Sebelius Faces More Heat over Obamacare Debacle

The woman in charge of the failed rollout of the president's healthcare plan is facing more heat from lawmakers.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was back on Capitol Hill Tuesday, answering another round of questions on the debacle. This time, she faced the Senate Finance Committee.

Tuesday's hearing comes amid more security concerns about the Obamacare websites. As expected, Republican senators were ready to grill Sebelius.

"Who briefed you on the potential security risk if the launch went forward as planned?" Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, asked.

"We discussed security as part as the overall operation on a regular basis with our operations team. But no one I would say suggested that the risk outweighed the importance of moving forward." Sebelius responded.

"Well I've been suggesting that since April," Hatch replied.

Administration officials said the Federal exchange sites won't be working probably until the end of November.

That leaves people just two weeks to sign up if they want coverage by Jan 1. The extended deadline is March 1.
