Questions and concerns among lawmakers continue to mount, and not only among Republicans. Democrats, who voted for the law and have staked their political reputation defending it, are starting to get nervous.
Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire was the first to suggest that Obama delay the fine for people who don't sign up. Shaheen, who is up for re-election in 2014, is asking the Obama administration to extend open enrollment past March 31.
Though Sebelius didn't respond specifically to Shaheen's request, she said officials are not looking at postponing the Jan. 1 date to obtain benefits.
"Waiting is not really an option," she said, adding that people are signing up and that people have been wanting health care for "decades."
Reluctant to focus his critique solely on the website, Boehner says the problems go well beyond the application portal.
"Clearly, there's problems with the website, but I would argue that the problems go much further than that," Boehner said. "More Americans are going to lose their health insurance than are going to sign up at these exchanges. This is a very serious problem."
Rep. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., said Wednesday that "the real glitch is the law itself."
"People are frustrated with the website, but the product is there. The prices are good. It will not sell out, and the prices will not change," Sebelius said, attempting to reassure Americans that website problems won't diminish the services offered.
Unfortunately, not everyone has been able to access those services. And the administration can't explain what the problem is and when it will be fixed.
