Jay Carney on Critics of Obamacare Delay: 'Willfully Ignorant

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday that critics of the Obama administration’s decision to delay the so-called “employer mandate” in the Affordable Care Act are being “willfully ignorant.”

Mr. Carney’s comments were made in reference to Republican criticism and Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) saying of the delay: “This was the law. How can they change the law?”

“People who suggest that there is anything unusual about the delaying of a deadline in the implementation of a complicated law are either sticking their heads in the sand are just willfully ignorant about past precedent,” Jay Carney said.
