The head of the agency running the troubled federal government health insurance website apologized for the website’s problems Tuesday , promising once again that they would be fixed.
Members of the House Ways and Means Committee immediately lit into Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Director Marilyn Tavenner, demanding to know why Americans should trust that the troubled website, or even the entire health care law, will ever work.
“While the website can eventually be fixed, the widespread problems of Obamacare cannot,” panel chairman Dave Camp, a Michigan Republican, said in his opening statement. “These problems can’t be fixed through a tech surge.”
