The House Energy and Commerce Committee is overseeing the healthcare law and is having several top contractors responsible for the technology, testify.
"This isn't a partisan issue about healthcare. People expect this thing to work. This reminds me of Oregon back in the late 80's when we had a change at the DMV and it cost 50 to 60 million and we ended up scrapping the whole thing. I don't want this to be a failure. I want to get this fixed. CMS didn't give you standard time to test it, so every American thinks they tell me it's ready. I'm ready to go."
CMS stands for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
