Daley Compares Healthcare.gov to Titanic
Former White House chief of staff Bill Daley isn’t mincing words about the rocky rollout of the federal health-care exchange, comparing it to the sinking of the Titanic.
Responding to a question about whether the administration should demand the resignation of Health and Human Services secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Daley said, “To me, that’s kind of like firing Captain Smith on the Titanic after it hit the iceberg. It’s not going to do much right now.”
On CBS on Thursday morning, Daley called the launch of the exchanges, which Sebelius oversaw, “a big embarrassment” for the Obama administration, and suggested that HHS may need a change in leadership after it gets the websites “straightened out.”
