The Obama administration admitted yesterday it sent the wrong tax information to some 800,000 Healthcare.gov customers — yet another embarrassing setback for Obamacare that could give the GOP more ammo to derail the controversial health-care law.
This latest snafu could delay tax refunds and cause agonizing headaches for enrollees and their accountants.
Expect this latest blunder to catch plenty of flak in election hot spots New Hampshire and Iowa ahead of the 2016 presidential campaign, said GOP strategist Ford O’Connell.
“This is more ammo for Republicans on the campaign trail in particular,” O’Connell said. “Republicans are smart to pounce on this and continue to keep problems with Obamacare in the spotlight.”
