    Washington Week Healthcare.gov Repairs Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius apologized to Americans for the ongoing problems with Healthcare.gov during a hearing on Capitol Hill this week, and tried to assure everyone that the website's technical "glitches" are fixable.

He also tried to clarify that insurance companies are canceling some "substandard" plans that do not meet the new healthcare law's minimum coverage requirements, but that policy holders affected will be given a choice of other more comprehensive plans. Karen Tumulty of The Washington Post and Alexis Simendinger of RealClearPolitics join the program to discuss the continuing efforts by the Obama administration to repair the healthcare website, sell the benefits of the Affordable Care Act and restore its credibility.
