Health Care Rollout Failures May Be Albatross For Obama

WASHINGTON (October 26, 2013) For nearly five years, Republicans have struggled to make a scandal stick to President Barack Obama's White House, but one by one, the controversies, from Solyndra to Benghazi to Fast and Furious, hit a fever pitch, and then faded away.

But some Republicans see the disastrous rollout of Mr. Obama's health care law as a problem with the kind of staying power they’ve been seeking.

The health care failures are tangible for millions of Americans and can be experienced by anyone with Internet access.

The law itself is more closely associated with Mr. Obama personally, and long has been unpopular with the public.

The longer the technical problems persist, the more likely they are to affect the balance of enrollees needed in the insurance marketplace in order to keep costs down.
