WASHINGTON (AP) – Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has been taking more criticism on Capitol Hill today over the problem-plagued rollout of the government health care website.
Sebelius told the Senate Finance Committee that the site needed a couple of hundred fixes when it went online more than a month ago. She says more work needs to be done to fix it, but is rejecting suggestions that the system be taken off line until all repairs are made.
Republican Orrin Hatch told Sebelius that he’s glad she’s accepting responsibility for what he called “this disastrous rollout.” But he says he would have preferred that the administration had been “honest with us to begin with.”
Another Republican, Pat Roberts of Kansas, says if Sebelius is really the one who should be held accountable, then she should resign.
