Former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs called on the Obama administration to be more forthcoming about Obamacare:

One reporter asked Gibbs: "Is the administration being as forthcoming as it could be or should be about what's working and what's not?"

"Well, look, I think, you know, the notion that it works for a vast majority of users, obviously, is as many have pointed out an arbitrary measure. We don't know the exact number. It is clear from reporting that people are having a better user experience," said Gibbs.

"Again, I think the pressure now will be on the administration to be more forthcoming about what's happening on the back-end and whether insurance companies are getting the information."
