How Much Did Obama Know About Obamacare Launch?

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius "was in frequent contact with President Obama and senior White House aides before the disastrous launch of the federal ObamaCare exchange last year," The Hill reports.

"While Sebelius has said the president was not aware of HealthCare.gov's problems, more than 750 pages of documents obtained by The Hill through a Freedom of Information Act request show she made scores of visits to the White House. The documents reveal that Sebelius met with or attended calls and events with Obama at least 18 times between Oct. 27, 2012, and Oct. 6, 2013, including at least seven instances in which the two were scheduled to discuss the new healthcare law, according to the secretary's draft schedules."
