Congressman Robert Hurt says he'll only support the Affordable Care Act if it's rewritten.
Thursday he talked about the health care law and other top political topics to government students at Chatham High School.
The students grilled the congressman for more than an hour and a half on the government shutdown, his disapproval of raising the debt ceiling, and health care.
Hurt says the government's insurance website issues are a sign the Affordable Care Act isn't going to work.
"The American people knew this. The American people never liked this law because they knew what is happening now was going to happen. This was totally foreseeable for everyone except maybe this president and I think that is extremely regrettable," Hurt said.
Hurt also blames the president and senate Democrats for the government shutdown.
He says their resistance to negotiate with congressional Republicans is "unreasonable".
