    Sebelius Event in Pittsburgh Turns Into Debacle

    Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius had a front-row view of the problems plaguing the website that the government established to allow people to shop for health insurance under Obamacare.


    Sebelius and Steelers Chairman Dan Rooney were at an enrollment and education event on Thursday at Heinz Field to promote Healthcare.gov, but people who showed up encountered problems in signing up for coverage on the website.

    About 20 people armed with laptops and certified by the government to sign up people for coverage were meeting with uninsured people, answering questions and fruitlessly trying to access the website.

    LaKesha Lowry, 41, came to the event to find out about her health insurance options. But the North Side resident said she was not able to access the site, even with the help of a certified application counselor.

    “It said, ‘Try again later,' ” Lowry said.

    Affordable Care Act, Steelers have much in common

    The list of problems impacting Sebelius and the Steelers includes:

    Coverage issues

    Sebelius: The uninsured have experienced difficulty enrolling in the medical coverage.

    Steelers: The secondary has experienced difficulty executing the pass coverage.


    A critical weakness

    Sebelius: Has grossly underperforming website software.

    Steelers: Have grossly underperforming offensive line.


    Speed issues

    Sebelius: Health care website pages infuriate enrollees because they load too slowly.

    Steelers: Aging defense infuriates fans because it plays too slowly.



    Uncertain prospects

    Sebelius: Can't guarantee frequently frustrated enrollees they'll make it to the end of the online health care application.

    Steelers: Can't guarantee always running-for-his-life quarterback Ben Roethlisberger that he'll live to see the end of the football season.
