Top White House Adviser Won’t Say If Obamacare Website Will Be Fixed By . . . March…
TAPPER: Will the website be up and running, can you promise by December 15th, or the by March deadline, either one of the dates, can yes or no, can you promise?
SIMAS: So Jake, yes, between the website and all of the other ways that people have to sign up –
TAPPER: That wasn’t really the question.
SIMAS: But here’s the reality. Any American over the course of the next six months who either doesn’t have insurance or is on the individual market, between the website service that prior to october 1st didn’t exist, a 1-800 number prior to October 1st that didn’t exist, navigators and the ability to do it on their own, they can get insurance and will. …The main purpose of the Affordable Care Act is not a website. It’s to make sure that any American who is either uninsured or in the individual market has options to get insurance. That will happen. That’s our sole focus and that’s what we’re going to do.http://weaselzippers.us/
