Chuck Todd Grills Jay Carney: ‘Who Misled the President’ About Obamacare ‘Glitches’? (Mediaite)

NBC News Chief White House Correspondent Chuck Todd dug into White House Press Sec. Jay Carney on Monday following President Barack Obama’s Rose Garden address where he discussed the problems associated with implementing the Affordable Care Act. Todd repeatedly asked Carney who “misled” Obama and what advisors “let him down” ahead of the implementation of the ACA.

“Five days before the launch, the president said it’s a website where you can compare and purchase affordable health care plans the same way you shop for a plane ticket on Kayak,” Todd recalled. “Who misled him? Who misled the president on this?”

“Are you telling me five days before that somebody let the president go out to the American public to give this speech and say this and make this promise?” Todd continued. “In fact, the next line is, ‘I promise you, this is a lot easier, it’s like booking a hotel or plane ticket.’ Who let him down?”
