CNN BREAKING NEWS –
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius apologized Wednesday to Americans for the “miserably frustrating experience” caused by problems with the Obamacare website.
Sebelius told a House committee that the “vast majority” of consumers will be able to shop online for health insurance under Obamacare by the end of November without the problems being experienced now.
In an advance copy of her testimony, Sebelius says it’s frustrating and unacceptable that the site has not lived up to its expectations.
However, she said Obamacare has delivered on its central promise to provide affordable healthcare.
“Over the past few weeks, millions of Americans have visited HealthCare.gov to look at their new health coverage options under the Affordable Care Act,” Sebelius says. “In that time, nearly 700,000 applications have been submitted to the federal and state marketplaces from across the nation. This tremendous interest — with over 20 million unique visits to date to HealthCare.gov — confirms that the American people are looking for quality, affordable health coverage.”
