Retiring Demo can now tell the truth about Obamacare

Rep. Jim Moran of Virginia is known as a man who would always tell his opinion.… Now it appears he gave it when he was allowed to.

He voted for Obamacare. But now that he is retiring he is telling the truth - it is broken. He is quoted by Washington Times:
“I’m afraid that the millennials, if you will,” Mr. Moran tells Washington’s WAMU-FM radio, “are less likely to sign up. I think they feel more independent. I think they feel a little more invulnerable than prior generations. But I don’t think we’re going to get enough young people signing up to make this bill work as it was intended to, financially.” 
His analysis is spot on, but that’s small consolation. “I just don’t know how we’re going to [fix] it, frankly,” says Mr. Moran. “If we had a solution, I’d be telling the president right now.” Now he tells us.
Where was bold Moran in 2009, 10, 11, 12 and 13?

Obamacare was sold on the number of uninsured. But few uninsured are signing up. (The Healthcare Blog) And hundreds of thousands have had their insurance cancelled already with more coming later this year. Most of the sign ups are those who were cancelled running for some sort of cover(age). It is not doing what President Obama promised.
