Senators Grapple with Health Care Rollout Woes

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The senior administration official closest to the problem-plagued implementation of President Barack Obama's health care law is poised to answer questions from a Senate panel that wrote much of it.

Medicare chief Marilyn Tavenner will testify before the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions committee Tuesday. The website continues to have service problems and was out of service for 90 minutes on Monday.

Adding to website woes is the political fallout from a wave of cancellations reaching millions of consumers who currently buy individual policies. Those plans don't meet requirements of the law taking effect next year.

After the government shutdown sputtered out, Republicans seemed to have finally reached a dead end in their drive to repeal "Obamacare." But they're now relishing a fiasco handed to them by the administration.
