On Tuesday, the White House announced that it was tapping former acting Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director Jeff Zients to head the team overseeing the repairs on the Affordable Care Act health insurance exchange website. NPR Reporter Mara Liasson probed White House Press Sec. Jay Carney about whether he would be providing regular updates on those repairs as they did for disasters like the Deep Horizon oil spill in 2010.
In the past when you had a natural disaster like the oil spill, generally theres somebody in charge, Liasson began. And I guess Jeff Zients is going to be that person.
Will he be taking over some kind of a briefing role where he answers the questions? she asked.
I think hes providing management advice and consultation, Carney replied. but for more details about his role, because hes being brought on by H.H.S., Id refer to you H.H.S.
I dont think this this is a man-made I mean, this is not a natural disaster, he clarified.
I know that, Liasson added. One of the frustrations has been hard to get information about exactly what went wrong and what is being done to fix it, and there hasnt been a daily update from somebody whos well versed in the technical aspect of this.
Carney said that he had no further details about what Zients role would be.

“We did this on purpose, Mara, so we can’t call it a man made disaster.” - Sideshow Carney
Suddenly, someone from the media wants information?
Shut up and transcribe, media whore.
What do I think? I think Maura is using the same plastic surgeon as Nancy Pelosi, to get that finger-in-the-socket look.
Will WH Provide Obamacare Updates Like They Would Natural Disasters?
Answer.... Shut the Fu*k up and sit your as$ down...
“I’m sorry Mara. Are you tired of being allowed to ask questions? It sounds that way to me. If there is going to be information given, we’ll let SOME people know.
No questions from you for two weeks. That concludes this press conference.
Those people who brought envelopes with them today can meet with me in the Rolex Room”
I would call this a “man-caused disaster”, so no it is time to start countering violent extremism. (CVE)
My guess is that Carney has to go home every night and cut off his nose! It’s kinda’ like a lizard’s tail, it grows back every day in the WH Press Room.
I thought Mara asked a great question. Also, I think she’s one of the more thoughtful liberals in media.
I’m glad I read past the headline and through the article. It was amusing.
If they provide updates on this the way the did the Deepwater Horizon spill, we can expect to see Obama on television telling us how he got the websites fixed. Right before they come online and crash again.
The name is “the ObamaCare Disaster”, gotta get the press to use that name.
They like the word “probe”.
Thanks Mara, now you have your “exchange” for FOX news.
We hate FOX, they report and viewers decide and that is not what a good propaganda office wants - thus we investigate their reporters..he he he
