Washington D.C., October 23, 2013 — Rep. David Schweikert (R-AZ) released the following statement ahead of tomorrow’s Phoenix visit from Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius:
“Throughout the country there is mass confusion and uncertainty surrounding Obamacare and the online exchange. Secretary Sebelius has a responsibility to step forward and give the American people answers. Instead of appearing before Congress, the Secretary is touring a call center in Phoenix. She should take this time to give everyone the answers they deserve.
“How many people have successfully signed up on healthcare.gov? Why weren’t basic best practice guidelines utilized for the opening of the online exchange? How is it possible that after three years and hundreds-of-millions of taxpayer dollars spent, that HHS was caught ‘off-guard’ by website glitches? How much more will it cost to fix what’s wrong?
