Outgoing Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says the timeline for the ObamaCare rollout was “flat-out wrong” and that the federal exchange could have used “more time and testing” before going online.
Sebelius, who led the agency through the problem-plagued rollout, made her comments in an interview that aired Sunday on “NBC’s “Meet the Press,” the first interview since she announced her resignation Thursday.
“Clearly, the estimate that it was ready to go Oct. 1 was just flat-out wrong,” she said Sunday.
Sebelius also said the roughly first eight weeks of the glitch-filled rollout was the low point of her five years as secretary.
Still, she defended the President Obama’s signature law, arguing millions of Americans now have access to health care because of it.
