President Obama showed up at a press briefing Thursday to address the Philippines typhoon as well as an American typhoon called Obamacare.
Former FOX News reporter Major Garrett, now with CBS News, was there and presented the president with some tough questions.
Addressing the infamous ‘like your plan…keep your plan’ claim, Major posed this question to Obama:
Do you not believe… people deserve a deeper, more transparent accountability from you as to why you said that over and over when your own statistics published in the Federal Register alerted your policy staff – and, I presume, you – to the fact that millions of Americans would in fact probably fall into the very gap you’re trying to administratively fix now?
Mr. Garrett followed that inquiry with a second one:
You were informed or several people in this building were informed two weeks before the launch of the website that it was failing the most basic tests internally; and yet a decision was made to launch the website on October 1st. Did you, sir, make that test (sic)? And if so, did you regret that?
