New 'deadline' for fixing Obamacare glitches seen in mid-Nov.

October 10. 2013 9:14PM

WASHINGTON (Reuters) — More than eight weeks after two Weare police officers were involved in the fatal shooting of an alleged drug dealer, it still will take several more weeks before the public learns the names of the officers and gets an initial report on what happened.

Problems with the federal marketplace’s entry portal serving 36 states, the website, continued for a 10th day on Thursday despite signs of gradual improvement, keeping a brake on the ability of consumers to shop for federally subsidized health coverage.

Poor turnout in enrollment would provide further ammunition for Republican foes of Obamacare, whose efforts to kill the law have culminated in a federal government shutdown that began on Oct. 1, coinciding with the launch of the health insurance exchanges nationwide.

Already on Thursday, Republican lawmakers in Congress launched a new investigation into the technical glitches.
