Former Obama White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs Says Obamacare Rollout “Excruciatingly Embarrassing”
OUCH, THIS ONE IS GOING TO LEAVE A MARK …
Former Obama White House Press Secretary and top aid Robert Gibbs calls Obamacare roll-out “Excruciatingly Embarrassing!!!” Gibbs stated on MSNBC’s Now that “This was bungled badly. This is not a server problem [where] just too many people came to the website. This is a website architecture problem.” Gibbs also went on to say that individuals need to be fired. How bad is it when an individual like Gibbs is coming out and stating the obvious as Barack Obama and current WH press secretary Carney, just call it glitchy?
From The Blaze:
“This is excruciatingly embarrassing for the White House and for the Department of Health and Human Services,” Gibbs said on MSNBC Monday. “This was bungled badly. This is not a server problem [where] just too many people came to the website. This is a website architecture problem.”
Repeating the “excruciatingly embarrassing” charge, Gibbs said it’s “not fatal because there are still many weeks and days to go before the enrollment period closes at the end of March.”
He said buying health care through the exchanges is different from a one-time music purchase on iTunes, but that “if they don’t get these glitches figured out fast, people aren’t going to come back” to compare costs and make their final decisions.
“I hope they’re working day and night to get this done and when they get it fixed I hope they fire some people that were in charge,” Gibbs said. “We knew there were going to be some glitches, right? But these are glitches that go, quite frankly, beyond the pale of what should be expected.”
