Emanuel: “Heads are rolling” over botched Obamacare rollout

(CNN) – Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who served as President Barack Obama’s chief of staff, said he expects that people will be held accountable for the botched rollout of the healthcare website.

“I have all the confidence and all the assurance that heads are rolling, and they’re spinning right now to fix the problem,” Emanuel said in an interview with Jake Tapper on The Lead.

“That's what the president wants everybody’s energy on: fix the problem. We'll deal with culpability later, because the most important thing you've got to do is get the problem fixed,” said Emanuel.

    That's the thing Emanuel, T-Publicans don't want to fix anything (mostly because they can't) and also because the president would get the credit – so they'll just continue destroying us all until eventually they destroy themselves.

    It's a website, not a nuclear reactor. No one's going to die because of computer glitches. The only good thing about all the hysterics is that is making more people curious about ACA.
