PRESIDENT OBAMA: The challenge has been just making sure that consumers are actually able to get on a website, see those choices, and shop. And I think that we probably underestimated the complexities of building out a website that needed to work the way it should.
There is a larger problem that I probably -- speak personally, but also as the administration -- could have identified earlier, and that is the way the federal government does procurement and does IT (information technology) is just generally not very efficient. In fact, there's probably no bigger gap between the private sector and the public sector than IT. (Wall Street Journal CEO Council, November 19, 2013)
