    President Barack Obama didn't know about the problems with the Affordable Care Act's website -- despite complaints from insurance companies and the site's crashing during a test run -- until days into its now well-documented abysmal launch, the nation's health chief told CNN on Tuesday. In an exclusive interview with CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius admitted Tuesday that there is significant concern in her department and the White House over the technical debacle surrounding the Obamacare website's rollout. The site was supposed to make it simple for people to search and sign-up for new...

    According to Kathleen Sebelius, Barack Obama knew nothing, absolutely nothing, about the fundamental problems with the Oct. 1 roll-out of his namesake legislation that will affect nearly one-fifth of the nation's economy. He didn't know about the last-minute test of the website expected to handle millions of customers and how it had crashed when only a few hundred samplers tried to get on at the same time. He had no idea that IT people had been expressing deep concerns for months that the site costing hundreds of millions of dollars was being constructed like an "Our Gang" clubhouse. According to...

    Before it even launched, red flags went up about the Obamacare website. Health insurance companies complained about it, and the site crashed during a test run. But nobody told the President of any of it, the nation's health chief told CNN. Kathleen Sebelius said President Barack Obama didn't hear that there may be problems with the sign-up portal for his signature health care law until it went live on October 1. That's when the site nosedived into a technical abyss.

    Sebelius: Obama didn't know about tech issues Dylan Stableford, Yahoo News By Dylan Stableford, Yahoo News 1 hour ago The woman at the center of the firestorm surrounding the tech-plagued launch of the Obamacare website says President Barack Obama was not informed of potential red flags until it went live. In an interview with CNN's Sanjay Gupta on Tuesday, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said the president was told of problems with the site in the "first couple of days" after the Oct. 1 launch of HealthCare.gov, but not before. "Nobody says the site is working the way...

    President Obama told the nation there is “no excuse” for the disastrous rollout of the health-care exchanges that are central to Obamacare. But that didn’t stop Kathleen Sebelius, his secretary of Health and Human Services in overall charge of the project, from making excuses in a CNN interview with Dr. Sanjay Gupta yesterday. She claimed to Gupta that President Obama hadn’t been told of any potential problems prior to the launch of the exchanges on October 1 — a dereliction of duty anyway one defines it. But there was also this startling explanation of what went wrong at HHS: “We...

    ... Obama did not know HealthCare.gov faced technical problems before it went live, U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said. "I think it became clear" to Obama in "the first couple of days," she told CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360" Tuesday. She answered, "No, sir" when asked if Obama knew about the malfunctions and misfires before the website's Oct. 1 start. "I think that we talked about having testing going forward," she said of White House and HHS discussions before the site went public. "If we had an ideal situation and could have built a product in a five-year...
