White House press secretary Jay Carney said Thursday that President Obama was seeking "accountability" from federal employees working to fix glitches with the ObamaCare website designed to let uninsured Americans purchase coverage.
The press secretary said that Obama's focus was squarely on getting the problems fixed, adding the president was "not happy" with how the rollout had gone.
"The accountability the president seeks today is the accountability that comes from those who are working on implementation," Carney said.
Carney also stressed that the healthcare reform law amounted to more than just the troubled website.
“It’s important to remember the website alone is not the Affordable Care Act,” Carney said.
The White House said that the president did not touch on ObamaCare during his speech Thursday morning because that address was designed to highlight priorities for Congress in the coming months. The administration, Carney said, was "working on" addressing issues with implementation of the ACA.
