Two Michigan congressmen at heart of Obamacare rollout debate

WASHINGTON D.C. (WTVB) - A pair of Republican Michigan Congressmen got in more digs on Health and Human Services Director Kathleen Sebelius on Wednesday as she accepted responsibility for the troubled rollout of Healthcare.gov, admitting it was a debacle, but also insisting that by the end of November it will be fixed.

Committee Chairman Congressman Fred Upton wanted to know how long the President has known that people might not get to keep their current coverage, as he promised their insurance wouldn’t get cancelled. Sebelius insisted that with government subsidies, many will get better coverage at a lower price.

Congressman Mike Rogers repeated claims that private customer information can’t be protected and that triggered an argument that had to be cut off in mid-stream.
