President Barack Obama didn’t know of problems with the Affordable Care Act’s website — despite insurance companies’ complaints and the site’s crashing during a test run — until after its now well-documented abysmal launch, the nation’s health chief told CNN on Tuesday.
In an exclusive interview with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta asked when the President first learned about the considerable issues with the Obamacare website. Sebelius responded that it was in “the first couple of days” after the site went live October 1.
“But not before that?” Gupta followed up.
To which Sebelius replied, “No, sir.”
This is supposed to give us confidence, I guess?
(I love way they all say you can just call — when reports are that the people you call will tell you to go online.)
If his golf course was not being properly maintained, Obama would know that.
But a Web site to be used by millions of Americans who are required by law to buy what the Web site is offering? Don’t bother me with the details.
