White House press secretary Jay Carney attempted to re-write history Monday when he claimed that the Obama administration had never set a 7 million-policyholder goal for the Affordable Care Act.
At the White House press briefing, CBS’s Major Garrett asked Carney why the administration was now backtracking from the “7 million-person enrollment figure that Kathleen Sebelius, Marilyn Tavenner and various other incarnations said was a goal and a legitimate goal and a reachable goal,” according to the C-SPAN video.
When Carney attempted to say the figure was a mere Congressional Budget Office estimate, and that other estimates varied, Garrett interrupted him with a telling quote.
