WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama’s health secretary is in the hot seat this week as House Republicans get a chance to question her about the troubled rollout of the health care law they long have tried to repeal.
The GOP-run House Energy and Commerce Committee hears from Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Wednesday about the troubled launch of healthcare.gov, the online portal access insurance exchanges.
The committee’s second-ranking Republican, Rep. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, wants to know how much has been spent on the website, how much more it will cost to fix the problems, when everything will be ready and what people should expect to see on the site.
She tells “Fox News Sunday” she’s concerned about protecting the privacy of information that people submit.
