Bill Nelson: "somebody ought to get fired" for Obamacare website fiasco


Sen. Bill Nelson today called the fiasco over the Obamacare enrollment website "inexcusable” and “somebody ought to get fired.”

But first he said the administration needs to fix the problems.

Nelson's comments came this afternoon during an interview with reporters in his Tampa regional office.  They echoed ones he made late yesterday in an interview with one of the state’s veteran political journalists, Michael Putney.

 “They should wait and get the thing up and running, and then determine and let somebody be held accountable,” Nelson told Putney, who hosts "This Week In South Florida with Michael Putney" on Miami's ABC affiliate, WPLG-Channel 10.

 “That’s the problem in government today,” Nelson said.  “People are not held to account.”
