National Review reports White House Spokesperson Jay Carney continued to dodge questions about the various problems plaguing Obamacare's online exchanges Tuesday, by pleading ignorance and repeatedly pointing reporters' questions to the Department of Health and Human Services. At the end of the daily briefing, after offering one last referral to HHS, Carney walked out of the room as frustrated reporters continued to ask him questions.
Carney explained that, due to his inexperience with website construction, he wouldn't be able to comment on some of the technical and specific elements of the websites' development. "I'm not a computer expert, I don't build websites," he said.
When asked whether the White House would cooperate with congressional oversight, Carney said the administration would do so only if it was "legitimate."
