(Washington, DC) -- Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius continues to be on the hot seat. Testifying in a House hearing, Sebelius assured lawmakers that HealthCare.Gov is working much better since its disastrous launch in October.
Enrollment in the new healthcare exchanges more than doubled in November to about 250-thousand people. A total of 365-thousand had successfully selected health care plans nationwide as of the end of last month. That's still far below an initial target of more than one million. Secretary Sebelius said the error rate on HealthCare.Gov has dropped to below one percent. She also noted that she has ordered a broad, internal investigation into the flawed launch of the website.
Moving forward, Secretary Sebelius continues to be optimistic.
Illinois Republican John Shimkus expressed frustration about Sebelius' responses to his questions.
Democrats objected when Shimkus repeatedly cut Sebelius off.
