With the government re-opened and the debt ceiling dispute deferred, President Obama and his team now face another big story this month: The error-ridden rollout of the new health care law.
Treasury Secretary Jack Lew went on NBC’s Meet The Press on Sunday to say that officials are working around the clock on Internet problems that are preventing people from signing up for new health care exchanges.
“I think that there’s no one more frustrated than the president at the difficulty in the website,” Lew said.
Obama himself plans to discuss the challenges Monday at what the White House is billing as a “health care event.”
USA TODAY reported that “the Federal Healthcare Exchange was built using ten-year-old technology that may require constant fixes and updates for the next six months and the eventual overhaul of the entire system.”
