“Democrats have frustration about the rollout and implementation because we want to do the right kind of oversight to make sure it works. Because that’s Congress’s job,” said Rep. Rick Larsen (D-Wash.). “General assurances aren’t going to make anyone feel better. The administration needs to be specific about what they’re doing to solve specific problems.” …

Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas) said only one person from his Austin area was able to get all the way through the clunky website to the end of the enrollment process.

“A lot of questions being asked of the administration,” said Rep. Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.) as he left the meeting. …

Even behind closed doors, the administration declined to say how many people have enrolled. Officials said last weekend that about a half million people had done the initial applications — but they’ve repeatedly said they won’t announce how many have actually enrolled in a health plan until November.

“If they have it, they’re not giving the number out,”said Rep. Michael Michaud (D-Maine). “We’re just tired of anecdotal answers to some of the problems.”
