Rep. Nolan: Obama 'should man up' on health care glitches, 'heads should roll'

Posted: Updated:

Republicans aren't the only ones demanding answers when it comes to the website problems plaguing the federal website for the health insurance exchange. One Democrat from Minnesota isn't holding back.

It seems even members of President Barack Obama's own party are getting fed up, and Rep. Rick Nolan didn't pull any punches on Wednesday.

"I think the president should man up and let us know who is responsible, who is in charge here and fire 'em," the congressman, who represents Minnesota's 8th District, said. "There were people that knew it was not ready. They should have had it ready. Minnesota got it ready; Kentucky got it ready; California got it ready.... The federal government should have gotten it ready, and some heads should roll for this failure."

The White House has promised daily briefings on the progress of fixing the website. Those are scheduled to start on Thursday.

There are also reports that the Obama administration may delay the requirement deadline by as much as 6 weeks due to the ongoing glitches.
