House Speaker John A. Boehner said Thursday it took him "three to four hours" to sign up for Obamacare, but he made it through eventually.
Even as leading Democrats offered assurances to the contrary, government experts repeatedly warned that a new long-term care insurance plan could go belly up, saddling taxpayers with another underfunded benefit program, according to emails disclosed by congressional investigators.
How many federal bureaucrats does it take to carry out President Obama's health care overhaul? Don't expect to find an easy answer in his new budget.
"Nothing is being hidden," said Richard Sorian, a spokesman for the Health and Human Services Department, which is leading the effort to expand health coverage to more than 30 million uninsured people by 2014.
Most of the rest of the work will be handled by multitasking employees, Mr. Sorian said.
