According to Pulse of Radio,

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius appeared before the Senate Finance Committee Wednesday (November 6th), where she was pounded by Republicans over the rough rollout of the Affordable Care Act website. The GOP lawmakers also tried, without success, to get her to say President Obama deliberately misled the public about the program. Sebelius disclosed that the list for repairs for the healthcare.gov website had included what she called “a couple of hundred functional fixes” when the efforts to deal with the problems began last month, and said they’re still, quote, “not where we need to be,” although the website is now handling large amounts of material with fewer errors. Questioned about whether the cancellation notices some people in individual plans are getting violates the president’s pledge that no-one would have to give up their insurance if they didn’t want to, Sebelius sidestepped a direct answer, saying, “For the vast majority of people who get employer-based health care, are in a public plan, are in the VA plan, are in Medicare, are part of the insurance market, their plans are very much in place. There is change coming in the individual marketplace with consumer protections that many people have never” had. Sebelius did not respond to a request from Senator Pat Roberts of Kansas for her to resign.

These Republicans are something else.
