Josh Earnest was questioned Monday about President Obama's former colleagues at Harvard, who are now complaining about the Affordable Care Act—an act they once supported.
Harvard released a statement that the law is raising health insurance costs, and that accordingly, the university would have to change the plans for its staff.
Ed Henry asked Earnest whether it was "hypocritical" for these professors to claim that Obamacare was good for the country until they personally had to pay more because of it. Earnest, for his part, was stumped by the question. He stumbled through his answer before rattling off White House talking points about the law.
The irony that some of the biggest Obamacare supporters no longer celebrate the passage of their health care law or its impact on the health care system seems to have ruffled some feathers at the White House.
