HealthCare.gov Head Says Site Is Tested And ‘Ready To Go’
National Public Radio

It’s being challenged in the Supreme Court. Members of the new Republican Congress want to repeal it. But Obamacare will get a second chance on Saturday, when enrollment opens again in the government-sponsored health exchanges.

The Obama administration is expecting over 3 million new enrollees and almost 6 million return customers. And while the system faces some challenges, the government says it’s up to the task.

“We are ready to go,” says Kevin Counihan, the new CEO of HealthCare.gov. Counihan headed Connecticut’s successful Obamacare exchange and was named to head the federal website in August.
