Kathleen Sebelius was in front of a congressional panel  taking a drubbing over the poor rollout of the Affordable Care Act.

 

U.S. Congressman Greg WAlden of Oregon was one of the lawmakers voicing his displeasure.

 

"I've got letters from constituents who are getting letters from their insurance companies saying they will no longer have coverage in their individual plans.  I heard from one woman who was paying $600 a month for her plan with a three thousand dollar deductible and now is paying $800 a month.  Another woman whose 40 hour job has been reduced to 29 hours.  Neither have enough income or health insurance because of the way the law is implemented."

 

Sebelius promised a vast majority of consumers will be able to shop online for health insurance at the federal website by the end of November.
