Bill Nelson: Someone should be fired over Obamacare website mess



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 o Michael Putney of WPLG-Channel 10 in Miami. “They should wait and get the thing up and running, and then determine and let somebody be held accountable."

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

In Sarasota, Nelson was asked if HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius should be the one who is fired. "No," he replied, according to the Herald-Tribune.
