Revelations From Obamacare Failure Hearings

The Motley Fool's Market Checkup drills down on the hottest headlines and biggest market movers in the health-care sector. This episode focuses on the latest developments surrounding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

Obamacare's big health insurance exchange rollout has stumbled badly out of the gate. Its glitch-filled marketplaces are easy fodder for late-night comedians. So it's no surprise that Congress called the contractors responsible, including CGI Group, Experian, and UnitedHealth subsidiary Quality Systems, to detail how the failures happened and if Obamacare can be saved.

In this video, health-care analyst David Williamson discusses what he learned by watching the congressional hearing, including that there is more than enough blame to go around, the large number of failures during end-to-end testing, and why a popular travel site could help the Obama administration's planned "tech surge."
