Washington (CNN) - A source with knowledge of the technical operations for fixing the Obamacare website pushed back Wednesday on a report in the Washington Post that said software problems with the troubled healthcare website are unlikely to be resolved by the end of the month.
The Obama administration's Chief Information Officer, Todd Park, told a congressional committee Wednesday that healthcare.gov can currently handle barely half of its intended capacity.
(CNN) - Stale Chinese food. Half eaten pizzas. Three people crammed into offices designed for one. Tech experts crowded into conference rooms and sitting with laptops on the floor. A shortage of printers.
This is the scene at the Northern Virginia site where teams of tech experts are working to fix healthcare.gov, as described to CNN by two sources familiar with the facility.
Washington (CNN) - As the clock ticked toward a government shutdown last week, the White House and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid were at odds over whether President Barack Obama should sit down with congressional leaders.
According to a House Republican leadership aide, the White House and House Speaker John Boehner's office went back and forth over a time to meet to discuss averting a government shutdown – the plan was to meet this week, ahead of a Senate vote. The White House ended up nixing such a meeting, citing scheduling issues.
