Obama: No One Told Me About Obamacare’s Problems | Washington Free Beacon
By Washington Free Beacon Staff
The excuses for the Obamacare failure continue to mount, but President Obama delivered what is probably his best excuse yet Thursday at his press conference. CBS’s Major Garrett recounted that President Obama and individuals within the White House were informed two weeks prior to the health exchange’s launch that the website had failed most basic tests. Garrett proceeded to ask President Obama if he had made those tests and if so, did he regret it.
President Obama weakly replied “…I was not informed directly that the website would not be working, as the way it was supposed to. Had I been informed, I wouldn’t be going out saying, ‘Boy, this is going to be great.’ You know, I’m accused of a lot of things, but I don’t think I’m stupid enough to go around saying ‘This is going to be like shopping on amazon or Travelocity’ a week before the website opens, if I thought that it wasn’t going to work”
