Sen. Tim Scott slammed the Affordable Care Act's online rollout and dismissed claims by President Barack Obama that people are "rooting" for its failure.

"I don't think anyone has to root for failure of Obamacare. Obamacare is consistently and currently failing," Scott (R-S.C.) said Monday on Fox News's "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren."

"What we should root for, is private-sector opportunities to improve the health care delivery, to make health insurance more affordable," he added.

Scott's comments follows the president's remarks Monday, in which he said, "It's time for folks to stop rooting for its failure, because hardworking, middle-class families are rooting for its success."

Scott also knocked the term "glitches" and emphasized the problems surrounding the rollout of Obamacare are far worse.

"I think the word "glitches' was poll tested to make sure people were comfortable with the thought process. The reality of it is this is an absolute failure," the senator said.

"If it's this bad now, I fear the worse is still to come," Scott said.
