Opinion: Health reform's problems run deeper than a glitchy website

Bangor Daily News, November 15, 2013

Serious problems with the websites created by the Affordable Care Act continue, and probably will for a long time. Although frantic efforts at incrementally improving them are being made by the Obama administration, and some sites are working better than others, they are a long way from working well.

There is growing frustration and anger at the administration in Congress from both Democrats and Republicans.
