Republicans plan to seek answers from Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on the Obama administration's troubled debut of the website it is using to offer health insurance.
GOP officials said Sunday that the Obama administration will face intense scrutiny this week to be more forthcoming about how many people have actually succeeded in enrolling for coverage in the new insurance markets.
The head of Medicare is scheduled to appear during a House hearing on Tuesday, followed Wednesday by Sebelius before the House Energy and Commerce Committee. The officials will also be grilled on how such crippling technical problems could have gone undetected prior to the website's Oct. 1 launch.
