Sebelius Apologizes for Healthcare.gov Rollout: "You Deserve Better"

Another day, another congressional hearing, another apology from an administration official for the troubled healthcare.gov rollout, (via the Politico):

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Wednesday that America "deserves better" than the botched Obamacare rollout. "You deserve better. I apologize. I'm accountable to you for fixing these problems and I'm committed to earning your confidence back by fixing the site," Sebelius told the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

House Republicans have been calling for Sebelius to be fired for weeks, so she's no doubt in for a long day on the hill. Weigel, our man on the ground, will have more on the day's action later today, but in the meantime you can follow along above.
