Vice President Joe Biden apologized Wednesday for the botched rollout of HealthCare.gov, calling the technical issues plaguing the website "inexcusable."
"We apologize for that," Biden said during an interview with HLN.
He also depicted the president as diligent in the weeks leading up to the debut of the website.
"We were under the impression that it was ready to go," Biden said.
We had the president to his credit almost seven weeks out asking, was it ready, and we were told by the pros we were all ready to go — all online."
