Gibbs: Obamacare Rollout ‘Excruciatingly Embarrassing’
Former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs on Monday described the rollout of Obamacare as “excruciatingly embarrassing” for the Obama administration. “This was bungled badly,” he said.
“I hope they’re working day and night to get this done and when they get it fixed, I hope they fire some people who were in charge of making sure this thing was supposed to work,” Gibbs told MSNBC. “This is excruciatingly embarrassing for the White House and the Department of Health and Human Services.”
Gibbs dismissed the administration’s claim that the an influx of traffic has caused the websites’ glitches, and called on the president to fire those responsible for sites’ design. “This is not a server problem, like too many people came to the website — this is a website architecture problem,” he said.
