George Will On Obamacare: "When They Fix The Website, Their Real Problems Will Begin"

GEORGE WILL: It is breaking and they're echoing what the president said with his body language and his action when he said the employer mandate is going to be delayed. From then on, we're all operating on the same premise, which is that the Affordable Care Act cannot be implemented as written. So now we're just arguing about the details. There's no

Pelosi: "Let's Not Get Too Bogged Down In What Happens If They're Not Able To Fix It"

REP. NANCY PELOSI (D-CA): Coming from where I do in California, I have great confidence in technology and it's ability to bring fresh eyes to the subject and fix it so that we can go forward.

Carney: Durbin Wrong, No One Told Obama "I Cannot Even Stand To Look At You"

JACKIE CALMES, NEW YORK TIMES: Just to follow up on that. In terms of the president talking to Republicans, can you rule out -- there was the number two Senate Democrat, Dick Durbin, said on his Facebook page that someone in recent exchange with the president said he can't ev

Carney: "The Affordable Care Act Is Not A Website"

QUESTION: What about getting specific information from your techs about what the problems are? You told us to talk to computer experts so that is what we are doing.

Wasserman Schultz: Obama Should Absolutely Be Open To Extending Enrollment Period

CHUCK TODD, MSNBC: I want to go back to the first question I asked, you didn't answer specifically on what Jeanne Shaheen is calling for.

Should there be an o

Carney On Obamacare Glitches: "Did Not Expect The Scale Of Problems We've Seen"

QUESTION: On health care, Secretary Sebelius on CNN yesterday said that the president was not aware of any of the problems with Healthcare.gov website before the launch.

CBS News: Obamacare Website Provides "Incredibly Misleading" Estimates To Consumers

JAN CRAWFORD, CBS THIS MORNING: Norah, Charlie, the administration announced it would provide this new "shop and browse" feature on Sunday but it's not giving consumers the real picture about the plans that are available... because in some cases people could end up paying double of what they see on the website. PRESIDENT OBAMA (VIDEO): "The web



Gibbs: No Doubt HHS Knew Obamacare Website Wasn't Going To Work

WILLIE GEIST, MSNBC: Robert, it kind of defies belief that no one knew that there were problems before it went up.

When does the White House step up a
