Hatch To Sebelius: 'Untruthful' On 'Obamacare'

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Orrin Hatch says the Obama administration had been "untruthful" before the health care law's troubled rollout.
    
The Utah Republican told Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Wednesday that he wishes she had been honest with the nation about what she knew about computer problems and the millions of insurance cancellation notices that Americans have received. That, he said, counters the president's promise that people who like their insurance can keep it.
    
"No more excuses," Hatch, the Senate Finance Committee's senior Republican, told Sebelius. Last week before a House committee, Sebelius apologized and took responsibility for what she agreed was "a debacle."

    WASHINGTON (AP) - A woman close to the man charged with killing 17 people at a Florida high school warned the FBI he had rifles and said, "I know he is going to explode." That's according to a transcript of the Jan. 5 tip to the FBI's call center, which was obtained Friday by The Associated Press. The FBI has acknowledged it failed to investigate the tip about 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz. But the transcript, first reported by The Wall Street Journal, provides new details.
