No Mention of Obamacare Woes at Press Conference

Site problems? What site problems?


ObamaCare received scant mention at President Obama's press conference Tuesday, despite sustained problems with the law's online enrollment portal.

The minor, offhand references to the healthcare law highlight how much the ongoing fiscal stalemate has seized Washington's attention and distracted from the rocky debut of ObamaCare's exchanges.

The dearth of media questions about the Affordable Care Act is even more surprising given that attempts to thwart the law ushered in the shutdown to begin with.
