President Barack Obama will not be traveling to Pennsylvania on Tuesday to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, and White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer knows why: He’s trying to fix healthcare.gov.
Pfeiffer’s comment came in response to National Journal’s Ron Fournier asking why the president chose to skip the commemoration services.
“(W)hy not honor Gettysburg with a presidential visit?” the reporter asked in a tweet.
“It (didn’t) work schedule-wise,” Pfeiffer tweeted in response.
“Serious question: What is on his schedule that is more important than Gettysburg anniversary?” Fournier asked.
“Oh, I don't know, there's this whole website thing that someone suggested might destroy the Dem Party,” Pfeiffer responded.
So, according to a senior White House adviser, the president’s decision to skip the 150 the anniversary of the Gettysburg address is because he’s busy fixing the broken, error-riddled Obamacare website.
