In an appearance on CBS This Morning on Monday, Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H. said that while she supports repeal of the Affordable Care Act, it is impossible now, The Hill reports.

"I support repeal, absolutely. But the political reality is, right now that's not going to happen," she said.  

On CNN's State of the Union on Sunday, Ayotte said that problems with the health care law go deeper than issues with HealthCare.gov, and she urged the president to delay the law's implementation, according to Politico.

 

"I'm calling on the president now to say let's have a timeout on this, Mr. President. You call a timeout on this," Ayotte said. "Convene a group of bipartisan leaders to address health care concerns in this country, because this is not working."
