Obamacare website to work ‘smoothly’ by end of November, White House says

The government has finally set a deadline for fixing the troubled HealthCare.gov.  According to a Reuters report, Jeffrey Zients, the Obama administration’s new point man for the project, said the site would be working “successfully and smoothly” for the “vast majority” of consumers by the end of November. The news comes after a week of Congressional hearings and statements by the president about the rocky rollout of the new online health insurance exchanges. The administration is under pressure to show progress but will undoubtedly face a new round of criticism if it fails to meet its new goal.
