Over two billion dollars on a single website and they still can’t get it right.
Via The Hill:
Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell is expecting at least some snags during the second year of ObamaCare sign-ups.
“We will have things that won’t go right. We will have outages, we will have downtime,” Burwell said Monday in a discussion hosted by the Center for American Progress.
Even after hundreds of federal workers spent months rebuilding the site, Burwell warned that some customers would run into glitches.
“Something will happen. What we need to do is be transparent, be fast and get it fixed,” Burwell said in one of her many public appearances ahead of open enrollment on Nov. 15.
The Obama administration has felt the pressure to improve the functioning of its much-maligned HealthCare.gov website. Burwell, formerly the head of the government budget office, was brought in after last year’s disastrous rollout, which prompted her predecessor, former HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, to resign.
