"I haven't had any conversation with [Obama] and I think that I would steer you to HHS since it involves Medicaid funding. I don't really have any comment. I'm not going to negotiate on behalf of the president or venture a guess on what he may or may not be open to. Again, on the specific issue of Medicaid funding, I'll send you to HHS."
- White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, in response to questions about whether President Obama has a position on reparative "ex-gay" therapy and whether the therapy should be covered under Medicaid.
