguy Dominic Di-Natale, took on President Obama's response to the worsening problems within the VA health system. After highlighting Charles Krauthammer's harsh crticism of the president - which you can see here and here - we also saw some strong words from Ron Fournier of the National Journal.
In a column today, he wrote in part:
"The launch of the Affordable Care Act and the worsening of conditions at the Veterans Affairs Department are emblematic of Obama's inattention to the hard work of governing. He is slow to fire poor-serving Cabinet members and quick to dismiss controversies as 'phony scandals.' To the Obama administration, transparency is a mere talking point."
Even Democrats are speaking out and calling for more urgency from the president, leading Kirsten Powers to believe that this is the worst scandal President Obama has faced so far. Powers recalled that Obama came into office after campaigning on the idea that "government is the solution."
"The fact that he hasn't been able to make progress, and in fact you could argue it has gotten worse on his watch, is not a great endorsement of that," said Powers, adding that she expects that there is "so much more probably going on than we even realize" in terms of mismanagement inside the VA.
She agreed with Fournier that this scandal is the low point of the Obama presidency.
"I thought it was gonna be ObamaCare, but now I think this is actually probably worse, especially if you look at the way Democrats are turning on him."
