White House press secretary Jay Carney said Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius had the "full confidence" of President Obama, a day after his predecessor said people should be fired over ObamaCare glitches.

"The secretary does have the full confidence of the president," Carney said.

Carney said that Sebelius, like Obama, was "focused on our number one priority, which is making the implementation of the Affordable Care Act work well."
