Obama administration officials tasked with fixing the Obamacare website problems referred to themselves as the “Tiger Team.”

The inter-departmental Tiger Team snapped into action following the administration’s disastrous Obamacare rollout in early October, and convened super important Tiger Team meetings that stopped on Oct. 15, according to newly released internal administration memos reviewed by ABC News.

The president didn’t want it to have to come to this, but with the glitch-ridden Obamacare site on the line, there was only group of specialists he could call on. Only one group of specialists who could save health-care reform for our children’s future.

And if you thought the Tiger Team was done on Oct. 15, then obviously you don’t know the Tiger Team. They continued to discuss “urgent topics” even after their meetings ended.

Though the term Tiger Team has been employed before in security-related matters since at least the 1960s, there’s no rule stating that these people had to call themselves that.

Don’t mess with the Tiger Team, guys.
