Obama Still On the Defensive Over Obamacare

Rollout of healthcare.gov has been a disaster


President Obama and aides continue to play defense when it comes to health care.

The House Energy and Commerce Committee held a hearing Tuesday on a management study indicating that Obama administration officials were warned as early as March about potential problems with the health care website.

The study, by the firm of McKinsey & Co., said that "senior administration officials at the White House and Department of Health and Human Services were aware of the concerns about meeting the Oct. 1 launch date" for the website, said a statement from the Republican-run committee.
