Sebelius in the Senate: Senators Grill Embattled Secretary Over Botched Rollout
Sebelius faces lawmakers anew on health care law (AP)
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is returning to Capitol Hill for a fresh interrogation on the health care law, this time from senators with growing concerns about President Barack Obama's crowning legislative achievement.
Sebelius was due to face questions Wednesday from the Senate Finance Committee, whose chairman, Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., was a chief author of the 2010 law and remains a vocal defender. Yet in a measure of its troubled rollout, even he has concerns about the problem-plagued HealthCare.gov website and the potential security risks it poses for consumers' private information.
"I want it all to work, and security is one factor, one component. It has to be secure," Baucus told reporters Tuesday.
