Sebelius Apologizes for Health Site's Malfunctions

WASHINGTON, D.C. - We asked you if you think Sebelius should resign. 83% of you said yes. Now FOX17 National Correspondent Kristine Frazou poses the question: Should anyone else be held accountable? The question about the flawed roll out of the Affordable Care Act website Healthcare.gov has yet to be answered. Fingers have been pointed. Apologies issued from the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services and from Secretary Sebelius herself. So who should be held accountable for such a flawed roll out? HHS Secretary Sebelius? President Obama? Someone else?

After a month of glitches and error messages, many Americans wonder if a bigger system needs fixing as well: the government. Matt Eyles is the Executive Vice President with Avalere Health and had a more broad answer. The Administration has been quick to blame the contractors who built the website. Contractors say they raised the red flag. Now millions of Americans who were promised an easy transition to health care coverage seem caught between a health care website that doesn't work, and no one in Washington who's willing to take responsibility for the failure.

It's a promise that seems still a long way from being fulfilled, and some, like Bob Laszewski who writes a popular healthcare reform blog, are less forgiving.
