Is Kathleen Sebelius to blame for Obamacare website meltdown?

An official from the department of health and human services tells CNN that the glitch filled Obamacare enrollment website will be coming down this weekend for maintenance.

This announcement comes on the same day that new problems with the rollout were exposed and an official from the Health and Human Services Department said Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will not be available to answer questions at a congressional hearing next week on what went wrong.

Republicans continue to call for Secretary Sebelius to be fired.

So who should be held accountable for these problems?

OutFront: Sean Spicer – the Communications Director at the Republican National Committee and John Avlon – the executive editor for The Daily Beast.

    How come an American company was not selected to create the website for the rollout of affordable health care? Why was this expensive program outsourced to Canada by our government?

    Isn't it the time of year when she's up here in Leland looking for golf balls in the woods off the 13th hole?
