White House Downplays Obamacare Errors

The White House on Monday vowed they help the tens of thousands of ObamaCare enrollees who contend that the HealthCare.gov website improperly enrolled them during the sign-up process to purchase new insurance.

"We are going to get them help," White House press secretary Jay Carney said.

On Sunday, The Washington Post reported that approximately 22,000 Americans had filed appeals with the government to correct errors with their enrollment data. The complaints charge that the ObamaCare marketplace had charged them too much for insurance, incorrectly enrolled them or didn't enroll them at all.

According to the report, the administration has not been able to address the complaints yet because of persisting issues with the enrollment system.
