President Obama has expressed frustration to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius about HealthCare.gov and made it clear behind closed doors that it is her responsibility to fix the problematic launch, The Hill reports.
Republican lawmakers are calling for her resignation, but Obama has remained loyal and confident in the secretary. In fact, he has not even considered firing Sebelius, National Journal reports.
Yet the problems plaguing the Obamacare enrollment site threaten to jeopardize the president’s signature legislative achievement, and he is undoubtedly anxious about the need for successful and swift repairs to the website.
Sebelius is set to testify before the House Energy and Commerce Committee on Wednesday.
