After weeks of massive technical failures on HealthCare.gov, President Obama has directly acknowledged problems with the government’s online health insurance exchanges. The president said in an address yesterday that there was quote “no excuse” for the technical problems plaguing the health exchange portal site, and that the country’s top techies were working on a fix. Molly Wood of CNET fills Marketplace Tech host Ben Johnson in on the latest.
